As non singers seem to be allowed then I vote for Joe Pasquale. Gonna take some beating!

To be clear, I don’t mind jazz improvisations on the vocals. But he just misses too many notes. I have another album of his from the early 90s and the same is true.

Joni Mitchell’s voice annoys me. Cold fingers down a chalk board.
