While listening to Slash play guitar your avatar just about makes sense. Just about.

Hey! I like rock! And there are some very rocky Radiohead tracks, I'll have you know!

Now that's comedy. The "I'll have you know" just screams "ROCK".

Do you think rock fans all communicate like troglodytes? What has my lexicon got to do with my taste in music?

Yes, sorry I've been away from the forums for a while, but the close date shall be....

Right then, ladies first (neither list in order of preference):

Kate Bush - if ever a female vocal came close to aural eroticism its the "come on angel, come on come on darlin'" phrase from Running Up That Hill
Maria McKee - Poor Maria will probably never get past that awful Days of Thunder song, but to write her off based on this is to miss one of the finest voices in recent years.  Whether its her new country rocking with Lone Justice (check out East of Eden or Dixie Storms), her earlier solo work (Breathe is simply beautiful, Drinkin' In My Sunday Dress retains her country roots) or the later work that Youth produced (highlight - The Sweetest Child), Ms McKee is definitely worth checking out
Aretha - 'nuff said!
Tori Amos - You can almost taste the bitterness in her performance on Silent All These Years "What's so amazing about really deep thoughts? Boy you'd better pray that I bleed real soon - how's that thought for you?"  She's not afraid to take songs to very different places - just check out her Strange Little Girls album of covers, particulary Modern Day Bonnie & Clyde and I Don't Like Mondays
Etta James- would you like that slice of fried gold dipped in honey?  I've just the thing
Natalie Merchant - because she dedicated A Campfire Song to me when I saw 10,000 Maniacs in or around '88

And the blokes:

Otis Redding - can't believe it took nearly 30 posts in this thread before Otis got a mention!  Just check out the raw emotion on songs like I've Been Lovin' You Too Long or A Change is Gonna Come
Sam Cooke - see above
Robert Plant - because Led Zepp were earth-shakingly mighty and he was the hoarse foreman of the apocalypse!
Greg Dulli - nobody does sleaze like our Greg - listen to anything from Gentlemen or Black Love
Thom Yorke - Listen to Exit Music then tell me he doesn't deserve a place on this list - I dare you!
Jonsi - one of the benefits of speaking neither Icelandic or Sigur Ros' made-up language is that you can simply enjoy the vocal performance for what it is.  And in this case, what it is is a thing of ethereral beauty.

That'll do for now.  I may revise at several stages before the 31st deadline!

Absolutely. Dulli with the horn (Going To Town, Something Hot, 66, On The Corner) is a joy to behold. Mind, he can also melt hearts when he wants to - see Let Me Lie To You, Crime Scene Part One, Faded, Martin Eden, and the emotionally devastating Candy Cane Crawl.
I wish I was him.

I'm expecting Kate Bush to do well, what with I know of the forum's music taste! And I'd love Cooke to reach the top fifteen, his voice is incredible.

I'm about halfway through my list, but having just moved house it's fallen down my list of priorities at the moment. Will do my best to get it in before next weekend.

Much as I love loads of the singers mentioned in this thread, I really can't see past Mark Eitzel. Saw him live again recently and he's still finding new ways to break my heart singing songs I first heard nearly 20 years ago. Especially this one*:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDj3l5uak7U

*To anyone unfamilliar with American Music Club and the unique personality of Eitzel, this may appear to be the confused ramblings of a cheerful tramp for the first minute or so. But seriously, wait 'til he starts singing. Magical.

Got it, thanks!

Number 25 is fantastic - I hope he does well.

I hope some of the Phil Spector era voices do well - Darlene Love in particular.
