Donnie Vie, Jacob Bunton, Billy Peiffer
Steely Dan (both guys)
His tune...Emmylou....Rodney....and Albert. Hot Band? Hell yeah.
Beside all of the greats of Tin Pan Alley (Berlin, Porter, Harold Arlen, the Gershwins, Heyman/Green,
Johnny Mercer, Henry Mancini, et al) there are a few contemporary songwriters i do really like:
Walter Becker/Donald Fagen and Elvis Costello come to mind immediately.
Stevie Wonder, definitely...so many classics. Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan... David Bowie...
Marvin Gaye... Antonio Carlos Jobim... just off the top of my head.
Those are the traditional songwriters; then there are the guys like Louis Cole from Knower:
and Adam Neely of Sungazer:
My favorite songwriters are
Paul Simon& Art Garfunkel
The Glimmer twins
The Toxic twins
Hmmm how about Geezer Butler .
I’ll stop now before you all start throwing tomatoes at me ...
All great... glad to see Jobim mentioned!
Yep - Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong! If you loved post-Holland-Dozier-Holland era Motown, you loved a lot of their songs.
I didn't see them mentioned, but I'd like to give a nod to Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. These guys wrote a lot of catchy tunes.
And while I'm at it, another nod to another favorite of mine, Mike Oldfield.
Incidentally, Mike Oldfield did a cover version of the Benny Andersson instrumental "Arrival", a rare case I think of Oldfield doing a cover. A friend and fellow fan of Oldfield claimed "Arrival" was an Oldfield composition-- "No way would Mike Oldfield cover an ABBA song!". I maintained it was an ABBA/Anderson song and wagered $5 on my claim. He lost. And he welshed on that bet.
