Best Male Singers

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Art Garfunkel Art Garfunkel Arthur Ira "Art" Garfunkel is an American singer, poet and actor. He partnered in his earlier years with Paul Simon in the folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel.

Seriously? If you are going for SINGERS he should be in top 10-20, he had the most beautiful voice of anyone male singer I have heard. Bridge of troubled water, sound of silence, homeward bound? Outstanding songs. Garfunkel is one of the most underrated artists in this list.

If you're talking about pure singing ability there is no way Art Garfunkel is not in the top 20. Can you listen to Bridge Over Troubled Water without getting goose bumps? I can't.

A really great singer, not nearly as well known today as he should be. All you idiot beliebers out there, starved for decent music, I pity you.

He should be number 1 people, he has a voice of an angel

82 James Hetfield James Hetfield James Alan Hetfield was born on August 3, 1963. He is an American musician, singer and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.

Most powerful singer that act lyrics in super high voice for 30 years
In metal, that's amazing! He is the best and his sound make me crazy and emotion! He deserve more and more than it!

He has metal magic in his voice he ing so good without any effects no body match him at least he not deserve here

James sings more than 30 years and he still sounds awesome!
His voice has changed over the years but I think that's good. I think it would be boring to hear always the same voice. He sounds much different on master of puppets than on death magnetic and that is one thing which makes Metallica the best band of all time for me!
I hope he will never stop singing 'cause his voice has something that makes me feeling good.

James is the best, he should be at least in TOP 3...

83 Jared Leto Jared Leto

Jared Leto has a powerful and sensitive voice like no other. He is also a talented writer who pours his soul in his songs. He is able to evoke strong emotions with his powerful and gentle voice. Unique!

Jared Leto has one of the most amazing and unique voices in the music industry. You really can't deny that he deserves to be at least in the top ten. Plus, he's also a great songwriter.

He's very hot and he's got the best voice I've ever heard in my life. Please vote for him!

Wonderful voice!

84 Roy Orbison Roy Orbison Roy Kelton Orbison, professionally known as Roy Orbison, nicknamed Big O, was an American singer, songwriter, guitarist, and musician, mostly known for his complex voice and for hits such as, "Oh, Pretty Woman".

I think it was In 1963 Orbison toured with The Beatles before they were well known. Orbison did fourteen encores before The Beatles played. He was better than The Beatles and they knew it. In a way, one could say he helped them to become great. Orbison was over the top to help express certain emotions that we all have, especially grief. "Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep."

Roy Orbison was the most naturally gifted male vocalist ever. Maybe other singers have been or are more entertaining but none could produce such perfect notes with so little effort.

When I hear or play Orbison in my apt, I turn volume UP and let myself groove.. And let go. And once I'm in that Orbison mood I need more... Just hanging on til I had my fill.. Til I'm satiated. Its like chocolate or wine or sex. Then I resume my whatever. But don't get that serendipity chance to hear R.O. much any more.. sadly.

The idea that roy is not in the top ten means one thing. These are opinions. When Elvis and the "Boss," both say he was the best, that means something

85 Bryan Adams Bryan Adams

There were so many good singers that I wanted to vote for! I kept changing my mind, but when I saw Bryan Adams I decided
I actually found out about him from watching Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, which is kind of funny haha, but he makes amazing songs with great lyrics. His voice is also amazing.
Bryan Adam rocks! (So does everyone else of this list (except Bieber))

How can he be in the top 20. Man he's such a great singer so good excellent. Man singers like JB are above him. What a bad list.

He definitely is the best.. And his song are and always will be my favourite. This list is seriously insulting this great singer.

I hate this list, all the best singers aren't in the top 20. bryan should be in the top 10. Bryan's songs were the first songs I ever heard. I loved the move Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron only because of the songs and when I found out Bryan sang them I went looking for all his songs. his song Summer of 69' was the first song I had found and it was th best of any other songs any other singer sang. the only person who can bypass Bryan is Zayn but I don't care I love Bryan and always will. he's the one who brought music to my life. I love you Bryan

86 David Archuleta

He has the most beautiful voice I've ever heard!
I Heart David!
He's just such a good singer! He should be in the top twenty!

The most talented singer on earth bring him up to the top 10 list! We can do it Arch Angels! Spread the word

He doesn't need auto tune. He doesn't need backup singers, dancers, change of clothing, light effects during his concerts. All he needs to lift everyone off their feet is his voice.

Not to mention his personality, which separates him from other fame obsessed artists. He doesn't try to act cool or try to fit in, his goofy and awkward side is good enough to inspire ALL his fans to contribute to society, to help those in need.

I could write a book about David. What more can be said?

He is amazing and super duper talented

88 Gackt Gackt

Gackt's voice is the strongest I've ever heard. He can sound like he is crying when he sings, he can hold a long note and make you breathless, not to mention his songs are epicly enchanting. I always hesitate to listen to his music b/c I can't handle all those emotions he puts into his singing. It touches my soul and I'm overcome with this bewilderment that makes me want to break down, and I'm not even Japanese! That's how amazing of a singer he is! Only his music can move me so much that I am afraid to listen to everyday, or else I'd be smiling/crying like crazy everyday. That's what music is suppose to do, it's suppose to touch your soul. Gackt is the definition of music.

Gackt, definitely! He has his own vocaloid, a character he helped make for the compilation of Final Fantasy VII, and does the voice acting for him in the Japanese version of Dirge of Cerberus and Crisis Core, and even made two songs that were used in Dirge of Cerberus! He has a great voice, and is just better than the other singers!

His music is pure inspiration to all of his fans, calls the fans his family and in anything he does he will put his heart, soul and strength into for us as his fans to enjoy and this wonderful work that he has created.

Unique with a deep voice, great vareity and vocal range, costume- the Japanese version of David Bowie. - wishreality88

89 Akon Akon Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam, better known as Akon, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, businessman, record producer and actor.

Akon is my favorite you guys are in 1990's come to 2011 thumbs up in 2050 to hear the song against the grain... ;)

He is the best and will be the best. In recent times his popularity has decreased as he has not released any album for 7 years. But his new album STADIUM is coming out in 2015 (most probably) and then he'll blow everyone. He can easily defeat most of the singers in this list with his skills.

My favourite singer.. He sings so well.. The best singer of R&B genre.. A good songwriter too.. All of his lyrics has a quality.. Got 5 nominations for grammy award..

He is one of best in the world

90 Benjamin Burnley Benjamin Burnley Benjamin Jackson Burnley IV is an American musician, composer, and producer, best known as the founder and frontman of the American rock band Breaking Benjamin.

He has such an amazing talent when it comes to his voice deepening during the lyrics. He's just one of those singers who speaks about the pain and agony he's endured throughout his life via his songs

He has a voice unlike any other. Fantastic live and he writes his own songs. Pure Talent.

Talented song writer and muusician. Can actually play lead guitar and is very nice and funny. He is sick a lot but continues to do what he loves.

He should be in top 10 what's wrong with you people. This guy has an insanely amazing voice. Just listen to Breathe and Dance with the devil

Dino is number one! He is big entertainer, and a greatest singer with magnificent voice.

Dino is best male singer ever-smooth, cool, and charismatic. He is still popular after more than 50 years from his first hit.

Best male vocal in earth history... Natural voice, and boy, he could sing!

Dino is the King of Cool. He should be in the top 25

92 Menowin Menowin

17 is definitely much too far away from top. Menowin is so special and he should be in the Top Three! Current Top Two are fantastic anyway!

When I hear him singing my soul gets peaceful and delight. When I look into his eyes I must take care not to loose myself. And I'm really wondering about what happened to me!

Menowin is the voice, the dancer after Michael Jackson. He had the most beautiful eyes of the world.

He's the real number one! Check him out and you'll agree.

Just listen to wicked game and tell me this guy isn't one of the most talented voices their has been. His voice is clear, clean and smooth. It's crazy seeing rappers ranked ahead of this guy or heavy metal guys. Most of the guys on this list are entertainers and do not have singing voices.

Beautiful voice! One of the most underrated musicians. Real talent!

Love his high pitch, and low too, voice. Nice words in the songs.

98 Nate Ruess Nate Ruess

How can you not have Nate Ruess on here?! He has the most unique voice ever! He is a great singer that started off at the bottom and he went sky rocket with his hit single with Fun. "We are Young". He should have been recognized for his beautiful voice.

Best tenor out there on Rock/indie right now. Awesome vocal control and range, coming off a garage band apprenticeship. Love him, he will only get better!

Oh my goodness! How could Nate Ruess not be on this list?! He has the most unique voice ever!

My favorite singer on number 99. What

99 Hansi Kürsch Hansi Kürsch Hansi Kürsch, born Hans Jürgen Kürsch, is the lead singer, lyricist, co-composer and bassist for German power metal band Blind Guardian . Heavily influenced by Freddie Mercury, he creates a huge choir effect by overdubbing his own voice multiple times in complex, overlapping vocal harmonies. He records more.

Before him my favorite singers were Freddie, Chris Cornell, Axl Rose, David Coverdale, to name a few. But when I heard Hansi singing 'The Bard's Song' by Blind Guardian, I instantly knew he was my new favorite singer of all time. He is just mindblowing - a beautiful voice with power, range and versatility. - Metal_Treasure

100 Ben E. King Ben E. King

His most famous song was "Stand By Me" which was an iconic song - Ajkloth

Ben E. King was a soulful singer with a rich voice.
