Search songs by the name of the songwriter(s)

Hi

 

I was wondering if it is possible to include the songwriters name, when you search for songs?

 

As an example, I would love to have the possinility to searh for songs written by Diane Warren, who wrote hit songs like Unbreak my heart - Tony Braxton, Dont wanna miss a thing - Aerosmith,  Could I have This Kiss Forever - Enrique Iglesias feat. Whitney Houston and the list goes on an on.

 

Mostly, when I listen to a song and like the lyrics, the chances for me liking the other songs by the same songwriter i pretty big.

i would like to add to this that i want to search by the performers on the track. this data is already available on many jazz songs but it is not for rock. i want to listen to every song travis barker plays on or that dave grohl sings on.

Agreed, I very much like to explore music not only by the artist but also by songwriter.

 

For example, I like Lucie Silvas, and through Wikipedia I have found that she has also written songs for other artists like Liberty X & Haley Reinhart.  Which I then look for on Spotify to play.

 

However, it would be great if there were some way within Spotify that you could search for songs by songwriter - for example, if you have a favourite song - you could then click something to find other songs written by the same songwriter - i.e.. Max Martin has written a lot of pop songs (Britney Spears, Backstreet boys, Katy Perry) - it'd be great t get a complete list of songs that he has written/co-written/composed that are available on Spotify.
