The Contenders: Page 5
He writes and sang for linkin park and fort minor (a separate band he made) including remember the name, Where'd you go and just an all round great song writer vocalist rapper guitarist piano he has the total package guys vote up was surprised he was not on the list.
Dylan, yes I'll give you that, but he's American.For a English northern person, nobody speaks more truth. The feeling of being trapped, the hopelessness and struggle. Achingly beautiful lyrics, the mystique. He's all you'll ever need.
Probably the best lyricist of all time, just listen to How Soon Is Now?
A songwriter which everyone can relate to at least one of his songs. A bright spark in a decade of mostly Synthpop love songsV 1 Comment
It's a shame that R.E.M. are no longer active, but man is Michael Stipe talented or what? He helped write some of the defining songs of the 80s and 90s and his distinctive voice is one of the greatest to come out of the world of rock music.
Such an amazing and talented guy. He has inspired some of the best songs that have ever been written
His songs are heartfelt and beautiful
Some of the best songs I have ever heard
Best singer and his songs are awesome
Tupac has touched many peoples hearts with his great lyrics and music. He was for the community, for the people, for the world. Tupac is the greatest musician artist of all time, Period.
If he was not in this list I was not gonna vote
Tupac must be in top 10 I can't believe he is rank here! What he can do a lot of people didn't and will not succed. One man like Tupac is born once in 1000 years.
He should be in the top 20 atlaest
He should be number one he's the only one to do everything himself!
MJ didn't write all his songs I have 10 albums of MJ and I don't see him everywhere!
Prince is a singer, songwriter, dancer, guitarist, drummer, pianist...
Jackson is actually in front of him twice.
Yes, should be top 5 definitely. Who are these people saying Madonna and MJ in front of Prince for songwriting?
How the hell is Bob Marley behind Taylor Swift and Kelly Clarkson?!? What has the world come to? - Kfox101
How the hell is Bob Marley behind Taylor Swift and Kelly Clarkson?!? - Kfox101
No he should be top 5
Character portraits, cynical and heartfelt love ballads, intimate confessionals, sardonic political songs...is there a current songwriter pulling off the risks Conor Oberst takes with such aplomb? I don't think so. His album "I'm Wide Awake It's Morning" is one masterpiece after another.
Best in the world, his writing has so much meaning and storyline that all these other songwriters can't even compare.
Every song is a treat for the mind and imagination.. The capacity of his songs to make you not just listen to what he is saying but seeing what he wants to show you.. It's just amazing listening Passanger..
the greatest singer, frontman, vocalist, songwriter of D'ERLANGER - ronluna
Just listen to "You Really Got Me", "Waterloo Sunset", "Dedicated Follower of Fashion", "David Watts", "Sunny Afternoon", "Days", "Lola", "Apeman" and others 40 songs at the same songwriting level and you'll see why I voted for him.
Anybody that can rhyme Dracula and vernacular gets my vote. Best British songwriter, bar none. Major influence on both heavy metal and punk rock. The thinking man's rock star.
No wonder he is this low, not enough people have even listened to his and Kinks' achievements in music.
I just love her songs
She is amazing
Why so low?
Can't believe bono is at 47, he's a way better songwriter then mark hoppus and mariah carey. Also a better showman
Of course, that Bono item on this list is not fair, he deserves to be in TOP 3!
Bono is one of the greatest live frontmen of all time and though he isn't much of a musician (he can hardly play guitar), he's a solid songwriter, a great showman, and a truly amazing human being outside of U2.V 2 Comments
