David Crosby said that you can ask Joni Mitchell to write a song about a stop sign and 2 hours later she'd bring you the best song you'd ever heard. But this is my list:

1. Duke Ellington
2. The Gershwins
3. Rogers and Hart, Rogers and Hammerstein
4. Hoagy Carmichael
5. Cole Porter
6. Harold Arlen
7. Lennon McCartney
8. Joni Mitchell
9.  Townes Van Zandt
10. Guy Clark
11. Neil Young
12. Bob Wills

Don van Vliet, aka Captain Beefheart, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle, Ian Anderson, Joni Mitchell, and a bunch of people local to SE Michigan that make me happy to live here.

After learning of Burt Bacharach's passing, I thought back to exactly how many memorable tunes he had written... hit after hit after hit.  And more impressive, they still hold up today
Walk on by, Burt.
