I cannot believe that no one's picked Jeff Tweedy. His voice is at once beautiful, dry, innocent, reassuring, and emotional. He is far and away my favorite singer.

Others include (no order):
Carl Wilson
David Byrne (hey, don't knock his so-so voice--it made the Talking Heads what they are/were)
Mark Olson
Gram Parsons
Bob Dylan
Pete Shelley
Stephen Malkmus
Paul Westerberg
Alex Chilton
Chris Bell
Chris Stamey

I shall show my age and say I have been listening to music, lots and lots of music, since 1961 Heard some beautiful voices in that time, but by far and away, THE greatest voice I have ever heard, no one can do to a song what he can do to a song is..........

Of all the numerous artists my parents listened to when I was little, Elvis Presley was THE one for me. What timbre. And then in teenage years I found Bowie and Plant and THEN.... Freddie Mercury.
In more recent years I discovered an old American singer, he died just 2 months after he toured Australia and I first heard him, Ted Hawkins. Unusual voice,sand and soul. I love him.

The women, Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Sinead O'Connor, Maire Brennan and Annie Lennox... the miracle of love, so many.

Nothing like being transported by a beautiful voice eh?

Welcome, great thread

1. Bono

And then in no order-

- Thom Yorke
- Darren Hayes
- Michael Stipe
- Chris Martin - I didn't really like his voice until I heard "What's Going On," the London version I think it is, which he sings a lot on. He has such a lovely voice on that. So much nicer than on all of Coldplay's songs I think.
