Distinctive, sending shivers down my spine, making me swoon, number one ONLY could be...
Next, distinctive, with some shivers (used to be more before Neil)...
Distinctive voices that twitch my ears the right way, and can at times, cause shivers in their delivery of song...
Bruce Springsteen (although when I first heard him in the late 70's, I hated his voice. It grew on me.)
Neil Diamond (Have you seen "Saving Silverman"?
Grace Slick (Although I don't care for her politics)
Keith Green (He was a friend of mine and I miss him terribly - RIP)
Weird Al Yankovic (Okay, so he's not great on the ears, but he's funny! - and that makes up for it)
Voices that are distinctive, that I am learning to tolerate much more...
Elvis Presley (I'm sorry)
Tim Finn (Please forgive me. I like him much better when he harmonizes, rather than singing lead vocal. Otherwise he's fine. Sometimes it feels like he's working too hard to hit some notes and that's what repels my audio sensibilities. I DO think he's talented.)
Voices that are distinctive, that don't do anything to me, one way or the other...
Voices, I'm not sure how I feel about them, they are just "interesting"...
Voices that are distinctive, that I can barely tolerate...
Richard Thompson (He almost was in the bottom category, but he's moving up.... slowly)
Voices that are distinctive, that I have no tolerance for, whatsoever...
Melissa Etheridge (I used to like her, but she's gotten on my nerves - BIG TIME!. She's a female Springsteen wannabe IMHO)
If I've forgotten someone, I'll just edit and add it. (So, if you actually care, you could check back.) These are voices that, if I hear them on the radio, they stand right out and I know, that's them ; whether I like them or not.
