Frank Sinatra, in my humble opinion, was the best singer of the 20th century. His voice was pure gold, and I'm not talking about that 98.93745937201113456 pure gold type of brick. I'm talking 100%.
Love Frank Sinatra beautiful beautiful voice so relaxing clean clear and sharp and most of all its classic and will always be
Dominated the airwaves for decades. So many memorable songs.
Perfect voice and fantastic performerV6 Comments
Paul McCartney's melodies are beautiful and heartwarming. I find that many songs of his I just like to hear them played. His best are the ones that tell a story, where you can see characters, or feel an emotion that a circumstance has caused. As I listen to that sort of a McCartney song, I learn the words, then I sing it along. And then for the rest of my life I have a song that corresponds to a certain circumstance of life. You know, like Waterfalls, or Put It There, or One Of These Days, or Somebody Who Cares, or Baby's Request, or Little Willow, or Follow Me. McCartney is also very good at pop songs, entertaining songs, either heavier rock or dance songs, rock and roll for fun. And of course there are the songs with very personal lyrics, messages in them. Very touching those. And he has written many anthem-like songs, peace songs. like Pipes Of Peace, Tug Of War, there is so many. And the most Fantastic thing about McCartney is, his melodies are all so different! He is really good. ...more
Paul should be in the top 5. He was a Beatle for crying out loud! He wrote the songs Yesterday; Hey Jude; Live and Let Die; Maybe I'm amazed; and Band On The Run by himself. He wrote A Day In The Life; Let It Be; Come Together; Here Comes the Sun; Eleanor Rigby; Help! ; Twist and Shout; While My Guitar Gently Weeps; I Want To Hold Your Hand; All You Need is Love; Helter Skelter; and Revolution with his fellow Beatles. He should be top 5 hands down.
If this guy doesn't make it to the top 5 attleast, this topten.com is a failure... People of the future, if ever there is still internet in those days, don't believe everything in what internet ever have to say.. The real top artist would be the beatles, bob marley, michael jackson, luciano pavarotti, frank sinatra, elvis presley, the temptations, james brown, led zeppelin, chuck berry, queen, 2pac, bob dylan, in no specific order. Get real people in the internet.
As a musician he could do it all. As a songwriter his melodies and harmonies changed the musical world forever. Of course he should be in the top five; right there next to Lennon.V5 Comments
