    So many good ones sunkentreasure

    How about Lennon and McCartney, Burt Bacharach, Billy Joel, Jim Steinman, Elton John and Bernie Taupin are among my favourites.

    Hard to answer that one, there are so many. Lennon, McCartney of course. Robbie Robertson is a major influence. His lyrics have gotten me through so much in my life. Donald Fagan and Walter Becker from Steely Dan. They wrote about so many off-the-beaten-path topics. David Gilmour. The list goes on and on.

    Songwriters... hmmm.

    Kurt Cobain, Jari Maenpaa, Tuomas Holopainen (at least he used to be), whoever writes the Iron Maiden songs (Steve Harris?), the Dream Theater guys, the Amorphis guys, Eluveitie, Alice in Chains, Tony Iommi, Led Zeppelin, Chuck Schuldiner. 

    There's many more, but I don't know off the top of my head who writes the songs.
