Hey guys, i love music, i love melody, but i also love some good lyrics on a song, i don't like the rock n roll macho type songs too much, or the romantic predictable ballad from bon jovi, ok, i gotta admit i love "i'll be there for you", but that's a whole different story, because mr richie sambora made an incredible job on that one.

So my question is, because i wanna listen to more, who are your favorite lyric song writers?

i can share some of my own and i hope you google up the lyrics to see more smile.gif

All of these are genius in my opinion, in no particular order.

Alex Turner - The Arctic Monkeys




Bob Dylan anyone?




Jim Morrison - The Doors





i would love to see new ones smile.gif

I've never really been a lyrics guy (I know, I'll be burned at the stake for this) probably because the first thing that always grabbed my attention was the music, guitar sounds and atmosphere.

But I do appreciate good lyrics. I always loved the lyrics from Ozzy Osbourne's album 'The Ultimate Sin' but I was dissapopinted to learn years later that a lot of Ozzy's lyrics were written by other people, namely Bob Daisley, his bassist.

Dave Mustaine can, and has, written some excellent lyrics which have improved over the years... the best are probably from the 'Countdown to Extinction' up to the 'Risk' albums.

There are a lot of songwriters that I like. Every music genre has awesome songwriters. I could say that Dave Grohl is one of my favourite songwriters nowadays...

For Lyrics Johnny Cash has some really good ones...I like Todd Agnew also.

Iron Maiden told great stories in their albums and I liked how they weave each song together.

Not sure, it depends on the person, I always like those mystical lyrics that you can find with Hendrix, Morrison, Zep, and other bands. You just dunno what they were talking about (who knows if they knew as well back in those days biggrin.gif ), but it sounds right.

I agree. There are some exceptions. At least as far as the 90's. I don't know about now, it is pretty dry now. There are exceptions. This is nice.

Of course there are exceptions! But at that time, whatever you choose - you couldn't get wrong! Nowadays -it's a surprise when you run into a good text!
