Just curious, as our tastes change...
Stephen Stills for starters...........have to think about the rest
Oh crap, I'm a folkie!!??
You nailed #1 on my list...
I cheated by giving Lennon/McCartney and Garcia/Hunter one spot each. Paul Simon probably deserves a spot on the list too.
Do I really have to stop at 5? I'm not sure I could pick 5 out of my favorite 25. This is a "first to pop into my noggin" list of my favorites.
I think I need to add:
- John Prine
- Leonard Cohen
- Tom Petty
- David Bowie
I'll mention some that haven't already been listed.
Oh Yeah. And Jagger/Richards.
Same here, 5 who haven't been mentioned already:
Great to see Willie Nelson and Joni Mitchell on your lists. How about Van Morrison?
It would probably be a whole lot easier for me to come up with the 5- I don't like.
but still got to reserve a spot for The Beatles and the Stones. I got to say Beatles because George Harrison wrote 2 or 3 of my favorite songs.
This just goes to show why this kind of thread is just an argument starter on Facebook.
I'd post a vomit emoji on some of the selections on these lists.
Who are you guys??? I see no love for the two greatest groups ever. 1910 Fruitgum Co. and the Archies...
Yummy, Yummy, Yummy I got Sugar, ah Honey, Honey!
I don't believe anyone in either group (assuming you can actually find out who was really in those groups) has a writing credit. There were some very talented session musicians who made those recordings, but I doubt any of them had more than a day's work recording the tracks.

I just looked up the definition of "a song", and it told me it has to have words, meant to be sung. So that snuffs my #1 Miles Davis.
4. The Brothers Gibb
5. Brian Wilson
I just realised that they're all British except Miles and Brian. (yeah, I'm an Aussie and I know a lot of my country-persons are going to claim the Gibbs, but we all know they grew up here but were initially and ultimately English).
What, no Barry Manilow?! He wrote the songs that made the whole world sing.
