Greatest Song Writers
The Contenders: Page 6
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

FOB is best known for their lyrical creativity (especially in Folie À Deux)
And their band leader is no other than Pete Wentz.
It's astonishing how Pete isn't in at least the top 50. Now I am highly biased on this because I love Fall Out Boy, and to people who do not like this guy as much as I do it may be hard to completely understand what I mean.
This guy is a lyrical genius in his own way. There's this way that he just writes that just gets you mesmerized and stuck with what he wants to say - that is if you understand what Patrick sings. If you want to listen to a lyrically beautiful album, I would recommend Folie À Deux. It's to date their best album lyrically, clearly beating From Under The Cork Tree, which a lot of people call their best album.
"I got troubled thoughts, and the self-esteem to match", is a line in one of the greatest songs [What a Catch, Donnie] from Folie À Deux. Then there's 7 Minutes In Heaven (Atavan Halen) which is about Pete's suicide attempt, yet another one of his greatest lyrical works. Infinity On High, is would I personally would call their album about love. A ...more - Juicepaketet
Please just listen to "A little piece of heaven". The Rev wrote that masterpiece, along with many other great A7X tracks! RIP - Graham
Look at paranoid android that is all
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
Amazing lyricist. Just listen to the trees, freewill, the spirit of radio, and 2112
The Trees, Subdivisions, Witch Hunt...
Folky Beck and his lyrics... Good one.
