    k.d. lang has what is probably my favorite female singing voice of all time (my time, that is :p).

    With guys, my preferences tend toward voices that aren't necessarily great or even good, but which have a lot of character - like Neil Young, or the old and pain filled voice of the Johnny Cash of the America albums.



    What about you?

    I like the old style news/radio voices. Edward R Murrow comes to mind.

    I love Neil Young. I get so much flack from people who say he can't sing. :p

    Love Chris Cornell. I like his Audioslave stuff better than Soundgarden, but that's because I am a Rage Against the Machine fan.

    I've also found Peter Steele of Type O Negative very unusual and compelling.

    I don't know if anyone is familiar with Tony Joe White. I've loved his "Poke Salad Annie" since I was a kid.

    I don't find too many female vocalists appealing. I always wished I sounded like Dusty Springfield though.

    Their loss - Neil is amazing, and so is his voice. :weird:

    Chris Cornell is one of my favourites too. Soundgarden is one of all time fave bands so I guess that makes sense!

    I like voices with power, great tone, and range. High notes especially send chills down my spine. Leona Lewis and Christina Perri have beautiful voices.

    You mean besides the one I hear in my head?

    Then that would be Eric Clapton, Ozzy Ozbourne, and Geddy Lee.

    I'm sure I can think of more for both. Just drawing a blank right now.

    Don't laugh, because I hear tell she's a bit overexposed in the US, but I love Adele.

    Also, James Taylor is an angel from heaven, surely. :)

    I love Heather Nova and her voice so much. <3 Neil Young and Bruce too! Also the voices of Joanna Newsom (probably my single favourite musician ever if I was forced to pick just one which is impossible really), Kate Bush, Ane Brun, Joni Mitchell, Ana Silvera, Eef Barzelay (Clem Snide), Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Tori Amos and loads more I'll think about after hitting submit.

    Mel Blanc... I met the man in person back when I was in college and he was simply delightful.
