John Lennon...The voice that gets to me the most...Also one of the few song-writers where I always get it, you know. A singer/songwriter that has meant a lot to me eventhough he died 5 years before I was born.

Michael Jackson...When he was little he was able to do stuff with his voice that I just can't believe.

Freddie Mercury

Bob Marley

And probably a lot more that I don't remember on the top of my head.

The harmonics within The mamas and papas are also very good.

Lol, someone I didn't think of.... not sure if it classes as singing, but Rahzell can do the most with his mouth.

Doing lyrics and laying down a beat at the same time with just his mouth, that's a skill! smile.gif

No particular order:

Andrea Corr - she sounds so sweeeeeeeet! smile.gif (The rest of them are good as backing vocalists too.)

David Gilmour - much more pleasant than Roger Waters' voice IMHO. He's got this soft sort of voice, I like it.

Loreena McKennitt - well, what can I say...

Don Henley in his earlier days, i.e. when he was with the Eagles. Thesedays, his voice sounds horrible.

Mark Knopfler - he *never* shouts and his voice is absolutely unique, just like his guitar playing.

Let me name the most horrible voice I've ever heard: Nelly Furtado, the worst kind of mainstream pop. Yuck.

Hard to choose from about 20 that I really like, but here goes a somewhat random sampling from that:

Robert Plant
Bruce Dickinson
Axl Rose
Gord Downie (The Tragically Hip)
Rod Stewart

For me I really like vocalists that have unique and/or powerful delivery over just pure vocal range/etc. When you can combine the two all the better.

1. Robert Plant (Hands Down!)
2. Dido (probably the best ambient chill out lounge voice)
3. Sir Paul McCartney
4. Thom Yorke (very disputable choice, he doesnt have a great voice, but the expression and the way he puts his words in his voice, mushed up, leaves me cold blodded most times)
5. Sade

QUOTE (Xenno @ Sep 20 2002, 15:19) *
Here's another one of those ^&%$# surveys

I needed an outlet to express my love & admiration for......

1.) Lisa Gerrard (solo & Dead Can Dance)

No one has a better voice and if they come close their material usually stinks (ie Whitney Houston). She is fantastic.

The others:
2.) Hope Sandoval (Warm Inventions & Mazzy Star)
3.) Liz Fraser (especially w/ Massive Attack)
4.) Loreena McKennitt
5.) David Byron (Uriah Heep)

Burn some bytes - who do you like?


Too many. Since you asked for only 5, this is only a random list, not in any order:

Elvis Presley
Sir Cliff Richard
Stevie Wonder
Barry Manilow
Sir Paul McCartney

Five singers, right? Here we go:

Otis Redding (no one comes close, he makes the simplest melody become an anthem)

Billie Holiday (it's almost a tie between her and Otis for the podium, she was jazz personified)

Elis Regina (this brazilian singer's pitch range is out of this world, than you add the fact she gives great interpretations too...)

Ella Fitzgerald (no comment, just listen to anything she ever recorded)

Bjork (She's not as much talented a vocalist as she's a music creator who's instrument is her voice)

I have to mention at least a couple of runner-ups:

Micheal Jackson before puberty (He was always an incredible artist, at least until the early 90s, but his vocals with the Jacksons 5 stand out, hard to believe he was just a kid)

Gal Costa in the 70s (she would later make a series of lame records, before finally becoming a standards singer that just offers the same old Tom Jobim bossa nova tunes, but in the 70s this brazilian singer was at the top of her game, making a blend of rock, samba and other stuff with amazing style)

This is a very personal thing, but OK -

In no particular order:

1) Janis Joplin - I don't know what it is about her voice but it melts me every time.
2) Carolyn Wonderland - I just discovered her, I'm instantly addicted
3) Geddy Lee - You either love his style or hate it. I love it.
4) Alison Krauss - I could listen to her sing forever.
5) Sheila Walsh - her early Sparrow Record stuff. Back when she did rock.

1. Sting
2. Sivert Høyem (Madrugada)
3. Jes Brieden
4. Thom Yorke (Radiohead)
5. Chris Martin (Coldplay)

If you don't know Jes Brieden just check out:
Deepsky feat. Jes Brieden - Talk Like A Stranger (Markus Schulz Return to Coldharbour Remix)
Motorcycle - As The Rush Comes (Gabriel & Dresden Chillout Mix)

Best female voice today, in my opinion.
