    His 1990 hits When A Heart Breaks and Saved By Love was a different change in sound to that of Triumph, but it worked and they became just wonderful songs
    So I guess you're a fan of Canadian Music then??? . I'll hold my hand up and say I never heard of him!!!!

    Re: Probably the TOUGHEST poll to choose from!

    I will still stand by my vote of Lennon & McCartney! The reason being is that so many of their songs have stood the test of time, a good example is Yesterday is the most covered song in rock history.

    This was a hard one cause some are totally different genre's.
    I picked Elton/ Bennie because they stepped into different genre's and the music is timeless IMO..

    A couple that may have been overlooked ('other'), who have written for many artists:

    Desmond Child who has collabarated with just about every big Rock/Metal band!
    i.e Bon Jovi
    Aerosmith
    Kiss
    Ratt
    Cinderella etc etc

    Jim Steinman..
    Meatloaf
    Bonnie Tyler
    Sisters of Mercy
    Boyzone (cough, cough)

    That one was tough! Almost induced a cranial cramp but in the end I limited myself to the options given and even then couldn't choose between Paul McCartney/John Lennon & Elton John/Bernie Taupin with honourable mention to the others posted.
