Top Ten Pairs of Singers with Similar Voices


The Top Ten

1 Dolores O'Riordan and Shakira

The lead singer of The Cranberries has a really similar singing style to Shakira, and sometimes you can't tell much of a difference except for the genre.
"Zombie" by The Cranberries
"Underneath Your Clothes" by Shakira - Martin_Canine

2 Anastacia and Tina Turner

Both have very powerful singing voice that often sounds like there is much pressure on the throat (I'm sure there's a professional term for that)

"Paid My Dues" by Anastacia
"We Don't Need Another Hero" by Tina Turner - Martin_Canine

3 Phil Collins and Eros Ramazotti

One sings English and the other one sings Italian, but both have a very nasal voice that sounds pretty similar.

"In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins
"I Belong To You" by Eros Ramazotti - Martin_Canine

4 Taddl and Ardy

The two lead vocalists (singers and rappers) of DatAdam have extremely similar voices.

On the song "Hydra 3D" by DatAdam, verse 1 is by Taddl and verse 2 by Ardy, but I couldn't tell who is who if I wouldn't know. - Martin_Canine

5 Sixto Rodriguez and Bob Dylan

Also similar genre and both great lyricists.

"Crucify Your Mind" by Rodriguez
"Times They Are A-Changing" by Bob Dylan - Martin_Canine

6 Annette Louisan and Judith Holofernes

German jazz singer Annette Louisan and leas singer of German alternative pop band Wir sind Helden Judith Holofernes both have very high pitched and soft vocals.

"Torsten Schmidt" by Annett Louisan
"Gekommen um zu bleiben" by Wir sind Helden - Martin_Canine

7 Anette Olzon and Jennifer Haben

Maybe due to them singing the same genre, but former Nightwish singer Anette Olzon and Beyond the Black singer Jennifer Haben sound pretty similar to me. Both have unusually pop-rockish vocals for symphonic metal.

"Amaranth" by Nightwish
"Written in Blood" by Beyond the Black - Martin_Canine

8 LaFee and Bill Kaulitz

Before Bill Kaulitz from Tokio Hotel had his puberty voice change, he sounded a lot like female German rock singer LaFee.

"Durch den Monsun" by Tokio Hotel
"Prinzesschen" by LaFee - Martin_Canine

9 Zara Larsson and Rihanna
10 Chris Brown and Taio Cruz

Maybe it is due to me not actively listening to RnB, but most contrmporary RnB singers sound extremely similar to me, especially Taio Cruz and Chris Brown.

"Dynamite" by Taio Cruz
"Right by My Side" by Nicki Minaj & Chris Brown - Martin_Canine

The Contenders

11 David Coverdale and Jørn Lande

Check out these cover versions of Coverdale songs and be convinced:
Jorn - Stormbringer, Burn (Deep Purple covers)
Jorn - Fool for your loving (Whitesnake cover) - Metal_Treasure

12 Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel
13 Joel Madden and Ronnie Radke

Yeah, Ronnie is a bit lower and has more desperation in his voice, but the overall tone of the Falling in Reverse singer and the Good Charlotte singer are pretty similar.

"The Drug in Me Is You" by Falling in Reverse
"The Chronicles of Life and Death" by Good Charlotte - Martin_Canine

14 Bruce Dickinson and Tobias Sammet

Both are metal singers with great tenor voices. Also, Tobias Sammet singing style was influenced very much by Bruce Dickinson. Tobias Sammet voice always reminds me of Bruce Dickinson.
I even made a list - Top 10 Edguy Songs that Could Be on Iron Maiden Albums - Metal_Treasure

15 Jim Morrison and Glenn Danzig

Danzig - Mother, Am I Demon, How The Gods Kill. - Metal_Treasure

16 Rob Halford and Ralf Scheepers

Rob Halford of Judas Priest and Ralf Scheepers of Primal Fear - both are metal singers. Halford is Ralf Scheepers' biggest influence and Ralf Scheepers sounds pretty much like his vocal idol:
Scheepers - Before The Dawn (solo album, 2011)
Primal Fear - Strike, Metal Gods (Judas Priest cover). - Metal_Treasure

17 Matt Barlow and Stu Block

Stu Block replaced Matt Barlow in Iced Earth. I am pretty sure that Stu Block got the job because his voice sounds similar to Matt's voice. - Metal_Treasure

18 Brian Johnson and Mark Tornillo

Brian Johnson of ACDC and Mark Tornillo of Accept. Since everybody knows Brian Johnson and his voice, I am gonna list only Mark Tornillo songs:
Accept - Pandemic, Shades Of Death,Teutonic Terror. - Metal_Treasure

19 Celso Paco and Prince Osito

Celso Pacos voice in Celso Paco & Dynamo De Luxe - "A Xinengana Xa Nwampfundla" is similar to Prince Ositos voice in "Africa".

20 Ian Curtis and Paul Banks
21 Jason Derulo and Usher

I know very few of Usher's songs, and if it weren't for Shazam I'd still think some of Usher's songs were Jason's

22 STING and NEK
