Crosby's trademark warm bass-baritone voice made him the best-selling recording artist of the 20th century, having sold over one billion records, tapes, compact discs and digital downloads around the world.

He was great as a tenor. When tenors went out of fashion he dropped down to baritone and had more number 1 hits then anyone in history.

Yeah! I mean just Listen to the range of things he expressed.. From "shadow play" to "dead souls" to"transmission ", notice how his voice is keeping up with the band even at the heaviest moments. Incredible really.

26 Mark Lanegan

Every time I hear this man sing, I get shivers down my spine in the most wonderful way. It plays my soul like a Stradivarius. Most pleasing singing voice I've heard since Otis Redding.

27 Joey Fatone

Joey's voice is so soft and soothing to my ears when he sings alone. But with NSYNC' we couldn't hear his vocals because of that deep base by lance.

30 Bryn Terfel

Bryn Terfel truly is a legend, the best in my opinion.

Bryn Terfel is extraordinary. A gift to mankind.

One of the best. His interpretation of Wagner, Rogers and Hammerstein, Mozart, etc., is ALWAYS something to listen to and enjoy.

One of the best singers in every way. Whether he's singing Cole Porter, Schubert, Wagner, or American folk music, Thomas Hampson delivers in a most enjoyable way.

This man is greatest, the best of the best and a living legend. His voice extraordinary.

A remarkable talent and very dedicated to his industry.

The most beautiful voice in the world

Not everyone can mix baritone with deep emotions. being the backbone of imagine dragons and an unique singer, Dan is one of the best ever!

Awesome choice for a perfect baritone!

34 John Mayer John Mayer
35 Dean Martin Dean Martin

I'm 33 years old and learned of Dean about 3 or so years ago. This man's voice changed the way I listened to music no one (Including Sinatra or Crosby, albeit greats in their own) came close to what I was seeking while listening to music. So relaxed, powerful lyrics and passion behind a voice I thought never existed. But alas, I was too young when he died to even know about him until my thirties. I've heard about 500+ songs from this man and every song is just so amazing. I don't think I can say that he ever made a "bad" song. In many cases he made bad songs so good that people forgot who did the originals, now that's saying something. I encourage anyone to listen to one of his capitol recordings and listen for themselves.

His voice was just so wonderful. Elvis literally worshipped him! Long live Dino, the King of Cool!

The greatest ever Never again will his likes be seen

36 Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau
37 Jim Morrison Jim Morrison James Douglas "Jim" Morrison was an American singer, songwriter, and poet best remembered as the lead singer of the Doors.

Have you not heard this man's voice!? it captures such richness and deep beauty

38 Nat King Cole Nat King Cole Nathaniel Adams Coles, known professionally as Nat King Cole, was an American singer who first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist.

I don't think many people here know what baritone means. - higgsboson2142

I grew up with Nat King Cole - my mum is a massive fan. I thank her for introducing me to that wonderful, warm, velvety voice.

Underrated as a vocalist. Wild is the Wind is an amazing performance, it's mindboggling to think a puff of wind would have blown him over at the time and he was in his cocaine phase. Very strong voice, seldom needed more than one take.

The best looking and best singing...
