    I don't wait 30 minutes after eating, to go swimming.
    I have a real weakness for clean, melodic female voices over heavy music. These two have bands have been my ear worms for a while. Beautiful, talented ladies :)

    Saw several people say Karen Carpenter...her voice always killed me. So melancholy and great.

    Went to see Elton JOhn last week and have to say - the dude is getting a little older and fatter (aren't we all) but his voice is still epic.
    So, Sir Elton John on #2.

    #1: James Taylor for being such a fantastic story teller.

    Regards

    Impossible to name one....but I'll name two that I love and whose names I don't think I've seen in the thread so far. Both fairly recent artists even though I'm a geezer.
