/ Dreadful vocals, great tune
Fabulous that is, apart from the vocals; they're dire. The lyrics are on the extreme edge of hippy dreadfulness too. But it's still a gorgeous tune and I can't think now why it's taken me so long to listen to it again.
Which is odd, as I can't usually abide songs with dreadful singers and godawful lyrics. Just me, or anyone else have surprising favourites?
Most of The Smiths!!

your ears are painted on.
Jools Holland can certainly play the piano but he cannot carry a tune vocally. It all sounds a bit nasally.....
Everything by New Order!
Most of Led Zeppelin's output.
Anything by Ian Brown solo or with the Stone Roses. He's appallingly bad at singing (especially live). Hasn't stopped me buying his music and seeing him live though...
John Leckie managing to engineer his vocals for the Stone Roses album is a miracle. Memorable NME reviews of live gigs include quotes like, "like a drunk man shouting into a bucket".
Still a brilliant front man though!
A lot of Dinosaur Jr stuff. J Mascis cannae sing!

Thats for sure, but his voice matches the sound so well like on Where You Been.
