    Default ?- Single Best Contemporary Song Writer -?

    In your opinion is who?



    I would choose David J.
    I picked him for the variety of styles he writes. The lyrics and compositions. Also, He has TONS of really good songs.

    Yes! you rock rockwulf. I was actually just listening to that album the other day.

    Yeah, I really don't know quit how to define this, to me a song writer sounds like someone that writes and performs all their own songs, sort of like bob dylan and James taylor or yesteryear. usually I think of an acoustic musician because it's kind of hard for one person to play on their own in any other style, even with accompaniment. I guess sort of the modern day type would be trent reznor. I suppose I have some respect for him, but I'm not really into his music and I wouldn't have him the greatest.

    My list would have to include:
    Elliot Smith
    Conor Oberst
    Mike Park
    Chris "Sandman" Sands

    and my favorite would have to be Jeff Ott, although he stopped touring and making cds because he doesn't want to use petroleum products, which is also why I have the most respect for him.

    I would say contemporary is someone who is still alive & performing.

    nobody shoot me, but Dani Filth (i'm a sucker for complex language)

    in a close second, i absolutely delight in the overly optimistic and fantasy-laden lyrics of both Hansi Kirsch (blind guardian) and Matt Barlow (iced earth)
