Perfect.

I thought the same thing from day 1 of that thread.

Herb Pedersen? Emmylou Harris called him "the greatest harmony singer" she ever worked with.

Glen Yarbrough is the greatest voice I have ever heard in person.

Linda Ronstadt is the best female singer I can think of, but Suzy Bogguss is great also.

Trying to narrow down my list of great singers to my "top 10" is, to me, kind of like People Magazine's annual "Most Beautiful People" list. Once you've listed the top 200 to 500 (or 1000) people who come to mind, the rest is a bit arbitrary.

Just off the top of my head - in no particular order - I could list:

Patsy Cline
Roy Orbison
Nana Mouskouri
Miriam Makeba
Joan Baez
Eva Cassidy
Placido Domingo
Jo Stafford
Alan Clarke (of "the Hollies")
Barry Finn
Aretha Franklin
Ella Fitzgerald
Willie Nelson
Jim Reeves
Marty Robbins
Michael Jackson
Anne Wilson (or her sister Nancy) of "Heart"
Celine Dion
Tracy Chapman
Clay Aiken
Joan Sutherland
Cecilia Bartoli
Edith Piaf
The guy who was the lead singer of The Ink Spots
Stevie Nicks
Robert Plant
Elvis Presley
Glen Yarborough
Emmylou Harris
Linda Ronstadt
Art Garfunkel
Paul Robeson
Annie Lennox
Yma Sumac
Harvey Andrews
Linda Waterfall
Allison Krauss
Elaine Paige
Colm Williamson
Michael Crawford
Diana Crall
Judy Garland
Tony Bennett
Odetta
Marian Anderson
Joan Osborne
Mary Humphreys
Loreena McKibbin (or however she spells her name)
Sissell
Finbar Hughes
Frank Sinatra
Janis Joplin
Harry Belafonte
Dave Guard
Mahalia Jackson


Give me a few more minutes and I'll think of another few dozen.


Then ask me to rank them, and I'll blow a fuse trying,


There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of those who could be in the "top ten."
And, given the number of people whose voices are still available to be heard via the wonders of technology, that's saying a lot!   *g*

This thread could of course go on & on until 'continued p94' makes its appearance. Mention of a few whose innovative or distinctive styles have proved particularly influential might prove instructive — like John Lennon; Martin Carthy; Ewan MacColl; Bert Lloyd; Maddy Prior; June Tabor; Pete Seeger; Peter Bellamy ··· Not meant to be an exhaustive list by any means, but to start a new direction of thought as to influence as well as to ability. All the above, I would argue, are singers whom we have all heard countless others strive, with greater or less success, to sound like. Such influence, I would argue, can sometimes be beneficial, sometimes baleful and restrictive: but it is, I think, a recognisable phenomenon.

Cut & paste some of the ones from the "can't sing" thread.....

Ok, female singers of folk, jazz & blues do it for me. I have a special place in my musical affections for Kate Rusby, Maddy Prior, June Tabor etc etc.

Going off on a tangent, Ian Gillan could scream a good note in his Deep Purple days, and the lady on Pink Floyd's "The Great Gig in the Sky" Clare Torry (?) can send a shiver or two.

Truth is, we can all sing if we enjoy it. May be flat as a fart but the enthusiasm can shine through.

I like your lists, Genie. Just about every singer would make mine, too. And of course, countless names keep coming to mind. Two I can't believe I didn't put on my first ten are George Jones and Merle Haggard. And then there's Claude Jeter (no relation to Derreck), lead singer of the Swan Silvertones, Archie Brownlee, lead singer of the 5 Blind Boys of Mississippi who almost single-handedly created the fervent shouts in gospel music that led to James Brown, and countless other gospel and R & B singers like Wilson Pickett, Sonny Till of the Orioles and the incomparable Sam Cooke of the Soul Stirrers.

Coming up with the list of ten singers who can't sing was a lot easier.

It depends on what you mean by "Can sing". Are you talking about talent or popularity? They are not one and the same.
Francis A. Sinatra was hugely popular but even he said he doesn't have a great voice.
I like many of the names listed even though Gordon Bok isn't among them. As far as I'm concerned, Paul Robeson and Placido Domingo top the list.

Ultimately the list is endless and maybe pointless. Unless we use these lists to try out people we haven't heard before. I was never a fan of Sinatra or Elvis. Great singers don't need great voices. Listen to Ronnie Drew and Malvina Reynolds. Go to any church and hear some great voices who aren't great performers outside their context. Few people have the whole package compared to the amount of singers there are in the world. Few can argue that Bobby Darrin was the whole package. Or The Everley's. I hope people who have never met them will check out Malvina and Gramps and Don and Red.

By Judy, is Ms Garland meant here? Fred Astaire, whatever his virtues, was hardly a top singer [tho a most attractive one at that]; but 'A Couple Of Swells' from 'Easter Parade', his duet with Judy Garland, would probably be my choice of best-ever musical number in a film: even more than the two brilliant ones from 'Singing In The Rain', 'Make Em Laugh' & the title number.

Think that needs a new thread. Watch this space.

From left field - Randy Sparks (before he formed the New Christy Minstrels) was a very credible balladeer.

Rusty Draper (made a hit with Willie Nelson's "Night Life" years ago)

I always thought that country singer Kathy Mattea had a near perfect voice for traditional folk music, had she been so inclined.

In pop, Sinatra always said that Vic Damone had the best pipes in the business. The unspoken inference was that he was a "technician" who lacked "soul." I prefer Tony Bennett, who has both.

Roberta Flack had both great pipes and soul. She might well have been very successful as a folk artist.

Roberta Flack had a mega-hit with "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," which was taken from the sound track of Clint Eastwood's first directorial job, "Play Misty For Me." It was, indeed, written by Ewen McColl for Peggy Seeger, who was shortly to become his wife.
