Australia's Greatest singer + Good singers

Post by Scrappy on Tue Apr 02, 2013 11:34 am

Over 100 singers and musos were asked who is Australias greatest ever singer
This is the top 10

1 Johnny Farnham
2 Bon Scott
3 Tina Arena
4 Michael Hutchence
5 Jimmy Barnes
6 Guy Sebastian
7 Renee Geyer
8 Sia Furler
9 Chrissie Amphlett
10 Neil and Tim Finn

All very good singers
Theres obviously several singers who have not made the top 10 that must have been considered as well
Im tipping A fraction to much friction with selection number 10 categorised as Aussie singers

Without peer Johnny Farnham is a worthy number 1 [good number for a song]

Who else should have been considered top 10 ?

Bon Scott- Born in Forfar, Scotland.

Jimmy Barnes- Born in Glasgow, Scotland.

Neil and Tim Finn - Born Te Awanutu, New Zealand.

Taking that into account, of the 11 named in the top 10, 3 of them are not technically Australian ( IMO ) then John Farnham is indeed at the top of the list.

If we were to count Bon Scott, because of my musical inclinations, then he would be for mine.

Jimmy Barnes is not even the best singer in his family.

it just depends on what demographic is asked in the survey

Dame Joan Sutherland?

Bit narrow just to focus on pop / rock if you are going to dub it "singer of all time".

A bit ironic, Barnesy judging a best singer of all time contest.

I just saw the Top 50.....can only say I think there are some that should not be there at all !!

Few that have only had 1 album and a few that are there that are just keeping the younger generations happy.

BTW Im not a fan of Guy Sebastian.........Sad

Stevie Wright should be in Top 10 for sure Scrappy !!!

I don't mind Jessica Mauboy, but wow, not sure how she got that rating.

I would have had Eric Weidemann from 1927 somewhere in the top 50.

Kate Miller-Heidke too was worthy of consideration.
