Inspired by the Favorite Cover Songs thread, thought this thread could be interesting. I will start it off with a couple, though there are a few more I shall add to the thread later.


Female... Tarja Turunen



Male... Brandon Flowers

Both great calls. Chino's work on the latest Deftones album is just jaw-dropping.

I'd add Mikael Akerfeldt and Mike Patton to the list.

Myles Kennedy - One of the biggest ranges for a guy in the industry. Used to be in a band out of Spokane called the Mayfield Four, then joined Creed sans Scott Stap and formed Alter Bridge and has worked a bunch with Slash, does some great G&R stuff with him.

Male: Josh Groban.
Female: Sarah Brightman.

Sarah - best known for Phantom of the Opera:


(P.S. Steve Harley is shit compared to Michael Crawford as the Phantom)

Also made some great music on her own:


Josh doing 'Brave'


Both together, though Sarah is a bit past her prime - still got an amazing voice though.

Pre-cracked out Whitney was pretty awesome...but, this kid does an awesome job with it too, and he doesn't even speak English.
0:50 for the start of the song.
2:55 for the "oh damn" part.

This probably belongs in this thread too:

One of the all-time most shocking performances I've ever seen.

This lady has lots of voice but hasn't the "feeling" behind it. Its just music by rote.

Me, I'd take the ones below with a tip of the hat to Celene Dion

Barbara Streisand

Ann Wilson

Neal Diamond in the earlier years

best mens voice ever,,,Mario Lanza

30 seconds of that beat had my heart beat racing...in a creepy, awful sort of way. Interesting voice though.

Jonny Craig has a deep, raspy, soulful voice and applies it to his music in a unique mix of rock and r&b. Check him out.

Totally forgot about Boxcar Willie.

Good call, Donk. Early Boxcar was amazing. Then the fame started going to his head and the song writing got repetitious and lazy. His dark period when he was hooked on trannies and ludes had some good songs, but not an 8 track worth, know what I'm sayin.

Still, for my money the best hobo musician since Anne Murray.

Dolores O'Riordan just haunts me....

My vote for the best range has to go to Robert Plant....simply a god.

Last I heard they were done for a while, and that he wants to finish his solo album he has been trying to get out there for years. I think he would have killed it with Zepplin had that whole thing come to fruition.... sigh.

I'll have to go with Bruce Dickenson from Iron Maiden too, the guy sounds just as good as he did in the 80's and is a heck of a frontman.
