The Greatest Voices Of All Time

A quick scan down Q magazine’s Top 10 Greatest Voices Of All Time shows that, at the very least, they were trying to include someone for everyone and irritate as few people as possible. Until you hit #1 and realize that they took a wrong turn at Graceland.

10. Jeff Buckley
09. Mick Jagger
08. Robert Plant
07. Kurt Cobain
06. Marvin Gaye
05. John Lennon
04. Otis Redding
03. Frank Sinatra
02. Aretha Franklin
01. Elvis Presley

On the flip side, Q offers their choices for the worst singers of all time, too, including Ozzy Osbourne, Mariah Carey, Céline Dion and Yoko Ono. That’s a pretty good start, but no such list is complete without this dude.
