Hey guys. What's your favourite song writer, ever? It doesn't necessarily mean your favourite band or artist, just the songwriter that you think has the most talent. As we know, some of the biggest hits of the century have been written by people who don't perform them (like Aerosmith's 'Don't wanna miss a thing')
Or do you steer towards artists that write their own material? (Like I seem to do)

My personal favourite is Jeff Buckley. Amazing songwriter and performer.

Urm, Ke$ha wrote most of the top ten songs of 2011 with Dr.Luke. So no I'm not taking the piss.

I'm talking about Songwriting, Not musical talent.
