10 Nobel-Worthy Lyricists Who Aren't Bob Dylan

Just in case Dylan never gets around to picking up his Nobel Prize for literature, here are a few possible alternate candidates.
Maybe it's a good thing social media didn't exist back in 1913, when the influential Bengali poet, musician and painter Rabindranath Tagore became the first lyricist to win the Nobel Prize for literature. Tagore might have been the subject of as lively a Twitter-storm as Bob Dylan was this past week, as his controversial Nobel Prize win expanded the definition of literature to include lyricism in a way we haven't seen since - well, 1913.
