Re: Q 100 Greatest Singers and their favourite songs

Many of my favourites in this list (Smokey Robinson, Rufus Wainwright, Laura Nyro, Harry Nilsson) are ranked between #90 and #100, and I don't really understand why they are so low ranked. In my opinion, they are among the best singers of all-time with Roy Orbison, Sam Cooke or Scott Walker. What does Jack White do in this list ? Can someone explain me why ?

Re: Q 100 Greatest Singers and their favourite songs

weird list. I'm glad to see Thom Yorke and Bob Dylan but what's Axl Rose doing there? He's an unfunny joke. What next, Fred Durst?

There's Also a Worst List...

that went along with this. Anyone have that?

Re: Q 100 Greatest Singers and their favourite songs

there appears to be a lack of consensus on what the actual order is for the "10 Worst Singers of All Time," but here are the names included, possibly in the right order:

Ozzy Osbourne
Fred Durst
Celine Dion
Mariah Carey
Einar Orn Benediktsson
Heather Small
Yoko Ono
Nick Heyward
Bobby Gillespie
Any death metal singer ever


someone had said on another board that there was a top 100 for the worst list, too.

Re: Q 100 Greatest Singers and their favourite songs

Mariah Carey should have been on the greatest list! Love her or hate her, that voice is amazing!
