Never heard of Sam Cooke before! Certainly he has a very fine voice, even though that song's vocal range is very limited. On the other hand, I learned on a quick google check that he led an extremely sad life. His son drowned when only 18 months old, he went into an out of control drink and womanising spiral and was killed by gunfire in a cheap motel when only 33. Since voices develop over time, had he lived he could very well have been right at the very top of the tree for decades.

But more generally, doesn't the title "best singer ever" depend to a huge degree on the type of music you actually like? I know it's passe, but I remain a huge Sinatra fan - Frank that is. The Michael Buble's of the world are excellent but their voices just cannot match that of Sinatra.

If you happen to be a fan of classical music, you can forget the likes of Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras. Arguably the finest voice of the last century, like Sam Cooke Fritz Wunderlich died young aged only 35, tragically from a fall down stairs. Even if classical is not your thing, listen to this very short Schubert song and hear how fabulous a true voice can sound.

Not to worry! You will be easily forgotten.

Interesting response. Is that your default go-to corner when anyone disagrees with you?
Cheers ... ( and just one more reason why I love living in Thailand )

Uhhhh, yoohooo. Gentlemennnn . . . . Remember a little something about not getting personal with each other?

It's not nice to ignore board rules when poor ol' GB isn't feeling at his best and just might let his bad mood get the better of his itchy delete finger. That's a no-no. No no no no no no no . . .

You must not have seen my post in my annual Songkran report. I missed it. I'm down with a bad case of bronchitis and couldn't go out to play.

It appears that Dimash Kudaiberganov came second in the finals of the Chinese Competition. The winner was a very popular Hong Kong singer Sandy Lam who is more than twice his age!

He has now become hugely popular in China and is filming a documentary for Chinese TV.
