No.

He's not off-key, he just has an unconventional voice. Mostly I think his songs are so beautiful that I don't care how they are sung - mainly the non-film songs, but he's written some fine songs for films as well, like That'll Do, When She Loved Me, One More Hour, Good News and others.

> He should stick to simply composing scores.

He IS very good at them! But I'm never less-than-impressed by his songs.
