I will admit that I have caught what I think might be considered off moments here and there when listening to my most favorite singer James Otto, but if that is what they are, I don't have a problem with it. I love how James sounds and his not doing anything to make himself sound different only makes me love him even more! I love the way that his voice already is! How can you not love a person when they sing with the precious and beautiful heart that they have?

God bless you and him always!!!

That old song with the chorus "come up and see me, make me smiiiiiile". The man singing the verses is horrific. I still like the song though.
Hmmm... that's talky singing though and it's a deliberate style which I think serves the song well. I wouldn't say it was "out of tune"

And no-one's mentioned T'pau - made a living out of singing flat, especially China in your Hand.

Still, I prefer to hear a singer going slightly flat occasionally that one that's been produced to high-heaven with auto-tune left right and centre - just makes the performance sound artificial rather than real.

Neil Tennant. He really cannot sing, but I quite like some of their music.
I think PSB are great, I love their music and Neil has a lovely singing voiceon record and is usually really good live you must have caught him on a bad day!

Mr Auto tune himself: Michael Buble! Why he puts it all over his records is a mystery. His songs put my teeth on edge!

Robbie Williams is not the greatest singer and does sing out of tune.

I think Robbie is a great singer, his songs just aren't tweaked to death like most singers these days. His heyday was definitely his Britpop phase in the 90s though.
