Who do you love?

I started this post last summer. I forgot about it but now I have it back.

Paste created lots of controversy with this list of 100 living songwriters but I figured it was a good excuse to list some of mine. These are all I can think of off the top of my head. This list is songwriters in the sense of writing words with music. Some of them are more consistent than others but its art who can truely create the same level of consistency all the time?

In no particular order:
Bruce Hornsby
Bruce Cockburn
Alejandro Escovedo
Neil Young
Bob Dylan
Talib Kweli
Paul Thorn
Steve Earle
Kim Richey
Stevie Wonder
William Bell
Smokey Robinson
Isaac Hayes
David Porter
Ben Harper
David Olney
Lucinda Williams
Booker T Jones
Steve Cropper
Warren Haynes
