That's how I feel about Leonard Cohen, Phil Collins and others I can't remember off the top of my head.

Same. And I think they're all good songwriters so their success doesn't baffle me, but...the voices are not the draw.

Bob Dylan

IA, OP. I think he sings without opening his mouth to get that nasal effect.

(Anonymous) 2017-03-20 10:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, one, taste is taste and it'd be a funny old world if we were all the same and etc etc etc

Two, he's very charismatic and an excellent songwriter and those things matter a lot more than technical virtuosity to many people.

Tom Waits?

The point of Tom Waits is his insane voice though.

Different strokes.

Besides, if voice is all you're listening to in a musician, I think you're missing out on some amazing talent in general.

God. Yes. He is awful. The day I moved out of my mom's house when I went to college was the best fucking day of my life because she fucking loves this whiny voiced hack and I knew I would never have to hear it again.

That said, cinnamon girl is surprisingly decent.

I mean, his voice isn't the best, but lol @ anyone seriously thinking Neil Young is a hack.

A southern man don't need him around, anyhow.

Tastes differ.

When I heard Bob Dylan, I thought, "People like this? Seriously?" And, yes, some people do.

I always feel really terrible when there is a musical artist who seems like a really nice person, but their voice just grates on me, so I can't listen to their music.

Bob Dylan was the person who sprung to mind for me - great songwriter, but I just. Hate. His. Voice.

Fortunately for me, a lot of his songs have been covered...

I also have issues with Leonard Cohen's unfortunate 1980s thing for cheap synthesisers, but I do like his voice - though he's another singer people have strong opinions on - so I over look it as best I can.

Ugh, yes. Him and Tom Petty.

I will say, however, that one of my favorite songs is one of his, just not when he sings it.

(Anonymous) 2017-03-21 10:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Bob Dylan is worse, imo. But I get what you mean. I don't understand either.
