Most Recognizable Singing Voices EverThis is a list of singers that you know as soon as you hear the first word!
The Top Ten
FREDDIE MERCURY - GOD OF MUSIC! And I don't use that lightly, but there is no other way to accurately sum up Freddie's genius! They'd have to invent new superlatives to even get close to this man's awesome magic! He was absolute PERFECTION!
Although Freddie had an amazing 4 octave range, his talents were so much more than that, if you can believe it. It was his passion, his charisma, his connection w/ the audience, his exuberance, his energy, his magnetism, his incomparable magic! Simply the BEST of all time, and forever, w/out competition or comparison, in a league of his own, absolutely God-like!
FREDDIE MERCURY - PERFECTION!
FREDDIE MERCURY - A Slice of Heaven!
FREDDIE MERCURY - The BEST of the Best!
FREDDIE MERCURY - THE GOD OF MUSIC!
The most spectacular voice there was. Freddie was incredible and any song he sang was the result of Heaven coming down to earth and embracing each and every soul that heard Freddie sing.
If you don't know when you hear him you need your ears cleaned out... So talented, it's such a drag he's gone
Most chilling vocal part Freddie ever did was with this line in Mother Love:
"Out in the city, in the cold world outside
I don't want pity, just a safe place to hide"
As if he wasn't so ill at the time when he recorded that!
Elvis has sold more records than everyone else on this list COMBINED.
Easily the most recognizable singing voice of all time.
Very true that Elvis Presley has higher sales than anyone on this list by far, and yes that does include MJ.
ELVIS is the most imitated human being in every way you can imagine. But never duplicated, which includes "That Voice" FACT not an opinion. I aacknowlege everything he did, he is the King but I have other personal favorites. he's still the greatest pop culrure phenomenon of all time.
Freddie Mercury is a freak of nature, the greatst vocalist but he sings so many different songs, so many different ways you don't always know its him. that's a whole different contest.
Steve, Please come back to the stage my friend! You are missed. Your voice is simply amazing and your song writing touches the lives of many. Glad to hear your health is good. Hope to see & hear you soon. By the way, Go Giants!
"The song ONLY THE YOUNG reminds me of 6th grade baseball season, summer in "The Great Land" best days of my life, I can still feel the music.
Steve has the best voice anyone can dream of.

I'm in a room with seven other people and nobody can name one Shakira song! We can however name at least one song for everyone else on the list. So my question is why is Shakira #1 on the most recognizable song list?
