Greatest Song Writers
The Contenders: Page 6
Possibly the most underrated songwriter of all time. Willie Nelson called him the greatest living songwriter. When you consider some of the writers that are still around, that is high praise indeed.
Top ten easily.. British top of them all. Lennon McCartney had nothing on Ray except more hits better producer.. Sheer songwriting goes to Ray.
Yes! Man, you talk about underrated! What is the genius of the Kinks doing way down here?
Ray Davies deserves to be in top ten
She writes songs that are classic and are still meaningful to people 33 years later!
Heaven Is A Place On Earth--a fantastic pop classic!
Great singer and hit songwriter for so many varied artists. Passionate and intelligent!
Ellen Shipley wrote some of the best songs in pop music
Nominated for two Grammys the songwriter had 30 top ten world wide hits!
Best song ever:
"Heaven Is APlace On Earth

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
Please just listen to "A little piece of heaven". The Rev wrote that masterpiece, along with many other great A7X tracks! RIP - Graham
All of the Moody Blues are accomplished songwriters. Justin has written extraordinarily melodic and lyrical songs.
92nd!?! Ridiculous. "Crazy", "Funny How Time Slips Away", "Blue Eyes Crying In the Rain". There will never be another Red Headed Stranger
There are 100 songwriters better than Willie? You have serious derangement syndrome.
Truly the most beautiful lyricist ever. He subtly changed the lives of his fans, he wove his life into is unusually beautiful progression of guitar chords, and even more into his lyrics that have a haunting beauty. "I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow."V 1 Comment
FOB is best known for their lyrical creativity (especially in Folie À Deux)
And their band leader is no other than Pete Wentz.
Gordon lightfoot really should be in the top ten! I mean bob Dylan was his biggest admirerV 1 Comment
