I'm a sucker for quirky little things in songs. Like in Dwight Yoakam's great "Guitars, Cadillacs,..." where he sings "another lesson 'bout a naive fool who came to Babylon...".

Only he pronounces "naive" the way I did as a kid, rhyming it was "rave". There's something a little naive in that, hence the kick.

Another simple song I enjoyed was Travis Tritt's "Here's a Quarter, Call Someone Who Cares". There's a line about his ex's "sordid affairs", which sounded near enough to "assorted affairs". For some reason I liked the latter better.
