    Songs with similar First Lines

    James Taylor: "There's something about the way she moves"
    George Harrison: "Something about the way she moves"

    This was a deliberate lift, which Harrison probably thought was justified by the fact Taylor was on Apple.

    John Lennon nicked "Here come old flat top" from Chuck Berry but it wasn't an opening line:

    I bought a brand-new air-mobile
    It custom-made, 'twas a Flight De Ville
    With a pow'ful motor and some hideaway wings
    Push in on the button and you can hear her sing
    Now you can't catch me, baby you can't catch me
    'Cause if you get too close, you know I'm gone like a cool breeze
    New Jersey Turnpike in the wee wee hours
    I was rollin' slowly 'cause of drizzlin' showers
    Here come a flat-top, he was movin' up with me
    Then come wavin' by me in a little' old souped-up jitney
    I put my foot on my tank and I began to roll
    Moanin' siren, 'twas the state patrol
    So I let out my wings and then I blew my horn
    Bye bye New Jersey, I've become airborne

        I think I misheard it as "dessert loving"

            "Warden threw a party at the county jail..."
            (Elvis Presley)

            "I went to a party at the local county jail..."
            (10cc)

            (It's a deliberate parody, so probably doesn't really count.)
