That has to be one of the best lines in pop music ever and it comes courtesy of the musical genius known as Pet Shop Boys in their 1985 hit Opportunities (Let's Make Lots of Money). (The song was actually released twice, in '85 and again in '86.)
The song didn't make it as big as West End Girls on the U.S. pop charts, which I never understood. This song really expresses the angst and cynicism of younger generation during the greed-obsessed, self-absorbed yuppie (young urban professional) generation of the 80's in a way that few pop songs did.
