5.John Lennon. (The Beatles his solo stuff was good)

I think you are all forgetting Nick Cave and Tom Waits! Manu Chao is one of the greatest songwriters ever aswell, along with Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly and all the others that have already been mentioned. Well, all the others, excluding the Oasis brothers, Chris Martin and John Lennon.
Almost forgot Christy Moore, Ewan MacColl and Davie Wiseman.
