Write on Wednesday - Write the music

Yes I know it's Friday but for some reason I haven't a had the opportunity to do Write on Wednesday yet. But I noticed that Gill's linky is still open for a few hours so I thought I would give it a go.
Write On Wednesdays Exercise 5: Write the Music - A bit of choice this week: Pick your favorite song and write down the first line of lyrics OR turn on the radio and write down the first line of lyrics you hear. Then set your timer for 5 minutes and write the first words that come into your head after your writing prompt. Stop when the buzzer rings! Do this exercise over and over if you wish.
So my favourite song... Well that is a bit of a tough one. Currently the CD that gets the most air time in the car is a Queen one. So I had chosen a song I want played at my funeral (yes, sorry a little morbid) We are the Champions. I even cheated by using the first two lines of the song.
I've paid my dues, time after time...
But I found I couldn't use that song as I just wanted to write the lyrics down.
Okay onto my next choice...Bohemian Rhapsody.
Is this the real life
No, Houston, we have a problem. Of course it's bloody real life. What the hell are you thinking?

God, I don't know. Somedays I think that I'm just a part of a a bloody reality TV show. Nobody's life can be as screwed up as mine.

Gee, d'ya think? You not are the only one with issues you know. It's not all about you. Why the hell do you think it is? What makes you so bloody special?

Gees. Pissed are you? Good. About time you got snapped out of your delusions of adequacy. Oh wait, I mean your delusion that the world revolves around you.
Ouch. That was a bit harsh. I can see you good friends talking like this but it took a really weird turn for me. Especially being all dialogue. For some reason I thought it was going to be the guy from the faked alien encounter back at Exercise 3: Two Fat Ladies but now I'm not so sure.
Join in the fun by reading all the entries for this week over at Ink Paper Pen.

Oh cool, glad you linked up! Yes, I am keeping the linky open till late Friday now - gives us all a bit more time.

I love how you couldn't do the first song, that you wanted to write the lyrics! Your piece did remind me of a few of your others. The use of dialogue is interesting to me. Full of energy and feeling, I like that.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one scraping in at the eleventh hour this week. I managed to post my link late Friday as well.

I like this snippet of dialogue. It made me wonder what had gone before - was this a continuation of a conversation or the start of one with the first speaker sort of thinking out loud only to be countered by the second speaker.

It would be interesting to have some indication of the tone of the speakers. A often speak in a similar way with a good friend, however we are always joking around with lots of smiles and eye rolling and humour in our tone. the dialogue would read differently if the words were short and sharp.
