    What the hell is Oasis doing in the top 10! Anyway no one has mentioned one of my fave's Elvis Costello!

    Ooooh! And Isaac Brock, king of the one-liner, too. And Nick Cave! Okay, I think I'm done, now. (Joanna Newsom, Pete Doherty, guys we haven't even mentioned John Lennon yet... sorry!)

    I'm just gonna throw Will Sheff of Okkervil River in as the great lyrical genius of this decade so far! But I agree with Neil Hannon and Mark Everett (on a good day, anyway), too. And Thom Yorke, Jarvis Cocker and Jeff Mangum all blow away the entirety of the rest of music between them. Oh! And ANY group on lyrical geniuses that doesn't have Tom Waits, THE lyrical genius, near the top is pretty broken, guys!

    Neil Hannon is "the" lyrical genius of modern times agreed. But what about Mark Everitt from Eels surely deserves a mention!?!

    Absolutely the divine comedy. But the arcade fire has to be mentioned too.
