Default Best songwriting teams?

...somewhat arbitrarily definining "team" as a pair of songwriters, as opposed to band collaborations. I just went with the few major pairs that came to mind, and kept the field somewhat in the rock/pop arena (I'm tired and added John/Taupin to fill out the poll; it might be amusing to see the results after a few weeks).

Moz and Marr, no surprises there. I think the main reason is because it shouldn't have worked but it did.

Out of the options there,... I had to go with the Lennon/McCartney. So many great songs.

If you read the first post don't think Gilmour/Waters really fits that criteria.
Sure they wrote songs together but it's not like Pink Floyd relied on them working together. They were quite capable of knocking out stuff on their own or with the rest of the band collaborating. It's not like they're like the rest of the bands listed who pretty much had 2 members writing together virtually all the material.
