Top Ten Best Songwriting Partnerships In Rock and Metal
Stay With Me, Shake Shudder And Shiver, Cindy Incedently, Borstal Boys, Poolhall Richard, some of the best rock songs ever written.
The awesome partnership of everyone's favourite 60's rock band. I feel sorry for George Harrison though.
How are they not number 1!?
Put John Lennon and Paul McCartney in the #1 spot
They're the most iconic duo on this list
A slightly underrated partnership compared to Lennon and McCartney in my opinion. I just wish that they had given Mick Taylor credit on certain songs (Sway, Moonlight Mile, Winter, Time Waits for No One, etc.)
Both Still going strong today.
From The Smiths. I'm surprised that they weren't already added to the list.
Elton and Bernie FOREVER... followed by Don Henley and Glenn Frey.
Wrote a lot of Zeppelin's songs together.
They've been writing together for 30 years and they wrote great songs. They are perfectionists.
Blind Guardian rules.
André focuses on music and Hansi on lyrics.
André comes up with some general idea (melody, riff), other members contribute and then Hansi arranges everything.
Hansi wrote both music and lyrics only for their first 2-3 albums.
I fear it might only be Angus now...
Those two are the heart and soul of AC/DC, great songwriters
Both have contributed to all of AC/DC's songs.
Although they occasionally wrote separately, they both wrote the awesome Raining Blood!
They are fantastic songwriters. Love you Evanescence
Because Jim was such a charismatic, flamboyant, person, the other members of The Doors tend to get ignored. Such a shame.
Writing credits usually just listed as "The Doors".
Motown's greatest songwriting team
They only wrote three songs together as a duo (Is This the World We Created, Bijou, Mother Love). Most of their songs were written by the individual members (even in later years when they agreed to split the credits equally).
