We have these in the vocalist and guitar forums, so why not here?
Someone posts a song, and someone else rates the lyrics and then posts their own song.
I'll start it off...

Probably my favorite lyrical performance ever. So unbelievably profound, and he doesn't over-do it.

Gotta be my favorite performance... technically impressive and submersive, rarely well-phrased and mellifluous and yet tragic in its context and, as always when considering the artist, somehow layered and yet frank at once:

Damn, dude can rhyme. 9/10 (I save my 10/10's for "Desolation Row" sorta things, so 9/10 is extremely excellent)

Now, for something more mellow:

That was pretty great, and I'm not even a big Jackson Browne fan...I'll give that 8.5/10.

One performance at a time, bud.
Beside You was pretty great though, very moving stuff. Love the words, even if I dont care for Van's singing all that much. 8/10.
