Best songwriter ever

Postby Grokazahn В» 28.03.2020

.

There's something about the singer-songwriter, the self-contained musical artist whose compositions succeed largely on the strength of his or her imagination.

When determining our top 20, we considered both solo artists, and singers who were the primary songwriters for their bands. Gordon Lightfoot There are two kinds of people in this world: Gordon Lightfoot evangelists and people who've never actually bothered to listen to him. Quit the ironic snickering and head down to the local dollar bin — ten bucks will grab you most of his catalog.

Dolly Parton All through the '80s, Dolly Parton was a boob joke. And, Jack White? Elliott Smith Good Will Hunting. American Beauty. The Royal Tenenbaums. Each film has at least one character struggling with depression. So it's probably no coincidence that each soundtrack features hauntingly beautiful music from the late Elliott Smith. An ever-evolving musician — compare the instrumentation on Roman Candle and Figure 8 — he was also capable of conveying gut-wrenching emotion without sounding disingenuous.

His soft, plaintive voice and harrowing lyrics are perfect for whenever sorrow looms. Hank Williams With apologies to Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams is country music, and not just because handlers followed him everywhere, keeping his drug addiction under wraps.

His slim corpus represents some of the finest songwriting ever, genre be damned. Though mainstream country threw him under the bus, Hank continues to inspire today's traditionalists such as Whitey Morgan, Sturgill Simpson and Lydia Loveless. Hank taught us it takes a world of hurt to play country like it's meant to be played. All of those characters were responsible for classic material, but perhaps the most groundbreaking of Bowie's identities was his sexual one.

Openly bi-sexual, he successfully proselytized Mick Jagger into a love affair. Johnny Cash Cash was the original country outlaw. If Elvis was the flashy extrovert of the 50s, Johnny Cash was the sullen brooder. As we know, he was never stuck in Folsom Prison and he never shot poor Delia down. His later catalog holds up and his work with Rick Rubin is easily the latter's greatest contribution to music.

Sorry, Beastie Boys and Slayer. After signing to Warner Brothers at 17 and recently re-entering the fold with them , The Purple One reshaped pop music in his image, and it looks more like him with every passing decade. He remains a fountain of songs, bringing joy to all who hear him. It doesn't matter whether he's white or Irish. His imagistic lyrics are delivered with a Jocyean stream of consciousness, capable of rendering Belfast countryside celestial.

The distinctive and deliberate lyrical repetition Morrison often employs deepens the listener's understanding of the music and themselves. Willie Nelson Willie Nelson's lovable iconoclasm was born of Depression-era Texas, his parents' whiskey-fueled wanderlust, and the moral rectitude of the grandmother who raised him.

A street corner myth; a supernatural strummer; the devil's prodigy — nobody knows for certain. He first recorded in ; he died a year later at The cause, a mystery. Some say he was done repaying Satan for his talents. That's probably true. Tom Waits Before he was a raspy carnival barker, Tom Waits was a boozy barfly, a bargain bin Bukowski wielding a switchblade in a moth-eaten suit. His eclectic catalog includes Jackson Browne-style ballads, booze-soaked blues stompers and Beefheart worship.

Hauntingly sweet and sad and sexy, her album Blue may as well be implemented into modern science as an actual psychological stage, a phase that every young adult must go through or risk emotional retardation. Lou Reed Fueled by heroin and self-loathing, Lou Reed deglamorized rock 'n' roll.

With Velvet Underground, he influenced more bands than the Beatles. Then in 19 75, he released Metal Machine Music. MMM was over an hour of sharp feedback.

He was a bullshitter it was no guitar solo. But above all, Lou Reed 's words gave punk its first taste of street cred. Leonard Cohen Advice: If you show up at someone's house for a romantic hang, and they are playing a Leonard Cohen record when you arrive, consider backing away slowly. Cohen is a consummate cry-to, and you will never, ever, know how the object of your affection feels. In truth, he was a Texas son of privilege whose desperate substance abuse struck him down in what could have been his prime.

It's probably best to see his catalog as apart from himself, as it's often hard to see him in it, the way it's so easy with lesser artists. Regardless, it contains some of the most precisely-descriptive, emotionally upsetting, hilarious and heartwrenching songs put to record.

Bruce Springsteen Springsteen is somehow considered too pop, or too polished for some of the most self-hating of music fans, and indeed albums like The River and Born in the U. But why anyone would fault a guy who could write the perfect pop song, over and over — with increasingly emotional resonance — remains a mystery.

His catalog up through the '90s is basically flawless, and with each work he found new ways to tell truth. We might never know what, exactly, propels Springsteen to play evangelistic three hour plus shows around the country into his advanced age; the best guess is a deeply-buried need to please every last one of us. Though perhaps not the best way for him to live, for it we can nonetheless thank the Lord.

Neil Young Though they've tried, none of the derivative songwriters troubadour-ing their way through his wake can capture the tousled genius of Neil Young.

From his coke-nosed rockstar days to the wizened grey elder statesman he's become, the Canada-born Young has told the great American story with a sage's acumen. In his ongoing year career, he's tried his hand and his voice at genres ranging from techno to grunge — always managing to expound on every shade and hue in the range of human emotions. Bradley 2. Uncomfortable with his own fame, he didn't want to be the voice of his generation.

But click like her greatest statement, "Like a Prayer," can also summon an anthemic songwriter to rival Springsteen or U2. King's "Young Boy Blues," a collaboration with Phil Spector, in which every verse is effectively one long sentence.

Working most famously with the Temptations, they created "psychedelic soul," built on Ever expansively experimental production and Strong's best, socially conscious lyrics.
