You've got great taste in music. Never got into Rush at all, but these are some of my favorites as well.

Haha, yeah, my old boss says the same thing. I just can't get into Geddy Lee's voice. Great musicians, just his voice that puts me off.

"What about the voice of Geddy Lee
How did it get so high?
I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy?"


But back to the topic at hand: Tom Waits is probably my favorite singer. Followed by Nick Cave.

chris cornell-soundgarden
Freddie mercury- queen (man will always be a legend and will never be matched)
steven malkmus- pavement (the ironic thing is that I think that he never really learned to sing)
jon Anderson- Yes (his voice provides for so many epic moments, really takes you away and matches the music to a tee)
frank black- the pixies
H.R- bad brains (although that might be described more as frantic yelling)
fred Schneider- the b52s (guy just sounds like an overly-excited gay man and I love it. Dude just sounds like he has so much fun)
Michael Stipe- REM

when it comes to vocals, I suppose I go for the unique and unconventional singers. I want to go for the singers that nobody can truly imitate.

My dad actually said he felt the same thing about Geddy Lee when he first heard rush. He said it was too high pitched and it was too similar sounding to Robert Plant. I'd like to think that his vocals got way better as his career progressed though.

I can definitely see where you're coming from. It all just comes down to execution, and a majority of these singers (can't judge all of them because I haven't a lot of some of these bands) do it just masterfully.

On another note, I regret forgetting to put in Thom Yorke. *facepalms into the abyss*

i probably dislike Thom yorke singing for the same reason that i don't like the singing of J. Mascis from Dinosaur Jr. When i listen to both of them, i just get the feeling of them portraying exaggerated senses of melancholy. J mascis sounds like an old guy dying of cancer and Thom Yorke sounds like he is literally crying himself to sleep. Really makes for a boring experience in my opinion.

Just as an observation, I've noticed that a majority of your musical taste lies within the progressive/hard rock bands of the 70s with the exception of a band like simon and Garfunkel from the 60s and radiohead from the 90s. Now, I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with these bands (FAR FROM IT). However, would it be apt to say that you have a particular favorability toward a certain musical decade over another in this case? Nothing wrong with progressive and classic rock, but I'd wonder if the concentration of artists from this particular decade in particular reveals the lack of exposure you might have with other acts. You may be aware of this, and it may just be that it just happens to be that way because all your favorite bands are from that decade (it isn't like you can control that). But I was wondering if you could think of any musical acts that you may enjoy from other musical decades if you can think of any. What other musical genres do you like and such as well?

Can't comment on Mascis, but of course I disagree with you on Yorke (which is fine, of course, DUH!!) I do feel like his singing is natural and really works with the music, forming a part of the classic Radiohead sound we know of today (and for me, personally, we're better off with it than without it).
