The Contenders: Page 9

161 Joe Cocker Joe Cocker John Robert "Joe" Cocker was an English singer and musician. He was known for his gritty voice, spasmodic body movement in performance and definitive versions of popular songs.

Just his pure raw voice and music style make him who he is. So vulnerable and yet strong. It's literally like nothing else.

You can't tell it's Joe Cocker? Seriously, who else could it be? Absolutely NO ONE ELSE sounds like Joe Cocker.

162 Kyo - Dir en grey Kyo - Dir en grey Kyo is a Japanese musician, poet and singer-songwriter. He is best known as the vocalist of the metal band Dir en grey. He has been with the band since its inception in 1997 and was formerly in La:Sadie's.

The man who has the most wide vocal range in music history. Seriously, do any of you even know how many voices this guy can make and apply them in live performances perfectly? If you don't, then that clearly means you voted in this list not knowing A THING of "unique" voices...

Kyo has absolutely the most amazing vocal range of any human being the world! I don't think there is anyone that can compete with him! KYO FOR THE WIN! - madameRed


163 Kim Junsu

His voice totally unique! His dolphin-voice really cute. He can sing very well. Love You KIM JUNSU

If you ever list to him, will know why his voice so amazing, just as air to fill fully of every breath of yours, so tender but also so strong to cover every corner of the space, he is amazing.

Such a captivating, unusual voice. The lightness of his timbre is balanced by a underlying huskiness that never fails to impress my senses. The vibrato, the raspy tone that he easily produces, the breathiness... This complex but pure voice is addictive and completely unique. Surprised that he wasn't already on this list.

His voice is so powerful and beautiful

164 Adam Gontier Adam Gontier Adam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.

How in hell is Adam Gontier 118th? He should be #1! His voice is truly unique and combined with actual capability to sing, I think he has one of the best voices of our time.

Adam has one of the best voices today.. His range is amazing for a guy singer (just look up his cover of Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri), and he's able to add a raspy growl to his voice on command. Whenever I hear him I get chills.

Don't know how you retards vote or on what basis but when it's about real deal he sings high in that creaky or grit voice which is why Adams's Adam, non of the singers could copy the singing style of his neither the old legendary bands. He used to give goosebumps to the current bands till he was in TDG... No competition for Gontier"_i_"

I love this guy's voice. The way he sings is just incredible. He can go from screaming or singing gently. God I just love Adam's voice.

166 Tupac Shakur Tupac Shakur Tupac Amaru Shakur, also known as 2Pac, was an American rapper and actor born on June 16, 1971 in East Harlem, New York. Tupac sold over 75 million records worldwide and has been referred to in multiple major publications such as Rolling Stone as one of the greatest music artists of all time. 2Pac was more.

Tupac Shakur was arguably the greatest rap artist ever. After he died he still had more than ten albums yet to be released. It was said that he could use the bathroom and come out with three new songs. When you heard one of his songs you knew it was him because of his powerful lyrics and distinctive voice.

His voice is very recognizable. You always know it 2pac when you hear his voice. Great lyrics, story telling, rhymes, and voice. This man is influential too.

No ones voice comes close unique lyrics, sound and fluent talent. - laredo1loco13

Man, It's just something about his deep gut filled voice that makes you get chills. I absolutely love Tupac, he's one of the BEST rappers even til this day! R.I. P ;-)

167 Katy Perry Katy Perry Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (Katy Perry) was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. Katy Perry is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. more.

Katy really has one of the most recognizable voices in the industry. Her voice has this unique tone to it which is really nice sounding. Her pitch is almost always perfect

Katy really has a unique voice, unlike Gaga Madonna and Xtina who shouldn't be in this list cause their voices sound alike, and Katy really sounds good when her voice is warmed and prepared before a performance she's amazing such a shame some people can't recognize her talent.

I'm so sorry to say that but where are katy cats to vote for their queen

Just 0.1? Is it true? Am I right?

I think something go wrong here because katy cats are the best fandom for ever

Katy! I love you more than you can imagine

Take care of yourself my queen

Even if you don't like her, she doesn't sound like all the other pop queens

168 Ellie Goulding Ellie Goulding Elena Jane "Ellie" Goulding is an British singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, born on December 30th, 1986 in Hereford, England . She is most well-known in the U .S. for her singles "Lights," "Love Me Like You Do," "Burn," and has been featured in other songs with Calvin Harris and others . more.

Remember, this is a list for most UNIQUE voices. Something that transcends genres altogether. Sure, many people know Ellie Goulding for her hit song, "Lights", so many see her as just another pop artist using electronics and stuff like that. But, listen to her other songs and even her acoustic stuff. You can really see the beauty in her voice. It's very raspy and even sounds hard to control sometimes, which she says it really is. Her beautiful soprano notes with thrilling ups and downs with that raspiness is what makes Ellie Goulding one of the most Unique Singers. And I'm not saying Top 10 anything; But she certainly deserve to be up much higher.

Come on people, this is about the most UNIQUE singing voice! Have you heard Ellie Goulding? Sure she isn't the best singer, but hear how unique her voice is, and it's not autotune! She literally has a voice that no one else can do! Rock on Ellie!

Unique voice ever, very original and she brings the song very emotional

She has the most unique voice- it's very distinctive and easy to recognise!

169 Alanis Morissette Alanis Morissette

I don't know about number one but there is utterly no excuse for her not being in the top 50. Yes, she has a unique voice and is the type of singer who should be high on this list. Honestly, she should be higher than Freddie Mercury, and I am a huge Queen fan. But again, people are ignoring the category.

I think singers like Alanis are who the architect of this list had in mind. Unfortunately we're dealing with the usual Top Ten posters that ignore what the list is supposed to be and throw the same old people on so this looks like every other list.

This girl has the most unique voice.I'm surpised she's not number one.

171 Tori Amos Tori Amos

She's a goddess. Her voice just brings so many different and powerful emotions whenever she sings.

I honestly don't know why she wasn't on this list in the first place... It baffles me honestly.

Why wasn't she put on the list earlier? Shame that many people don't pay attention to Tori's music...

172 Simon Le Bon

Simon has a very distinct voice that has matured over the years. I can't imagine a different lead singer for my favorite band of all time!

173 Brian Molko

It's to difficult to find words to express my feelings for Brian! His voice is definitely unique, incrediblly deep and unforgetable! No one singer have voice that makes shiver down my spine, but Brian has. You know, Brian, Russia loves you! And can't wait to see you again

Placebo would not have been half as good as they are now without the so recognizable and amazing voice that Brian Molko possesses.

He has a strong and really unforgetable voice, no one has a similiar one =))

I have never heard another voice like his, any song with his singing voice is instantly recognisable. its like marmite, some people find it too nasally but I love it.
