The Contenders: Page 2
One of the most underrated singer songwriters of all time despite the fact shes one of the most successful, infact only Paul McCartey, John Lennon and Max Martin have written more number one hits in America than her. Even worldwide, shes the best selling female singer-songwriter with over 200 million albums sold.
She's mostly just seen as a big voiced diva rivalling the likes of Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, which is probably the reason most people don't see her as a writer. She has saod that most don't recognise her as a writer because they are unable to look past the 'diva' stage persona and the fact she rarely plays any instruments on stage. However, she can play piano and has sole producer credit on many of her piano only tracks and co producer credit on the majority of her discography (and it should be noted that these are warrented, unlike the credits of other female singers such as Madonna and Beyoncè).
Mariah has won many awards for her songwriting ability ...more
Excellent songwriter who left us in 1999. Honest, real, deep, textured and intelligent. So So very underrated. Front man for The Sound in the 80's and his 90's solo material is just excellent. Miss Adrian's musical but his music with live with me forever.
Wrote "Vehicle" for the Ides of March as well as numerous songs with Suvrivor and several for 38 Special as well as Sammy Hagar
