Someone asked me an interesting question the other day at work. Who do I consider the best lyricist of all time?
I don't think I can answer the question as put to me. It's like asking what my favorite drink is. It depends on what kind of drink I want.
That said here is my brief effort to make a list (in no particular order) of some of my favorite lyricists based on my limited musical exposure:
Faithless (Colaborative lyrics, Maxi Jazz, Rollo, Sister Bliss)
That's what comes to mind right off the bat. I'll update with more if I think of them.
What do you think? Am I missing anyone obvious?
