Its a tough call...Nat King Cole.....I like Harry Connick as well
I love listening to Sinatra but I'll tell ya what! Listening to Michael Buble croon is dang close to magic. He's definitely pushin' Frank
That would depend on the music, the song and the singer. I also like Dean Martin, Sammy Davis. Heavens I do believe I am naming the so called 60s 'Rat Pack' That of course also included Frank Sintra. To me, one of the greatest singers, overlooked totally because of his race was Nat King Cole. Another great singer is Perry Como.
Anyone think Michael Bublé in some ways sounds like a modern Franky?
Sinatra was good at what he did, but to me, not the best voice ever. How about Josh Groban, Nat King Cole, Freddie Mercury, Jim Reeves, Johnny Horton, Marvin Gaye . . .
Too many to choose!
Bing? Elvis, the rest of the rat pack... I think you'll find as many opinions as there are people.
I'd have to throw Ray Charles in there too. But I have to admit Frank had a special appeal to the ladies throughout and beyond his active recording period. Seems to be universal.
You can't go past "Old Blue Eyes" in my book. Even in his death he is still remembered. Although Harry Connick Jnr sounds so like him when he sings. His music is still played at parties and musical evenings to this day.I still watch his movies when they come up on Foxtel channels. I just think he was great. BB
The "crooner" style of singing does nothing for me at all, so my only reply can be, "no comment"
Personally, of the singers of that era, I think Dean Martin was the best.
I agree, I really like frank sinatra - but I have to say Dean Martin always sounded smoother to me.
Lou Rawls has a fantastic voice as well.
His voice was one of many...Michael Buble is close on his heels and has a refreshing tone
Mel Tormé, the velvet fog.
Music's not a competition but Sinatra was a great singer. So are others.
It doesn't matter if Frank Sinatra didn't have the greatest voice - he was the greatest singer of the 20the century no holds barred.(whatever that means)
Well, that seems a bit more like an opinion than a fact, all due respect. But on a personal basis, he's right up there in my book as well.
This was mentioned, but not elaborated on: it really needs to be categorized by genre or style. Crooners were a dime a dozen through most of the 20th century, and now the style has migrated and evolved quite a bit. Sinatra was definitely one of the best crooners. Best vocalist of all time is a hard thing to pin down. Stats like record sales could help determine that, perhaps.
