Can't argue

with the top ten entries on Rolling Stone's list of "greatest singers of all time"-

1. Aretha Franklin
2. Ray Charles
3. Elvis Presley
4. Sam Cooke
5. John Lennon
6. Marvin Gaye
7. Bob Dylan
8. Otis Redding
9. Stevie Wonder
10. James Brown

Okay, I can argue a little bit. Bob and John should NOT be ranked higher than Mr. Redding. Period. Or Stevie and J.B.

Amazing lyricists, yes. Better singers than Otis, Stevie or The Hardest Working Man In Show Business? No.
