Best Singers From the 80sabhimanyukhanna
The Top Ten
He had the best selling album not just of the 80s but of ALL TIME. He created the most groundbreaking music video of ALL TIME - thriller and the most groundbreaking dance called the moonwalk which looks like he is walking backwards. Who can forget his amazing songs like Billie Jean, Beat It, Bad, Man In The Mirror, Dirty Diana and Smooth Criminal? Michael was a phenomanal singer, dancer, songwritter and entertainer. He had it ALL. He was also the greatest humanitarian. He gave away ALL his money from his BAD tour to charity. He is the most generous celebrity the world has seen as well as the most humble thoughtful and kind. Michael Jackson was too good for this world. People were so jealous of his success and talents that the slandered and ruined his reputation saying He molested children when Michael Jackson will never do such a thing He loved children. Years later those children came out saying they lied because their parents wanted money. The media also slandered him saying He ...more
If we are talking 'singing voices' then Whitney Houston is easily number 1! But if we are talking all round greatness, there really is absolutely no question laugh out loud. No competition at all. He's the greatest entertainer ever and the most famous person of all time
He was the best! Freddie mercury might have had a better voice, but Michael jackson always made the best use of his voice, and he danced and changed everything. We wouldn't have had any of this if it weren't for him
In my opinion, Michael Jackson is the king of all music and music history. He has created new genres of music, shown not to be afraid of your past or what someone has done to you, and how to heal the world. Michael's legacy will forever live on, and show what a great and outstanding person, Michael Jackson really was. Even through the controversy, Michael got past them, as the innocent man he was and will forever be. Thank you, Michael Jackson, for healing the world,and me and making it a better place.V 13 Comments
Difference with Hadley compared to others is that he can sing absolutely out and sound great
At the moment Tony is 14th. Reality others may have been commercially better, but not vocally.
I think he is one of the best. His voice still sounds natural, powerful and confident.
TH does not have the big hits but his voice is so strong even nowV 5 Comments
His voice was amazing and he composed some amazing songs along with it - abhimanyukhanna
Although he was more 70's, Freddie is still a legend! He was the Elvis of the 70's and was so talented. Sadly he died before I was born, and I didn't get to live in his generation.
Dude, he was so good people now a days don't appreciate music that was actually good he was kinda more 70's but still good so sad that he died.
I love MJ, but nobody beats Freddie.V 9 Comments
She had such a beautifull voice and all her songs have meaning behind them. My favourite songs are 'La Isla Bonita' and 'Like a Prayer'. They both have very good background stories which fit the music perfectly. When you look at her then and look at her now she has changed quite a lot.
Saw her in concert best night of my life go see her so amazing changed my life she is to me like David Bowie was to her
Never gonna give you up
He is a goddess in his
Songs I love him so much
I love her so much, she was the greatest!
She is amazing!
Prince has more talent than any other artist in history. He sings, dance, writes, composes, and also the master of over twenty seven instrument. It's obvious why they call him the purple yoda, he's truly a master of the force.
Very distinguished and life style.
How is he not at least at #2, you guys have no culture.
Even though I'm more of a Michael Jackson fan, I love Prince's music. R.I.P.
His voice is second to none. Freddie mercury had an amazing, powerful voice it didn't have the purity of GM's. Plus can you see anyone else able to pull off 'somebody to love' at Freddie's tribute concert and not sound awful in comparison to the original artist?!
Incredible range and emotion-filled highs and lows. Amazing!
Best singer songwriter that ever lived
#1, no questionV 7 Comments
This man has a voice like no other. Everything I have ever heard him sing, and I own all of Journey's albums as well as Perry's Street Talk, has been amazing. One of the very best things I can think of happening is for him to rejoin Journey. To attend one of their concerts would be a dream come true, and I would very much like to hear a new album... or two... or ten. He was a very important factor in turning Journey into something special. Journey with Steve Perry is a combination that is perfect in every way.
My opinion on this will never ever change, Steve Perry is the best singer I have ever heard. He is capable of so much emotion, and you can hear the passion he has in every note. He is amazingly talented, and has an insane range. Listening to certain songs, like the earlier ones from Infinity and Evolution, often leave me breathless. He never ceases to amaze me, even when I have heard all of his songs several dozen times.
Seriously, Steve Perry is the best singer EVER! Maybe you are unaware, HE IS JOURNEY! He has amazing range, and has such power with his voice. However, the most unique thing about his singing is the passion he puts into it, no one can compare with that.
No one can replace this voiceV 7 Comments
I know Cyndi Lauper is the One of the biggest Pop Star in the universe
CYNDI LAUPER IS THE BEST
Go to one of her show and then explain why she's not number 1.
She's sung 4 octaves live.V 3 Comments
The Boss, even though he doesn't have the most beautiful voice, has managed to bring to the mainstream some of the greatest rockers and ballads about the American working class and the dismantlement of the American Dream. No other artist in history has had the same consistency, passion and truthfulness towards his beliefs and that is why Bruce Springsteen deserves a spot at the top of the charts. Also, the 3-hour shows he delivers night after night after night are just as electrifying as ever. Out of all the artists listed here, The Boss is definitely the one who can still bring it.
Still here, still selling to sold out crowds, still the Boss!
Sting had a range like no other. He could sing any song he wanted to.
Singer from the Norwegian band A-ha, the voice behind "Take On Me". He has a beautiful, soothing voice, and a very expansive voice range. It's hard not to love it.
He's great and has a beautiful voice. And I think I'm hardly the only one to find him handsome, besides everything else!
A-Ha singer, fantastic group.
Try and sing 'take on me'. Ever wondered why one of the most popular songs of all time is not a Karaoke classic. Because it's impossible to sing 'well' unless your name is Morten Harket. Oh yes, then try and sing 'summer moved on' and hold 'that' note. Bloody impossible.
Axl Rose is the best of course! His unique voice CAN NOT be accurately imitated by anyone, his dances, He can really move and does snake dance and other dances so smoothly
Unique rock voice from the last great rock singer in history - he closes an era
Hetfield's voice back then was indeed awesome... One of the contributing factors in Metallica's success, I suppose...
Good to see Dave Gahan on the list. Depeche Mode are often overlooked on "Best of" lists but they have made an enormous contribution to electronic music and Gahan has a distinctive voice.
His charismatic performance and deep baritone push him over the top.
He great because his voice touch me and
Make me feel relaxed.
I love her smoky voice
The best singer from the new wave. So much talent. He has a very vast vocal range. Also he sound the same in live performances then he would in a regular song
The best is tina and Michael jackson
Beautiful voice and lyrical genius, Everyone in the world should be like Morrissey.
One of the best voices of all time!V 1 Comment
I think Kurt and his band Nirvana was more towards the 90s than the 80s
One of the best vocal tone qualities of the 80s. Check out Hall & Oates Live 1983
A great singer and symbol of 80s music, and a great actor in a few films.
He has a great voice and is what a lot of people today would think to if someone asked about 80s music.
Culture club superstar with massive hits like 'karma chameleon', 'do you really want to hurt me church of the poison mind miss me blind and time (clock of the heart)
Loved them guys..
You may not think he has a good singing voice, but his way of rap-yelling influenced the whole death metal genre, and is still unique to this day.
