    I just want to get some ideas on who music lovers think was one of our greatest singer-songwriters. I've put some of my opinions on the poll but give me your opinions too please. :eusa_whistle:

    nice..


    The question I use to stump my music loving friends is, Which is the Greatest Musical Legend: Willie Nelson or Stevie Wonder.



    im a little disappointed to see Stevie off your poll, actually. Though, i fully agree with Willie's presence on there.

    Doc Pomus.


    Or Jimmy Buffett.

    Let me qualify Jimmy as a selection...

    First, I love his music. Second, there are more songs in his library than the average person will hear, most of them better than the songs he's known for. Third, he has built an empire (trust me, it's an empire) using the success of one song as it's foundation.
