1 - Sinatra (#5 voice, but when you add in the swag points) . . .

2 - Sammy Davis, Jr. (GOAT, pound for pound)

3 - Bruno Mars (2nd GOAT - can do it all)

4 - Pavarotti - best pipes, but cannot get over the accent when singing in English)

5 - Phillip Bailey - best falsetto ever.

6 - Sir James Paul McCartney - the voice of a generation and surprising range. Learned a lot from Billy Preston.

7 - Joe Williams - No one did Big Band & Jazz better

8 - Tony Bennett - cocaine ravaged his voice, but still great.

9 - Luther Vandross - smooth as silk

10 - J.R. "Johnny" Cash - iconic voice.



Luv me some Bruno Mars

My List would probably be:

Al Green
Nat King Cole
Mercury
Billy Joel

Some reason, I'm a sucker for Michael Crawford.

Not into Opera so I'll remain silent on Pavarotti and Bocelli.

Speaking of "favorite" voices rather than technically great voices, one voice not mentioned yet is Peter Gabriel.
