So as I was saying, I think everyone needs a Beastie Boys lyrics as their own personal theme song.

Ally McBeal might have better luck if instead of "Tell Him" she used this little rhyme.

"Never been dumped 'cause I'm the most mackinest, Never been jumped 'cause I'm known the most packinest"

Aww yeah. So what's your line?

I had to really think about this one... so many good ones to pick from, but i had to go with one from "License to Ill" since that's the album that was cool when I was cool. HA!

". I'm hated, confrontated for the juice that I have All the fly ladies are making a fuss But I can't pay attention - 'cause I'm on that dust"

Oh yeah, that just about sums it up.

Oh the memories...ninth grade we used to walk the street singing Paul Revere at the top of our lung. I got to be Missy D. (aka Mike D.)

"I got more juice than Picasso's got paint, I got rhymes that are rough and rhymes that are slick. I'm not surprised you're on..MIKE D.."

OK, it doesn't rhyme and it's hardly a Beastie lyric, but the tongue in cheek of this one says it all for me:

"Our evening began in Peter Seychelles comfortable study in his New York town house where the candle light was just right, the Hi-Fi was in the background and the wine was delicious.

"What's the secret Peter?"

"Naturally, I'll say it's the wine"

"Mmm, it does go well with the chicken"

Delicious again Peter."

I have to say tho when it comes to B Boy lyrics, this one does it for me:

"Let your back bone flip but don't slip a disc Let your spine unwind just take a risk I wanna do the freak until the break of dawn Tell me party people is that so wrong"

Good question Mar, Let's have some more posers like this.

Like sand in one hand/You can't hold on for long/Like scheming on a plan/That goes all wrong...

That's mine. I'm not even sure why, but I freaking love that song, that line in particular.

My fave Beastie Boys line:

You pops caught you smoking and he said, "No way!" That hypocrite smokes two packs a day Man, living at home is such a drag Now your mom threw away your best porno mag Bust it!

I'm more of a Bowie lyric person myself.

E.g.: ...oh no, don't say it's true!
They got a message from the Action Man
I'm happy, hope you're happy, too
I've loved all, i've needed love...
sordid details following
the little green wheels are following
(oh no not again)
I'm stuck with a valuable friend
I'm happy; hope you're happy, too...
one flash of light
but no smoking pistol
i've never done good things
i've never done bad thingsi never did anything out of the blue
want an axe to break the ice!
want to come down right now...


Mars happy nation sit on my karma
Dame meditation take me away...
Little wonder then, little wonder..
You little wonder, little wonder, you!


She's so swishy in her satin and tat
In her frock coat and bipperty-bopperty hat
Oh God, I could do better than that!


OK, to play nice..."Until your back's up against the wall
You never know yourself that much at all
So you've got to share your love with a friend
That's all that you've got left in the end..."

My all time favorite Beastie line is on their single, "Cookie Puss", when they prank Carvel, and Mike D. says to the salesgirl:

"Yo, Bitch, I'll HOUSE you.. Where's Cookie Puss at?

Oh! Oh! I had forgotten what my ALL TIME favorite line was, and it came to me like a bolt of lightning...

"A long distance from my girl, and I'm talkin on the cellular She said that she was sorry and I said Yeah the hell you were"

Anyone who comes up with the rhyme cellular/hellyouwere is far beyond genius level.
