Top Ten Best Song Writers of the 21st Century
The Top TenXW
His songs are still the best I've ever heard and he is one amazing guy.V3 Comments
She is one of the best young writers there is in her interpretation of the feelings going on inside her and people can relate to those lyrics
I like taylor swift for my opinion because she have a mine to write her own song. ,!
She is definitely one of the best she actually writes her own songsV2 Comments
She is truly incomparable, I've seen many try to match her voice but it is impossible. Best singles: They are all amazing, my personal favourites are Someone like you and Chasing Pavements.V1 Comment
He is (in my personal opinion) the best singer song writer of out generation. When he performs live is like he's in the studio. There is no magic involved just Ed, his paw print guitar, loop pedal and heavenly voice. Fame hasn't changed him in the slightest. He still sofa surfs. Be that from his family or friends houses or his own. Every lyric has meaning and isn't about sex drugs and RockNRoll or bigging himself up. Even his album cover for X is simply that. An X. He doesn't need to brag about his fame and fortune and celebrity status. He is a role model to every teenager, young adult and adult out there. I'm sorry if I'm blabbing. He even went to Afghanistan to do a private gig for the lads on tour (my brother was amongst the crowd) he is what we need in a generation of drugs, violence and hate. Just to prove you can still be mellow and be loved. So much respect for this man.
The a team and Lego house are such great songs. Not to mention that he wrote some songs for one direction.
He makes great music. I love his songs like Photograph and Thinking out loud. I think he is the best songwriter overall.
I stand by my first comment, pure class.
Why is Katy Perry on this list? She can't either sing or write, and when she does shallow and meaningless lyrics come alive (like California Girls)
The guy's a lyrical genius. Every song has its own meaning, and they're all good enough to be singles. Thank God there's still a songwriting talent in today's generation of music. No. 1 in my opinion.
This whole list is a joke, Miley Cyrus probably doesn't even write her own music, you should be putting down guys like Gerard Way, Billie Joe Armstrong, Matt Schultz, Jack White, etc. Guys like this actually make points and cover important and deep subjects with their music, not just dumb crap about having fun, the only people I would leave on this list are Eminem and Ed sheeran. And for me they would be pretty far up the list
What the hell? Miley Cyrus, Robbie Williams? come on, let's put a real musician on this list! Alex Turner and Ed Sheeran should definitely be higher than Miley Cyrus or Robbie Williams...
She gained and lost popularity in Hannah Montana but overall it was a boost for her position. Best singles: Climb, I'll always remember you, Can't be tamed and perhaps her best is party in the U.S. A, which sadly doesn't count as Jessie J wrote it.
She has that 'wild' look and sound to her. Best singles: Domino, Party In The U.S. A (which she sold to Miley) and Price Tag. She has others that I love and like.
I agree but I also love Wild, bang bang, who you are and nobody's perfect and every other one
Gosh I love Katy Perry, but her thing with Rob pushed her down a bit. Best singles: Californian Girls, Last Friday Night, Firework, and plenty more - how could I forget Part Of Me and Wide Awake?
I love his songs, they're just so up-beat and fun, most of them. Best singles: Grenade :) and others but this is my favourite!
Ah, Lily. Her songs can generally be mean, but that doesn't stop them from being good. Or her swooping a place on this list. Best singles: Well, I personally ♥ love Smile. But there is others.
Her dark themes, beautiful imagery and endless references to music culture make her one of the best.
I love pink! Just Give Me A Reason is the best! Her music is inspiring and has meaning!
I love Pink! Best singles: Just Give Me A Reason, Blow Me (One Last Kiss), So What, and many others I absolutely lurrvve.
Yay! Krissy :). Best singles: Heartless, No Boundaries and Live Like We're Dying, plus more that I lurve!
Who makes these stupid lists?! PSY and Robbie Williams are the only good people on this list, and they're far from best, for crying out loud! - PositronWildhawk
