Annual plug for "A Night in the Lonesome October"

The late Roger Zelazny's Hallowe'en novel that comprised a unique love story and has five major plot twists in the last ten pages. And full of Zelazny's lyricism and wit.

Lyrics you must respond to.

Do you ever hear a song with lyrics that, every time you hear them, you just have to respond? I can think of a couple of examples right off:

Simon and Garfunkle, "America"

"Cathy, I'm lost, I said, though I knew she was sleeping.
I'm empty and aching and I don't know why."

Every time I hear that, I just have to reply "Well, maybe if you talked to her when she was awake, you might figure it out."

Or the Beatles, "I Saw Her Standing There"

"Well she was just seventeen, you know what I mean."

Well, no, actually John, I don't.
