He sings from the heart and soul. not the best singer but the best songwriter

92Scatman John

Where do I begin? He may not be as famous as someone like Freddie or MJ, but his music was amazing. He took his problem of stuttering and made that into his music! And many of his songs were about trying to change the world. And bonus points for (making it look like he was) singing with Louis Armstrong, the king of jazz!

He is an amazing singer. He's my favorite singer of all time! Me and my friend would listen to this guy's music any day.

Best mandolin player in the world, bar none. Listen to anything by Nickel Creek, and you'll agree,

Go Chris! Such a talented player. - NymeriaWaters

98Amy WinehouseAmy Jade Winehouse was an English singer and songwriter known for her deep expressive contralto vocals and her eclectic mix of musical genres, including soul, rhythm and blues, and jazz.

She was an incredible, talented musician who could sing anything from catchy "Rehab" to emotional "Back to Black". My absolute favorite is "Valerie", but that's a cover.

Amy is one of the greatest and she deserves to be at least at top 100

99Steven WilsonSteven John Wilson is an English musician and record producer, most associated with the progressive rock genre.

Well, you can't expect people who browse this website to know much about music. MJ in number one is ridiculous. Sure, he was alright and influential and a great entertainer, but he didn't write much music. He was one of the better pop acts, but not that great in my opinion. Steven Wilson on the other hand, if you listen to his stuff or his stuff from Porcupine Tree or his solo career, it will speak for itself

100Lou Reed
