68 Placebo Placebo Placebo are an English alternative rock band, formed in London in 1994 by singer-guitarist Brian Molko and guitarist-bassist Stefan Olsdal.
69 Wham!

Honestly, Wham! is overrated and underrated at the same time. They have a reputation for being a "cheesy teenybopper group", yet if you listened to their lesser known songs, mainly their ballads, you can see the excellent song-writing skills. Additionally, George's unbelievably strong vocals complimented each song perfectly, at the tender age of 21, he was beyond his years and was a outstanding song-writer. Their music revived the "Motown" sound of the 60's and 70's, which is the best I've seen from a White Pop Group. - FlakyCuddles43

George Michael's silky smooth voice, belting out real pop classics early on then later, some great ballads
