    That's a lot of people!

    I don't know Jay Black or David Gates.

    Johnny Rivers, Bobby Vinton, Dion, Frankie, and Tommy I'd give 5's to. Bobby Vinton maybe a 6. Entertaining but not great singers.

    Smokey Robinson, the man with the smooth voice I'd give a 10.

    Petula Clark-6...all her songs sounded so similar.

    Roberta Flack-8...I love her voice.

    Tammy Wynette-at the risk of insulting someone I won't rate her but say too twangy for me.

    Merle Haggard-6 because he had some fun songs.

    Bobby Vee-I'd give him a ten. He has a nice voice plus I once kissed him!

    Rivers-10 The man has continued to record and still performs. He sounds even better with age.

    Black- 5 Has a nice voice but doesn't impress me as much as other artists

    Robinson-10 What can I say, undoubtedly one of those voices you recognize right off the bat. One smooth voice

    Vinton- 2 Never was much of a fan of Vinton nor of:

    Vee-2 These type of singers tried to copy one anothe so much that even their fans have gotten them mixed up

    Clark- 8 Interesting voice enjoyable to listen to

    Deon-5 He was ok, but never did much for me as a singer, though he was favored by many fans

    Flack 10- Fabulous singer another artist you recognize quickly

    Gates 10- I don't think I've ever heard anyone that comes close to this soft spoken singer.

    Avalon 2- same as Vee and Vinton copycat sounds to me

    Wynette 2- She had the hits, but she sang through her nose, which sort of irritated me listening to her.

    Haggard-2 I'm not a fan of the old style country music. I don't feel he was all that exceptional in his singing. Just my opinion though

    Roe- 2- To me, a sappy singer,nice voice, but nothing special

    They all had some good music, but the only one who gets a 10, in my book, is Smokey. The only one who gets a 1 is Tommy Roe, bland, bland, bland. The rest are all in between. Although, I've got to admit, I can't really say about Merle and Tammy, country music not being my favorite genre.

  • 1 decade ago

    The first three, I've never heard them sing.

    8- love Blue Velvet

    10- I love so many of his songs

    4- don't like her voice

    Haven't heard the other three

    100+- I love Frankie Avalon. He's the perfect example of an American Idol. I'm probably one of the few 19 year olds who got kissed by him in this era. And I did!!!! I went to a concert of his and he signed my scrapbook and kissed me!!!

    Haven't heard the other three.
