    The irony is that Cher is a fantastic singer. She used it as an effect.

    Is this the same cher who blasts through every song she has ever recorded with a low, foghorn-esque shout?

    Or he could be talking about the Cheryl wannabe from X Factor, obviously after he'd watch it under the influence of a large amount of alcohol and/or drugs.

    She dives for cheese pasties

    I didn't say I like her voice but she sure as hell can sing. I hate her voice in fact. Silly cannon straddling freak.

    FCUTA!

    Cher has a good voice... certainly much better than a lot of the female pop singers today. It's a lower voice, but unique all the same.

    I've always thought she sounds like a man.

    Most of the stuff on this thread is music for people who aren't really interested in music.

    Stuff like Offspring, American 'ska punk'... that's music for idiots.

    She hits her notes with ease. She's no Mariah Carey, but she hits her notes!

    Think about "Turn Back Time" - she's got some high notes in that one and doesn't seem to struggle with it at all.

    I cant think of any high notes at all. She goes from shouting deeply to shouting not so deeply.

    High notes for a low-pitched woman, mind!

    "Then you love me, love me, LIKE YOU UUUUSED TO DO!!!"

    I don't like Cher, btw, but I give credit where I think it's due.

    Anything that involves swinging your arms around like a Mong and punching people in the face, whilst calling it hardcore dancing.

    you'd probably sing like that if you'd been rogered by an entire battleship of yankee sailors.

    In fact you probably do sing like that.

    Yes, IMO there's a huge difference between having a good voice and being a good singer.

    Example #1. Mariah Carey - she has a technically stunning voice but uses it to warble incessantly with little subtlety or musical skill. She's like a wanky guitarist.

    Example #2. Ian Curtis - consistently out of tune but can express emotion in a deep and unique way.

    AFAIC Cher has a good voice and is a good singer and Turn Back Time is a great song. High notes are irrelevant - the register you sing in means nothing as far as musical expression is concerned.

    Much truth spoken here. Technical ability means fuck-all if all you do is irritate people with it - 'like a wanky guitarist' is exactly how I've described that type of ceaseless bollocking about from singers before now :D

    I mentioned it in the other (wrong) thread, what category does Mark E Smith fall (no pun intended) into?

    The shit one, right?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Yep - Mariah Carey is a disgrace, imo. Great, you can break a glass with your voice, but it annoys the crap out of me!

    Stacey Solomon @ Xfactor

    Seriously? Especially 2:00 to 2:20, my housemate could sing better than that. Yet all the chavs lap it up.

    'These girls fall like Dominos! Dominos!' That one. And any R&B or hip hop that's in the charts right now. Radio 1 has become unlistenable. I'm not getting old!

    Auto tune won't make a crap singer good though. It just won't. Its main purpose is to slightly bend sung pitches to the nearest true semitone. Anything more than that and it starts to sound like utter pants.
    Yes. Which, I think, is why many people (including me) are starting to get sick of it. It's the retarded, samey robotic voice that seems to be in 90% of r&b songs these days that pisses them off, not the tone correction thing.

    I thought of one while I was in the shower - Nouvelle Vauge. Music for people who shop in Urban Outfitters.

    Cascada. Add to that, any other kind of hardcore electro/dance shite.

    Love this. Nothing I hate more than overly technical musicians/singers. How about putting some feeling into it?

    This is also my excuse for being a shit guitarist. I hit bum notes and do crappy bends, but it's got sooooooul.
