    Words are flowing out like endless rain in to a paper cup, they slither while they pass they slip away across the universe
    Pools of sorrow waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind, possessing and caressing me.
    The Beatles- Across The Universe


    I can feel the earth begin to move, I hear my needle hit the groove.

    Maybe I will never be
    all the thing that I wanna be
    now is not time to cry
    nows the time to find out why
    I think you're the same as me
    We'll see things they'll never see
    You and I are gonna live forever

    Oasis - Live Forever 1994

    Neat idea - BD - Like A Rolling Stone


    Once upon a time you dressed so fine
    You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?
    People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall"
    You thought they were all kiddin' you
    You used to laugh about
    Everybody that was hangin' out
    Now you don't talk so loud
    Now you don't seem so proud
    About having to be scrounging for your next meal

    How does it feel?
    How does it feel
    To be without a home
    Like a complete unknown
    Like a rolling stone?
    .... Die spinnen, die Briten ....

    A classic.

    There's a line later in the song which sounds like; " When you're in love with a beautiful woman, you want your ride".

    When I found out that it was actually "You watch her eyes" I was most disappointed.

    That is iconic.

    As is "One, two, three o'clock, four o'clock rock."

    For lyric to be truly iconic, there should be no need to attribute it to a song or an artist.

    Everyone knows it immediately.

    However, well kent doesn't necessarily mean iconic, but that's a subject for another thread.

    Libraries gave us power.
    Then work came and made us free
    What price now for a shallow piece of dignity?


    A Design For Life - Manic Street Preachers

    A heart of stone, a smoking gun
    I can give you life, I can take it away.


    Banquet - Bloc Party

    Design for Life qualifies as iconic imo, Bloc Party maybr not so much but they are great lyrics.

    Agreed, to be iconic it should invoke an era, event or person that represent a time or changed the path of history.

    I'd say a song performed at Woodstock in 1969 or the first mainstream rock and roll song are contenders.

    Good one. There's a lot more from that stable too.

    I said a hip hop

    The hip, hip a hop, and you don't stop

    Arguably the song that started to bring rap into the mainstream and everyone knows those opening lyrics.
