Very underrated/under recognized singer and songwriter.
Absolute favourite. Love his work.
Top 10 songwriter at least
Neil is literally my favourite singer/songwriter ever. I get that he's underrated outside of NZ and AU but 131?! I'd highly recommend listening to Crowded House, Split Enz, The Finn Brothers, 7 Worlds Collide Project Pajama Club and Neil's Solo Stuff. Whatever your taste or age or whatever there's nothing like sing along to a Neil Finn song and knowing that at least one person is going to smile and join in. Actually Tim's pretty amazing as well and I'm surprised I haven't seen Dave Dobbyn or Don Mcglashan yet but it seems as if this list was taken over by a lot of pop stars who don't even write their own songs after a certain point so it's sad to see Neil at 131 :(V 2 Comments
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.V 1 Comment
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.
Very underrated. One of the best lyricists of all time
"Duh. Taylor Swift is the best songwriter of our generation! " BULLCRAP! That title goes to Isbell any day. Just listen to "Cover Me Up", "Stockholm", and Seven-Mile Island" and you'll see what I mean.
Carly has had a long and amazing career. She is terribly underrated!
The greatest songwriter of the early 70s. Not fir radio, which is why the cranking is so low.
He write lot of lyrics.. keep moving klaus meine..
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!
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!
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.
Johnny was an amazing songwriter! His voice is noticeable in any songs he is in! For instance, I didn't know much about Johnny. But my friend showed me a song called "Highwayman" It is Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, and Johnny Cash. They are in order on their parts. I instantly noticed Johnny Cash on his part instantly.
Bob Dylan's a great songwriter, but I don't think there's anyone that can beat Johnny Cash. Just listen to "The Man Comes Around" and that will prove my point. - Mumbizz01
Rufus beats anyone else on this list hands down in my opinion.
