I'm sure there has been a thread like this before but uhh I don't care

Songwriters I especially like are:
Rivers Cuomo (sure, he hasn't really did anything decent in awhile but Blue Album and Pinkerton are songwriting gold!)

Elliott Smith (obvious choice, but he was one of a kind, very beautiful songs)

John Frusciante (not his RHCP stuff, but his solo stuff is some of the most unique songwriting I've ever heard)

give me some of your choicessssss

edit* I'm confused are we talking about artist who do singer/songwriter stuff or about the guys who write songs for the groups they play in?

ok Derek, i'm really sorry for being a twat/cunt/dick, but how in hell can you say you're from "Scotland and write such grammatical abomination as "He hasn't really DID..."!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't give a flying fuck usually, but it just is strange to be Scottish and write like you're huh Italian (sorry Nic) or Polish (oops sorry mil) or French (doh sorry SYRfox).


anyways my fave songwriters would probably be.
- Thurston
- Black Francis
- SM
- Lou Barlow

and countless others but these 4 really inspired me a greatdeal when i started out writing stuff, and they still do in spite of all the NEW music i swallow daily.
