But we know better. Top Ten Vocalists For whatever it's worth, my top ten vocalists of all time are: Okay, that's really a baker's dozen, but I'm not willing to give any of them up!

Ronnie Hawkins of the Hawks merits special mention as a "dark horse" for his amazing performances of "Hey Bo Diddley" and other undervalued songs. Hawkins had a pure, high tenor voice and could hit some amazing notes that make me think of Michael Jackson, only with more power.
