Wonderful singer, dancer, songwriter, record producer, philanthropist etc. Her voice is unique and really recognizable - Irina2932

I'm in a room with seven other people and nobody can name one Shakira song! We can however name at least one song for everyone else on the list. So my question is why is Shakira #1 on the most recognizable song list?

Such a uniquely talented voice. She should definitely make a come back!

Every time I hear her voice I know its her

Gerard Way's voice is incredible and you can tell when it is him or not. I remember when I fist started listening to My Chemical Romance and his solo album, Hesitant Alien, I didn't know many songs and I only heard a few of them, but when I was on Pandora or something like that and an My Chemical Romance song came up, even though I never heard the song before, I could tell that it was an My Chemical Romance song because I would recognize the voice. His voice is very unique and incredible and I highly doubt that anyone could sing like him.

Truly unique voice that I could recognize immediately anywhere!

39 Kenny Loggins

Some great movie hits in the 80's, Very powerful voice... I guess he just cut footloose!
