Top Ten Songs With the Most Impressive VocalsAlpha101

This is a legendary vocal performance, including the screams - Ian Gillan screams for about 2 minutes towards the end. - Metal_Treasure
While Halford probably did a better job vocally with "Painkiller," this is his second best song, in my opinion. At first, he sounds nervous and paranoid, but then, during the chorus, he sounds hopeful and happy, which really makes this song great. - Alpha101
Especially the ending vocals - PinkFloyd99
A very dark and doomy song giving chills. Glenn Danzig has a very impressive and rare type of voice - baritenor (baritone voice, tenor range). He sounds like a darker and heavier version of Jim Morrison. - Metal_Treasure
It is sad that today's music fans actually think Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Christina Aguilera, and all the rest of the pop princesses can actually sing. Aretha Franklin is the Queen of Soul.
Marvin is spinning in his grave every time somebody says they like Kanye West.
Is there anybody anywhere who does not love this song? Written by Smokey Robinson, who was smart enough to know he had pure gold, he gave it to the Temptations for the TLC they, and especially lead singer Ruffin could give it. No yelling, no histrionics, no melismatic over-singing, just the most mellifluous sound imaginable.
What is this sample?
Its is some guy covering Lennon, not Lennon himself.
The immortal Levi Stubbs is the only other person on this list who could stand on the same stage with Luciano Pavarotti and Elvis Presley. As much as I love Jim Morrison and John Lennon, their skills were even more so in the writing than in the singing. Even such phenomenal voices as Gaye, Ruffin, and Garfunkel were of a more gentle and mellifluous nature.
