    Sounds about right. We're done this here before, I think other finalists would be Elvis, George Michael, Rufus Wainwright and some others I'm forgetting.

    Love Mercury but Pavarotti, Domingo, Leontine Price and Jussi Bjoerling are right up there.

    "Most humans never speak or sing with their ventricular folds unless they’re Tuvan throat singers, so the fact that this popular rock vocalist was probably dealing with subharmonics is pretty incredible."

    Always thought he looked Mongolian

    I read a story in Rolling Stone last year that said something to the effect that he had four extra teeth that may have increased his vocal range.

    A documentary I saw once said he didn't have extra teeth, but preserving his range was the reason he never got his jacked-up front teeth fixed.

    Is this a male only study? Because I will throw Karen Carpenter up against anyone, male or female.

    And Natalie Merchant would be close behind.

    Joan Baez is my top female singer.
