Your Top 5 Songwriters Of All Time (And Their Best Song)
Posted 10 April 2012 - 02:59 PM
5. Ric Ocasek (The Cars)
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame basically inducts anyone and their mother...hell Madonna, queen of pop music is in it. Now, I'm not saying she is undeserving, but how in the #$%! are The Cars not? Ben Orr and Ric Ocasek were incredible together, and they have so many hits to their name:
4. Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull)
A weird guy/a great flutist/and a great songwriter. Another band somehow not in the Hall, I think he should be here for his uniqueness.
3. Jeff Lynne (Electric Light Orchestra)
ELO is pretty underrated IMO. Yeah, they aren't unnoticed, but they aren't as fondly remembered as they should be. Lynne went on to help form the superband The Traveling Wilburys.
2. David Bowie
He is probably in most top-10's, but I couldn't leave him out. Most influential on my list.
1. Roger Waters/David Gilmour/Syd Barrett/Nick Mason/Richard Wright (Pink Floyd)
Never been more drawn to any other band for their lyrics than Pink Floyd.
What are your picks?
