Coming up with lyrics is the hardest part of writing for me, the music, melody, and arrangement are never the problem, it's always coming up with good lyrics. So I was considering who my favorite lyricists were, those who have been consistent from their first album. So come up with your 3 favorites, I'm interested in some other opinions and will hopefully discover someone I never heard. By the way mine are: Tom Waits, Roger Waters, and Gord Downie. And trust me not having Townshend, Cohen, or Lennon in my top 3 isn't easy, and beside I'm sure they'll be mentioned by someone else.
