Top 10 Greatest Vocal Performances of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2

21 My Immortal - Evanescence (Amy Lee)
22 Yesterday - Paul McCartney
23 Since I've Been Loving You - Robert Plant
24 Dream On - Steven Tyler

Best vocals ever

25 Into the Mystic - Van Morrison
26 Without You - Harry Nilsson

Yes he is a good piece of song I like it

27 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath (Ronnie James Dio)
28 Love Reign O'er Me - Roger Daltrey

There is no doubt "Bohemian Rhapsody" is the greatest song in popular music history and Freddie Mercury is the greatest rock singer that ever lived, but the greatest vocal performance is definitely Roger Daltrey with "Love Reign O'er Me". He belts the emotion out and it's a perfect ending to Quadrophenia. Oh God I need a drink... of COOL COOL RAIN!

It's so energetic, so loud, so real, and a major contender for the top spot position. -

Actually, there is a ton of doubt about BoRap being the GOAT. I can think of 50 songs that are better, and a dozen singers better than Freddie.

Awesome! - Garjen

29 Piece Of My Heart - Janis Joplin

Amazing and problably the greatest female performence of all time. -

30 Stargazer - Rainbow (Ronnie James Dio)

I really can't believe this vocal masterpiece is in 103 place...

Just listen to it.

One of the best ever - RIP RJD

31 Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
32 Can't Help Falling In Love - Elvis Presley
33 Landslide - Stevie Nicks
34 Earth Song - Michael Jackson
35 Who Want's To Live Forever - Freddy Mercury

Freddie was and still is a voice that you just can't shake it still gives me goosebumps!

36 Victim of Changes - Rob Halford

The High Pitched Screms, the epic voice, and the song itself makes it one of the greatest vocal perfomences.

Judas Priest forever! Best vocal performance.
Victim of chaanges!

37 Respect - Aretha Franklin
38 I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

Come on, way better than Greatest Love of All. Perfectly arranged, sung and felt! In terms of female pop, none better.

39 Baby I Need Your Loving - Levi Stubbs

Any of several songs by the Four Tops could be on this list, but I think this one is the best. Levi Stubbs had the most evocative voice anywhere.

I can't think of a song Levi Stubbs did that wasn't good, but to really hear him sing, you have to listen to the less commercial songs and unreleased tracks.

40 Black Dog - Led Zeppelin
