100 Best Living Songwriters
I ran across this while reading about Lyle Lovett's new album It's Not Big, It's Large (which is probably worth looking in to!). Apparently, I'm behind the times as Paste Magazine came up with this list back in 2006, but it's interesting anyway (coincidentally, doesn't the title imply that these people are living their lives well?). I really like that it's a list of living songwriters. It gets rid of all the non-sense involved with of all time crap. You have to still be kicking it to make it on this list. I'm not going to comment on how I agree or disagree with the list, but it is fun to read about each artist and why Paste likes their lyrics. Unfortunately, I believe you can only read about #100 -81 on the website, so I've gone so far as to order the back issue paper copy. I'll let you know how it reads. Otherwise, check out the list and let me know what you think!
