Care to participate in a lame battle of the songwriters?

If you're bored...

so :

Kurt Cobain vs Martin L Gore

David Bowie vs Elton John

PJ Harvey vs Patti Smith

Amy Winehouse vs Lady Gaga

Peter Murphy vs Robert Smith

Lou Reed vs Tom Waits

Jarvis Cocker vs Damon Albarn

Mark Everett vs Trent Reznor

Vini Reilly vs Mark E Smith

that's about it

BQ : Your opinion on Depeche Mode's album Ultra?

BQ2 : Song of the day?

Update:

Vini is from the Durutti Column and Mark E Smith from The Fall

thought I'd throw in some post-punk songwriters in there too.

    lol Trent probably, but Mark Everett is has more enjoyable lyrics.

    dont know either of them

    BQ: It was okay, I don't really even like Depeche Mode that much, but I liked Songs of Faith and Devotion much better than Ultra. the band had a better 90's era than 80's.
