Back in the old days, when somebody wanted to write an epic poem, they often used alliterative verseinstead of rhyme. As in Beowulf.
The only example of anyone attempting this in “modern” popular music that I can think of is Steve Stills in “Helplessly Hoping”. Does anyone know of any others?
Please note that I am not asking for songs in which a few scattered examples of alliteration appear. I’m wondering if anyone knows of any other songs that use alliterative verse as the primary structural device.
