This is a classic indeed, who are yall's favorite singer songwriters? Name em and tell what your favorite album of theirs is. Mine are: Cat Stevens: Firecat and Teaser , this album is pure, simple and genius. My favorite songs on it are The Wind and Morning Has Broken. Tom Waits: RainDogs but it changes everyday. Tom is amazing and I wish I was half as cool as he is. He displays saddness like no other. Joe Strummer :Global a Go-Go, not what you'd expect from the father of punk but its great anyway. Usual political lyrics but instead of raging punk rock its more like folk/roots rock/ reggae. Joe is brilliant to me. Lou Reed: Coney Island Baby, a great album and a great artist, he was one of the first avant garde rock writers and he always wrote awesome lyrics. Van Morrison - Astral Weeks, majestic and beautiful , van is a truly gifted at love songs. Nick Cave- Murder Ballads, an evil ladiesman of sorts ..........cool as hell. Jim Croce- awesome pop songwriter , died too early and Carly Simon: Live, Go ahead and laugh, but my mom got me hooked on Simon.........im a big fan.
