Bob Dylan's, "Gates of Eden"
The Lyrics:
The savage soldier sticks his head in sand and then complains unto the shoeless hunter who's gone deaf but still remains upon the beach where hound dogs bay at ships with tatooed sails heading for the Gates of Eden
This is one of Dylan's best examples of alliteration.

Though you might hear laughin', spinnin', swingin' madly 'cross the sun
The "s" sound.

Bob Dylan's, "Ramona"
The Lyrics:
Ramona come closer, shut softly your watery eyes. The pangs of you sadness will pass as your senses will rise. Your cracked country lips I still wish to kiss as to be by the strength of you skin
Almost every line and verse of this song is filled with alliteration. But the most amazing thing is that the alliteration does not in any way take away from the meaning and beauty of the lyrics
