Good topic Siamak. I can't really make a fair comment on which period of productions i prefer as i have only seriously followed post-revolution music. May i suggest perhaps adding one of my personal faves Babak Radmanesh ? :)

Mr B Radmanesh is another Master of Iranian music . He's a big man and honestly i don't know many ppl like him . His songs for R Moein are excelent and i like it .

 

I put the option 'other' and you can vote it and tell us why you prefer him so much.

 

Thank you for your atention amigo :) .

Many of these folks you have listed in your poll are not songwriters, a lyricist is not to be considered a songwriter! A songwriter is one who writes the music (Creates melodies of a song), A lyricist is one who writes the words (Tarane sara). Zoya, Jannati Ataei, Shariar Ghanbari and... are Lyricist, while Farid Zoland, Nojooki and... are songwriters. However we have people like Shamaeizadeh who once in a while tries writing some of his own lyrics which often turn out to be flop!

 

Just a reminder!

I agree, lyricists are not songwriters, although they often claim to be!!!

 

Over the last decade my personal faves have been Kamran Delan and Babak Radmanesh. KD for his eclecticism and Babak Radmanesh, whom is one of those songwriters that has forged almost his own sub-genre within the industry with his signature tracks (even though he has perhaps lacked evolution in his sound more recently). His trademark is obvious without even reading the credits.

 

I'm also fond of some of Elton Farrokhe Ahis songs, particularly for Andy.

In terms of construction of vocal melodies, my vote goes to:

 

Babak Afshar

 

From a musician perspective I can tell that he is really in control. It looks like he can take the melody in the direction that he wants and come up with a correct composition. Ghomayshi also can write properly.

 

Some of the other writers wrote nice melodies, but I feel that some of it was "by ear". Meaning they just dotched down what they were humming to themselves and thats why the material might not be as original. I think Varoojan as great as he was worked that way when writing music and not arrangements. Same goes with Jahanbakhsh Pazooki.
