Famous Pop Songs Translated Into Puzzling Pictograms

Swedish graphic designer and artist Viktor Hertz has visualized the lyrics and titles of songs in a series minimalist posters titled Pictogram Rock Posters.

Hertz translated 234 songs from some of the greatest musicians including ‘The Beatles’, ‘The Rolling Stones’ and ‘Bob Dylan’, into pictograms, capturing the essence of the song in a simple picture.

Said Hertz, “I spent many, many hours just thinking about the titles and looking at lots of pictograms, trying to distill all the visual impressions into clever combinations that could represent the songs”.

Hertz is planning on expanding the series, but for now can you figure out all the songs?
