Greatest Song Writers
The Contenders: Page 4
A working man's musician and incredible lyrics and melodies, how he is not number one I do not know. In each song he fits the message that everyone else can only fit into an album. Bruce is the best.
Bob dylan then bruce end of story.
HOW is Bruce ranked so low? He connects with the human condition unlike anyone else, all in perfect poetry.

She not only created a song about love, but she also created a song that can inspired the young people to continue to try to achieve his dreams.
Hm, I think she is the one

He writes his own music and it rules!
Most posters on TTT are so young that they believe the Earth was just formed and was still cooling in 1989, and that all music before 1995 was Fred Flintstone beating on logs.
Anthony Kiedis and John Frusciante... Enough said
His lyrics floats, so that it creats a sense of positive energy, no tight meaning sometimes but still universal. Like a complicated philsosophy turned into a slimpler than poem form. He sure knows what he is saying, he reads, because I see some themes he uses that I know eg parallel univers, a scifi theme and discovery. Sometimes He uses headings, Name dropping, that one could spend a life time to research about or should have to go read about. As a song needs to be compressed. My name is ehys from Nigeria. [email protected] is my email.
Why the hell is he there. he should be in the top ten. he has wrote the best songs in history. don't get me wrong his old stuff werent that good but when it got to blood sugar sex magik his writing got a hell of a lot better.most of his songs have meanings and some of the songs are based on the same story. its like he wants to tell us a story by singing. this list is shocking and who ever made it needs to rethink. anthony kiedis is the absolute best

Jeff Lynne's compositional genius is in the music. His tunes and chord progressions are breathtakingly original. If you hear one of his songs once, it "hooks" you, and you sing it everywhere - in the shower, in the car, on the toilet. No one writes hooks like Jeff Lynne. Mr Blue Sky is the happiest song ever written, without being cheesy. You can't help but smile. No it's not a Day in the Life rip off. Listen to it! All it has in common with DitL is the boop-boop-boop-boop chord that starts Paul's bridge. Good grief people. - Drtrekker
Jeff Lynne has composed some of the most enduring hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Mr Blue Sky, Telephone Line, Livin' Thing, Free Falling, Runnin' Down a Dream, Handle with Care, When We Was Fab, You Got it, When I Was a Boy, and so many more. Now rappers sample his ELO songs from the 70s and 80s. And he's still writing.
