What they all do is not what I would listen to every day, but I know most of their stuff.

Mariah has something like 5 octaves, it's crazy. Her voice can be so pure, it's amazing. Her highest notes are absolutely crazy, but she uses them too much. I think of those singers, she's the best (technically, and maybe musically; they're all average/mediocre though, as a whole).


But there should be an "other" option:

Björk: my goodness, THOSE shouts she can do. The emotion and subtle things she can do with it. The best female singer of all time, in my opinion (music + voice + everything).
(well, there is an obvious manipulation on her voice, "drowning it", but the shouts are real.)
(the part where she sings "who would have known?, during the musical bridge)

Her singing skills arenn't as as technical as those "divas", but they come from deep within, they are special for how they are used.


Kate Bush: It's a bit like Björk. It's not hugely technical, but it's more for how it is used. How she creates unlimited sounds with her voice. She is probably the singer with the biggest range of effects made with the voice alone, there is so much variation to it.

(extremely high-pitched through the whole song)
(there's probably everything you need to know in this song alone! How she goes from "Some say that knowledge is something that you never have" to "I must admit, just when I think I'm king")
(I love how she uses that relatively low voice like she's pinching her nose; hear what I mean (like the "Many an Aborigine's mistaken for a tree" line)? It's also one of her signature singing skills.)

Very versatile.



I have to say, I don't care if the voice isn't "perfect", as long as you know what to do with it. And those two singers prove it (even if their natural voices are both fantastic naturally). Because, see, all those divas often do not know what to do with it, and become boring because they know they have immense skills, so they just become lazy. Just dare!

stupid poll, those are singers who perform an act and just sing.

Saw Kate Bush and Bjork 2 posts above and they're much better options. Also read votes for Annie Lennox, Aretha Franklin and Tori Amos which also makes much more sense. Wanna add PJ Harvey to the poll. Skin from Skunk Anansie has a great voice too ! I also like Sade btw

I'd go with Whitney Houston at her peak. Alicia Keys misses a lot of notes and I am surprised that she is even an option. Also, a lot of important figures are not even listed as a poll option.
