Top Ten Best Singer/Songwritersredwings5
The Contenders: Page 6
What he only won "writer of the year" like 5 times in a ROW- Belongs in
the top 10 at least - ifnotforgrace
Probably the most underrated singer/songwriter of all time (by those not in the biz)
The genius of Kristofferson escapes many. But that is ok.
His lyrics are right up there with Dylan's.
Laura Nero has the best voice of women, creative lyrics and wrote her own songs.
She was one amazing songwriter. Bob Dylan liked her chords apparently.
He's lyrics ARE amazing & he should be #1! - Niikura_Akonya
The man was in two of the best bands ever and wrote and performed the entire first Foo Fighters album. Half the people ahead of him on this list have their songs written for them or don't have a single instrument in their songs
Dave Grohl is not only the former drummer of one of the defining bands of the early 90s grunge movement, but his current band Foo Fighters has been on top of the world for over two decades now. How is he not even in the top 100?!?
A top 50 writer for certain! Great talent!
He's a genius! Sensitive yet human, mysterious yes so universal! Sublime!
THE BEST BRILLIANT, ME AS A ADDICT STAYING IN THE GHETOS OF CAPE TOWN FIND HIS LYRICS HEALING THERAPHEUTIC, ITS HELL HERE AND I FIND MY INNER SELF THRU HIS LYRICS AND DAVID GAHANS VOICE
Of course patti smith is at 65. I should be glad shes this high.anyway, in my opinion, shes the only person who comes close to dylan in terms of lryics - RecklessGreed
Why matt in 106.. he must be in the top 10! Just listen soaked by adam lambert and uprising by muse... he is guitarist of decade in Q MAGAZINE...
what? 83?! His beautiful voice combined with his creativity is pure art, he really deserves to be much higher.
What an amazing MUSEician (pun intended haha), Matt is easily the best guitarist to come out of the early 2000s. Not many can match his distinctive, beautiful voice either.
Underrated, as always. Really had a beautiful voice.
Not one better at blending words and music.
Amy Winehouse toward the bottom? What is wrong with people? She spoke to lots of women when no one else could. She deserves to be at least in the Top 20, and definitely before Taylor Swift! Whoever put Taylor on such a high rank needs to listen to real music.
Why is he on this list at all? I don't want to live in a world where M. Shadows is barely outside of the top 100 songwriters of all time.
This Woman influenced a fleet of female singer songwriters and should be right at the top of this list, which has no real value. She was the first woman to reach number 1 spot with a first self penned song :Wuthering Heights.
She is consistently amazing, so much better than all the people above her!
perfect. Witty lyrics of Dylan with the most innovative and experimental music you will hear. Pure genius.
Very original artist who is a somewhat aquired taste... But when you've listened to a couple of hours of his work you'll begin to realise what a genius he is and will be looking at more of his music.
