Do you have any singers who turn you on just by the sound of their voice? Three singers who are not really attractive but drive me absolutely crazy are:
Scott Carney - Wax Fang
Jim James - My Morning Jacket
Raul Malo - The Mavericks
Let's face it, if you're into scat there is nothing like watching Justin Bieber in his hip hop diaper ensemble, acting like a shit and singing crap.
No one from my generation though...sad, eh?
They are all too forgettable.
Kurt Maloo, formerly of Double (Captain Of Her Heart)
Oh, i forgot. Last summer, i discovered in TV, a new French band that i liked. The three guys, especially the two of them are cute and hot...at least to me. They sing in English.
They chose English from the beginning because, being influenced by the Beatles, Elliott Smith, Neil Young, Radiohead, Simon & Garfunkel, The Kinks... it is the language in which their writing comes most naturally. In addition, it is easier to use harmonies in English than in French in pop music.
Oh the band is called Revolver.
Paul Banks of Interpol.
Indie singer John Grant (who did a beautiful version of "Where the Boys Are" a few years ago). He looks like your generic Iron & Wine/Bon Iver beardo dude, but his voice is great.
By voice only:
Michael Hutchence (INXS)
Daniel Ash (Love & Rockets -- song "So Alive")
The Wind Song by Revolver
See this one too.
Buy their album or download their songs. It's a nice one. Really.
Thank you too OP, for making interesting threads.
Kele Okereke from Bloc Party
Neil Hannon (The Divine Comedy)
What r1 said x2
Great call with Raul Malo, OP. Agree with R1, as well.
Barry White (Duh!)
Barry Gibb (hot as HELL on "To Love Somebody" and "Words")
Benjamin Orr (RIP)
HATE his politics, but dude's voice is knee-weakening: Trace Adkins
That criminally underrated, underappreciated, fine, sexy brother, Johnny Bristol.
Voice only? Before my time, but Alex Chilton singing the Box Tops song 'The Letter'. SUPER sexy vocal.
PJ Harvey, very sexy voice
And one from the rap world: Ludacris.
Over the past year or so, on the basis of voice alone:
The Little Bear (from Derry)
R20/R33 - your fucking grammer trolling has gotten way past old. I'm not writing a goddamned novel, I'm posting on an obscure message board/gossip site.
Get over it. Nobody cares.
PS - go for a walk today - your bed springs will thank you.
I know, I know.. I don't understand it either. I really don't. But I swear I'd let him fuck me.... And I'm a top.

R39 = prowd ignunt idjit.
Young Juan Gabriel, strictly on the sound of his voice, as he was not my type even then (too twinky).
Ironically, he matured into a screaming old queen who is into, you guessed it, barely legal twinks.
