The Bee Gee's, Though most people think and remember them for a few disco songs they had much more before and after , along with writing many songs for other artists as well.

Opaww, The list is very short for those who weren't around in the 60's and 70's...I never thought of the Bee Gee's, but they were very diverse to capitalize on the Disco craze as well as their usual "soft rock" hits. I would vote for the Beatles due to their extremely varied and diverse sound over the course of a decade. There were too many artists in that era to elect just one, and all of them affected society in one way or another, unlike the sh!t that comes out today..no message, no music, and no talent!

And with that, I will add Neil Diamond. Sweet Caroline!

+1000! I forgot about Neil too...see what I mean? There were simply too many artists back then...how about the Stones "Satisfaction".

Haha. No thanks.
Actually, he is a very great songwriter.


I'm kind of surprised that J.D Souther hasn't been mentioned. He wrote the best Eagles and James Taylor songs.

Not at all. If you are alive, it's "our time". Who would you pick? I got you pegged for Joplin or Bob Segar.

I'm going to bed now. I'll probably add more when I'm clearheaded tomorrow.
That's who I picked last night. Seegar is good though. I also like Keb Mo'. Instrumentally, I like Ottmar Liebert and Bela Fleck. For collaborative efforts, I really like the Subdudes and Little Feat.

I'm from the Seattle Area and I can honestly say that the best thing that came out of Cobain's mouth was that damn shotgun. Jesus that guy sucked!!

I vote for Randy Newman & Dillon and Souther. All those guys really had serious writing chops.
