122 Carly Simon

Carly has had a long and amazing career. She is terribly underrated!

123 Kenny Loggins
124 Harry Chapin

The greatest songwriter of the early 70s. Not fir radio, which is why the cranking is so low.

125 Lil Wayne Lil Wayne  Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., also known professionally as Lil Wayne, is an American rapper. He was signed to Cash Money Records by Birdman at a young age . He has been critically acclaimed and even more panned throughout his career . He's often criticized for constantly talking about money, girls, and more.
126 Klaus Meine Klaus Meine V 1 Comment
127 Lee Mavers

To be honest lee mavers possibly is the greatest songwriter the world has ever seen too bad drugs and his own insanity got the better of him.

Top 10 at least! He's certainly better than Josh Groban! On the level of Lennon/McCartney!

128 Cat Stevens Cat Stevens Yusuf Islam, commonly known by his former stage name Cat Stevens, is a British singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, humanitarian, and education philanthropist.

It's about time! I realize he hasn't done anything new for a long time, but the stuff he wrote in the early seventies will live on and on...

Great timeless lyrics with much feels! Amazing writer for the children. Should be top 75 for sure!

129 Alex Turner Alex Turner Alexander David "Alex" Turner is an English musician. He is the lead vocalist, guitarist, and principal songwriter of the English rock band Arctic Monkeys.

Best singer and songwriter! His songs are unique and beautiful.

I officially believe this list is just stupid, despite the top 10 being decent for once

Quality singer/songwriter, deserves to be in top 5. Lyrics to the album 'Humbug' is on another level.

131 Sia Sia

Lol, Sia should be number one. The amount of hits she writes these days, and she is still able to keep an indie self image. Truly amazing.

She is a songwriting genius! She wrote Rihanna's Diamonds in 14 minutes! She is e greatest songwriter of the century!

132 Max Martin

He has written over 167 songs. Almost all of them have become immensely successful. He writes super cool songs that people still know the lyrics to ten years later.

133 Rufus Wainwright Rufus Wainwright

Rufus beats anyone else on this list hands down in my opinion.

134 Geri Halliwell Geri Halliwell
135 Willis Alan Ramsey
136 J.J. Cale
137 Lou Reed Lou Reed V 1 Comment
138 Immortal Technique Immortal Technique Felipe Andres Coronel, better known by the stage name Immortal Technique, is an American rapper and urban activist from Lima, Peru.
139 Ville Valo Ville Valo

Who else can make anything a sweet and seductive love song!?

140 Vanessa Carlton Vanessa Carlton

#135?! This is a woman whose music cannot be described. Pick up a copy of "Rabbits on the Run" and you will understand what I mean. That album has some of the greatest indie-folk music that you will ever hear in your life, and how often does a female singer-songwriter put out an indie-folk album? It's such a disgrace to see her placed under no-talents like Fred Durst and Bruno Mars.

A woman who is inspiring and amazingly talented, yet excruciatingly underrated at the same time. Give her latest album, "Rabbits on the Run, " a listen, and you'll see what I mean. That is all.
