Music has always been in my family, but it was mainly keyboards. I learned to play classical piano, but when I first heard the amazing bass guitar of James Jamerson, who played on all the big Motown hits of the ’60s and ’70s, I knew bass guitar was my instrument.

When I’m playing comedy, I never do ‘jokes.’ Sometimes I’ll deliver a line in a way I think is more likely to get a laugh, but all the best comedy is played straight. What’s funny is the way it hits the world around it or the way it hits the other characters.

Exhilaration is that feeling you get just after a great idea hits you, and just before you realize what’s wrong with it.

I try to be careful to not just say it’s a greatest hits show because we’ve also made efforts to keep people up to date so to speak because we continually write and record and put out albums.

Every now and then, Prince decides to try being a normal rock star. You know, the kind who does a professional arena tour where he plays the hits.

I could remember thinking when I met him, ‘Wow, that’s Andy Sanders from Houston. He’s really good.’ And he tells me he said, ‘Wow, that’s Jimmy Walker. He hits it really far.’
Our songs did not transcend being R&B hits. They were R&B hits that white kids were attracted to. And if people bought it, it became rock & roll. That’s marketing. Why couldn’t it still be R&B? The bass pattern didn’t change. The song didn’t change. It was still ‘Yakety Yak’ and ‘Searchin’.’
I don’t really compare myself to a lot of other running backs – that’s no offense to any other running back, but just the fact that I can see and avoid hits.

After ‘Sports’ came out in the fall of 1983, everything changed for me. Four of the album’s singles became top-10 hits, and by the end of June in 1984, the album was No. 1 on the Billboard chart. It was quite a ride, and for the first time I had enough money to live the way I wanted.
I buy 1920s iridescent Scottish glass. I love the way the sun hits it every morning. You touch something and you know. To me, people should buy something they love. Buy something you’d want to come downstairs and stroke.

Every portfolio benefits from bonds; they provide a cushion when the stock market hits a rough patch. But avoiding stocks completely could mean your investment won’t grow any faster than the rate of inflation.

Most people have already seen a cosmic collision. If you’ve seen a shooting star ever, you’ve seen a cosmic collision, because a shooting star is not a star. It’s a tiny dust or pea sized fragment of an asteroid or a comet hitting our atmosphere and burning up as it hits in, as it comes in.

There’s Jay-Z, who morphs a certain street hustler’s cool and indifference into CEO extravagance. But for all his prominence, Jay-Z hasn’t written a lot of crossover hits.
The fear really hits you. That’s what you feel first. And then it’s the anger and frustration. Part of the problem is how little we understand about the ultimate betrayal of the body when it rebels against itself.

My hits are not hits.
I couldn’t go on an ’80s package show or anything like that. I have a lot more to give. If you go down that road completely I think you’ll stay with a certain type of audience. Again I’m not knocking it. People go for the fun of the hits, it’s what they’ve grown up with.
Not sure how I can be ‘terminated’ from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of their biggest hits. But that’s something for the lawyers to figure out.

As we get older… I don’t know a single person who has devoted their life to musical theatre who hasn’t had a couple of misses as well as a bunch of hits. The misses, we learn a great deal from them.
We have audiences within our audiences who only care about the greatest hits – but new material brings vitality to the set, and should stop you calcifying and being a museum piece.
I am only as good as my last song. Hits are a pension, but I don’t want to rest on those songs. I want to have a future.
When I do a 30-minute meal, for instance, on Food Network, that’s my food you see at the end of the show and it’s not perfect. And if sometimes things break or drop or the pasta hits the wall when I’m draining it, they never stop tape. They just kind of let me go with it.
In financial services, the front end of the world operates at super-high speeds: comparative advantages are measured in fractions of nanoseconds. And yet back end processes – the amount of time you have to wait when you sell a stock before cash hits your account – can take days.
One of the great things about ‘The Voice’ is that all the judges sing their own hits, as well as covers, and do duets with each other.

I know music is just powerful in itself and to have someone say the words that I sat down and wrote changed their life or made them feel a certain way, that hits something in you.
We need to let the referee’s sole thing be to protect the quarterback and get those late hits out of there. They even have a stat on television that says ‘knockdowns.’ Knockdowns means that you knock him down after he throws the ball. The assumption is, if it’s legal, we’ll make excuses for them.
Me, I’m not a guy who’s dealt with a lot of death in my life, so when it hits you, it hits hard, you question different things.
I think it’s time to do clean-up for a generation. I believe this is one of the movies that hits home for all colors and all races. Everybody I talk to, black or white, suburban, rich or poor, can relate to rejection, can relate to not having a father or a mother.
Listen, if anyone hits you on the chin you are probably going to get hurt.
I have, obviously, a very complex relationship with the more industrial side of filmmaking and the machinery that can take an actor or an actress and create something so bamboozling and monumental and fathomless in terms of publicity hits.

Anyone who has played the game professionally, you’re always taught that the ball is the most important, most precious thing, so when the ball hits the ground, it’s always a mad scramble. It’s amazing how many times there is a fumble, and the person who recovers it initially doesn’t walk away with the ball.
I write when the urge hits me, getting the words down as fast as I can type and then I step back from what I just wrote and start a dialectical process where I begin challenging my own writing.
I feel like Eurovision is a parallel dimension. It reminds me of ‘Dance Fever’ and ‘Solid Gold’ when I was a kid. Then when you hear these songs sung in English by someone who may or may not understand the words, the unique awesomeness hits you.
I’m kind of a little allergic to that whole, ‘Let’s go to L.A. and write a bunch of hits.’
We know we cannot underestimate the importance of emergency planning in our region, nor can we assume we’ll have ample warning time. If an earthquake or terrorist attack hits, we won’t necessarily have advance alerts or opportunities to double- and triple-check our plans.

I’m not afraid to call a wine that tastes like Skittles or green peppers mixed with orange marmalade. I’ll say, ‘It tastes like chicken.’ I mean, that’s not what people think of when they think of wine, but that’s what it tastes like to me and it hits home.
‘Limbo’ has been one of the greatest hits of my career. A great response all over the world, not just Latinos but people in Europe and America.
Im sure most artists say this, but my favorite songs are not the hits.
You just take your hits on the chin and move on, that’s life.
QB’s have it good. They don’t take any hits. They have the most pay. The most glamour.
Being young, working class, and black, everything you do is policed. If someone hits you and you hit back, you are aggressive. If you cry, you are weak. You are kind of always pretending to be something.
I’m trying to be like the old Roc- A-Fella and Bad Boy, influencing people culturally but having hits at the same time.

I know my overseas fan base is huge because of the hits on my website.
I think every player hits a little bit of doubt. But if you are strong, you are supposed to be strong mentally because that’s our job and you know what you can do. So you are like, ‘A’ight cool, I’ma be all right. I’m going to figure this out.’
Hits and flops will always be there for any actor.
I don’t have a special place or ritual for writing songs, basically I write songs whenever an idea hits me, in my hotel room, on the road, in the plane.
I get tips from Bob Gaudio. And one of my songs somehow caught the attention of one of my idols, Marty Panzer, who wrote big hits for Barry Manilow. So two guys who inspired me to write lyrics are now teaching me to write.
Record labels collude with some of the radio stations, and the radio stations have their play lists, dependent upon what they call the, quote, ‘hits.’ What’s commercially viable gets recycled, endlessly repeated, and as a result of that, the progressive music can’t break in.
There’s only a couple stats that matter. No one cares how many blocked shots a guy has, how many hits.
I’m not a one-hit wonder as some suggest. I’ve had a couple of hits, but still, all of my hits were in the ’70s. There was pretty much nothing in the ’80s, ’90s, or in the first full decade into the next millennium.
There’s a lot of demand to hear the new Kanye West album before it hits the streets. There’s much less demand to read the new Phillip Roth novel.

When life hits you pretty hard, you can go into a dark corner.
I’m not just looking for hits.
I’ve sung lead on nearly all the big Boney M hits.

It’s not always caving to pressure: Sometimes criticism hits close to home; sometimes criticism changes our minds about something we’ve put out into the world.
When the band were really big and we had massive hits, I was always stressed-out and insecure. I thought I wanted the band to be really popular, but when that happened, there was so much pressure to keep it going.

Perhaps the number of new hits is not being noted the way it was done in the era of records or cassettes with the emergence of Internet.
Hits and runs are the numbers that really impress me. It means you’re contributing a lot to your team by being in the lineup every single day, and scoring runs is how you win games.
I feel that the movie in which I’ve played a cop or army man have been bigger hits. That’s why people remember me more as a cop or army person. I’ve even noticed that a lot of films in which I’ve played a variety of wonderful roles haven’t done well.
Ninety per cent of my movies were hits.
It’s very fun to be the hunter of the sounds. The hunter of the right energy. And it’s not really about if every sound is correct; it’s more the energy – if it hits you in some way, it doesn’t really matter to me if it’s not perfect. I’m still very excited while hunting for songs.
We spend to pretend that we’re upper class. And when the dust clears – when bankruptcy hits or a family member bails us out of our stupidity – there’s nothing left over. Nothing for the kids’ college tuition, no investment to grow our wealth, no rainy-day fund if someone loses her job.
I can still take the hits; it’s not a problem for me. I accept the blows. I can take the punches like a boxer.
Apple Music is trying to create an entire pop culture experience that includes audio and video. If South Park walks into my office, I’m not going to say, ‘You’re not musicians.’ We’re going to do whatever hits pop culture smack on the nose.
I’m a huge fan of Renaissance art. It’s very direct. They’re paintings that hit you in the face in the same immediate way that a huge pop tune hits you in the face.
On draft day, I wasn’t really nervous at all. Then you turn on the draft, the first five picks go by, and then you still thinking, ‘Oh man, I don’t know where I’m going to go.’ It’s really just, by the time draft hits, that’s when you get nervous.
In the Rodgers and Hammerstein generation, popular hits came out of shows and movies.
Because even at the age of fifteen, I used to go see all the Broadway shows and feel that they were sentimental, that they were pandering to the audience and trying to manipulate the audience. I had no use for practically any of the shows that were hits.
‘Singham’ was one-and-a-half stars all over, and it was one of the biggest hits of my career. It gave me so much respect. People think if it’s not critically acclaimed, you won’t get respect. But that’s not true. Even if you get one star, your film will do well if the audience wants to see it.
My #1 job as a thriller author is to give readers the best white-knuckle thrill ride I am capable of. I am first and foremost in the entertainment business. If that suspenseful ride is also terrifying because it hits really close to home, then I am once again doing what I am supposed to do as a thriller author.
I fight to drive my percentages through the roof for winning and lower my percentage by taking the least amount of damage and least amount of hits.
I’ve always looked at famous actors and hope that once they get a part that they have success in, they would reprise it every few years in the way a pop singer will reprise their hits. Like Bob Dylan singing ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ until he’s fed up with it, finding different ways of doing it.
There are hits and misses, and as an actress, we are mentally ready for all that.
I sometimes wonder if I might be a bit of a disappointment to people, because they are expecting all these ’80s hits and what they get is a dark industrial wall of noise.
Football is an extraordinarily popular sport, and the whole game is played around this issue. The whole makeup of the game involves these subconcussive hits. I don’t know how they’re going to solve that problem. I don’t think they know how they’re going to solve that problem.
I mean, people have created great shows, produced wonderful television, and nobody tunes in. For whatever reason, it just doesn’t resonate with the masses. And vice versa, people have produced some really crappy television and mediocre stuff, and for some reason it hits. And there’s no rhyme or reason.
If you’re going to win games, you’re going to have to come up with the big hits. That’s the bottom line.
You watch some of the stuff Cesaro does in the ring; with his size, the way he moves around the ring, the moves he hits, the way he picks up guys twice his size. It’s just a different level.
I’ve seen teams and I’ve been on teams where, when adversity hits you, you kind of crumble.
Imagine two years worth of stuff that you’ve been holding on to and everything just keeps piling up to the point where the pot just overflows. You know what happens when a pot overflows? It hits the side of the pan and it hits the fire and the fire just explodes.
When I go to a gig and I hear a song that I really like, a song that hits home to me or hits an emotional nerve, if I could ever recreate that for someone, that would be the ultimate goal.
We sent a guy called Terry Slater a couple of demos, using the last of our money. And then things turned. He landed us a deal with Warners and said just keep coming up with songs, because when success hits you, you won’t even know your name.
When I saw ‘Shola Aur Shabnam’ and ‘Aankhen,’ I did not anticipate that they would become such hits. They looked like B-plus projects.
When we first began, we didn’t have any hits.
I’m fully aware that things that resonate and become real hits are the exception to the rule, so much so that I’ve wired myself for failure.
The worst thing you can do is censor yourself as the pencil hits the paper. You must not edit until you get it all on paper. If you can put everything down, stream-of-consciousness, you’ll do yourself a service.
No one in Hollywood really knows what a good idea is before a movie hits the screens. We only know if it’s a good idea after it’s done.
When you’ve played this game for ten years and gone to bat seven-thousand times and gotten two-thousand hits do you know what that really means? It means you’ve gone zero for five-thousand.
We had several hits in the States but probably only one big one in Europe. The crowds are smaller.
Every time a twenty-something CEO turns down a multibillion-dollar offer for a company that has little or no revenues, it hits a raw nerve in me. Unlike most professionals, I am not shocked by the seemingly bizarre behavior of those founders who pursue their vision beyond all rational thought or monetary reward.
I used to be a light-heavyweight, and I’m much faster than cruiserweight. That’s the reason I didn’t struggle with David Haye’s speed, and David Haye is much quicker than Oleksandr Usyk with one punch and much, much, more destructive with the way he hits.
The songs my band and I like to sing – the songs that the room will erupt for – are ’90s hits, like ‘All Star.’
When something really hits me, it makes me want to either jump off something really high or lie down and be buried. I want people to get hit and caught by my music.
Writing for the theatre is so different to writing for anything else. Because what you write is eventually going to be spoken. That’s why I think so many really powerful novelists can’t write a play – because they don’t understand that it’s spoken – that it hits the air. They don’t get that.
You learn more from the flops than from the hits.
Backstreet Boys fans don’t want to hear the New Kids singing all of their hits. Just like our fans don’t want to hear the Backstreet Boys singing all of our hits.
The thing that’s tricky is sometimes the best voices – just because someone hits the big notes and sounds amazing – it doesn’t necessarily mean they make the greatest artists.
I do me, and me is my hits. I’m out there really to satisfy the people.
I don’t want The Cure to fizzle out doing 45-minute shows of greatest hits. That would be awful for our legacy.
Before I started Code for America, I spent my career around startups. First it was game developers, small teams trying to make hits in a tough business. Then, when I started working on the Web 2.0 events, it was web startups during times of enormous opportunity and investment.
I listened to oldies radio stations as a kid; lots of Kinks and Beatles and ’50s hits.
A lot of people misunderstand what is Strong Style. Hard hits? Stiff? I don’t think so. Strong Style is a kind of philosophy.
I have always wanted to work with Steven R. Monroe, and when I read his script, I was blown away! I think ‘Complacent’ hits a nerve that people try so desperately to avoid, which is what I love about Steven’s work.
Smoking is the now the principal avoidable cause of premature death in Britain. It hits the worst off people hardest of all. Smoking is one of the principal causes of the health gap which leads to poorer people being ill more often and dying sooner.
It’s all about the crowd and what type of event I am DJing. If it’s a corporate party, I keep things upbeat but light. For late night events, I really turn it up with dance songs and trap hits.
Footage of young people getting shot. That bothers me. It hits a nerve.
I always hate when, like, my favorite performer has a boring moment. Especially when they got mad hits.
It always starts with a script. I like to have plenty of time to read something, and I always like to read a paper copy. I hate reading it on email. I sit down with a script, and want to see how it hits me. It’s an instinctive process.
I crave ideas, and when an idea hits me, it grips me and it tortures me until I master it.
By the time my first album was out, I had been out in Jamaica three or four years, but I had hits out at that time that were bona fide hits.

Hits and flops are part and parcel of movie business.
The fact of the matter is that the true hits of AOL have always been its easy-to-use services, such as AIM, email, and Buddy Lists.
A close friend of mine’s daughter was diagnosed with Epilepsy and battled seizures her first 2 years so this cause hits close to home. She ended up having brain surgery and has been seizure-free since. It really is an incredible story. Anything I can do to help promote Epilepsy awareness, I am with it.
We always make music and continue to make hits.
I was up for parts in ‘Charlie’s Angels’ and ‘Three’s Company,’ but other people got them. At the time I was very disappointed because I knew the shows would be tremendous hits. But if I had done either I would not have done the following: ‘Chorus Line,’ ‘Dancin’,’ ‘Chicago,’ ‘Movie Movie,’ ‘All That Jazz’ and ‘Annie.’
One healthy thing I’d like for players to know, whether they’re active or former, is you likely can’t replicate the thrill of playing before 100,000 people and big hits and making that much money. We can get ourselves into trouble trying to.
My ‘No Parlez’ album in 1983 – which went quadruple platinum – changed my life. The funniest thing though is the pictures we shot for the cover were rubbish, so we had to use a set we’d done for Smash Hits magazine instead.
I don’t eat steak often, maybe once a month. But when I do, it really hits the spot. When you’re done with your steak and your mashed potatoes and your green beans, you really know you’ve had dinner.
I always had a fair share of hits and flops.
Coronavirus can happen to anyone, so, it’s really important to maintain good health overall. That way, when it hits you, you have an immune system that is strong enough to fight the virus.
There will not be an automatic increase in interest rate when unemployment hits 6.5%.
I’m just so lucky – my office is a racetrack. That is something I’m very thankful for. It’s exciting, and it’s challenging, and there are a lot of emotions and nerves that come with it, but right there before the gates open, before that minute and a half or two minutes of the race, it just hits you.
I’m not trying to hide from my past. I want to roll in it. Like a dog, rolling in feces, I’m rolling in the feces of my greatest hits – that’s a bit of a wild way of looking at it, but I am a man, and we do like rolling in our own feces at times.
Businesses that have gone through an episode of hyperinflation become understandably alert to the threat of it: at the first hint of inflation, they’re likely to increase prices, since they’ve learned that if they don’t, and inflation hits, their businesses will be wrecked.
I vividly remember my mom would put on this VHS of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits music videos. I’d watch that all the time.
I remember my brother was always a jerk to me. One time, he bought Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Smash Hits,’ and he gave it to me because he didn’t like it, thinking it was a punishment.
If a guy hits seven contested threes, tip your hat off to him. Good game. But in most of the cases, that won’t happen.
Of course, there are days when you remember that what if I had continued irrespective of hits or flops, maybe I would have been in different place. I agree and accept that, but there is no need to regret because the 8-9 years I was away from cinema has also given me depth and changed me as a person.
When you’ve got an extra gear in your head where that’s all you do, you’ve constantly got a little radar up. … And when something hits that strikes that beeper, hits that radar, it’s like my song skills kick right in and go, ‘Oh, OK, there’s a song in that.’ And then I start trying to figure it out.
Playing onstage, I’m always aware of where the bathrooms are. When Crohn’s hits, I have to run, or it won’t be pretty.

I think there’s sexiness in infield hits because they require technique.
I’ve more than 50 hits in Bengali cinema and it’s a great feeling to have them released separately in the form of albums that are independent of the movies.
Hits and flops will come and go. But what stays with you is the experience you had while shooting a film. I am happy learning something new each time.
Maybe because I bat aggressively and go for big hits at times, people tend to remember my batting. But I have always done well as a stumper, too.
If you look at the big rock hits I’ve had – ‘High on Emotion,’ for example – the songs I write have to have a real meaning. There has to be depth.
I didn’t set out to write pop hits.
Unless you use the vocoder the way Daft Punk use it, it is very limited. When they sing it’s almost human. It sounds sexy. I just used it as an effect. It wasn’t because I was not able to sing; I’m not a great singer, but I had some hits as a singer, too. It’s a nice effect.
Grief is so human, and it hits everyone at one point or another, at least, in their lives. If you love, you will grieve, and that’s just given.

The Heartbreakers got kind of stuck with these hits and we had to play them like the records, which is a great balance too and we were really good at that.
It begins with the kind of story the writers want to tell. We never sit around in those retreats and say, ‘We really need to make a change. Let’s change this character.’ Or throw a dart at the wall and see what hits. It all begins with story.
I’m really good at writing ‘almost hits’.
When I stopped hiding who I am, I started writing hits.
I can’t just only be on reality TV and show everything when it’s the fairy princess, fairytale, and then not take my hits when I have to.

Watching the dailies and then watching the… episodes, it really hits you: ‘Damn, I did that?’ I must have been crazy to get into those situations.
I was fortunate enough to interact with him when I played for RCB in IPL. I learnt from AB as to how he prepares for a game. I get amazed by the kind of strokes he hits and the time he has got to play those shots.
I grew up listening to hits, and if I write something I feel, I think that’s pretty mass appeal. I’m not very elitist with music. Love is universal; a great melody is universal; it goes around the world; it’s not just American. A great song can touch the world.
I lost a boyfriend over Elmore James. You know that moment when you send mixtapes at fifteen? He sent me pop hits, and I sent him Elmore James, and I never heard from him again.
A guy like Tyron Woodley, he hits like a truck. I know personally.
There’s nothing scarier than silence. A lot of horror movies lean on hits and score to try and create tension, which actually does the opposite. The best scares come from a desire to see the character overcome what they’re dealing with in the scene. If you care about the character you’ll care about the scare.
The Besiktas fans are very passionate. When you go out onto the pitch the noise coming from the stands always hits you.
The way that light hits objects, I think, is one of the more important things that sculpture and photography share.
I’ve always wanted to have one of those hits on the radio, but we haven’t really been able to crack that code.
When I first set up my big band, I only had Gilson Lavis, the drummer from Squeeze, with me. He was the core element. Whenever a group hits the big time, they always get a new drummer because they really need that. You can make do with rubbish elsewhere.
When you – when someone dies in your family and you think you’re over it, and then you wake up in the morning and it hits you, ‘I won’t ever see my brother again. I won’t ever see my mom again.’ And it just kind of hits you like that.
We started about three years before YouTube existed, so we had to host all the videos on our own servers at a co-location facility. When we got so many hits on our first few videos, and we estimated our bandwidth bill was going to be about $12,000 a month, we knew that we had to establish a business model ASAP.
For a long time, it seemed as if podcasting was a male realm, but no longer. Sure, there are lots of men doing podcasts, but women are voicing a lot of the form’s biggest hits. ‘Serial,’ the podcast that made podcasts a phenomenon, was narrated by a woman.
Aang hits the Avatar-state and he has this unlimited power. He enters into a flow state, you know, he’s in the zone. That’s how it feels for me sometimes when I’m fighting.
My siblings’ first songs in Bollywood – ‘Baabuji Zara Dheere’ and ‘Saawan Aaya Hai’ were huge hits. There is no rivalry between us, and we love and support each other.
I believe there is lot of untapped potential in the television market. With shows such as ‘Bigg Boss’ and ’24’ turning out to big hits on TV, I’m interested to be in it.
When good news about the market hits the front page of the New York Times, sell.
Miocic hits really hard.
I love big hits.
In the ring, if someone hits you too hard, you can only take so many of those, and you have to send back a receipt, meaning ‘Hey, settle down.’ If a guy has a bad night at the office and catches you in the chin, you pop him so he knows what’s going on.
With any luck, by the time NASA’s space probe hits Pluto, you’ll be booking a spaceflight with a privately run suborbital airline.
You just go out there and do the best you can. If it hits, it hits. And if it doesn’t, you go on to the next thing.
I have to believe that most people know that ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You’ is my song. But the reaction we get from the audience at ‘Jersey Boys’ is that they didn’t remember how many hits we had. A lot of ‘Oh yeah, I forgot they did that song.’ We had 20 Top 10 hits in the U.S… people forget.
Actually, if I could deliberately sit down and write a pop hit, all my songs would be pop hits! Let’s put it this way. I play what I like to hear. And sometimes I like to hear something poppy, and sometimes I don’t.
We have been the cowards lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That’s cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, it’s not cowardly.
When I had hits at country radio, that’s what got my career off the ground and made my career.
Twenty years ago I went to see this show The Best Disco in Town Live, it was all these disco acts like Gloria Gaynor and Tavares and I had the best night of my life. There was no new music, it was just hits you loved growing up.
Some of the greatest shows in history – ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ and ‘House’ – had puny starts but the benefit of schedule protection, increasingly scarce in today’s DVR world. Cable nets can tolerate small ratings, building hits in progress like ‘Breaking Bad,’ or marathon their way to a ‘Duck Dynasty.’
I think that I identify with Philadelphia for a lot of reasons. Without even thinking about it, I called myself ‘Philly’s Constant Hitmaker’ when I first got a MySpace, before I had any real hits. It was kind of just a funny slogan, basically lifted from the Rolling Stones’ first album, ‘England’s Newest Hit Makers.’
‘Wicked’ has been one of the biggest hits in Los Angeles theatre history, and we are thrilled that theatergoers here have embraced the musical and welcomed us so heartily.
I sometimes like to do plyometric work which hits my core and the rest of my body at the same time: things like jumping to catch balls, box jumps, hurdling over cricket stumps, bounds, hops, or combined exercises like three jumps in a row followed by a sprint.
I’ve watched songwriters, writers, producers, even artists that I’ve written hits for come and go. But to the world, it looked like Justin Bieber was my first success.
I’ve had some really big hits with ‘Groundhog Day’ and ‘Michael,’ ‘Multiplicity,’ ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral.’
Tackling still comes down to leverage and owning that leverage and making your hits.
I recently was in the same room as Leonardo DiCaprio, and one of my favorite movies is ‘Basketball Diaries.’ That movie hits home for me in so many ways, and in that moment, I was like, ‘I have to thank this dude.’ So I did.
I still get really nervous, though, before each performance. It kind of hits about 15 minutes before we go onstage – sometimes I don’t even want to go on. But once I’m onstage I’m fine.
If you hate somebody, it’s like a boomerang that misses its target and comes back and hits you in the head. The one who hates is the one who hurts.
When a gust of wind hits a broken bone, you feel it.
There’s a handful of situations already in two games – some hits I don’t need to take – and I’m taking them because I’m stringing out the play.
I just go out and do what I can to help the team win, try and be consistent in having some good at-bats and getting some timely hits and whatnot.
Hits and flops are overrated.
My task with ‘Uh-Huh’ was to make a more even record and get away from juvenile topics like ‘Hurts So Good.’ But I also knew if I wanted to continue, I had to have more hits.
I don’t really have much to prove. I can easily go in a comfort zone, make two films a year, hype them because I’ve signed them as a star, make them cheap and they will be big hits.
But to put out a greatest hits on one CD was totally impossible, I just couldn’t do it. The best compromise was to put out two CDs – Early Days – which is what it is – and Latter Days.
I’ve made money, and I’ve been ripped off. I’ve had creative freedom, and I’ve been pressured to make hits. I have dealt with diva behavior from crazy musicians, and I have seen genius records by wonderful artists get completely ignored. I love music. I always will.
Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.
If people knew what made hits they’d make more of them, so to have the illusion of control over one’s career isn’t something I can even pretend to have.
Of course, the moment when the ball hits the net, that’s fascinating for kids playing the game and motivates them to join a club.
Somebody hits me, I’m going to hit him back. Even if it does look like he hasn’t eaten in a while.
Some people have said that I can ‘hear’ a hit song, meaning that I can tell the first time a song is played for me if it has potential. I have been able to hear some of the hits that way, but I can also ‘feel’ one.
I think the season I had playing as a kid against men in Reunion toughened me up a lot and taught me how to cope with hits.
You can’t go up there trying to get hits. You can just go up there trying to put together at-bats and square the baseball up.
That person who’s going to a concert for a nostalgic reason, we’re not really going to placate. We still play three or four hits every night. Now, we don’t play them like the record. We try to find new ways to do it.
We weren’t One Hit Wonders. We had a few hits.
The only time I’ve ever been knocked out in my entire life was in a rugby game when I was about 13. I used to play on the wing. The opposing winger has the ball in his hand and he’s running full speed at me. I go down to tackle him and he jumps up and his knee hits my temple.
When you watch the sitcoms that were the big hits when I was growing up, TV was still just TV. It was allowed to just be TV. There were three channels that were competing for the whole family and you couldn’t take your business elsewhere.
If I stay healthy, I have a chance to collect 3,000 hits and 1,000 errors.
It’s different in the NFL because you’re getting paid to get hit. In college, you’re taking hits for someone else to make money.
One thing that’s good is I don’t lose it if some old mate goes ‘bang!’ and hits me in the face.
I usually hold a puppet and play with different voices until something happens and the right voice just hits me. Then, I’ll pick a name that just seems to fit the character that naturally comes out.
Offsetting the sample position every time the sample hits will create more random movement in short samples.
‘White Rabbit’ was mostly done in about two days, the music in about half an hour. The music is a ‘Bolero’ rip-off and the lyrics a rearrangement of ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ You take two spectacular hits and throw them together, and it’s hard to miss.
A lot of the hardcore fans wanna hear the deep cuts – songs like ‘Orion’ or maybe like a ‘Disposable Heroes’ – you know, songs that we don’t play all the time – and then, of course, they wanna hear ‘Sandman’ and ‘Nothing Else Matters’ and some of the hits.
I’ma continue to make records, continue to make hits, continue to be what I am, legendary.
Ninety percent of what I’m listening to overall is like the same tape of Bob Marley’s Greatest Hits. Like, how did I become one of those people on late night TV where they sell anthologies to you and you buy them?
The films I’ve done with all my heart have gone on to become huge hits. When I set out to do a ‘mass masala’ intending to please B and C centres, it bombs.
Music hits everyone differently every single day.
Having glue stuck to your face in winter is not fun. It freezes as it hits the skin.
With excessive digitisation, now, everyone is making films, which is good, but the makers think that they will quickly make films in digital and bag satellite rights but television channels buy satellite rights of notable films only. If we made fewer films a year, percentage of hits would be better.
No matter how well or how bad you play, when you have a chance of winning and you come up a little bit too short, it obviously hits you a little bit. It stinks.
Film is much more of a brand business, whereas on Broadway, you can do complete unknowns and have hits.
I was determined to create my own identity. My first hits, in fact, were straight-up rhythm and blues. My voice was compared to Aretha Franklin’s – though, for my money, no one compares to Aretha.
I was kind of a slap hitter, trying to get base hits, hit line drives, stay below a certain trajectory with my ball.
The audience wants to hear ‘Rock n’ Me,’ ‘Space Cowboy,’ ‘Living in the U.S.A.’ When you start to play something else, you can feel the interest and enthusiasm go; the steam goes out of room. They are really ‘Greatest Hits’ fans and that’s what they want to hear. It’s disappointing that it’s this way in the U.S.
If you can imagine you have thought about something your whole life, and you have invested everything you have got into achieving that moment, and then the ball hits the back of the net for England and you are wearing the number nine shirt.
I think I feel fortunate to have been very well educated in terms of strength and training while I was at school at Stanford, and I think our strength coaches here on the Colts do a great job. A big part of being able to withstand hits is making sure that you’ve got a good base.
For sure, you don’t believe the good stuff. I mean, the good stuff is just insane – wacky. If you don’t take it too much to heart, it does help when the negative stuff hits. And you know the negative stuff is coming. It’s got to! What comes up must come down.
I’ve been part of the biggest hits and flops.
I don’t want to lead the league in infield hits because, at some point in my career, I can’t get away with it anymore.
I watched the guy that hits a home run, and he comes across the plate and he points skyward, like thanking for the help from the Almighty to hit the home run. And as he does that, I say to myself, ‘God screwed the pitcher.’ And I don’t know how else you look at it.
If a defender hits you and you stay down he might think he’s got the better of you, so to get up and keep going is important.
I think a game hits a high point when it provokes reactions the designer doesn’t expect.
I know I’m not the kind of person who’s gonna wind up a walking jukebox, like many rock ‘n’ roll artists. They just play their hits and that’s it. That doesn’t appeal to me.
Anthony Johnson hits harder than any other person, no doubt. Every time he hit me, it made me kind of, like, fly all over the place. He was trying to take my head off.
I felt that, in retrospect, there was a time in the late Seventies, after I had a string of hits and successes, as a performer and a recording artist, that I wasn’t saying anything.
Whenever I score for Manchester City, my mother calls me. As soon as the ball hits the back of the net, the phone rings. It doesn’t matter if she’s back home in Brazil or if she’s in the stadium watching me. She calls me every time. So I run to the corner flag, and I put my hand to my ear, and I say, ‘Alo Mae!’
A lot of my die-hard fans think I have a lot of hits, but I don’t.
It’s kind of debatable whether or not the advertisement model is effective. Like whether Nielsen works. For years, Nielsen has been based on sampling. It’s not like an electronic bullet that hits your house that tells the people at networks at all times what you’re watching.
When you’re playing Wembley Arena the emotion comes in waves, but in a tiny club it hits you in the face.
I serve up the hits, and I enjoy doing it.
In my experience, sometimes a movie just hits at the wrong time, gets the wrong press, or gets the wrong representation, and it gets misunderstood.
To be honest, the first thing that hits you when you step off the plane in L.A. is just how eager people are to help you out here – or, at least, that’s what I’ve found.
Not every story in history has a beginning, a middle and an end, but the wreck of the Titanic does. It begins when they leave, in the middle it hits an iceberg, and in the final two hours, the ship sinks.
She hits me and she beats me and she drinks. My mom is an alcoholic.
I remember it was Dr. Seuss’ birthday, and I got to read to the little ones and that was just an awesome experience. I remember when I was a young knucklehead and having that access to an after-school program in my community. It’s something that hits home to me and something I wanted to always be a part of.
I feel like the ‘Greatest Hits’ is a homegrown remedy for love.
When you’re doing things like Glastonbury main stage, and there’s 80,000 people and your hits are going off, it’s at those moments you sit back and breathe and take it in, man, cos it might never happen again.
I play guys who are willing to go really far. If the dung really hits the fan, I don’t know if I could walk the talk. But anyone who isn’t willing to die for his convictions isn’t worth living. My characters, no matter how demented they are, they have their convictions.
Four out of the five discs in my lumbar spine are ruptured, herniated fully. Think of a jelly doughnut being squashed, and it hits nerves, causing bilateral sciatica. And I have irreparable sacral damage. And I have peripheral neuropathy.
Chris Brown is a star. He’s a genius. Anybody should want to work with him. He makes hits.
The reality is that it’s just the nature of the game. It’s the nature of playing offensive line, defensive line, and linebackers, where your responsibilities as a player involve those little hits that are going to accumulate. You can’t take that out of the game.
I don’t think you have to go hit home runs to win races. I think we can get solid base hits with singles and doubles to put ourselves in a position to win.
I have many hits, big hits, that have been written by people I don’t know. In almost all my shows, people say, ‘Chente, here’s a CD.’ When I get home, I listen to them all, and what I like, I record.
I think, a lot of guys, when they get, you know, those hits or those concussions, they think, ‘OK, well, I’m just going to kind of play through it here for the short term, and it’s going to get better.’ I would venture to say probably 100 percent of the guys that played my sport in the NFL have been there.
After a certain point of time, life’s practicality hits you. So I got into theatre, did stage plays and worked along with Naseeruddin Shah and Nana Patekar, people who are committed to the craft part.
The success of ‘Dhruva’ has given me more satisfaction than any of my previous hits, simply because the audience accepted the film even though it was experimental. I really hope this kind of acceptance makes experimental cinema the new mainstream cinema.
I no longer feel the pressure of trying to write hits for the radio anymore.
I hope I am offered good roles and all my releases are hits.
Sweat doesn’t fall off you. The water just accumulates until it gets too big and agitated and falls off like a sphere of water. It then floats around until it hits something. It takes a lot of water to fall off. Usually it just hangs on, so you get a quick build-up of sweat when working out.
If a guy hits .300 every year, what does he have to look forward to? I always tried to stay around .190, with three or four RBI. And I tried to get them all in September. That way I always had something to talk about during the winter.
My work more than didn’t fit in. It crossed willy-nilly the boundaries that people had spent their lives building up. It hits some 30 subfields of biology, even geology.
First, everyone hits on Sidharth Shukla. I’ve seen it. He is the complete package. But this is also a problem. The girls don’t leave him alone.
Dan Henderson, even when you’re close and he hits you from very, very close, you can feel how heavy his hands are. His hands are pretty powerful.
When love hits you, it hits you and you don’t expect it.
A plate of food hits the table, lands right in front of you. One of two things happens. Either you sit up and look at it and react to it, or nothing happens. If nothing happens then that restaurant is stuck in mediocrity forever.
He hits it long. His shoulders are impressively quick through the ball. That’s where he’s getting his power from. He’s young and has great elasticity.
We’ve never tried to write radio hits. If I hear our song on the radio, it’s cool, and I’m proud, but it’s never a goal.
I draw whatever hits me.
You can hear some artists, hear five of their albums and still have no idea who they are. But if you’ve heard most of what I’ve recorded, you know me. You go from ‘Honesty’ to ‘Going Through Hell’ – you can listen to the hits, and they pretty much reflect who I am. ‘Take a Back Road’ is the same thing.
So there was a way for you to get promoted and survive as an artist without worrying about AM radio hits.
Do I want someone to get more hits than me? No. Do I want someone to hit more home runs than me? No. Do I want someone to have more RBI than me? No. I get a kick out of seeing the all-time leaders and my name’s on top of every one, with the exception of strikeouts. I get a kick out of that.
Once an ebook hits the Kindle Top 100, sales tend to snowball as new customers discover it in greater numbers.
There are the medical dangers of football in general caused by head trauma over repetitive hits.
When I started my career, I gave four flops, and then four hits, two flops, two hits, and then three flops.
For years, I wrote songs to try to get cuts or try to have hits or try to appease a label or to be famous. I was learning a lot of valuable tools about structure and how to articulate. I was getting really good at that.
A man in a bookstore buys a book on loneliness and every woman in the store hits on him. A woman buys a book on loneliness and the store clears out.
The truth about love is that you don’t always fall in love with whom you are supposed to fall in love with. Love just hits you. It is a transcendent thing. Sometimes it is your best friend’s husband and sometimes it’s your father. It’s weird. But that’s a fact of life.
I’m not like Stephanie Mills or Whitney Houston with actual hits. My fans think everything I did was a hit.
No band has two hours’ worth of greatest hits, but Queen comes close.
As every scuba diver knows, panic is your worst enemy: when it hits, your mind starts to thrash and you are likely to do something really stupid and self-destructive.
We live in a country where John Lennon takes eight bullets, Yoko Ono is walking right beside him and not one hits her. Explain that to me!
I have a pet peeve about bands that don’t play their hits. I think it’s kind of selfish.
You ever get that feeling that you just have too many hits?
I really thought that Billy Joel had two hits. I thought it was ‘Uptown Girl’ and ‘Piano Man,’ and that was basically it.
You could have the bases loaded, and you bring up the best pinch-hitter in the world to pinch hit, he hits into a double play, and then all of a sudden: ‘How could you do that?’
I often felt like that Mr. Magoo figure in the cartoon, who just wanders through traffic, and somehow it never hits him. I kind of feel that way about my whole childhood: Why do I have a normal life?
I think there is something to be said for churning things out. Motown churned out hits and there is nothing wrong with that.
There was a chance for me to write one song for the section where Elvis sat in his black leather outfit and sang the old hits. At eight oclock the next morning I had written Memories.
I want to be the player who hits home runs, drives in runs.
It’s a perfect wave when small and the most beautiful and scary wave on Earth when it’s big, as the swell from deep water hits the shallow reef ledge. A ten-foot high wave and a 30-footer break in the same depth of water.
I want to be alone and work until the day my heads hits the drawing table and I’m dead. Kaput. I feel very much like I want to be with my brother and sister again. They’re nowhere. I know they’re nowhere and they don’t exist, but if nowhere means that’s where they are, that’s where I want to be.
When you’re threatened, or something hard hits you, acknowledge it, embrace it. Don’t pretend that you didn’t get hurt – hurt, cry, think about it. And then you let it go and try something else.
I always defined myself in terms of my talkativeness, and being without a voice hits me in a number of ways.
It’s tough to say what separates me from everyone else. I guess it’s one of the things that the audience feels as soon as the spotlight hits me. All I can say is that I’m being as true to myself the best way I can.
