Default George Michael nominated in 2017 Songwriters Hall of Fame

Something positive about GM and hopefully he would be voted in.

Good news indeed! He's up against Madonna this year though. I'm sure he'll eventually win, but they might give it to Madonna first. She's more visible at the moment, and has more well-known, recent material out than he does.

but then, in a way, he 'needs' more the attention and recognition at the moment, right?

She only cowrites some of her lyrics... On some of her songs. She doesn't write music. I'd imagine it's much easier to keep putting out albums that way. And IMO doesn't make her much of a 'songwriter'. Not compared to people who write everything themselves.

I'd hope they would take quality over quantity, and consider how much actual 'writing' the person puts into a song into account.

you are very incorrect here. she writes most of her lyrics and always has. she also has written some of her music and has done that for years now too.
over 120 written songs which most are quality pop music. no matter if a person personally likes them or not certainly deserves a win in something like a songwriters hall of fame.

I was going off of things I've heard off and on in the past and having recently read this article which is clearly not anti Madonna -

http://www.showbiz411.com/2013/10/11...-were-composed

Maybe these people don't know about more recent music if she has done that.

Whether anyone 'deserves' to win, or be nominated for something like this is obviously a matter of opinion.

I'm not here to argue.
