He made a very deep and touching lyrics
Sometimes his lyrics are not easy to understand
Each lyrics he made has a deep meaning
Beautiful voice, great range, catching melodies, captivating live and non-live l'arc~en~ciel forever!
He is simply one of the creates songwriters of all time, he established a genre and became the voice of an entire generation. He voiced all the angst that covered teenagers he accomplished many things in his life. Kurt Cobain is amazing.
Kurt doesn't deserve 17th. He was one of the most original songwriters ever. Every single one of Nirvanas songs as proof - Danielsun182
Nobody can write a song like Kurt! RIP. Find me one songwriter better than Kurt Cobain (Kurdt Kobain). What did he ask to be rememberd as?
What he was best at! Writing songs! Vote for him! Or else...
When I first heard lithium I thought it was just random nonsense but after finding out lithium is an antidepressant I made so much more sense. He wrote other great songs like old age which didn't even make an album which shows how talented he is.V 22 Comments
Best song writer and to back that up best singer ever
Steve Perry was the lead singer for Journey from 1977 to 1996. During that time he cowrote most of the band's music. He also released two solo albums, one in 1984 and the other in 1994. He is an amazingly talented singer, with a huge range and a beautiful voice.
He is just an angel when it comes to musicV 2 Comments
He deserves to be higher. So much higher - BekoT.
170? He needs to be in the 50s... At least - ryanrimmel
How the hell is Bob Marley behind Taylor Swift and Kelly Clarkson?!? What has the world come to? - 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..
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
Guns N' Roses - Breakdown
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?
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.
Why is Ray Davies at 102? He is one of my absolute favorite songwriters. Ray writes in a very straightforward, plainspoken manner that I really appreciate. He was one of the few songwriters at the time who dared to call out 60s culture and English society for what it was; he is also very witty and sarcastic. Give "Something Else By the Kinks", "The Village Green Preservation Society", "Arthur", and "Lola vs. Powerman and the Moneygoround" and you will understand why he is one of my absolute favorites.
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.
