Greatest Song Writers
The Top Ten
I am giving up on this site after seeing this. His songs are just songs they are poems that embody the whole word. He was considered the voice of his generation, the same generation that had the civil rights movement and Vietnam. Like a rolling stone is the most important song in the history of modern music. The reason he is so low has to be people don't know who he is anymore and because of that, to quote dr farnsworth "i don't want to live on this planet anymore"
The guy has influenced practically every songwriter from Lennon to Jack White, and US presidents have even made references to his lyrics in their very inauguration speeches. Not only did he teach the world that good songs don't have to be about broken hearts by writing lyrics that actually seem relevant, he also wrote some of the finest melodies ever in his unique, yet down-to-earth style. This guy should be number one, for ever! - PeterLuke
A songwriter who crosses into the realms of some the greatest poets and writers who have ever lived. In a thousand years time he will be remembered along side William Shakespeare, William Wordsworth, Dylan Thomas, Ezra Pound and Edgar Allen Poe his words will never be forgotten. He sang at The march on Washington (his song 'When the ship comes in') which saw Martin Luther king Jr produce his iconic 'I have a dream' speech. In conclusion his words were not only beautiful but extremely relevant, he fought not only the injustice of sending men to die in an unnecessary war but the unforgivable treatment of black Americans by the American police force and other authorities, He must therefore be regarded without any questionable doubt as the greatest songwriters of all time, nobody before or since has even come close to this poetic genius. - liamh1381

Unknown by many, Pals lyrics and melodies are a work of creative genius. The pop success of 'Take on me' left many believing a-ha were no more than a pop band, but later albums, and even other tracks from a-ha's debut album "Hunting High and Low" demonstrated that there was more to this composer than met the eye.
9 a-ha albums, 5 Savoy albums and a number of collaborations later, Pal Waaktaar-Savoy is a consummate writer, capable of setting a phrase or refrain in such a way as to twist emotion downwards, or send it soaring.
He is, most definitely, my number 1 song writer.
He is the greatest songwriter, every song he wrote was fantastic. Songs like "Out of blue comes green", Hunting High And Low", "East of the sun west of the moon" are masterpieces. We will never forget Morten's voice, Mags riffs and your wonderful songs. A-HA FOREVER
I love his songs from a-ha and Savoy and I would be glad to hear new songs from him.
Extremely underreated, but one of the best ever in the whole song writing business.V 47 Comments
Hands down the greatest musician to ever live. He inspired many great musicians that most people worship, and he pioneered many genres. If you talk about who wrote the best music it is definitely Lennon. And about lyrics, he makes a fight with Morrissey and Bob Dylan.
John and than Paul. This is not just my opinion this is the way it should be. With songs like imagine, come together, dear prudence, all you need is love, strawberry fields forever and I want to hold your hand there really is no way that he shouldn't be number one.
Lennon was a great songwriter but not a great musician. McCartney and Harrison were both more skilled and versatile on their instruments. Lennon was smart. He wrote great songs and surrounded himself with outstanding musicians.
John was brilliant and his lyrics and songs were other worldly and imbued with the fighting human spirit, social consciousness and means to challenge the human potential. He was brutally honest and courageously self-reflective. Much more so than Paul could ever hope to be and even, George. - Pfeifferpfan
A great song is one I want to hear again and again. Period. Lennon's songs are such. So are McCartney's. The other songwriters on this list can't compete on this measure. They simply don't have the number of great songs
that Lennon has written. Don't let a mag like Rolling Stone push this garbage down your throat that Dylan was the best. With songs like Come Together, I am the Walrus, Instant Karma, A Day in the Life, there is no one who's been as creative as Lennon.
Michael so many amazing songs including "Billie Jean" "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" "Wanna Be Startin' Something" "Bad" "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" "Black or White" "Beat It" "Heal the World" "Earth Song" "They Don't Care About Us" "Stranger in Moscow" and much, much more... - MJforevertheKing
The reason why he is the best songwriter is very simple: he wrote loads of songs that have a connection with him and ALL of his fans. They are all the better taken forward to the epicenter of Michael's creations. Moreover, in terms of quantity, Michael has still so many songs sleeping in vaults that will show in the future that he was still the King Of Songwriting. Wait for songs like "Breed", "ays in Gloucestershire" or "World Of Candy"!
Michael's own solo written and produced tracks were always instant hits. Don't Stop til You Get Enough, You Rock My World, and Black Or White are just some examples of his greatness. Michael has written a few tacky songs, but of course never released them on an album and only gave us his best!
Michael's unreleased songs better than others' greatest hits... Sorry, but MJ is God of music. He wrote gentle, painful, love songs, pop, rock, soul, gospel, charity songs pefectly. These songs make you happy, make you cry, give you faith and force. Messages open your eyes, mind and heart and touch your soul.
He wrote many many important songs: We are the world, Earth song, They don't care about us, Black or white, Heal the world, On the line, Keep the faith
First of all, Paul McCartney is the most successful songwriter in history. His collaborations with John Lennon and solo work has sold more than all the others on this list combined, and yes that DOES include MJ, Freddie Mercury and all the rest put together. Each person's musical taste is their own, and they are entitled to it, but when you throw in Paul's singing career with The Beatles, wings, and solo, he is BY FAT the most successful musician in history.
This list is full of paradoxes. There's no doubt that Paul McCartney deserves to be number 1. Those who suppose otherwise are just local supporters of their own national heros, which has nothing to do with the universal appeal of their music.
McCartney no.5 and Dylan number 1..Wow! Quick,... name 2 songs penned by Dylan that were number one, then name 2 songs penned by McCartney that were number one. Oh, that's right... Dylan never wrote 2 number one songs. He wrote one in a 50+ year career. Impressive. McCartney penned about 30 number one songs..and Dylan's the better songwriter? Makes perfect sense to me. Look, the guys who make up lists like this are the equivalent of a short order cook evaluating surgeons. Stay in your lane.
Its not just his volume of songs, even his album tracks solo or Wings are better than other artists major releases. Its almost ridiculous.He is the supreme melodist of all time. If you can't hum it its not a song.McCartney is head and shoulders above anybody else.And since this is a list of the greatest song writers of all time, it's a no brainer. He's number one.V 20 Comments
It is disgusting that Pete Townshend is ranked 59 on this list. He is easily in the top ten for the list of greatest songwriters in the history of popular music. He pretty much wrote every Who song, including every song for their two rock operas. And then I see the nobodies that are ahead of him on this list. These nobodies wish that at the end of their careers they can have a hint of relevance in music history, whereas Pete will never come close to being forgotten. In my unbiased opinion, The Who are the third greatest band of all time, right after The Beatles and Led Zeppelin, and, although the other three members are very important as well, if Townshend wasn't a key member of that band, they might not even be on the list of the 50 greatest bands of all time. That's how important his songwriting was to the band. A genius of a songwriter and a genius of a musician. Seriously, come on people! Wake up!
Pete is definitely one of the greatest songwriters of our time! Have none of you ever heard, "Blue, Red, and Grey? " That song helped me cope with depression and anxiety, he -saved- my life. Pete is a bloody genius and I hope that one day the world can truly appreciate this lovely man.
Townshend is the best. The first person in rock to combine abandon with intellect and make it work in spectacular fashion. And his solo work equals his greatness with the group, a rare feat indeed. Music and lyrics are of the same incredible standard and his performance prowess seals the deal. Only Hendrix can stand on similar ground.
I'm reading his autobiography now, and he isn't bad - waldoV 3 Comments
Maybe for some it takes a while to realise what the words he transformed in songs mean, but when you get their meaning, they make you cry every time you listen to them. Sang or not. Some dispute his genius, but there's nothing to argue about. He just wrote a part from what humans feel. Just that simple, to get people crying or at least be moved by some words. Come on guys, check that ballads' meaning, you'll get what I'm blabbering here. You'll not lose your time, just gain something instead
an genius at this place.. He is the best song writers I've ever meet.. - ragil_19
how come he's not on the list? he's the world greatest song writer. metal, rock, ballad, even classical! he has them all! music is his blood! - kurenai_tenshi
I think he is genius, his song is unique
It is pure heavymetal try "X", sometimes heavymetal with classical piano try "silent jealousy", sometimes it is beautifully combined metal and ballad "Kurenai", sometimes pure ballad with electric guitar "unfinished", sometimes it is ballad but more like a symphony "tears" "forever love" "Endlless rain" "last song", sometimes it is pure classical "golden globe theme" "without you violin ver"
And his magnum opus
-ART OF LIFE- A 30 minutes piece begin with piano then start the drum and the guitar speed up with a beautiful melody and a mysterious but unique almost ten minute piano solo in the middle (you have to try this) and the song come back again with highspeed then ended up with the same guitar melody like in the beginning... it is truly an art... of life...
I'm shocked, no one voted for this dashingly brilliant guy. He is the most inspirational artists of the 20th century, TONES of today's bands just owe him - music, style (hey, J-Rock luvers, visual key was his invention))) - EVERYTHING. At least he deserves this for Ashes to Ashes)))
Tim has the power to say the most complicated emotions in the simplest of words! He has the gift of moving hearts with his words. It there is one person who really knows about human emotions and human condition, that's him. He might not be that well known because he is not into the whole rockstar culture and the high life, but he's got the ability to move thousands of people with his lyrics and that's why from a 14 year old to a 50 year old weeps at his lyrics at concerts and behind their closed doors. Tim Rice Oxley is a modern maestro... Or as we say MaesT. R.O... He truely deserves to be on the list of the best lyricist of this century!
I really can't sum up all my feelings for this great songwriter, he is deep in an emotional way, his music touches the most intimate vibes of the human kind, no matter what age, language, gender you are, you will feel related to his writing. His melodies are in a way melodic and catchy, they are sometimes dramatic and intense, the melodies speak for themselves. There is no song of Tim that I don�'t enjoy.
He talks about so many things, not only love and lost, the path of the human being growing old, the modern world issues, how people change, how you loose friends, how your loved one has become a stranger to you. I love Tim in so many ways that I can�'t describe, his lyrics have changed my life for the better, they took me from the darkest places and showed me some light. Tim, you are magnificent!
Tim is a 'modern maestro'! By his own admission he is not a great musician but he has certainly mastered the art of writing heartfelt lyrics. Tim can relate a whole story within the space of a few minutes. For me he is a 'wordsmith' because his skill with words conveys the meaning of every song he has written. Long may he continue to do so! An extremely under-rated songwriter!

Freddie Mercury Bohemian Rhapsody song is by far the best Written song Freddie Mercury wrote that song went down in history as the best Rock song of All Time, with the Deep Lyrics and the Opera sound really showed off Freddie Mercury Four Octave Vocal Range and made him one of the best singers ever, Bohemian Rhapsody song is one of the weirdest songs but the song is also one of the most popular songs ever made by a band and written by Freddie Mercury, and We Are The Champions is a song that nobody can't sing including Bohemian Rhapsody dong, and other songs such as Another One Bites The Dust and the famous Bass Riff song Under Pressure if you can think of the Under Pressure Bass Riff you are a genius and that's what Freddie Mercury was, he was a Genius with a great voice he is one of the strongest Tenors I've ever heard his voice risen in strength and Substance and Conviction and power, God truely blessed Freddie Mercury with a Voice, Love Freddie Mercury.
I don't take this list seriously just because of the fact that some guy from a-ha is number 1. Then there are other people in the top ten who either don't deserve to be there or no one knows. Then you have legendary songwriters that are so low on this list like Pete Townshend (55? ). All-in-all, if you're doing legitimate research on great songwriters, don't pay much attention to this list.
If you don't vote for Freddie, I will hunt you down. And stuff. And if you just listen to 'My Melancholy Blues', I think you'll understand he can sing any genre, fool. :-)
Bohemian Rhapsody, Don't stop me now, Somebody to love, Crazy little thing called love, Bicycle race, Killer Queen, Love of my life, You take my breath away, We are the champions, Winter's tale, My melancholy blues... - bzsuzsi0128V 10 Comments
My favorite songs that he made, are Piano Man, The Entertainer, Angry Young Man, Running on ice, My Life, Honesty, New York State of Mind, And Say Goodbye to Hollywood; Billy Joel should be # 3 on the list. he's AWESOME!
Billy Joel has more talent in his pinky then many artists considered to be great by today's standards and NOBODY can tell a story through their songs like billy Joel. I am a teenager in high school and I listen to Billy Joel daily. My other recommendation is Elton John.
One of the greatest song writers of all time. He is the only singer I feel like that has truly written his life in his songs. Each song is like a scene or moment of his life. Just amazing.
Better than Elton JohnV 2 Comments
Richie is so awesome! Not only has he contributed to a majority of Bon Jovi's songs, but his solo stuff is amazing!
he's the second songwriter of bon jovi and he wrote his solo stuff!
No, we don't all know that Sambora is the greatest guitar player of all time, and if you check the list of Top Ten guitarists of all time, you'll find he's not even in the top ten. Nor is he a great songwriter. I mean, I can write on this page that I am president of the United States. That doesn't make it true.
Just another over rated non entity who has contributed nothing to modern music. Looks silly too with that dumb cowboy hat that he wore for years.V 2 Comments
He deserves to be number one. Of course, there's the monumental 'Stairway to Heaven, ' but apart from that, there are other, far lesser known songs like Achilles Last Stand and Carouselambra (they're really really poetic). There's also the breadth of his songwriting, ranging from outpourings of longing such as 'Ten Years Gone, ' to songs like Black Dog and Trampled Underfoot, which are rife with innuendos. And then, of course, there are Led Zep's ten minute epics
He's so creative and very imaginative
One of the greats in song writing
Extremely creative and poeticV 1 Comment
Are you people crazy take hetfield and ulrich and give them 5 mins to write lyrics that will change your life just listen to every Metallica song from the best to the worst EVERY ONE of their songs are full of meaning example: FOR WHOM THE FAKING BELL TOLLS!
Listen to One, Fade To Black and you will know why I voted for him - nooreldeen
THE BEST. Just listen to Kill 'Em All through the Black Album! - HolyDeth

...wrote more than 200 songs for Queen, his own band, and others.
Yes, let's run through the list of people who have done her songs. Aretha (Natural Woman), Dave Mason (Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow), James Taylor (You've Got a Friend, among others), Grand Funk Railroad (Locomotion), Steve Lawrence (Go Away Little Girl), the Monkees (Pleasant Valley Sunday), the Beatles (Chains), the Shirelles (Love Me Tomorrow), etc, etc, etc. I challenge anyone to come up with a list of songs written by anyone above her (save for Dylan and the Beatles) that can equal Carole King.
This list is a joke! I can't even believe the names I am seeing on this list! Has anyone on here ever heard of Bob Dylan? Townes Van Zandt? Leonard Cohen? Paul Simon?... I can understand why you would have Carole King, Billy Joel, Freddie Mercury, and Michael Jackson on here, and I do like Keane, but this is really a joke. Go back to elementary school for a few more years and try again!
A guy from Bon Jovi and a guy from Keane are ahead of this woman?
She wrote Tapestry for gods sake! Just think of all the legends who have sung her songs, Aretha Franklin etc.
He is one of the most tragic stories in music history. He was mentally and musically gifted and the fact he could overcome a bad childhood to show that is credit. If he lived longer I am confident he would be in the top three. Much more humble than the likes of McCartney. His surreal but heavy sounds spoke to many
Part of his genius was his ability to write great songs with meaning and an edge. The voice of his generation (whether he liked it or not).
Kurt was a troubled guy, but because of that it made him one of the greatest song writers of all time. In dave Grohls words "he could take something that would take me an hour to explain and put it in two words". It's sad to see him so far down here at 31.
Cobain is the perfect songwriter. He took rock music back to it's roots and performed with pure rock spirit Hendrix' style. He had a way to use words in a very powerful, deep way. If Bukowsky had been a rock'n rolla, he would've done something similar.
With "Smells like teen spirit" he somehow managed to bring rock music back to the mainstream, while creating the ultimate pop song wich, ironically, is a sharp critic to pop culture and vain entertainment. He could write a classic song and at the same time revolutionize a music scene. If he'd still be alive, he'd be as top as Lennon and McCartney in pop music history.
I think this list would be quite different if everybody voting took some time to listen to the writing of Waters. There are a lot of great song writers out there, but Roger has a very unique way of making power- and meaningful lyrics which blends in perfectly with the music resulting in the best constructed songs of all time. Furthermore his solo career and work with Floyd consists of albums, which are to be considered as a combined product of music and not just separat songs. These factors makes Roger Waters the best song writer ever.
This rankings sucks, if Roger is on #39. His music isn't for everyone, if you know what I mean. While listening to his work, your brain must work at 100%, you can't relax. You're starting to think about world, cruel world.
Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall, and The Final Cut - his masterwork with Pink Floyd - Zahveed
He wrote THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON!V 7 Comments
He wrote Phantom of the Opera, Hallowed Be Thy Name, The Trooper, Aces High, Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Alexander the Great, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, Mother Russia, Fear of the Dark, Sign of the Cross, The Clansman, Blood Brothers, For the Greater Good of God, When the Wild Wind Blows and The Red & the Black all BY HIMSELF! There is only one god and his name is Steve Harris!
Why in the world is he not top spot by a mile. He's not your every day pop song writer, he is a metal song writer, and no one beats the man. He's wrote so many good songs for Iron maiden, and Iron maiden are still one of the best bands in the world, because of the magnificent songwriter!
One word about him... Epic
I was going to vote for him, but he just shot me with his guitar...V 1 Comment
Don't get me wrong James Hetfield is very very talented, but he is in no way whatsoever a better songwriter than Ian Curtis. A better musician? Absolutely, a better singer? that's debatable. But in no planet, realm, or universe is he a better songwriter, period.
Leonard has written one of the most covered songs in recent years, Hallelujah. Think about that.
Leonard cohen simplyrules and should be closer to the top of tjis list, fools

It just seems wrong to have Joni Mitchell sandwiched between someone named Tamer Hosny and someone named Nick Cave.
Hands down Number One. Better material than over rated Dylan.
I like Paul and John better for the Beatles, but George is really good. And then as a solo artist, he takes the crown.
He wrote Apologize, good life, counting stars, secrets, all the right moves, and EVERY OTHER ONE of OneRepublic's songs, as well as Halo, Bleeding Love, Brighter than the sun, Already Gone, Rumour has it, battlefield, lucky strike, love somebody, not over you, sleepwalker, turning tables, as well as countless others. He is one of the best active songwriters right now!
Ryan Tedder is a modern music genius. He has written songs for singers from different genres. Such as as Pop, Rock, Country, and Hip Hop. Can You think of songwriters who write for different genres?
Has written so many hits for bands that aren't his own and, to top it all off, has one of the most beautiful falsettos of all time.
Amazing songwriter! OneRepublic have the best songs because he's just so great at singing, producing, and writing songs.
This list sucks. It's incomplete without Jim. I seriously do not know what's wrong with you people. Jim Morrison is the greatest song-writer of all time. Period.
One of the greatest songwriters of his generations his dark mysterious music can be soothing to the soul
Very good poetry. Made decent songs baltantly about drugs. - Lucretia
Great song writer. His songs became big part of great movies of past.
This man's melodies will be in the hearts and minds of human beings, hundreds of years from now.

On the Top Tens list of singer/songwriters, which is much more legit than this bogus list, he is deservedly in the top ten, at number six.
VERY good song lyrics. one of my favorite song writers - Lizzthaashizz
In my opinion, Paul Simon deserves to be in the TOP TEN.
Great melodies and good lyrics.
Paul Simon is a lyrical genius, providing tunes such as Slip Slidin' Away, and has some amazing arrangements. I am shocked to see how low he is on this list.
Hey babe, take a walk on the wide side
Just fantastic! Every word, every sound, and every rhyme flow naturally! He is outstanding at what he does!
Sorry to read about his son, that's terrible...
Noel Gallagher is the most genius songwriter ever. It should be placed in the top ten at least. Need more than a talent to create some glorious song like wonderwall and champagne supernova
He should be in the Top 10, you need many talent to write a song like Wonderwall or Morning Glory and so on...
One of the best of all time. To write songs like wonderwall and live forever is a great talent.
He's just a genius, the greatest songwriter of last 20 years - RossoneriV 3 Comments
Tamer's lyrics are so meaningful, he writes lovely and great songs! - Shakaib
That's wonderful. Maybe someday I'll know who this guy is.
Described as the Chord King by Steve Hackett, Tony has a love affair with Harmony. He has developed his own style/method of using chords, arranging his songs and his passion as a composer comes across in everything he does and he has done. Most popular for his involvement with Genesis, Tony's original stuff is often overlooked. This is probably due to the fact that many out there might not understand the connection he has between him and his music. However, those who have followed his solo career reap the benefits of the musical world of Tony Banks. He knows what he likes and he freely exercises his passion and always sticks to his principles. What you see is what you get. Absolute genius.
Although I love all of the members of Genesis and they all made huge unique contributions to the band by adding their own sound & ideas, I think Tony was the most important cog in creating the Genesis sound as he wrote or co-wrote on almost every Genesis song during their Golden Era from Trespass through Wind & Wuthering. Tony's songwriting has always been melodic and accessible whether it was fierce or beautiful, complex or stripped down to the basics.
Tony's ability to combine effortless harmonic virtuosity with genuinely strong compositional talent places him at the forefront of songwriters from the past 50 years.
Often lyrically challenging, always melodically and harmonically satisfying, Tony's works never cease to both entertain and intrigue in a way that is unique among his peers.
Tony Banks in my opinion should be #1! He's written such awesome tracks both with Genesis and in his solo career! I mean Tony wrote 'A Curious Feeling'! That is a masterpiece!V 1 Comment
Not to be down on Johnny or anything because I am a huge fan but he wasn't that good a songwriter. Sunday Morning Coming Down was by the incomparable Kris Kristofferson, Hurt was by Trent Reznor, and Ring of Fire was actually written by his wife, June Carter Cash. I think he did write I Walk the Line and Folsom Prison Blues, though.
Each lyric has a special meaning to not only myself, but I think that goes for the rest of the Echelon as well. Truly amazing with words, Jared can evoke a sense of happiness, anger, and excitement all in one song, verse, or even line like no other songwriter out there.
When he writes songs, each song has something everyone can relate to. That's what makes him so incredible.
Every song he writes incites emotions. That's a sign of a true songwriter.
His songwriting is filled with so much soul, his melodies have formed a major part of my love for music, they are so memorable and always get me in the emotional state intended from the song. I can count on Elton John to always get me in the mood I want to be at: happy (i.E. tiny Dancer), sad (i.E. sacrifice), nostalgic (i.E. rocket Man), relaxed (i.E. the One), excited (i.E. levon), romance (i.E. I Guess that's why they call it the blues), empowered (i.E. believe), and even hauntingly beautiful melodies like Where to now St. Peter. He has such a great amount of other great songs as well, absolutely love his musical sense.
with songs like catalyst, it should be in at least top 20 - sanketbhambhani
Prior to L'Arc en Ciel hiatus in 2001-2004, there's not a single of his written-song told the same story. Every one of them has great character and wide range of vocabulary, not to mention his poetic writing style. He wrote a song about puppy love like Picasso painting a beautiful scenery. His written song range from a anybody heart break love song into romeo-juliet complex. From adrenaline rush lover biker story into otherworldly farewell song. And don't forget, all in Shakespeare style.
"Niji", "White Feathers", "I wish", "Anata", "Pieces", "Butterfly's Sleep", "Honey", "READY STEADY GO", "MY HEART DRAWS A DREAM" are just a small sample of what hyde can do
the main songwriter of the band who has very deep lyrics behind the songs of l arc en ciel - ronluna

Why isn't Taylor swift in the top ten? She has been writing songs since she was 16 and they were all a hit! I hear everybody singing to them and she just has a gift with songwriting and wrote them from her heart!
She has written her songs since the age of 11 and they all are personal and very catchy
Come on! I got to scroll down to find this TALENTED singer? She could easily be at the top! She's just so good I actually CAN'T believe she only 79. Her songs are like THE BEST. It's written in such a good way and every of them touched my heart. Don't they touch YOUR heart?

How is Ed Sheeran not on top? Just because he didn't write songs 50 years ago doesn't mean he isn't great. Not only does he write all his songs which are amazing, he also wrote some good songs for singers like One Direction and Taylor Swift which I normally don't like. I mean you might not like them as a whole but if you listen to Little Things and Everything Has Changed, which Ed Sheeran wrote, it might slightly change your mind. All his songs are beautifully written no matter who sings them.
Just listen to them and you will fall in love with his lyrics.
I was about to vote for him when you told me he wrote a song for One Direction...I guess I still like him anyway.
