This is one great list. Not to be picky but I'd love it if the year(s) or release for each song were included, plus which album(s) they came out on. Even without that, the list shows what a fantastic songwriter John was.

Chris,

I would not have "Go Now" put in the John Phillips song list. While he clearly made his mark on the song as recorded by the 1981 version of the M&P (John, Denny, Spanky, and Mac). There is plenty of info here:

http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=4133

"Before The Moody Blues recorded it, this was an obscure Soul single for Bessie Banks, who released it in 1964. Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller produced her recording, and it was written by her husband Larry Banks."

Thanks for the outstanding list. I am not sure John co-wrote either “Richman” or “Poor Widow” by Jamme

"Poor Widow" is credited to Don Adey and "Richman" is credited to Don Adey/T. Smyser.
