Elvis, Elvis, Elvis....and I don't mean Abbott's partner.  Could sing several styles of music incredibly well and with great emotional impact.  Still the King....

I can't really come up with a short list of favorite singers, but I am surprised, after looking at those listed, that no one said Robin Gibb. His voice and his use of it was truly unique and unforgettable. RIP.

Yes, best singer in the band, the others being basically Barry's voice's variations, including Andy.

Short notice: the cat you see to the left is the best. Not counting your indoor cat who might have habit sitting at your left side when you post at SmileySmile.

Droopy & Snoopy, respectively ugly & cute dogs, swapped places in cartoon history which brought havoc to either side.

At Halloween, Smiley posters should be disguised with smiley face masks. PS posters should be in green-brown costumes & each member imitates by mouth their favorite sounds. Easy, ain't it?

Yes, a vibrato that never seems forced. It was unfortunate when the group used it less when Barry's falsetto came to the fore. IMO, it was good i n moderation,  but a bit overused. While I'm not really as familiar with Andy's voice (and so probably would not find it remarkable with another listen), I would suggest that Barry was also a really good singer, especially when in his comfortable baritone range. Maurice  was no slouch, either, but was usually relegated to harmonies (which, BB fans, we realize is of value). Give a listen here to a Mo lead:

My favorote live BG performance making the most of everyone's gifts follow. Note how Mo actually does the falsettos here.

Lovely rendition. Wow. It's so smooth!

RIP Robin, Maurice and Andy.

This is my favourite Bee Gees song. I couldn't believe my ears when I first heard it:

Oh, oh, yes. Barry's voice actually got better and better, IMO, as the years went by, more full. This song also is an example of the  deceptively simple-sounding  lyrics of many BG songs that nail the sentiment of the song and make the listener do a double-take.

Oh, regarding  Mo's voice, it was really smooth and had a richness to it that is unexpected. Perfect in the BG blend, but I would have liked to have heard more leads by him. Not as exciting, perhaps, as his brother's vox, but quite good. I have recently developed a much greater appreciation for the Brothers Gibb. They really had a unique style in terms of the music, lyrics, vocals.
Their disco era  product, although mostly more soul/R&B, I think was tainted in the minds of many because it was so associated with the disco  genre. and therefore not judged strictly on its own merits.
