161 Harry Nilsson

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

168 Neil Diamond Neil Diamond Neil Leslie Diamond is an American singer-songwriter and musician with a career that began in the 1960s.

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.

171 Sandy Denny Sandy Denny Alexandra Elene MacLean Denny, later known as Sandy Denny, was an English singer-songwriter who was lead singer for the folk rock band Fairport Convention.
172 Chris Martin Chris Martin

How is Chris Martin so low on the list? Coldplay wrote some of the best songs of the 2000s thus far, with plenty of hits and 6 straight number one albums in the UK. Chris was an integral part of this... "Viva La Vida," "Paradise," "Yellow," and "Clocks" are some of the most recognizable songs in recent history. There are a lot of hidden gems in Coldplay's catalogue though that deserve much more appreciation; "Politik" and "Strawberry Swing" are pure masterpieces.
