LOL!  I hear ya.

 

On Simon and Garfunkel thier voices blend so well , thier harmonies so tight it is sometimes difficult to pick them apart when listening. At least that's what my ears have long reported.

 

Off hand I'd go for Cohen, Bono, Pavarotti, my father's tenor, Freddie Mercury, Bryan Duncan, Roger Waters, David Gilmore, Luther Vandross, Alan Parsons, Paul Anka, Elvis, ... I'm sure there's more male vocalists I'd list if I'd had a titch more coffee. Smiley Happy)

Assume nothing. Question everything. And start thinking.

Good list..  You are right  so so many great ones

Lou Reed and David Bowie. But the best on any level was Freddie Mercury.

My favorite male singers include John Prine, Steve Tyler, Prince, Paul McCartney, Rod McKuen, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young and my son, Alex Adams. All different genres and very different voices.
