Not a fan of her music, but who cares when you look like that.
Seriously I am pissed that he was not on this list
Eric Clapton next to Beyonce... That is why Trump was elected
Beautiful voice transcends with beautiful lyrics. Mariah truly is versatile and professional at what she does best. The ability to add necessary notes to support the mood and timbre of the concept of a piece. She is able to create heavenly emotions from the well-thought lyrics she creates then goes beyond these emotions by executing what she has wrote, the things she believes in through her angelic notes and use of melisma. Mariah is exceptionally good at changing the tone of her voice to suit what she has written. Truly amazing, and exceptional artist and songwriter. Her music style is very original. Her lyrics are the crystallized sugar which melts beautiful into a variety of tones colours through her exceptional singing abilities. Like what I said at the start, Beautiful voice transcends with beautiful lyrics.
She doesn't get enough credit, people don't recognize her talent as a singer or a song-writer. Pop singers can be good too, ya know. Rock isn't the "golden genre", its good, but people need to give credit where credit is due. Mariah Carey also has perfect pitch, so just saying...
How is she not in at least the top 30? She writes every song except covers and she started writing her music since age 12. (Yes you read that right TWELVE, not even in 8th grade yet). Oh, and she can actually sing.
How can this woman not feature on any best songwriter list? She wrote 17 of her 18 no1 songs? It's beyond me. One of THE most underrated singer/songwriters of this generationV6 Comments
This guy is one of Bob Dylan's favorites! He Went to Paris is reason enough for him to be top 100 at the very least, not to mention other standouts like Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude; Come Monday; A Pirate Looks at Forty the list goes on!
Sure, he's not everybody's cup of tea, but this guy has written some amazing songs!
He is DEFFINITELY one of the best songwriters of all time! He has written so many AMAZING songs such as: Daybreak, Could It Be Magic, Even Now, Copacabana, One Voice, I'm Comin' Back, Let Me Go, Brooklyn Blues, Who Needs To Dream, Sweet Heaven, Stay, (Why Don't We Try) A Slow Dance, (I Was A Fool) To Let You Go, etc.
There are no words to describe how incredible Manilow is!
