I was looking at MTV'S 22 Greatest voices of all time special...and they actually had MARIAH CAREY before FREDDIE MERCURY? I mean come on, just because you can hit high notes, it doesnt mean that you can sing, come on!!! I think Mariah Carey's voice is good, but after a while, her voice can get a little annoying...she always hitting those damn high notes! Granted, I hate her latest CD along with her greatest hits, but I wouldnt dare put her before Freddie! I swear, I never get tired of listening to Freddie's voice!

Does anyone agree with me? Here goes the list:

Not that it means anything, We ALL know who should be #1!!!

I agree with you 110%, Her voice annoy's me her style of music hides her vocal talents but even,if she sang different music, I enjoy Freddies voice much better. Heck I even listen to Kelly Clarkson before I'de listen to Mariah. I don't even understand why her last album was even considered in the Grammys.

Sorry, MTV, but this is ridiculous. Most of the listed are well-known artists who have new material in the charts. And some are kind of "legends" who are featured in each and every poll. What about those who are not active anymore, who proved 15 or 20 years ago, that they were great singers? Where are the non English speaking? Where, for god's sake, is Aretha Franklin??

And Eminem didn't even prove that he can sing yet ...

Jim Morrison isn't there...
I mean his voice is even better than Freddie's (note: Freddie's songs are far better)

Even other greats like John Lennon and Enya are not present...

They were looking at the most 'original or distinctive voice' rather than the most tunefull, although the worbling puffed up Mariah Canary, Ms Houston and Ms Dion are about the only ones on the list that can 'sing' in tune, sorry Fred but sometimes it was a bit ruff.
There are many more singers that have better voices, just not so well known, Steve Perry of Journey, Nancy Wilson from Heart, two of my favs, tune, power original but to the average joe public Who the F???? are they.

What I find most worrying is Eminem is in the list and according to the list he has a better voice than David Bowie. I don't think this list should be taken too seriously.

That list was crap, but we can`t expect Freddie to be nr. 1 when we live in 2006. The music industry is all about money, money and ofcourse the most important thing...MONEY!

MTV's lists are about as valuable as the weekly "Favorite songs you'd want to hear live" thread that appears here.

Mariah sells a lot of records right now... but might want to start mixing in a salad every now and then.

Hah...Eminem is always on these lists, so that was the first person I looked for to dismiss this list as a joke. Sure enough, there he is.

They don't even have Bryan Ferry from Roxy Music, so that kinda proves it's a list made of current celebs.

When Mariah sings high it sounds like a joke...I thought she was on drugs the first time she did it, like an Anna Nicole moment, then everyone said how *good* it was?!?

And she got booed at Live-Aid...I don't recall that happening to Freddie :)
