Sexiest R&B male vocalists: A collaboration

This post is a collaboration between chevvy8 from T. Wayne from A Joyful Process and Lady G from seekthebestblog . We are all crazy about R&B/Soul Music among other music genres and we thought we’d put together a list of our all time favorite male vocalists whom we think have the sexiest  voices. This list of musicians and songs is by no means exhaustive but we’ve rounded up to our top 15 artists, a few being lead vocalists of their bands. We’ve erred on the side of vocalists who we consider timeless but would love to hear who you’d add to the list. Enjoy the music and some good lovin’!!!

    1. Babe you know how much we love us some Al Green, but I was thinking ‘love making’ and for some reason Br. Al hits me in the relationship zone. You know, the sticky wicket that we have to deal with before and after that good loving…LOL!!!!!

      So If I were to create a list of my favorite male singers, he would have been on the top.

      Oh yeah, I like your choice for Tony Tone Toni! I’ll probably reblog this on STBB tomorrow.

      1. Okay, you did SEXIEST. I know a lot a females had “sticky wickets” when that brother hit the stage. Many females fainted or tossed undies at him in his heyday. That’s sexy.

        1. I don’t know what a “sticky wicket” is but I suppose I can guess. I know that we had discussions amongst ourselves about baritones, tenors and falsettos. I think there’ll be some different strokes for different folks. I just know that when Miles says common over, I listen – then Barry White was in a class all by himself. Oh and those falsettos can make you hit the high notes. In one way or another, all those artists knew how to knock the wickets down 😀

      1. I know I said at my blog once that the Isley Brothers did a lot of good covers in the early 70s, but Al Green had some that were just as good. This is one of those, a song actually written I believe by Kris Kristofferson and has been performed by many including him, but famously by country singer Ray Price.

        1. Oh! you know a whole lot more than me on this one T. But I have heard the song performed by a variety of artists more in the Pop genre. A good contribution and I’ll listen out for the others you mentioned.

  1. This turned out pretty well, I’d say. We did go for the timeless voices; which speaks to why they are timeless in the first place. No matter who we chose, we all win because of such great songs that we all love and remember.

    To Ron; Al Green just missed my list-“For The Good Times” or “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart” would have been excellent choices had he made it.

    I’m going to reblog this at A Joyful Process, also.

    1. Great! – I think we have here a collection of some of the finest. Yes, the word timeless is important here because if you think about it, some of these songs date back over 30 years, yet we still love them and a number of the musicians are no longer with us. Maybe value systems have changed as part of our throwaway societal thinking – that you don’t commit to music these days – we invest time in what you would call “one hit wonders” I’m sure we all sound more and more like our parents.

      Funny thing is, I was listening to a “big band sound” programme in the background last night and the DJ was playing a big band swing that was first written in 1938 and I enjoyed listening to it though that was the year my parents were born. So maybe there is still hope for younger generations to revive some of the timelessness😀

  2. Reblogged this on A Joyful Process and commented:
    This post at Chevvy’s Studio was a group project I participated in with Chevvy and Lady G at Seekthebestblog. We decided to make a list of the sexiest R&B singers, by voices. Chevvy tallied the votes and posted a song for each of the final choices. I think it turned out well, and if you like classic R&B male singers, please do check the post out. Leave any comments at Chevvy’s blog.

    1. Thanks to you and Gwin for helping me put it together and I would love to encourage readers/listeners to leave comments on all our blogs. I’ve enjoyed listening to all these songs. The Superstar is a really long version but gorgeous. It reminds me of a song called “How does it fee” by Bloodstone which was 11 minutes long and good for you if you ended up in a slowdance with the right guy/girl and the not so good if it was the reverse 😀
      I also loved the way Phil Perry goes toe to toe between his voice and Dave Koz’s sax in the end.

      1. Oh, I remember that Bloodstone song! And you’re welcome; this was a lot of fun and I enjoyed coming up with my list and seeing what you and Gwin had too. And I also enjoyed listening to all of these great songs and singing along too. It was like our own version of a Quiet Storm show.

        1. Oh yes – it was definitely fun and yes – we can cook up our own Quiet Storm and I get to have my own DJ slot (my closet dream ha!ha!) It would would be great to showcase the remaining songs still in one or other form. Thanks again for being such good sports to both you and Lady G! 😀

            1. Oh for sure – I agree. I meant in general, I get to spin the disc. I’d say that one of you or both can look at the female vocalists when you are ready.😀

  3. Thank you Chevvy for keeping us on task and culling all of this good information together. I can see that you worked hard to create a diverse list–especially since we all seem to agree on the same male singers-for the most part! All in all, I’d say that you did a magnificent job!

    I am going to reblog this tomorrow on STBB.

    This was a lot of fun! I enjoyed this collaborative effort. Maybe be can do another challenge soon!

    1. Oh yes, it was great fun – gave me a chance to catch up on some of my favs and yours and T’s too! The invitation stands for everyone to add if they feel we’ve left someone special out. It would be tough 💕agreeing on a number 1 though 😀

      1. Yeah. There’s no need to haggle over who is number one. All of them have reached their own personal best. That’s good enough for me.
        Again, this was a blast!

    1. Well, I’ll say this – some are not for the faint hearted. If anyone needs help, I hope they’ll use our list for some romantic scene setting. Hope you enjoyed them Joan, I certainly had a great time listening to this and others that I’m sure we’ll air amongst our Blogs. I had great company putting this together 😀
