    Default Greatest Ever Songwriter

    Greatest Ever Songwriter

    This has to be a tough call so many great songwriters out there

    But I am going with Ray Davies of the Kinks



    This guy has his base on the streets and in public places, he has a near genius ability to get what he sees mixed into some of the greatest rock songs ever written…

    Here is a taster, the mesmerizing Waterloo Sunset

    Dirty old river, must you keep rolling
    Flowing into the night
    People so busy, makes me feel dizzy
    Taxi light shines so bright
    But I don't need no friends
    As long as I gaze on waterloo sunset
    I am in paradise

    Every day I look at the world from my window
    But chilly, chilly is the evening time
    Waterloo sunsets fine

    And more…

    Just to show you how normal Ray Davies is – clip – from a recent interview

    Who do you call to have fun?
    My local cab service because for some reason they don’t let their cab drivers use sat nav and most of them do not come from London, therefore I’m in for a very interesting journey that is often entertaining, if a little time consuming — and expensive.

    Love the way he looks at life and makes it so fulfilling and enjoyable…

    Im a big fan of Ray Davies myself. One of the first albums I bought as a kid was compilation called Spotlight on the Kinks(no that wasnt in the 60s!)

    I could reel off a list of great songwriters Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen,Paul Weller,Jonathan Richman,Neil Hannon,Tom Petty But when it comes to the best its kind of hard to touch Bob Dylan.

    I am loving these "Best" and Greatest" threads. My personal favorite is Jim Morrison for his Charismatic style and lyrics. He's legend in my eyes irrespective of what others think of him.

    Elvis Costello has written some of the most sardonic lyrics ever but Ray Davies and Dylan are both immortal! Lennon/McCartney, Fagen/Becker plus Townshend, David Byrne, Trent Reznor, Beck, Paul Simon, Bob Marley, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Wonder should all be in the discussion as well.

    Please don't make me choose!

    I'll go with Kate Bush and Carole King. Couple of songs of Carole King are exceptional, but it's sad that female songwriters are easily outclassed by their male counterparts.

    And Duffers you will rate this girl too…

    Amy Winehouse

    Hell this girl could write and man what a voice!

    Rehab


    Arguably the best female singer songwriter of the modern era…

    Oozing with so much talent that in time history will rank her as an all time great…

    She was a good singer. I recently came across an article wherein her mother blamed Amy's boyfriend for her death. It's sad that people like Amy despite having all the world's wealth and talent resort to drugs.
