Should be number one! How could you possible rank people like Tom Hanks, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and others higher than Elvis Presley? He's dead since 1977 and he is still one of the most selling
( dead ) artists of the world. Every year thousands of people visits Graceland. When all this other persons ranked higher on this list will die there's no way that they will becoming icons like Elvis. They will talk about for a while about them and then they will be forgotten. Get real! How in the name of all what is Holly will an artist like for instance Tom Hanks becoming an icon after he's dead? Will they sell some T-shirts, making posters of him, make a statue of him? I don't think so. Move Elvis up on this list if you want that this list will be taken as a serious list!

Let's face it, Elvis influenced everyone, in music, style, dress, talk, defines
cool, he had it all, and was a musical genius, took more then 30 takes for one song to make sure perfection or his fans got only the best. Elvis was
"real", and there is no way that you can EVER copy an original! There will never be anyone, or anything happening like this again! Elvis is and will always remain numero uno, number One! He is the first musical icon known
the world over by only one name...others may think they are in Elvis rank, but sorry folks, that slot belongs to Elvis and only Elvis, without him, you wouldn't even be here! Yes, there are a lot of great and talented people
out there, but Elvis stands alone in his own class, that's why we call him
"The King", and incidentally, he was so humble, he never liked the title, but
he sincerely loved his fans, and people in general. Elvis was Love!

7 K.S. Chithra Krishnan Nair Shantakumari Chithra, often credited as K. S. Chithra or simply Chithra, is an Indian playback singer from Kerala. Chithra also sings Indian classical, devotional, and popular music.

My favorite vocalist, by far, is Chithra. Her voice has an inherent melancholy quality which makes it perfect for the Chithra' many melancholy and sad songs. She had such a vulnerability in her voice that it makes me want to give her a comforting hug.

Nowhere will you find a voice as smooth and silky as hers. Some people say her voice is "like butter. " I believe that distinction belongs to K. S. Chithra.

But K. s. Chithra's voice possesses so many qualities and facets that I love. It is soothing and sweet, loving. And sometimes when she hits those super-low notes, it sends a chill up my spine to this day.

And sometimes when she is singing tenderly, her voice crackles, and again, you hear that vulnerability.

Some other adjectives I can use to describe her voice are warm, sincere, touching, loving, and soothing. It wraps you up like a fluffy blanket on a cold day. The emotion in her voice is inherent. She doesn't need to yell to make you understand what she ...more

23 Mohandas Gandhi Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India.

I think this is wrong too. I’m british and white/not Indian or Asian, but I think you have to compare like with like I.e. fighting oppression. I only cite others as an example as there are criticisms made towards some, but Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, M Gandhi and so in a list feels more appropriate. Madonna, MJ, Lennon, Beatles, should be in another. I’m sure Madonna doesn’t compare herself as being akin to M Gandhi either. I don’t want to get into a debate about individuals, just used for examples. But it feels disrespectful to compare icons of popular culture, with the Gandhis, the Mandela and so on.

Miley Cyrus, Madonna is more influential Than Mahatma Gandhi. Hey, I am an Indian and please don't kid me this badly. We respect Gandhiji very much. He is our icon. If you want him in this list give him a more respectable place. Please...

My friend seriously loves this guy! He was a wonderful person who stood up for Indians rights
