      1. Hurrah! That’ll be excellent.
        Hmm hmm I’d probably go with Dion, Elvis, Milo, Evan Dando of course, Brandon Flowers, Billy Corgan which I know to some people is like nails on a chalkboard, Rivers Cuomo, John Denver, ( Ron Hawkins maybe, Bill Janovitz maybe-they both have this hearty kind of sound I like I don’t know how to describe it) Marcus Mumford maybe, off the top of my head! And I’ll throw Cillian Murphy in because his singing is some soft & dreamy shit. =) Your list is smashing.
