Top Ten Best Singer/Songwritersredwings5
The Contenders: Page 6
Best song writer and to back that up best singer ever
wow dimebag is a lonely rainbow of darkness on this list
What he only won "writer of the year" like 5 times in a ROW- Belongs in
the top 10 at least - ifnotforgrace
Probably the most underrated singer/songwriter of all time (by those not in the biz)
The genius of Kristofferson escapes many. But that is ok.
His lyrics are right up there with Dylan's.
Laura Nero has the best voice of women, creative lyrics and wrote her own songs.
She was one amazing songwriter. Bob Dylan liked her chords apparently.
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 generationV 6 Comments
He's lyrics ARE amazing & he should be #1! - Niikura_Akonya
The man was in two of the best bands ever and wrote and performed the entire first Foo Fighters album. Half the people ahead of him on this list have their songs written for them or don't have a single instrument in their songs
Dave Grohl is not only the former drummer of one of the defining bands of the early 90s grunge movement, but his current band Foo Fighters has been on top of the world for over two decades now. How is he not even in the top 100?!?
A top 50 writer for certain! Great talent!
He's a genius! Sensitive yet human, mysterious yes so universal! Sublime!
THE BEST BRILLIANT, ME AS A ADDICT STAYING IN THE GHETOS OF CAPE TOWN FIND HIS LYRICS HEALING THERAPHEUTIC, ITS HELL HERE AND I FIND MY INNER SELF THRU HIS LYRICS AND DAVID GAHANS VOICE
Of course patti smith is at 65. I should be glad shes this high.anyway, in my opinion, shes the only person who comes close to dylan in terms of lryics - RecklessGreed
Why matt in 106.. he must be in the top 10! Just listen soaked by adam lambert and uprising by muse... he is guitarist of decade in Q MAGAZINE...
what? 83?! His beautiful voice combined with his creativity is pure art, he really deserves to be much higher.
What an amazing MUSEician (pun intended haha), Matt is easily the best guitarist to come out of the early 2000s. Not many can match his distinctive, beautiful voice either.
Underrated, as always. Really had a beautiful voice.
Not one better at blending words and music.
Amy Winehouse toward the bottom? What is wrong with people? She spoke to lots of women when no one else could. She deserves to be at least in the Top 20, and definitely before Taylor Swift! Whoever put Taylor on such a high rank needs to listen to real music.
Why is he on this list at all? I don't want to live in a world where M. Shadows is barely outside of the top 100 songwriters of all time.
