What singers are you obsessed with?
« on: February 25, 2012, 09:34:37 am »
Does anyone here like Simon & Garfunkel?
I've been obsessed with them for almost three years straight.  :blush-fox:
They inspire not only in art,but in life its self.

I love Simon & Garfunkel
Sounds of Silence and Bookends are 2 amazing albums.


My favorite singer/songwriter would have to be Tom Waits. He is flat out fantastic and has a very unique voice in his later material (thanks to lot's and lot's of cigarettes) it actually sounds like he gargled anti-freeze and motor oil or something. Which gives a very haunting sound and sometimes beautiful sound to his later junkyard blues work.

However, I am very very fond of his earlier work, it's heartbreaking.

I'm also a fan of Elliot Smith, Bob Dylan and a later artist I love would be Sufjan Stevens

I'll check him out sometime,Bob Dylan is splendid; his lyrics are very straight forward. Nice to see another Simon & Garfunkel fan around here.

I like Michael Buble because I'm an obsessive teenage girl :U
Idk, I just loooove his voice. People always laugh at me for it because it's not my kind of music at all =P

I am also going through a Gotye obsession

I'm obsessed with Judith Holofernes from "Wir Sind Helden" - she's got such an amazing voice provided you don't mind her singing in German
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVkC47zKQWc&ob=av2e

Also Kate Rusby, a Yorkshire lass with a truly amazing voice.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVkC47zKQWc&ob=av2e

Chris Martain(from Coldplay) has a brilliant voice that pulls off a lot of songs in a very powerful way. I have not seen anyone (so far) pull off songs like he can.

Also I like Sergio's singing in Me Plus One by Kasabian

I almost forgot about Brandon Flowers, he is one of my favourite singers of all time, I will always love The Killers.

Coldplay is wonderful! I love their new album, they're older stuff was,too; Viva la Vida is a modern classic. I like the Killers,too; I remember listening to them quite a bit a year or so ago.

Myself ._.

Just kidding, I like listening to Jay Brennen, Tegan and Sara, Mika and Hedwig and the angry inch. I move toward folk, rock, and opera :P

But seriously, I do have a pretty awesome voice...

You're a singer/musician? Oh and awesome,I love folk/rock,especially when combined. The genres work well together in my opinion if done correct.

I'm obsessed with old music, I know right; that's how I feel,I see all these fans all over the internet and wonder where they're at in my real life surroundings.

Nat King Cole, his music makes me smile.

Frank Sinatra, I just can't help but sing along.

And the wonderful Tony Bennett with his beautiful voice.

I like Michael Buble because I'm an obsessive teenage girl :U
Idk, I just loooove his voice. People always laugh at me for it because it's not my kind of music at all =P


Michael did a great cover of Sinatra's "Come Fly With Me"

Buddy Holly! I'm sorry, but I have a STRONG dislike for Elvis. In my humble opinion, Buddy Holly was a great singer and guitarist! I think "Oh Boy!" is a lot more catchier than "Blue Suede Shoes" because Buddy Holly's voice is really distinguishable and gets stuck in your head.

I like both Buddy and Elvis. Buddy did have more of a "beat" to his music(Makes sense..). Elvis was more "slow dance" stuff as I call it.

The whole band of Fleetwood Mac and their music in my opinion is great
