I'm looking for suggestions. Below I have listed over 100 songwriters (with the artists that performed their songs in parenthesis). In my list here, I'm not including songwriters that have already been inducted like Lennon, McCartney, Dylan, Springsteen, Sting, Clapton, Queen, Little Richard, Dolly Parton, Ray Charles (who got a lifetime Achievement award) or Billy Joel, etc. I only want to bring attention to the ones that are being overlooked.

Star Rating Scale: 1 = Not deserving / 2 = I don't think so / 3 = After others are in / 4 = Let 'em in / 5 = Should already be in
