    I'm going to have to say Tim McGraw on this one. He just has this voice that really brings you in to the words of his songs.

      I agree he does have a smooth voice.

    It depends on the song. Definately not me, that's for sure. I wish I was born with a natural talent like that. But it's funny how when you write the song you immediately know who should sing it, or at least I do. lol.

      Me too. I have quite a few people in mind when I create the song but those three mentioned first are the main three I hear.

    I hear the whispers of a lover in my ear,the ebb of waves to a rocky shore and the lilt of a blackbird as the day dawns...

    I try to get a basic rhythm to the idea and then write to that - trying to keep it broadly within one of the classic styles, but usually end up in some kind of variation on a sonnet theme.

      Very interesting. Well said. I can relate to that as well.

    I was once actually paid cash to sing both here in America and in the UK.  because of this and my songwriting partnerships in the past, if it is a love song I am co-writing then I hear ME singing it.

        thanks but it was a lot less cool then you think . . . still, it was nice to technically have someone put money in your hand for doing nothing more than standing up and singing . . .

    Sometimes I envision Amy Lee or Imogen Heap singing them. And with one song I wrote, Taylor Swift.

    But normally, I can only see myself singing my songs. It's like hearing someone else recite one of my poems; something just feels off.

      Very interesting and cool.  Liking your own singing is a wonderful feeling.

    Nick Cave, Steve Kilbey, or Elizabeth Fraser, depending on my mood & the tone of the song.

    Some of my favourite love songs are the old ones; Nat King Cole and 'When I Fall in Love', 'Misty' by Johnny Mathis, '... Loving You Too Long' by Otis Redding ... I just melt when I hear them.

    I write a lot of stuff, it pops out my head into a lyrical mess in a notebook. Weeks later for no planned reason I return to it, this time it is placed in order with the tune.

    When ever I write about love or love songs in particular, I hear the average man or women riding in their cars or bathing in the shower singing with passion(but off-key as hell LOL) every lyric i write. As a matter of fact, I'm usually the first one to do it!

    It depends on the song.  I have one song that I wrote that is about youth violence.  that is the type of song i woold want to hear various artists sing. ( A "We are the world" type scenario.) When to love songs "Jennifer Hudson, Jasmine Sullivan, and Maxwell etc.)
