There's no doubt that Garfunkel had superior range and ability, but Simon's vocals have such a pleasant tone, which hasn't diminished with age. - PetSounds

The most beautiful vocals and lush, wall of sound harmonies of them all!

2 George Harrison George Harrison George Harrison was an English guitarist, singer, songwriter, and music and film producer who achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles.

Perfect vocals always soothe my ears no matter what the singer sings.

Hansi Kürsch is a vocal god - his soft and his harsh voices are equally mindblowing. Most of the time his goal is not to soothe your ears because he sings heavy metal. But when he uses his soft voice he does that better than anybody else. He's the most versatile singer ever.
Soft songs:
Blind Guardian - Miracle Machine, Dream a Little Dream of Me (cover song), The Bard's Song (In the Forest);
Demons & Wizards - Down Where I Am, Seize The Day, Fiddler on the Green, Path Of Glory - Metal_Treasure
