I'm such a big fan of Ryan Tedder, both as an artist and a songwriter. Lots of folks may not realize how many hit songs he has written for OTHER singers and groups. Here's a short list:

  • "Already Gone" - Kelly Clarkson
  • "Bleeding Love" - Leona Lewis
  • "Brighter Than the Sun" - Colbie Caillat
  • "Burn" - Ellie Goulding
  • "Halo" - Beyonce
  • "Love Somebody" - Maroon 5
  • "Neon Lights" - Demi Lovato
  • "Not Over You" - Gavin Degraw
  • "Rumor Has It" - Adele
