Top 5 favorite songwriting duo thread

Who are your fav teams of two? This could be ridiculously easy for some, I realize. In order, preferrably.

Mine:

1. Page/Plant
2. Lennon/McCartney
3. Jones/Strummer
4. Marr/Morrissey
5. Tie between Cale/Reed & Bowie/Pop

Flansburgh/Linnell (TMBG)

Can't disagree with all of those posted already, but there's one glaring omission:

Tufnel/St. Hubbins

Ha ha - classic!

My fave Tap lyric!

"My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo
I'd like to sink her with my pink torpedo"

Will second Difford/Tilbrook
Concur with the obvious Morrissey/marr and Lennon McCartney
and throw in Tennant/Lowe (Pet Shop boys) and Clarke/Bell (Erasure).
