She is definitely number 1 with Ben Moody. Amy is fantastic singer and songwriter. - 05yusuf09
Listen and Read to My Immortal's lyrics, so meaningful and beautiful.
Not to be down on Johnny or anything because I am a huge fan but he wasn't that good a songwriter. Sunday Morning Coming Down was by the incomparable Kris Kristofferson, Hurt was by Trent Reznor, and Ring of Fire was actually written by his wife, June Carter Cash. I think he did write I Walk the Line and Folsom Prison Blues, though.
Most posters on TTT are so young that they believe the Earth was just formed and was still cooling in 1989, and that all music before 1995 was Fred Flintstone beating on logs.
Not only could Mariah Carey sing with a 5-7 octave vocal range, but she had another hidden talent a secret weapon she is a great songwriter just go back to the first album self- titled Mariah Carey in 1990 the songs are just to powerful and great lyrics deep lyrics and she was just giving us a taste of things to come than the first album songs like vision of love, all in your mind, and love takes time best songwriting from her she is a powerful singer and impressive songwriter as well.

what's with you people?.. / - yohpercy
Anthony Kiedis and John Frusciante... Enough said
His lyrics floats, so that it creats a sense of positive energy, no tight meaning sometimes but still universal. Like a complicated philsosophy turned into a slimpler than poem form. He sure knows what he is saying, he reads, because I see some themes he uses that I know eg parallel univers, a scifi theme and discovery. Sometimes He uses headings, Name dropping, that one could spend a life time to research about or should have to go read about. As a song needs to be compressed. My name is ehys from Nigeria. [email protected] is my email.

Jeff Lynne's compositional genius is in the music. His tunes and chord progressions are breathtakingly original. If you hear one of his songs once, it "hooks" you, and you sing it everywhere - in the shower, in the car, on the toilet. No one writes hooks like Jeff Lynne. Mr Blue Sky is the happiest song ever written, without being cheesy. You can't help but smile. No it's not a Day in the Life rip off. Listen to it! All it has in common with DitL is the boop-boop-boop-boop chord that starts Paul's bridge. Good grief people. - Drtrekker
Jeff Lynne has composed some of the most enduring hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Mr Blue Sky, Telephone Line, Livin' Thing, Free Falling, Runnin' Down a Dream, Handle with Care, When We Was Fab, You Got it, When I Was a Boy, and so many more. Now rappers sample his ELO songs from the 70s and 80s. And he's still writing.
