Lots of good names have already been mentioned....so, Here's a few of my favs...I lost my first reply, so I hope I remember them all:
Janis Joplin - "Ball and Chain"
Ray Charles - "Georgia On My Mind"
Stevie Wonder - "I Just Called To Say I Love You"
Justin Hawkins (The Darkness) - "I Believe in a Thing Called Love"
Diana Krall - "The Look of Love"
Steven Tyler - "Dream On"
James Taylor - "Something in the Way She Moves"
Simon & Garfunkel - "Boxer"
Doug Martinez & Nick Hexum (311) - "Amber"
Maria Callas - "L'Amour Est Un Oiseau Rebelle"
Niel Young - "Heart of Gold"
I like all of these for their vocal peformances....either they're just truly stunning (Maria Callas, Janis Joplin), you can just tell that the words
have worn heavy on their hearts (Niel Young, James Taylor), and/or they just plain sound awesome (The Darkness, 311). I could go on for days with
other songs I love the vocals to, but this will do for now
