I see I'm definitely not the first, but absolutely Carole King! One of the greatest pop song writer/composers of all time, and with the eventual release of her performing her own material (urged and facilitated by James Taylor), certainly fits the Singer/Songwriter mold.

Too funny.... I'm at # 14 on your list, and these are so far all the first songs I wanted to learn in 1988 when I got my first guitar! Also mostly very big campfire hits in the 80's (maybe still?). I'm going to endeavor to complete the list using those themes..... before watching the rest...

Lots of great songs in the video. But 'singer songwriter' is someone who writes all the words/music and does all the singing. I'd replace half the songs on this video with songs by Van Morrison, John Fogerty, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, John Lennon, Richard Thompson, Bruce Cockburn, Loudon Wainwright and Dan Fogelberg.

Questions... I realize this is an impossible list to stick to, but where's Billy Joel??? Neil Sedaka??? Carol King??? Also, why didn't Rick say that "Send in the Clowns" was written by Sondheim? Was there a legal reason why he wasn't permitted to say his name? Also, any one of Joni's other songs should have replaced "Clowns" (IMO). Also, I often feel that Dolly Parton is overlooked as a great singer-songwriter! EDIT: After some discussion today about this list, I returned to say that I do realize this is about the SONG and not the songwriter, alone. More specifically, I guess this is a list of Rick's favorite songs from, not only this genre, but also from this ERA. Obviously, my list would be different (with about a 60% overlap). I removed Lionel Richie from my original comment, because "Easy" (though, one of his greatest songs) was a Commodores' record, so... not in the same genre. But come on, "Piano Man" should have been on here, instead of Sondheim's "Clowns"! And I guess "Laughter in the Rain" by Sedaka will just have to go on a Part 2 list.

"OF ALL TIME"??? You need to qualify that because these are all rock pop tunes. Duke Ellington wrote rings around all of them.

While taking nothing away from Joanie Mitchell, as a songwriter, there *are* other female song writers who could have been included. Was Joanie included so you didn't seem to be misogynistic? You also seemed to forget many male writers, possibly because they aren't in the pop/rock genres any longer, or they are only in the Country genre. Your title is very misleading.

Dash Crofts of Seals & Crofts told me that George Martin was all set to produce an album with them (the first band since the Beatles)and they turned around and suddenly he's producing America! He said, " And that was before 'Sister Golden Hair' and we were bigger than America!" I said, "But were you bigger than Jesus?".

Elton John never wrote any lyrics.And I understand the purely 60's & 70's outlook so where is Carole King, Warren Zevon, David Bowie, Marvin Gaye, Lou Reed, Tom Waits, Dolly Parton , Leonard Cohen, Van Morrison, Emmy Lou Harris,Curtis Mayfield , John Prine , Donovan, George Harrison, Randy Newman, John Fogerty ,Jimi Hendrix ,Waylon Jennings, Tom T Hall, Bob Marley, Stephen Stills...

i would add carole king, john prine, donovan, van morrison and ray charles. What constitutes a sing/songwriter? can we throw lennon up there? stevie wonder? smokey robinson? cobain? Bill Withers? Is the criteria that they couldnt have been in a band? I mean america was on there and so was bread but not any of the beatles so i have some questions.

Wasn't paul McCartney a singer/songwriter? What about John Lennon? What about some more modern writers? I guess Hall and Oats were past your time, let alone Chris Martin. You probably never heard of him or his group Coldplay. They're a stadium band that has sell millions of records today. Check out Adventure of a Lifetime. Btw, Both Sides Now was the first song I ever bought. This video is seriously mislabelled. It should be ok song writers from before the 80s.

Hmm with respect Rick this is a disappointing video for many reasons. First of all your singer, he makes everything sound like Pearl Jam ewwwww. Then the list is almost only American songs which wouldn't be an issue if the ommisions weren't so meaningful. Where is Harrisson? or any other Beatle actually? And how about Leonard Cohen? Tom Waits, nick Drake, All Stewart, Tim Buckley, and frickin Jeff while we're at it... Hats off to the great Roy Harper? Bro!!!!! David heckin Bowie?? Donovan!!! VAN frickin MORRISON!!? Geddy Lee said the best songwriter of all times is Pete Townsend, his demos are masterpieces in song. And lastly; Neil Young at the back of the bus? Your all American list simply sucks, super sorry to say... Again with al respect cause You're the man

Hard to argue with this list. Personally, I am a big fan of Dan Fogelberg. Not sure who I would remove from your list to create a spot for Dan, but I would like to think he would be on your Top 25 list. That guy who is singing in this video is really good.

I may often have minor quibbles with Rick's lists, and let's be honest, that's to be expected. While I'm not up on all the technicalities of who wrote what, and with or without whom, but I feel like Billy Joel and Carole King are pretty big misses here. Could also include Springsteen in the conversation too I suppose. Also "all time" is highly misleading. Nothing the slightest bit recent here. People like John Mayer or Taylor Swift are part of that more contemporary conversation.

Great list. It’s hard to pick a favorite from guys like Dylan , Simon and Garfunkel , Chapin and so on. I would have opted for Taxi (Chapin) “Baby Blue” ( Dylan ) and Bridge ( S&G) and so on . Would have been nice to see Cohens “Alleluia”. But you can’t list them all in 20 songs. BUT my all time favorite is by an unknown but yet it still beats most of these( if not all) on the top 500 songs ever. I was with Tony Sansone when he wrote it ( well sat with him while he wanted my opinion on some lyrics) At 220 best song ever written Walk Away Renee and there really was no “Renee”. The song is about Hull Avenue in the Bronx. And the only contribution that the Left Banke made to the composition is the name “Renee”. Tony wrote the whole song. Still in touch after more than 55 years. He also contributed to their next song “Pretty Ballerina” which no one here probably ever heard ( but definitely worth a listen ) Wonderful video!!
