Top Ten Songs With the Most Impressive Vocals


The Contenders: Page 3

41 The Weight - The Band and the Staples Singers

I think you are confused about who performed this song.

Who are you, and no, I'm not at all confused, though apparently you are or have no appropriate words to voice subjective disagreement - Billyv

42 Time to Say Goodbye - Sarah Brightman
43 Path of Glory - Demons & Wizards

On every list I see the same situation - the most popular vs really the best. Hansi Kürsch isn't as popular as John Lennon, Mick Jagger, Ozzy, Axl Rose, etc., but he's one of the greatest singers of all time. Even if you have never heard of him, he is still great because being a great singer is an objective and not subjective feature. Only popularity is subjective but most of us know that most popular doesn't mean the best.

Back to Hansi Kürsch - there are not many singers who have 4 in 1: naturally pleasant voice, power, range and amazing vocal skills. I mean, there are many singers with pleasant voices but they lack power, range and vocal technique.

Give a listen to this song and pay attention to his perfect vocals with perfect switches and transitions: how he starts with very soft melancholy voice, then puts more power and intensity to his vocal, and then blows you mind with that exploding "Yeah, yeah, yeah". Again, not many singers can do both soft and harsh vocals ...more - Metal_Treasure

44 Into the Storm - Blind Guardian
45 Thorn - Blind Guardian
46 The Bard's Song (In the Forest) - Blind Guardian
47 Into the Mystic - Van Morrison
48 Macarthur Park - Richard Harris
49 The Way We Were - Barbra Streisand
50 The Summer Wind - Frank Sinatra
51 Softly, As I Leave You - Frank Sinatra

Old Blue Eyes. He died in 1998, but his last big hit was in 1980, long before most Top Tenners were even a gleam in their papa's eye. Probably 90 percent of TTT users have never even heard of him, and even those that have heard the name have never once heard the greatest musical phrasing by any vocalist of any era.

52 Another Day - Dream Theater
53 Don't Follow - Alice In Chains

This is a very underrated song and one of the best songs of all time in my opinion - Sabbath

54 Mayonaise - Smashing Pumpkins
55 I'll Fight for You - Foreigner
56 Something In the Way She Moves - James Taylor
57 Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight - James Taylor
58 Paradise by the Dashboard Lights - Meatloaf
59 You're a Big Girl Now - Bob Dylan
60 From the Beginning - Emerson, Lake & Palmer
