How would you personally, rank the following artists as individuals?

You can base it on your personal preference, whether by song writing or by most popular songs or whatever. In no particular order:

Paul Simon
Phil Collins
Elton John
James Taylor
Bob Dylan
Paul McCartney
Billy Joel
John Lennon

Billy Joel and James Taylor I hate

Paul Simon has always been the epitome of the pretentious phony Dylan imitator to me. Some of his lyrics ("You with your Emily Dickinson, and I my Robert Frost") actually make me LOL. I can tolerate a few things of his ("Mrs Robinson").

Phil Collins is too meh to hate. His voice range is so limited it has to be double tracked, flanged, and otherwise modified.

I like a handful of Elton John tracks ("Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting"), but mostly meh.

Dylan, Lennon, and McCartney are awesome

Lennon/McCartney (and to a lesser extent Dylan) tower over all the others

Not bad, but I would flipflop Simon/McCartney and Collins/Taylor.

I'd group Lennon, McCartney & Dylan together as the three that stand way atop this crowd...

I'd then have the next three of Simon, John and Joel (much to most of my friends dismay)

Finally, I dont have much time for Collins and Taylor...

I understand ranking him lower for not writing his own songs but he has so many classics I don't understand how you can think he's meh
