Dr. Something's Question of the Week

Hi Everybody!

I'm starting a weekly feature here based on an extremely simple premise: each week I will pose a music-related question to you, the lovely readers (fellow bloggers too), and open up the comments to answers and discussion.

This weeks question: Who's your all-time favorite singer who "can't sing"? Whose voice do you find stragely moving or soothing despite their failure to produce dulcet tones, or sing notes on key?

I'm personally quite partial to Nico.

Lou Reed! No, wait, IGGY POP.

I love Nico's voice. Hmmmm...... Maybe the guy from Silver Jews? (David Berman? Is that his name? I am HORRIBLE with names!) I don't know if he "can't sing", but all his favourite singers couldn't sing.... ;) .... Or Leonard Cohen.... or the guy from Fad Gadget, I think his voice sounds kind of awful, but I love it at the same time. Don't ask me about favourites, I'll go on and on forever.
