Lennon And McCartney Top Songwriters Poll


John Lennon and Paul McCartney have topped MusicRadar's poll of the 56 greatest songsmiths of all time. According to the site, the list was determined by the users of the site in a poll.

"The remarkable thing isn't how well their songs have aged - it's that they haven't aged at all. Born of collaboration and ending as competition, their catalogue is the indisputable and indispensable songbook of the modern era; a staggering collection of compositions that, one by one, changed, challenged and defined the times with a beauty that still feels endless," wrote the site of the masterminds behind the Beatles' best loved hits.

Bob Dylan came in at number two on the list, while Queen held down the three spot. Neil Young and Kurt Cobain rounded out the top five, respectively.
