not necessarily your fav artist or songwriter.
What voice could you listen to endlessly?
Sam Cooke for me.
her voice is nicer. Frank Black wrote good songs and that but he sounds like a stuck pig some of the time. Not that it doesn't fit
was "Like the stars and the sun! Like the stars and the sun!" in 'Is She Weird'
TAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME. TAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME. No?
That's some good stuck pig singing right there. Sucks that he apparently can't do proper screaming anymore, he was just shouting like a weirdo on the reunion tour :(
Al Green, too.
I know there's a bit of a chorus effect on his voice there but I'm not arsed it's incredible.
At this moment in time Lightnin Hopkins is doing it for me more than anyone.
Would be my top 6.
Are some of mine.
I tell ye what though, this Guided By Voices song 'Bulldog Skin' has a bit every three lines of verse where it sounds like he's sort of struggling to get up to the highest note but he just gets there in the nick of time. It's dead good I could listen to that bit all day. It's like a drunk man who can actually hit notes innit
dunno bout the other two.
This is a fun game.
If so, good shout!
is possibly the only person who could calm my nerves if I was really left with just one voice to listen to, and this is based on impulse not a great listening history.
James Dean Bradfield
Milk Eyed Mender Joanna Newsom
Justin Vernon (Bon Iver- the falsetto just kills me)
Sufjan Stevens, Andrew Bird.
Karen O (it's the sexiest voice EVER)
I can't think of the one I really want to and it's DOING MY HEAD IN
dusty springfield and ronnie spector for me...
