The Contenders: Page 11
This songwriting team from Australia wrote so many hits. For the own group in the 60's The Easybeats and for my other artist. Some of these songs - Friday On My Mind -St. Louis - Good Times - Evie " let your hair hang down " - Love Is In the Air
Listen to his OLD albums. I Feel For You, Nothing Compares to U, Sugar Walls. These were by him. Not to mention Vanity 6, the Timeand his own albums.
Not a big fan of Country music but how can you NOT have him on this listV 1 Comment
Some the BEST lyrics I have ever listened to.
Just listen to some Parliament/Funkadelic albums. Some of the best lyrics EVER!
Evil Woman, Can't Get It Out of Head... Some of his latter stuff not so great but the older stuff was awesome!
Can write some beautiful songs
He should be higher on this list.
Jared Leto is the best lyricist right now. -.-
Should be far, far higher - definitely the thinking man's punk!
His lyrics are versatile and utterly brilliant. Very intellectual (sometimes disturbingly so) vibe to most of his songs.
