Or similar. I figured out lyrics as passwords in college. If you want to use my NeXT account from 1994, the password is SoICanDieEasy, as I was listening to a lot of Zeppelin at the time.

Yeah, make your nine character passwords, I will stick with seven characters. Everyone will fail trying to guess my password when they try nine characters.

My hotmail account was so old (before I stopped using it) that it had a four character password.
