Bob Dylan, no one even comes close, in my amazing opinion. Check out Farewell Angelina if in doubt. Although admittedly if may be difficult to construe old Bob as either rock or pop.

mm, yes you may have a point, although i get really quite annoyed when the lyricist paints the picture for me.
Originally posted by FMFi public flogging, how appealing! actually i am an early Dylan fan before he became a 'Christian?' and although not an aficionado by any manner of means, when viewed in the context of the times, and perhaps even beyond, there is a depth there that i find unsurpassed. That ability to crystallise or bring to the fore some deeply hidden thought that every one feels, and place it as one would a diamond or a ruby in a gem encrusted ring for all to wonder and gaze at. I used to have the vinyl album, Live at Budokan (it may in fact still be at my moms home), which i listened to but did not really like.

Let's have a Dylan-off.
Dig out his a last few and tell me what to listen to. And I will then berate you or thank you accordingly, in public.
While I'm there I will fess up if I find something that I'd overlooked.
I will put on the headphones and really give your selections a chance. I'm open to persuasion here.

David Bowie, come to think of it.
Which I do.
