Conor Oberest would have to be my favorite. He is able to write the maj of his songs about personal **** that only makes sense to him, but he is still able to make it connect with his fans. He's a brillant poet.

Nice choice with Gabriel, his lyrics on Selling England have a great whimsical quality to them.
