Best voices:
Bono
Chris Martin
Bjork
Pj Harvey
Allison Goldfrapp
Shirley Manson
Lauryn Hill
Gwen Stefani
Skye Edwards
Damon Albarn
Michael Stipe

Worst voices:
Britney Spears
The singer from Creed..I don't remember his name.

That's all I can think of right now.

I love the voices of...

Bono
Michael Stipe
Norah Jones
Sarah McLachlan
Bruce-ok, he might not have the best 'standard singing voice' but whatever people may think is 'lacking' there he makes up for it in spades in passion and emotion
Sarah Brightman
Elvis
James Taylor
Roy Orbison
Lennon/McCartney/Harrison

Don't love....

Britney
the other Nelly..the band aid guy
Scott Stapp
insert name of any singer in one of the boy bands here___
Rob Zombie
Kid Rock
Fred Durst

I really like Dolores O'Riordan's (cranberries lead singer) voice, its so unique.

I don't like Cher's or Celine Dion's, I find them both to be extremely obnoxious.

I don't like Macy Gray's voice.

It actually pisses me off when I hear it.



Maybe its a weird chemical reaction.
