23 thoughts on “Rolling Stones 200 Greatest Singers Full List All Time 2024”

  1. This list is just ridiculous! It is not clear who made it and according to what criteria. Why does it have singers from Africa and Asia, but practically not a single representative of Europe (of course, except for the UK). Where are the French and Spanish singers, where are Italians, Belgians, Russians? How can such a list inspire at least some respect if it does not include Edith Piaf, Dalida, Joe Dassin, Pugacheva, Salvatore Adamo, Julio Iglesias, Toto Cutugno. And even the super-popular Stromae?
    One gets the feeling that, as usual, the Americans, who feel themselves the center of civilization, chose 80% of the list from their compatriots, slightly diluted with the Britons and representatives of Latin America.
    But even as far as English-speaking singers are concerned, the list is puzzling. Where are Tori Amos, Peter Gabriel, Annie Lennox, not to mention Madonna, Celine Dion, Pink, Kanye West, Eminem?

    1. Tony McCluskey

      Ann Wilson not on the list but Iggy Pop is?…like most th8ngs associated with RS magazine, utter horseshit

    2. Load of rubbish. Lionel Ritchie should of been in the top twenty. People forget it was him who arranged Endless Love, he was a vocal arranger as well as an epic songwriter. He also vocally guided Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and all the singers who sung on We Are The World. The video evidence is all there. Ridiculous.

  2. I stopped reading the list when I saw “Taylor Swift.” Yes, she’s good and very popular but “best singer?” Not in my opinion due to her average vocals and a very limited vocal range. I’m not a Celine Dion fan but it’s baffling why she was omitted.

    1. Jaw dropping that Swift made the list. She should not be. She’s one dimensional. Why? Celine not on the list, I do agree with. She’s been over trained, over exposed, you can anticipate her every word, song and tear. Unfortunately she’s been over manufactured by the music machine and her late husband. Who is she really???

  3. Top 10…racist. The WOKE list?
    I agree with several I’m shocked we’re not overlooked. Any list without Judy Collins is not a list. Many of these, famous though they may be, are horrible. Mick J?? Come on. And Aretha is just loud ( and bitchy). Mid-way on the list.
    So much for the opinion of whoever drank a bottle of WOKE whiskey. And wrote this.

      1. Robbe Sebesta

        I never understood the appeal of her voice. I agree that she was loud, but not melodic.

  4. Arif Mahmood

    Bollywood playback singer Mohammed Rafi is better than all of these in list.
    Rafi’s Baharon Phool Barsao song was voted the most popular Hindi song in a BBC Asia Network poll commemorating 100 years of Hindi Cinema.
    In a CNN-IBN survey in 2013, Mohammed Rafi was voted the greatest voice of Hindi Cinema.
    In 2001, Mohammed Rafi was named as the “best singer of the millennium” by Hero Honda and Stardust magazine.
    In June 2010, Mohammed Rafi, along with Mangeshkar, was voted the most popular playback singer in the poll, conducted by Outlook magazine. The same poll voted “Man re, tu kahe na dheer dhare” (Chitralekha, 1964), sung by Mohammed Rafi, as the No. 1 song. Three songs were tied for the No. 2 spot; two were sung by Rafi. The Two songs were “Tere mere sapne ab ek rang hain” (Guide, 1965) and “Din dhal jaye, hai raat na jaye” (Guide, 1965)

  5. Very uncomplete list of singers indeed, only US is well represented, very West-oriented indeed.

  6. My sentiments exactly. If they going to include the weekend then KeKe Wyatt should have been on here. That sister in my opinion is right up there with Whitney, and that is my #1 favorite. I don’t even know why they included Brandy. I am sorry but I believe Whitney should have been first. I like Aretha but I have always thought Whitney was #1 even when it came to Aretha. Whitney’s bravado and how she switches her range without any effort always amazed me. Jazzmine Sullivan should have been way up the top as well and there is no way Mary J Blige should be in front of Chaka.

  7. Eric Jackson Lurie

    Where is Joe Lynn Turner, Mickey Thomas, Paul Rodgers, Robin Zander, etc. C’mon this list is silly.

  8. Ilikethesongs

    These lists will never please everyone, but probably 85% of the singers on this list are universally acknowledged by critics and their peers as incredibly gifted. However the other portion of this list is puzzling. When you think of a sensational title like the “200 hundred best singers of all time” you would envision singers that can emote with their vocal instrument in a way that sets them above even the very talented. We could argue over our favourite artists “placement” in the list, but no one could argue the power of singers like Whitney or Elvis or Marvin, et al. to move their listeners through sublime renditions of their material. Soulful, raw, beautiful. They are singers’ singers. Other artists on this list are so unique in their delivery and their songs so suited to their voice that to omit them would illustrate a lack of appreciation for pure artistry. Bob Marley, Bowie, Bob Dylan, Morrisey, etc. They are song writing geniuses.

    But, frankly, many of the modern artists on this list should not be there. Most modern singers are so heavily manufactured and carbon copies of each other, it’s hard to tell them apart. With the exceptions of Adele, D’Angelo and Alica Keys, there are singers on this list that are merely a testament to the extensive nature of their vocal training or because they are good looking, or because they are the face of a currently popular musical genre. Should they be on a list? Yes. Call it “The 200 greatest creations of the music industry,” where you might include your Biebers and Madonnas.

    But should the “200 hundred best singers of all time” include modern artists just to appease modern audiences? Should their names sit alongside the likes of Stevie Wonder and Freddie Mercury? Of course not.

  9. Where is the divine Sarah Vaughan? Where is the miracle of Nat King Cole? Where is Edith Piaf? Where is Mina?
