Who’s your favorite crooner? We want to know
Welcome to our latest Listening Room Readers Poll. Today, we ask you for your favorite male singers — in any era, in any genre. Still kicking, long deceased or Keith Richards. Doesn’t matter.
All that does matter is that they’re male, they sing for a living, and you think they belong on the list of all-time best vocalists.
We’ll take it from there.

This will be our third readers poll, and far from the last.
We started in the fall by asking you for your list of greatest guitarists in our Best Guitar Players poll. You selected Jimi Hendrix.
Last month we asked you for your list of best albums of all time in our Best Albums readers poll. It was a tight contest, but Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon muscled its way to the top.
Who’ll be your best male singer? We’ll let you know on Christmas Day.
But first things first. Here’s how it works:
We’re asking readers, Listening Room contributors and colleagues to submit a list of their five to 10 best male singers of all time. We’re not limiting this by genre because we want an open contest.
Each name submitted gets one vote, so no need to put them in order. We’ll add up all the votes and at the end the singer with the most votes wins top honors. Hardly scientific, but certainly democratic and it should be interesting and fun.
Or track us down on Twitter:
And don’t worry, we’re not discriminating here. Our next poll will be best female singers. We’ll put that up for you once these results are in.
Then we’ll keep it coming — best bass player, best drummer, best song, and so on. We have enough to keep going for some time.
So, what do you think? Favorite crooner anyone?
