"I do what I want, and I want what I see." See what he did there? I just want to quote every song he ever wrote. Him and Velvet Underground had such a big influence on music crossing the 60s-70s decade. So many people don't know who he is, despite the fact that he basically godfathered punk rock. His connection lyrically to musically is also amazing. Most musicians have the music, that sounds good, and the lyrics, that are good, next to each other. Lou connects them and creates so much more emotion of the listener. In Caroline Says II: "You can hit me all you want." *No piano* "but I don't love you anymore" * beautiful piano that almost made me cry*. Shame that he isn't appreciated more. Then again, this is just a list.
Who else can make anything a sweet and seductive love song!?
#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.
Hey, don't worry, he's still unjustly ranked ahead of Cat Stevens.V 2 Comments
If Diamond is 172. Then the world has been blessed with talent galore. Not to surprised, he's difficult to pigeon hole, so many varied albums. Only his hard core fans realize what a talent he is.
Anyone ever heard if this guy? I find it funny people with only moderate success made the 164 but Diamond which is a top 10 didn't make it at all.
Agree, find many here who I think confuse a sexy voice with songwriting, sure you can have both but this list is best songwriters, not hottest looking up on stage, best dancer, etc. Genres seem to influence as well...187 and no blues, very limited folk, no jazz, one country, no swing, no David Byrne, etc BooWoo.V 2 Comments
He has created great songs for Nightwish, and was good that it suits each singer's style!
Not because he's a pioneer or legend BUT for his actually remarkable songwriting ability that is just pure, raw Rock n Roll. Just check some of his songs and tell me if that's not hard to do. Go Chuck Go!
His voice is amazing and so are the lyrics to all p! atd's songs
P! ATD is so great
their lyrics are so meaningful - sjd
Alessia Cara is the most amazing songwriter ever!
No reason for him to be this low.

Harry is the man. No doubt about it. Lennon loved him, I love him, you love him. Not much more to say.V 1 Comment
