Title: "Good" Voices That You Hate Regardless.
Post by: ducktrapper on November 17, 2006, 05:20:11 PM
In keeping with the other thread. Other than the obvious like Celine Dion, who else? I'll start. People who can carry a tune but you wish they'd do it elsewhere.
 
Meatloaf
Mariah Carey
Graham Nash

Tony Rice  (not hate but it just doesn't do anything for me, I guess tone-wise??)  (Love his pickin')

Any female singer who's referred to as a "diva."  The way they wail up and down on notes sounds like they're being tortured.

There are plenty of male singers that do the same thing and they are just as bd as the "divas".  Ex:  Anyone that is or was in N'Sync, 98░, Backstreet Boys...any of those crappy boy bands.

What? refusing to name names?

Stephen Tyler - definitely a "diva"
John Denver - pleasant enough but I HATE pleasant.
The guy with Uriah Heep
Charlie Pride - He does NOT sound like Hank!!!
Axel Rose - Although I love the irony of "Chinese Democracy". If it's on purpose, he's a genius.

yep.  if anyone is referred to as a "diva" i no longer take them seriously. 

imo, there areant really many good singers in pop music. just great bodies backed by pro tools.

I hear shes a genius but I never like Joni Mitchells voice. I also feel the same way about Barbara Striesand. For males never cared for Robert Plants voice. Patrick

John Mayer...I don't even know if he's good or bad, can't understand a word he says.
Marbles in his mouth??  The new look (VW commercial) is grotesque, too.

 :ph34r:

All the christina aguilara type vocalists who raise and lower their voice rapidly while singing a note(s).  I guess it's an R&B influence on singing that is very upsetting to me.


Title: Re: "Good" Voices That You Hate Regardless.
Post by: greenremedy on November 27, 2006, 05:12:37 PM
Ha! I'd say that John mayer has a bad voice, if anything. Its chalky and rough. But I like his music regardless.


Title: Re: "Good" Voices That You Hate Regardless.
Post by: aaronjnoone on November 27, 2006, 08:23:19 PM
Yeah, John Mayer does that "whisper in to the microphone" singing style. Jack Johnson does the same thing. I say, sound off like you got a pair or please stop "singing".

+1 for the douchebags that load up every note with so called 'vocal chops'. It's annoying.

I am a proud Canadian, and I absolutely hate, deteste, loathe Celine Dion.  Sorry was that too harsh?  Her stuff are actually okay... ...for me to poop on!!!! :nanadance :nana_guitar :nanadance

Yes, that WAS a little harsh... but sometimes harsh words are justifiable  :cheers

Celine Dion's voice is very true to pitch and she is widely recognized as being very musically talented.

...but it doesn't make her voice any less annoying to my ears  :arrow

 :+1: for the dislike of celine dion bandwagon. Then again i guess Denis did say "other than the obvious" when he started the thread.

Aboss

Hey Calvin, don't you dare talk bad about our CÚlyne! J/K :arrow

She sings very differently in french than in english. In english it sounds like she sings from the nose. :tongue: But in both languages, her tendency to show off what she's able to do is unbearable. She'd be so much better if she learned to refrain from the "voice theatrics". But then there's the repertoire. :rolleyes:

One voice I can't stand: Dave Matthews.

 :+1: He's got some nifty riffs, though.

Or that guy from Five for Fighting, he sings like Dave Matthews, except worse.

yeah, the guy from 'five for fighting' sounds like farts from a good singer after eating greasy tacos.  truly terrible stuff.  i feel the same about dear ol' dave matthews.  plus, i dont relate to any of their music. sounds way too polished and packaged for they easy consumption of the college brat crowd. 

john mayer has some good chops, but his voice is mediocre, at best.  even though he can play, i just cant take him seriously. 

but...... IMO...... the most annoying singer alive today in popular music today is vince gill.  whoever signed him in the beginning should be banned from the music business.  he, like mayer, can play the hell out of a guitar, but please....someone hide the mics from him.  i'd rather listen to elephants mate and dogs vomit than hear this guy sing one note.

Exactly, that's all it is too her, a performance.  You don't see her anywhere else.  In slang: it's like, did she do like any interviews? EVER?  It's her attitude towards music that sux.  She is a vocalist, genetic luck, not an artist.

Dave Matthew's voice suck (even DMB fans like me admitts that, hahaha)!!! I like his music though.  It's like beer.  First time I had beer, I was like "that it? what's the hype? this stuff is so gross and bitter".  Next thing you know...  :cheers

Leo Kottke anyone? Hes my hero but he needs to stick to instrumentals. At least he admits that he thinks his own voice sounds like a "flock of geese" overhead. I think thats slightly, yet not overly exaggerated.

Joel

I think Leo refers to his voice as sounding like "goose farts on a foggy day".

Bob Dylan over the last five years.

It sounds like we're listening to an old gnarly leprachaun and he's p***ed  off about it.

I remember back when Roy Clark, who was an astonishing picker, took to wearing flashy bell-bottoms and one of those huge floppy pimp-hats, and not even playing his guitar any longer...ludicrous!

The most annoying thing to me is when I hear something on the radio that has obviously been absolutely drenching in digital pitch correction...I can hear the damn thing notching...makes me want to hurl.

Post by: canoe65 on February 09, 2007, 08:48:50 PM
Some of my picks:

- Michael Bolton
- Enya
- Cher
- Harry Connick Jr.

"john mayer has some good chops, but his voice is mediocre, at best.  even though he can play, i just cant take him seriously. "


john mayer also looks like he is in a lot of pain while he's playing.... like some of the 'divas' do while they're singing

I don't know that Bob Dylan EVER had what could be considered a "good" voice, though. Just my $0.02.

In my mind, I have a good voice.  When I listen to the recording...I hate it.

Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion, Cher, Michael Bolton, & Elton John come to mind.
