Best Singers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 11

201 Luciano Pavarotti Luciano Pavarotti Luciano Pavarotti, Cavaliere di Gran Croce was an Italian operatic tenor who also crossed over into popular music, eventually becoming one of the most commercially successful tenors of all time.

What does Pavarotti not have in common with all these other people? (I won't even say "vocalists" because it's debatable whether some on this list have even earned the right to be called that. ) You might say "He's an opera singer" but more importantly - he's the only one who could be placed in front of a group of instrumentalists playing, without a mic, and still stand a chance at making an impression on an audience. And it should be mentioned that to seriously compare him to most of these people, is like comparing a thorough-bred grand national race horse to a pack of mongrel dogs - the prestige and intensity of his consistent vocal training from a young age cannot even begin to be rivaled by this lot!

Who actually believes Pavarotti is inferior to Justin Bieber as a vocalist and performer (unless you're a 12 year old girl)? I don't see how this list can be taken seriously. I'd like to see the singers on this list attempt Ave Maria, and laugh at the fools they'd make of themselves (ex: Beyonce's rendition was pathetic despite her talent, modernizing a classic compromises the artistic quality of the performer as well as the performance). Half these names will be forgotten in ten years, if anyone had even heard of them in the first place, however the King of the High C's will never be forgotten.

How can Luciano Pavarotti be at number 67? That's a disgrace. How many people have the power to bring a man to tears by the sheer magnitude of his voice. It is sad how under appreciated opera is. - daynah

Its absolutely hilarious that the 11-year olds who are the majority here on TTT have no idea who this man is.

202 Mohammed Rafi Mohammed Rafi

He was simply the Greatest Ever. I am yet to hear a voice which is so pure and pristine. He could convey many emotions with so much ease and dexterity.

Just can't believe a singer who has sung for almost four decades and stays in one's heart forever has been ignored here. I won't classify him as one or two. He was the greatest of all. - y2lee

In high pitched songs no one can reach those heights, most versatile, he could sing melodies, classical, semi classical, bhajans, gazals, qawalies, rock and roll...

He deserve the position in between top 10 of best singer's list of the world.

203 Sonu Nigam Sonu Nigam

Best singer ever in India but I can't believe that he is ranked below Mika. Please vote for him wisely. He deserve at least in top 50.

The versatile and best singer in India. He has all the potential for any type of singing in all Indian language and English too. Able to sing any type of song able to sing in different voice uniquely. The most deserving voice from India and very popular among all music lover around the world.

He is God of singing. He is best not in India all over the world. He can sing any kind of song in any language. Who understand Hindi little bit they knows his quality. He has all qualities to be best all time.

He should be rank one.. because he can sing everything... Which other top ranked singers can't sing... He is the sensation of singing... And the living legend

204 Liam Gallagher Liam Gallagher William John Paul "Liam" Gallagher is an English musician, singer, and songwriter. He rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady Eye.

How is Zak Efron higher on this list than Liam Gallagher? He was the voice of the 90's with Oasis and his Beady Eye tunes are epic as well... Ever heard of Wonderwall, Supersonic, Champagne Supernova? Those were just the tip of the iceberg- there is a mountain of Liam-sung B-sides, album songs and singles that blow any other band or singer out of the window. How can someone who's band has scored 8 UK number one singles and 8 number one albums be at #598? He's been voted the best frontman of all time in several polls, and his band Oasis had sold over 70 million records worldwide by the time they split up in 2009. This list is a joke.

Such a talent. He has the look, the attitude and the voice. He made British indie music what it is today with his amazing vocals. He and his brother were part of one of the greatest bands in recent history. Should be higher on this list, god only knows how some of the singers on this list are in top 10.

Why is he all the way down here crappier singers made it at the top of the list this is bull crap. Liam deserves to be at at least 20 or 30

I love his voice

206 Dean Martin Dean Martin

Dean martin has on numerous occasions been voted best male vocals of all time, to put him at 214 just shows the creators of this list don't know what there talking about.

He should be top 3 easily but the creators of the list do not decide.. The people do, that's why we get to vote. - guyritchi

Dean Martin is by far the one of the best singers of all time. I m very dissapointed that he only made 190. He should have been with Frank Sinatra in the top 10.

Are you guys kidding not on this list what an amazing voice, Frank Sinatra stated he was the strongest voice of his era.

The King of Cool! #1 entertainer, crooner, swagger, coolness in its right definition!
Enough said!

207 Bing Crosby Bing Crosby Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby, Jr. was an American singer and actor. Crosby's trademark warm bass-baritone voice made him the best-selling recording artist of the 20th century, having sold over one billion records, tapes, compact discs and digital downloads around the world.

No one can top Bing Crosby as far as I'm concerned. He didn't even have to have music when he sang for it to be beautiful, that is a true God given gift. Even his whistle was beautiful. There has been no one born in this world today that could come close to sound like him and there never will.

I think Bing Crosby has the most beautiful voice of all time. I don't know how he could be so low a number as 168. Even his speaking voice was unique. You can judge someone unless you lived their life.

Bing holds the record for the most number of records sold and the longest to stay in the top charts. Elvis comes in a distant second.

208 Alice Cooper Alice Cooper Alice Cooper is an American singer, songwriter, musician and occasional actor whose career spans over five decades.

How are most of the modern singers are higher than this legend?! His music is awesome and a little bit like twisted sister but WAY more awesome. The original shock rocker is the BEST! This rebel/goth does very shocking things onstage which makes him more cooler and amazing at the same time. Best songs include: Schools out (awesome song), Poison (music video is good), I love the dead (song about necrophilia), Triggerman (quiet good), You and me (romantic song), I'm 18, Some folks (LOVE this song although not my favourite song), Halo of flies (reminds me of a western movie), All from along came a spider (awesome album one of his later ones), Nearly all of his albums and my most favourite WELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE!

Before there was Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, or even Kiss, the original shock rocker Alice Cooper was scaring audiences with his trademark theatrics. Pushing the age of 60, Cooper is still around recording albums and touring. He might not have the greatest vocal range, but Cooper is an underrated singer who still sounds as powerful today as he did almost forty years ago. His recent albums have proven Alice's voice is still strong and won't be retiring anytime soon.

I really can't understand what goes through some of these retards heads. Michael Jackson are you kidding he has one range and that's "He He". WHAT THE HELL MOST OF THE PEOPLE IN FRONT OF ALICE can't EVEN SING! ALICE CAN USE HIS ROCK VOICE AND USE A PERFECT VOICE THAT IS BETTER THAN SOME PLASTIC FREAK OF NATURE. I'm sorry that he died but that doesn't mean he's the best singer now, so please take your heads out of your butt holes so you can hear good music.

Original horror rocker, a legend. Seems to have a huge sense of humour. And he has done some really good songs so: teenage lament 74, I'm 18, under my wheels.The list goes on and on - ChatonNoir

Musical genius.

Have you heard his vocal range? No brainer.

By far one of the most talented singers currently, he is one of the few people who has a vocal range of 5 octaves and can switch from screaming to singling like that. he also is the best live performer I have ever heard. he should be in the top ten.
