Wednesday Question: Best Non-Rock/Metal Songwriter
Following a series of rock and metal-related discussions, we decided to take a little break from the heavy stuff and focus on the distortion-lacking domain.

Specifically, we'd like to talk exquisite songwriters not belonging to the mentioned niche. To make it official, this week's Wednesday Question is:

Who is the best non-rock/metal songwriter?

A slight element of rock can still be present, but the songwriter must not be considered a rocker. There's quality music outside of the rock realm, so there's still plenty to choose from here.

Same rules as always apply - only one suggestion per comment, vote up the ideas you support and vote down the ones you dislike. We'll sum up your votes by Friday and bring you another traditional UG Top 10. Time to show what you got, UG!
