192 J.D. Souther

It's great to see J. D. Souther on this list. He helped Don Henley and Glenn Frey write some of the Eagles best songs, like New Kid in Town, Best of My Love, and Heartache Tonight. But Souther being on this list also helps point out what a horrid list this is. Because you know who isn't on here? That's right, HENLEY AND FREY!

Lady gaga's music has a very powerful meaning. Each song has it's own story and is able to explain something amazing. When I listen to her music it always speaks to me. I love her so much. Some people just think she is an annoying singer who doesn't deserve being called an artist but honestly to me she is an amazing woman who is capable of mostly anything. I am very proud of being able to call her my mother monster when you really think about and get a chance to see her on an interview you will really get to to see what kind of person she is. Love you mother monster and remember : "when you're lonely I'll be lonely too, and this is the fame" love and art 12-18 1974 :) paws
