    Lennon and McCartney wrote very few songs together, especially after 1964/65. I wouldn't count them as a duo unless you mean their very early stuff.

    Jagger/Richards is one (even though I'm not much of a fan)
    Lifeson/Lee/Peart (though that's three)
    Who did Garcia write with? A lyricist whose name I can't remember.

    That would be Robert Hunter.

    The guys from Squeeze are good, but their catalog is too thin.

    A better way to phrase the original question would have been:

    "Not counting Lennon/McCartney, who are your top two songwriting duos?"

    My answer would be:

    Page/Plant

    and

    I don't know.



    Some of my favorite solo writers:

    Jason Mraz
    John Denver
