The greatest verses of any genre of any genre to ever grace the wonderfulness of music:
The Top Ten
1 "Imagine" - John Lennon, 1st Verse
2 "The Sound of Silence" - Simon and Garfunkel, Final Verse

That verse has been permanently etched on my memory since I first heard the song. What a brilliant work.

3 "Stairway to Heaven" - Led Zeppelin, 6th Verse

And as we wind on down the road!
Our shadow's taller than our souls!
There walks a lady we all know!
Who shines white light and wants to show!
How everything still turns to gold!
And if you listen very hard!
The truth will come to you at last!
When all is one and one is all,
To be a rock, and not to roll!
And she's buying a stairway,
To heaven...

4 "American Pie" - Don McLean, Final Verse

Reading the lyrics, compels me to listen to the song!

5 "Time" - Pink Floyd, 2nd Verse

I loved every verse of this song.

8 "Kashmir" - Led Zeppelin, 1st Verse
9 "Lose Yourself" - Eminem, Final Verse

Sorry, can't remember the lyrics off-hand but I do know they are inspirational. This doesn't mean I am an Eminem fan, OK?

10 "Come Sail Away" - Styx, Second Verse
The Contenders
11 "Yesterday" - The Beatles, 1st Verse

Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away.
Now it looks as though they're here to stay.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly I'm not half the man I used to be.
There's a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

12 "Time In a Bottle" - Jim Croce, Verse 1

14 "Ruby Tuesday" - The Rolling Stones, Final Verse

There's no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams
And you will lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?

23 "Piano Man" - Billy Joel
24 Castle of Glass - Linkin Park, 4th verse
25 "Changes" - David Bowie, 2nd Verse

I watch the ripples change their size but never leave the stream of warm impermanence. And so the days float through my eyes, but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on, as they try to change their worlds, are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.
