Inspired by the title of a book on the floor of a unit in Hong Kong.

The game is simple: I start with a word or short phrase and you reply with one which is its opposite; either literally or thematically or musically or - well, you get the idea. You then submit a new word for someone else to respond to. We can work the rest out as we go.

[EDIT 1] Feel free to explain your answer if you think it is somewhat unusual or you think that people might find it difficult to work out why you chose it.

 

First one:

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Just a note that, due to forum rules changes, from now on this thread should be Beatles-only. Thanks!

Can buy me love! Please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes
Or buy my paperback/ebook! Riding So High – The Beatles and Drugs

Don't miss The Bowie Bible – now live!
