It's all about the words man...

"The List"  on Wednesday night was a master class in lyrical composition.  Poetry wrapped inside drums, guitars, keyboards and a need to be expressive on a legendary scale.  My choice for the 7 greatest lyricists of our lives;

  • Paul Simon

  • Bruce Springsteen

  • Elvis Costello

  • Joni Mitchell

  • Bono

  • Neil Young

  • Bob Dylan (The true Master)

Keep in mind "The List" is only 7 songs each night and there are certainly others who are deserving of inclusion.  My un-bumpables are Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon.  Bring it on!  Thursday Night on "The List"...Elton and Billy.  Find out what Elton John's favorite Elton John song is.  What did Billy Joel say backstage at his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?  I was there and I have the audio.  Also, and most of all, listen to win tickets to their Face to Face tour November 22nd at Pepsi Center.  See you tomorrow...
