Alan Cumming. He doesn't really write lyrics... but I guess my favorite lyric from his CD is, "I once said that I'm not an alcoholic, there's just always something to be celebrated," not because I identify or anything. I just like the way it sounds. It makes me pay attention to the song.

Bowling For Soup. I liked them from Girl All the Bad GUys Want, loved 1985, was in love with Ohio (Come Back To Texas), and then was sucked into their web of awesome forever with Trucker Hat.

"Weird Al" Yankovic. Frankly, I don't like his direct parodies very much. His stylistic parodies are fine, but the others are not so interesting.

Stephen Sondheim. Well, he's been writing musicals lyrics since sometime in the 40s, and I didn't get into any of his stuff until I was 15 or so, so... that's about 60 years.

Relient K. Not particularly. Although Mood Rings does remind me of some unfortunate characters.

James Marsters. Two. Three if you count the Once More With Feeling soundtrack.
