Songwriters


Soul Salad

Recommended Posts

After having a good look at Rolling Stones 100 all time songwriters. Interesting reading and "fairly" spot on (Ish) i thought, of course Lennon/McCartney were number one (most would agree?).

Included are M Gaye, C Mayfield, N Whitfield/B Strong Holland Dozier Holland, JB I Hayes amongst a few others.

But.................................................................Missed out Van McCoy? and Ashford and Simpson? (How?)

I couldn't think of any others that stick off the top of my head except the above so any other great songwriters you feel should have been in their top 100?

Just for fun 🥳 or :tumbleweed3:

PS Of course their top100 songwriter list must be based on chart success

Gosh of course M Terry, J Ragavoy T Bell etc - yep maybe a top 10 Soul songwriters of all time, that'll be a different post though. Anyone?
