Songwriters

From the days of chants and plainsong then Debussy, Mozart, Bach to John Lennon and more recently Marc Anthony, the story of songwriting has come a long way. A songwriter is that person who writes the lyrics to songs, the musical piece or melody to songs, or both. Songwriters may also perform the songs they write themselves, or may

even write lyrics for somebody else to perform. In the recent years, songwriters sing their own songs and are called singer-songwriters. Although the tradition of singing one's own songs dates back to the prehistoric time when men made up and sung songs. More recently, the troubadours of the Middle Ages sang their own compositions, as did the German Minnesingers.

There are a number of composers who are also singers and wrote for themselves, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Frank Loesser, Noel Coward and Steven Sondheim have performed both functions. These legends paved the way for Michael Jackson, George Michael, Marc Anthony, Elton John, Brittany Spears and many singer-songwriters. Many modern rock and roll bands have one or two lyricists, usually members of the band. In many cases, the lead singer is one of the songwriters.

There have been quite a few famous songwriting teams such as the Motown team of Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Eddie Holland (collectively known as Holland-Dozier-Holland) and the teams of John Lennon and McCartney, Leiber and Stoller, Morrissey and Johnny Marr, Elton John and Bernie Taupin, Jagger and Richards, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, The Bee Gees, George and Ira Gershwin, Guy Fletcher and Doug Flett Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway, Geoff Stephens and Tony Macaulay, Rodgers and Hart, the Jackson brothers, Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood, Ashford & Simpson, Joe Strummer and Mick Jones and Robert Plant and Jimmy Page.
