A line from One is the UK's favourite song lyric, acording to a poll conducted by music channel VH1. "One life, with each other, sisters, brothers" topped a poll of 13,000 people by music channel VH1 - holding off memorable lines from The Smiths, Nirvana, Bob Marley and Coldplay.

to die."
3. Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit. "I feel stupid and contagious, here we are now, entertain us."
4. Bob Marley - Redemption Song. "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds, have no fear for atomic energy, 'cause none of them can stop the time."
5. Coldplay - Yellow. "Look at the stars, look how they shine for you."
