On the romantic songs thread LEJ says...
Dusty (Springfield) had the sexiest voice ever recorded.

My vote would go to Ruby Murray.

There was a time when I might have gladly taken the ribbon from Rita Coolidge's hair. But I would most certainly have done ANYTHING Linda Ronstadt asked. M-m-m-m-m...and there was something about the way Merrilee Rush sang "Angel Of The Morning". But at this particular moment, Lucy Kaplanski could have me pretty cheaply. No particular reason that I can think of.

Sexy? Julie London, Those were my impressionable years but she was really sexy. I'm getting to old to wonder about who's sexy today and folk singers don't usually come off being or sounding sexy. Since the question is sexiest ever, I have to go with Julie London the pop/jazz songtress.

I forgot to mention Maria Muldaur who once offered, "Let's slip off to a sand dune, real soon and kick up a little dust." On an album of hers she sings a song about "If you touch my knee". I can't quite remember what she looks like. I have an image in my mind of her singing in a flowered sarong with a hibiscus in her hair. But anyway, her inflection gets me every time.

Annap, yes, I certainly do remember Everett Dirksen, and I have that same album ~~ ran across it the other day, and considered playing it, but haven't yet. He was possibly the last of the old time orators ~~ certainly in today's television age there is no one like him, but that is another story. I lived most of my life in Illinois, so was fortunate to hear him many times.

Paddy, your choice of Dolores Keane certainly suits me. I'll have to think a bit to see if I can top that one.

Somehow I think the opinions on this thread may reveal some gender preferences, but for male voices, I fell in love with Sean Connery when I was about 3. For women's voices, I really like Lauren Bacall. And for singers, the male voice of my current fancy is Vance Gilbert, the female voice, Emmylou Harris or Linda Rondstadt, though I like Alberta Hunter on Handyman too.

I agree with Mudjack and Banjoman about Julie London--I was listening to a CD of her singing "Cry Me a River" a few weeks ago. Fantastic.

And with Bert about Eartha Kitt--"The Birds Do It" and "Santa Baby."

And just to be original, the one I thought of when I first saw the thread: Peggy Lee. Remember "Lover"? Not only her voice, but her performance style--she didn't move her feet, she just seemed to writhe inside her skin. Wow.

I'll have to ditto Maria Muldaur. When I first saw her perform she drove me nuts (it was with the Kweskin Jug Band). I've seen her a couple of times in the past few years. She just gets sexier (better) and sexier (better) all the time - and she's still singing "Don't you feel my leg".

Maura O'Connell is right up there, too.

On the male side, I'd have to say the bass singer for the Fairfield Four (gospel quartet). He's another one who could just read the phone book and send electrodes through the system.

As far as singers go, the other day when I listened to the Irish Tenor cd I was struck by the sexiness of John McDermott's voice. (Though it amazes me how he can get such wonderful sound out without hardly opening his mouth...)

Then there is a friend of mine who I think has a very sexy voice, though you'll all have to take my word for it.

Right now, male: the guy with the group in the top 40's who sings "Lullaby" He kinda speaks part of it about a young girl crowing up in Hollywood and then he sings her a Lullaby "Everything gonna be alright, rockabye, rockabye" Don't knwo the name of the group or the song, but he has got one very sexy voice.

Marlene Dietrich, definitely and I really like Ferron's voice, too.

My girlfriend asked me to call her boyfriend, whom I had never met, on his birthday and sing the sexiest rendition of Happy Birthday I could. He didn't know who I was until later, but he wanted to meet me. We joked about it for several years after.:-)

As for male voices - never really thought about it. Honest. I find quiet/unassuming intelligence sexy, and that's why I like all of Harrison Ford's movies - post-Star Wars of course.

Bogart and Bacall spoke in their normal range for their voice, but there are people who strain their vocal cords by trying to speak lower than they were born to, and it's been given this name.

Among female singers, I have to come down in the Julie London camp. I just wish I could shake the image of her falling-down drunk the one time I got to see her in person.

I was a little surprised at Rick Fielding's mention in 1999 of Barbara Dane. I've got one of her albums that I don't think I ever played more than twice; I'll have to reassess it.

My missus says Anthony Hopkins has a sexy voice. And Jeremy Irons and George Sanders who was the voice of Shere Khan in the Jungle Book film. I wouldn't have sex with any of them, but then again I doubt they'd want me to.

For me the sexiest voice belongs to Sade. Someone else who wouldn't want sex with me.

Basically (almost) any Scots accent!!! (so Sean Connery is in!)

Hmmm .. and yes, Anthony Hopkins would get a vote too ...

But in the "folk" music stakes, I'd say :

Number 1. ROD PATTERSON (Jock Tamson's Bairns / Easy Club)

and then perhaps ARCHIE FISHER!!


But what about my very very most favourite singer, BOB FOX?!!!


Maria Muldaur would have to be right up there too, plus Peggy Lee and Julie London. June Tabor and Kate Wolf are fantastic, but I don't think of them as having "sexy" voices ...


Freda and JennyO - your mention of Gerry Humphries took me back to my early teens! - I adored "The Loved Ones" too and my Mother was absolutely fascinated with Gerry - I was under strict instructions to call her in whenever he was on TV!!!

Just had to join in the fun on a boring afternoon here at work...

I can't believe nobody has yet put in a vote for Nick Cave. His singing voice has such an incredibly intimate quality, it always makes me feel as if he really is singing just for me. Added to that deep growly rasp he's got going on in there, it always makes me think of how a man sounds the morning after the night before. Yummy.

I will add a big "me, too!" for Alan Rickman's speaking voice. That man could talk me right into a... very cold shower.

As for female singers, you all don't know what you're missing if you haven't heard Belle du Berry. Playful, intimate, expressive, natural, utterly gorgeous voice. She sings for an absolutely fantastic Parisian swing/lounge band called Paris Combo. When I first bought a CD of theirs, my metalhead husband kept it in the player in his car for three months! Not that I could blame him.

Thanks for the entertaining conversation, mudcatters!

Thank goodness he'll never read that. lol.

I have a real weakness for voices. I usually go for tenors: ohhhh.

Sally Kellerman.
Kate Mulgrew. (yeaaah, has anyone been a Star Trek captain without passing the melts-in-the-pants-test? Could you IMAGINE if that was actual pre-requisite for military advancement?!)
