Home Music Lil Nas X Getting Songwriting Award Named for Hal David, Writer of...

This is really beyond belief.

Lil Nas X is going to get the Hal David Starlight Award for writing songs from the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Hal wrote the lyrics to almost all of the Burt Bacharach songs like “I Say A Little Prayer,” “What the World Needs Now Is Love,” “Walk on By,” “One Less Bell to Answer,” “Close to You.” “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head,” “A House is Not a Home,” and so on. Hal was a genius, a remarkable writer.

Lil Nas X, popular right now, wrote “Old Country Road,” “Montero,” and “Industry Baby.”

The Songwriters Hall of Fame should be ashamed of itself. It’s bad enough that Mariah Carey is getting an award as a songwriter on June 16th after her dozens of plagiarism settlements and complaints. But this is really the low point. There are so many great, real songwriters out there who have received no recognition from the Hall of Fame. How can anyone take this group seriously?

Lil Nas X, aka Montero Hill, is a hit singer right now, and his videos are certainly original. But his songwriting skills are lacking in so many ways, especially the lyrics,

You decide:

Hal wrote:

Lord, we don’t need another meadow
There are cornfields and wheatfields enough to grow
There are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine
Oh listen, Lord, if you want to know

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No, not just for some, oh, but just for every, every, everyone

Lil Nas X wrote:

Uh, need to, uh
Need to get this album done
Need a couple number ones
Need a plaque on every song
Need me like one with Nicki now
Tell a rap nigga, “I don’t see ya”, ha
I’m a pop nigga like Bieber, ha
I don’t fuck bitches, I’m queer, ha
But these niggas bitches like Madea
Yeah, yeah, yeah (yeah)
Ayy, oh, let’s do it
I ain’t fall off, I just ain’t release my new shit
I blew up now everybody tryna sue me
You call me Nas, but the hood call me Doobie, yeah
