Who has the best singing voice?
« on: August 06, 2007, 06:22:29 AM »

Which Beatle do you honestly think is the best singer? I think I would choose Paul. He has such a beautiful and flexible voice, and always has. He can sing songs like Blackbird and songs like Helter Skelter, he sounds so perfect. It's hard to choose, though! I love all of their voices!

Paul it's so varied , not much double tracking needed with his voice .
But i like all The Beatles voice's for different reasons , John's is dreamy ,George's is full of warmth and Ringo's is like mine ;D

mccartney by a long shot one the reasons i love the beatles is there 3 way harmonising and mccartneys ability to go from extremely low to crazy high in one line is fantastic, he can also change the tone of his voice from song to song and sometimes it sounds like another person especially on some of the splhcb tracks each track has a slightly different sounding tone in his voice, i think ringos is the weakest but what he does he does well he has natural low voice thats quite monotone, georges is decent and improved as they went on and he was always the comfortable middle pitch between mccartneys highs and lennons lows in 3 way harmonising, and lastly lennons is probably the most unique sounding and most recognisable with its raspiness but overall mccartneys is better imo

I think 1962 through Pepper or so it was John - gentle when he sang softly, and as hard a rock voice as any when he "yelled".

After this I kind of think he lost his vocal cords ... some bad combination of too much tobacco, screaming, and age maybe. And then from then on it was Paul IMHO - the guy's voice is so flexible - excellence in every register.

That's why I voted for John. When his voice hits the groove, like it does on "A Day In the Life", it is absolutely irreproducible. Paul has lots of range, but that doesn't hit the spot for me. For "best" singing voice, I need that emotional connection. John managed that most easily for me in the group. In terms of how much I like to listen to each voice, just for its emotional qualities, I'd pick John George Paul Ringo. Cheers.

I think Paul has the best voice.   He can sing different kinds of songs from Yesterday to Helter Skelter, etc.  Athough I love John & George singing too.  Each one is unique in their own style.

I think Paul has 3 1/2 octaves, John 3, George 2 and Ringo 1. I'm not certain though.

I would go for Macca because he just does it without any s***
i also love John & George's voices, but it always annoys me when i listen to
the double-tracking that Lennon did on his voice or the echo he had on it.
This is why i love john's home demo's when his voice is clear.
George had a beautiful tone to his voice, i've realised this in recent times, just listen
to Stuck Inside A Cloud.
But i voted Paul as he kind sing alsorts like rock n roll, love songs or the whimsical songs! :)
and on his new album he kind of showcases all sides to his voice, Mr Bellamy (funny whimsical voice),
Only Mama Knows, Nod Your Head (rock n roll voice) or You Tell Me (the soft macca voice!)

This is tough... singing just singing either Paul or John.... let me try to decide...George though, I love his singing voice... but just listening to them not seeing them just concentrating on music...

 I have to go with Andy Smith and say, Paul is good because he never messed with his voice as John did, John just singing on demos like She's A Friend of Dorthy or even Real Love are amazing....but maybe Paul over all because he never did that he just sang...and it sounds good...

I'm going to go with Paul on that one... he's got such a beautiful voice, and his range is quite amazing. He can do something like Helter Skelter, then something like Here There and Everywhere. Oh yeah, Andy Smith, I absolutely agree with you about MAF:

But, having said that, I actually enjoy listening to all the Beatles' voices - each of them has its own "special" qualities that makes it enjoyable for me  :)

I agree with you Octie. But then, John has the best rock n roll singing voice (imho)

Oh yes, he could tear a song apart at times. Rock n Roll Music, Twist & Shout,
etc! :) George developed his voice later on as he wasen't really that great singer
on his own at first. He worked perfectly with the harmonies though (this boy, yes it is).
i think he became more confident as a singer in the mid-6o's.
and i was listening to the demo version While My Guitar Gently Weeps a couple of days
ago on Anthology 3 & thought how beautifully he sang it! :) :)

George is absolutely moving when he sings from the heart. The version of WMGGW that you mention, Hear Me Lord, Who Can See It, That Is All-- argh, he just slays me!

George had a weird trajectory as a singer. If you listen to his early Beatles stuff, Live at the BBC era, he was just belting it out alongside Paul and John. As the Beatles got into their recording period (focus more on P&J compositions and less on live act), he actually seemed to lose confidence as a singer and pulled back. It took his spiritual awakening to help him find it again. I agree he grew steadily stronger as a solo act. He was really on for Cloud 9 and Brainwashed.

hmmm well, if i'd want one of them to sing me to sleep..it'd have to be Paul. But, on the other hand, recording voice, I like John's very much. :-)

There's no doubt: SIR PAUL. His vocal range is the best by far. He's really versatile about the kind of song, a beautiful love song like I Will, a vodevil Martha My Dear, a real metal Helter Skelter, he can sing anything he wants. Just realised that kick-ass rockers like Long Tall Sally (probably best vocal performance ever by a Beatle) and Kansas City were both recorded in just 1 take! ONE!  ;D

I think Paul has the greatest range, but I've always prefered John's voice. I like them all really, they suit their own songs. I mean, George would never have written a song like 'I'm Down' would he!
