On Barnesy
I used to frequent the Largs pier Pub , all those years ago
They used to have many live acts in my younger daze

I recall seeing both Cold Chisel and Scandal at that venue

I remarked that Scandal was a better band than Cold Chisel at the time
Ends up I was the Best Dill In Town

I think that Ian Moss is one of the most under-rated singers Australia has produced, and is probably a better singer than Barnes.

Agreed!!! Very Happy

Did my apprenticeship at Australian National Railways.....funny thing is Jimmy Barnes was a apprentice there too!!! (A complete nutter at work so I had been told Shocked )

(Bit before my time though) .....one day came to work and gave tickets to his shows out to the workers. Good that he did not forget his grassroots.

Chambo she made it at 60 !

What a joke.

if these are the judges, reckon Barnesy must have been off his face, Tina smelling too many French truffles and Guy, well don't know what his bent is, but some of these placings are just ridiculous.

Please tell me that the list stops now! I can't take any more of this.

I didn't think it was possible, but this list is worse than recent top 50 AFL lists.

And still no Dame Nellie Melba

Too right he should be. As far as vocal range is concerned, he leaves Iva Davies in his dust for one.

Some great singers listed here and some I wouldn't walk across the road to listen to, but as with all of these type of lists they are open to plenty of discussion.

Sia Furler at number 8 scratch She has been around for only 5 minutes FFS. Evil or Very Mad

The list was one of the more flawed efforts I've seen for some time. Seemed to be a very heavy correlation between popularity and place on the list. The likes of Glenn Shorrock, for one, leave many of these in the dust for pure vocal ability and quality.

Thiele would be top 100, but I dragged our average down and we finished at 356,297.

Even had a Centrals supporter come up and congratulate us on the win, good of him.

Friends against the common enemy.

I've changed the thread heading
From : Australia's greatest singer
To : Australia's Greatest singer + Good singers

This will allow us to incorporate all good Oz singers

ANNE WILLS
Not acknowledged for her singing ability
I think she has a wonderful voice
She has won countless Logies , and still is a funny gal on radio + TV these days
In her hey day she was a stunning women with a lovely bod
She lived a great deal of her childhood on a tropical island and came to Australia when as an 18 year old in 1963

She once made this comment :
" I'm no Barbra Streisland , but whatever the song maybe I'm willing to have a go."

My favorite Anne Wills covers are :
Color My World
Monsieur Dupont
