"It's just pet names and parallels"

I believe that's how someone once described Desolation Row to me.

Man Out of Time as Elvis Costello's #1, and for Gabriel: Dancing with the Moonlit Knight and perhaps The Cinema Show could get spots...

Nas's N.Y. State Of Mind could possibly make the list.

I think hip/hop artists must have been excluded on here first time round, because there is none on either list.

There's definite room for quite a bit of hip hop if we include it.

Quinn, that's undoubtedly the most acclaimed track off Illmatic, but my favourite lyrical performance from Nas on that album is One Love.

None of those are better than Nas' perfomances on Illmatic, and I love Em. He does deserve a song on here though. I'd go with Stan or Till I Collapse.

I think Neil Young's four best lyrical performances are likely; Thrasher, Ambulance Blues, On the Beach and Powderfinger. There are probably others that are just as good, maybe better, but those are four brilliant lyrical performances that immediately come to mind. I think Thrasher is his best, personally.

I completely agree about "Thrasher," that's one of my all-time favourites too. I'm surprised it isn't on this list.

I disagree, but there you go. Sing For The Moment is potentially one of the most important hip-hop lyrics ever. The fact that it was a single, and is treated as such shouldn't have much bearing on the reality of the words.

Either that, or Like Toy Soldiers. Seriously...

"But now he's fucked the game up cuz one of the ways I came up
Was through that publication the same one that made me famous
Now the owner of it has got a grudge against me for nothin'
Well fuck it, that motherfucker can get it too, fuck him then
But I'm so busy being pissed off I don't stop to think
That we just inherited 50's beef with Murder Inc.
And he's inherited mine which is fine ain't like either of us mind
We still have soldiers that's on the front line
That's willing to die for us as soon as we give the orders
Never to extort us, strictly to show they support us
We'll maybe shout 'em out in a rap or up in a chorus
To show them we love 'em back and let 'em know how important it is
To have Runion Avenue Soldiers up in our corners
Their loyalty to us is worth more than any award is
But I ain't tryna have none of my people hurt and murdered
It ain't worth it I can't think of a perfecter way to word it
Then to just say that I love ya'll too much to see the virdict
I'll walk away from it all before I let it go any further
But don't get it twisted, it's not a plea that I'm coppin'
I'm just willin' to be the bigger man
If ya'll can quit poppin' off at your jaws well then I can,
Cuz frankly I'm sick of talkin'
I'm not gonna let someone elses coffin rest on my conscience cuz.."

Why does Nick Drake only have one performance on here? And why is it at 170-something?

Probably the same reason why Tom Waits only has one performance in the top 100.
