Hauntingly beautiful songs. Complex yet subtle melodies.

52 Stevie Wonder Stevie Wonder Stevland Hardaway Morris, known by his stage name Stevie Wonder, is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist.

People of different generations loved his many classics... They sound as fresh and soulfully good now as ever. He not only was an extremely gifted songwriter. He recorded and performed live superbly with that God given voice... It is between him and McCartney bottom line.

Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney! Melody JUST doesn't get ANY BETTER! - frank

Stevie is one of the greatest. Top 10.

If you don't believe he ought to be higher, listen to Songs in the Key of Life or Innervisions, two of the greatest albums ever.

53 Thom Yorke Thom Yorke Thomas Edward "Thom" Yorke is an English musician best known as the singer and principal songwriter of the alternative rock band Radiohead.

Thom Yorke has such a unique voice and like the rest of his band Radiohead, he's not afraid to really experiment. So many artists these days stick with one sound, but Yorke and friends are masters of true creativity in songwriting.

One of the best people! Just check out these songs:

Paranoid Android
Karma Police
Fake Plastic Trees
How To Disappear Completely
Street Spirit
There There
Pyramid Song
Thinking About You
Knives Out.

He's so underrated, better than Swift and Bellamy.

He made all of these brilliant songs... - fuddox

When a rock singer above him write an album as majestic and monstruous as OK Computer we can talk. In the meanwhile he is, to this day, the greatest song writer of the recent times. Period. Kid A, The Bends, and entire discography written by him. Not saying the rest of the band are not incredible musicians. Its just that you can tell most of the main ideas come from Thom, the extraterrestrial. Hardly another lead of any band comes close to his countless rock gems. Yeah, not even Oasis which is a faster mlre upbeating/modern "the Beatles".
