No matter how sad or depressed I am. Madonna always gets me through it. I adore her and her voice is very distinct you can always tell it's her

Nope. Not even Madonna claims to be a great singer. Her voice is always electronically manipulated. Make a list of singers AFTER you have heard them with their vocals isolated.

There is a warmth to Madonna's voice. It sounds like a mother singing to you.
I know her voice when I hear it and it makes me feel secure and hopeful.

Madonna is the best female artist in my time! She is literally a part of my soul!

If you think about it, NOBODY sounds like Rihanna. Y'all are sleeping on her. She's not the greatest singer every, but definitely unique.

She's getting better and better with each song! Anyone who's listening to her from earlier period can easily detect it! She's become a strong and amazing vocalist! Her voice is smooth, edgy & unique!

She sounds different from the rest.

She shoulden't be 81.Vote for her.

Incredibly unique voice, I agree with all these comments, he should be at least in the top 20. I have never heard anyone that can pronounce words like he can. His voice is raspy and high pitched as well. I have not heard anyone that sounds like him at all, his voice will only be heard once, and never again in the history of Earth. - AnimeDrawer

Couldn't have said it better. Three different bands and you can tell hear him in every one. In fact sometimes its hard to differentiate the band because his voice is the most unique pa.

Come on why did I have to add him to the list; why wasn't he already here?! He has the most unique singing voice I've ever heard and sounds so different to everybody else! He should be in the top 10!

He would be much higher if his voice didn't change. His old voice was genre defining

44 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

Unique? HaH! Try mind boggling, from another planet incredible, Heaven is missing one of its angels, drop dead, blow your socks off beautiful... Yeah, those come close to adequately describing the vocals of Miss Jacqueline Marie Evancho.

Routinely brings tears to the eyes of all listeners.. Her waveform patterns are unlike any other singer.. Her voice is unique.. It has been said that her voice is the only thing that dulls the pain of some chronic sufferers..

One of the few singers who can really sing "The Star Spangled Banner" properly, on-key, with all the words, and without lip-synching. I'd say that's unique.

Jackie's new album "Two Hearts" is packed with an hour of music that shows Jackie's tremendous versatility and range. She is a fearless songstress who is unafraid to challenge people's expectations of her. - BobG

Fantastic tenor voice, multimedia singer! I can recognize his voice mile away...

Fantastic voice, fantastic soul, He left his mark on this earth. May he always sing with angels above and watch over us!

He sang like an angel. And had the soul to match.

One of a kind...

46 Maynard James Keenan Maynard James Keenan Maynard James Keenan, often referred to by his initials MJK, is an American musician, record producer, winemaker, and actor, best known as the vocalist for Grammy Award-winning progressive metal band Tool.

I cannot believe Maynard James Keenan is #60 on here! I'm sorry, but I've heard plenty of voices like Avril Lavigne's voice. And Britney Spears? Take out the highly edited/computerized crap and what do you have left? I have never heard a voice like Maynard's. Not ever!

Shouldn't have to scroll this far to see this name, underrated band in-general, overrated by the bands fans, definitely one of the most original sounding band of all time in all ways.

What can I even say? This list is completely out of order.

What are you deaf people?

48 Morten Harket Morten Harket Morten Harket is a Norwegian musician, best known as the lead singer of the synthpop/rock band A-ha, which released ten studio albums and topped the charts internationally after their breakthrough hit "Take on Me" in 1985.

The singer who is in the Guinness Book of records for the uniqueness of the voices five octaves is not in the top five?! What kind of vote?

Although I prefer his songs as an A-ha member, I agree that his voice is deep and eerie

Are you mad mortan 39 god of unique voice deserve should be n1 can't beat them - sureshsari0.ur

Morten s voice is like anyother. 5/8 of vocal range: Freddy Mercury, for instance, only 3/8, Jakko... don t make me laugh! Morten s voice is very very deep and male and then sweet and like angel. Morten Harket is the god of sing. Morten is nr.1!

His debut solo album Hesitant Alien was released ...read more.

This is insulting Gee should be right at the top! Come on guys! His voice is just so amazing words can't describe how much I love his voice. It's so pure and I could listen to it wherever, whenever and forever. He has such a recognizable voice and I could pick it out even if he was just humming in the background, this man is truly amazing and bonus sexy too!
Proud Member Of the MCRmy

First thing, why is Gee only at 35!?! His voice is amazing. I could literally listen to it all day, everyday. I could pick his voice from anywhere, no matter what. He has the most recognizable voice I have ever heard. Gerard Way is absolutely phenomenal. He should be in at least top 10. My Chemical Romance is my favourite band of all time, and always will be.

ONLY 35!?!? Nowadays you can't pick out who is who out of all of these new rock bands. I've always been able to pick out Gerard's voice! Now, My Chemical Romance is my favorite band but it is because of this fact. Gerard's voice is phenomenal and he should be in at least the top 15, but what do I know?

Gerard should be AT LEAST in the top 20's. There's no one with a voice even close to his! It's passionate and full of control and he never lip-syncs or requires autotune.

50 Neil Young Neil Young Neil Percival Young is a Canadian singer-songwriter and musician, producer, director and screenwriter.

This list is a joke Neil has to be higher, one of the most beautiful and unique voices I've ever heard. He should be first on this list

As far as being unique, Neil is definitely top ten. I can name several people that sound like almost everyone who is ahead of him on this list. I can't think of one person that sounds like Neil Young.

Ya what's up with this?!? Neil Young is the most unique and amazing voice on planet Earth. Period. No wait, maybe Josh Groban is the most amazing, but he is by far the most unique. Even though Jimmy Fallon can do an incredible imitation.

His vocals are the clearest I've ever heard, you never need to read the lryics with a neil young song - RecklessGreed

51 Regina Spektor Regina Spektor

Her style is so unique, I could recognize any of her songs in a heart beat

She has an amazing voice to match an amazing girl! She inspired so many other singers that to this day many people try to copy her style, but she is the only good one! She should be number 1!

Her voice is so amazing and unique! Discovered her a little while ago but know would recognize her voice anywhere

Literally every time I hear a Spektor song, I immediately imagine her, whether I know the song or not.

53 Pink Pink Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

Her voice is raspy.. With a hint of attitude and I don't really care when she sings up tempo songs.. When she gets soulful with the rasp and a beautiful ranges.. It's sad she is way down here at 75 people she has one hell of a voice.. And if you can't recognize her from two words.. You've got some major problems

Has a deep smoky something to it, that's catchy and true at the same time. She all time trumps Swift come on guys. She may not be all that popular anymore but she is pretty good, better than others I can say. - Papergirl

Okay Pink should be in the top ten.
Because a lot of people have tried to sing like her, but let's face it there is only one Pink.

She is one of my least favorite singers, but I'll admit that you can instantly recognize one of her songs.

He can make his voice go high when he's being funny and low when he is being serious - EGreen

Why Eminem is in top 10? he has great voice even while rapping fast his voice is so smooth.He has great ability to make his voice high while rapping,

56 Rob Halford Rob Halford Robert John Arthur "Rob" Halford is an English singer and songwriter, who is best known as the lead vocalist for the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band Judas Priest and famed for his powerful wide ranging operatic voice.

Hey, ever listened to Painkiller, Dreamer Deceiver, Victim of Changes, Resurrection... Etc. Etc.? People who voted for Michael Jackson, Sarah Brightman, Britney Spears and the rest of those pop singers up there, who has never possessed any great vocal quality at all and got popular through lyrics and dance routines (excepting MJ perhaps), you really don't know what the term "Unique Voice" means. COME ON, Rob Halford had a 6 octave vocal range and still has over 4 and a half octave at the age of 60+! He can sing, he can scream, he can growl, he can hit the extreme highest note[painkiller, Resurrection etc. ] could hit extremely dark low notes[Dreamer Deceiver, Dying to meet you etc. ], could hit all kinds of note in one song with strong vibrato [e.G. victim of Changes, Dreamer Deceiver] and people actually gives the number one position to someone else?! Rob Halford had, has and will always have the most unique voice in music history. Anybody thinking otherwise... Please please just ...more

Since you can't change the twisted minds of the pop music sheep, I'll take this opportunity to salute one of my top three vocalists...ever. I first heard this guy in 1976 " Sinner" and have been a fan ever since.

In the top 3 for sure.

HE IS THE GREATEST VOCALIST ON ANY GENRE OF MUSIC

57 Elton John Elton John

One of the greatest voices to ever grace the Earth. From mainstream hits like Something About The Way You Look Tonight to resonating songs like the Lion King's Can You Feel The Love Tonight all the way to the eerie yet souful Candle In The Wind, Elton deserves a much higher rank on this list! - kapikapi

58 Lady Gaga Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress.

Lady gaga has a very strong voice that is capable of doing many things. I would at least expect her to be in the top5. She has really changed the meaning of music and has evolved it to something stronger. Like art. I love you gaga! Monster for life

Lady gaga has a unique style in music that's nobody make it from before and lady gaga have a lot of fan that's support her I wish the luck for her

She Has A Monumental Voice And She Should Not Be At Number 55. VOTE FOR HER!

She is a unique piece.i love her a lot.#poker face is the best. - sydneysky

59 Bruce Dickinson Bruce Dickinson Paul Bruce Dickinson, known professionally as Bruce Dickinson, is an English musician, airline pilot, and broadcaster. He is most well known for being the lead singer in heavy metal band Iron Maiden and his solo career.

come on people, Patrick Stump is ahead of Dickinson? Honestly just listen to Iron Maiden's Number of the Beast, Piece of Mind, Powerslave, Somewhere in Time, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son and A Matter of Life and death. Any song from these albums, you will be amazed

Best singer in the world, once again people have preconcepts about iron maiden, of all of this singers, Bruce is the only one NO ONE can imitate, the other ones I've seem people singing just like them

Seen them 4 times in Atlanta on last tour... Please he blows 95% of all singers AWAY I'm 49 and have good an eye for talent and Bruce is in top 2 only to Rob Halford... Good company

How on earth is Bruce Dikinson so low?. He is one the best vocalists in the world alongside Izzy Osbourne, Robert Plant and Mercury

60 David Archuleta David Archuleta David James Archuleta is an American singer-songwriter, musician, and actor. At ten years old, he won the children's division of the Utah Talent Competition leading to other television singing appearances.

Not enough people know his voice for him to be this high. I haven't seen Mick Jagger, Tom Petty, Bob Seger, John Fogerty, or Rod Stewart yet, all of whom, along with many others, have a much more recognizable voice than Archuleta? Is that his name? I don't even recognize his name, much less his voice.

No one sounds like David, his voice is unique and amazing. Listen to his Live Performances, be careful you just may turn into a fangirl/guy unwillingly and there's no turning back.

The strongest voice is not always the most unique one. So, I definitely think that all the singers that are above David in that list have stronger voices than him, but his voice is without a doupt the most unique.
