My second nomination missed the list (don't worry about it, I've done it more times than I can count), but that was mainly my fault, as it was sort of hidden. I'd like to give them their due though - Ashford & Simpson.

Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson were a husband and wife songwriting/production team and recording artists. Married in 1974, until Ashford's death in 2011. Best known for writing and producing some of Motown's biggest hits, they are also responsible for a rock & roll mainstay that will surprise you - Some of their hits:

Ain't No Mountain High Enough

You're All I Need To Get By

Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing

Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)

I'm Every Woman

I'm Gonna Make You Love Me

I Don't Need No Doctor (Very un-Motownish, it has oddly been recorded by a wide variety of artists including Ray Charles, Humble Pie, The Chocolate Watch Band, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Styx, W.A.S.P. , and Nomads)

The duo was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002.

Crap! Sorry about that.

I added them to the list.

And there's still plenty of time if anyone wants to make a change to their votes!!

If you can't edit your post, just let me know you want to make the change and I'll get it done for you. :)

Interesting mix. The top couple garnered 41 more votes than the 10th place, and 59 more than the lowest-scoring, where the three rounding out the bottom of the list are only 1 point away from each other.

The Songfactors' Choice Top Ten Musical Power Couples

1. Buckingham, Lindsey / Nicks, Stevie 61

2. Goffin, Gerry / King, Carole 57

3. Cash, Johnny / Carter Cash, June 55

4. McCartney, Paul / McCartney, Linda 46

5. Kantner, Paul / Slick, Grace 36

6. Taylor, James / Simon, Carly 36

7. Springsteen, Bruce / Scialfa, Patti 26

8. White, Jack / White, Meg 22

9. Sonny / Cher 21

10. Bryant, Boudleaux / Bryant, Felice 20

#6 and 7, Kantner/Slick and Springsteen/Scialfa, are a tie, but Kantner/Slick got more votes (more people voted for them) so they win by a nudge. (at least I hope that's how it's done... it is in this Top Ten!) :grin:

If that's the case, then Deborah Harry / Chris Stein would've won the tie-breaker at #10, they received 4 votes, while the Bryants got 3.

You are so right! :doh: Thanks for finding that. :)

Anyone that wants to double check these figures, feel free. It's been a very, very busy time for me and I wouldn't be surprised if someone finds something (else) that needs fixin'... :crazy:
