Hmmm, what brought this question up? It is obviously Janis.

Bob Dylan had a great voice when he was young. His voice absolutely suited the style of his songs. Anyone with a "pretty" voice would not have been able to convey the power of his lyrics with such force.

I prefer Joplin, her voice was very bluesy and fitted what she was doing well. Dylan was an amazing songwriter I just prefer when people do covers of his songs to the originals because of his voice.

Bob Dylan has the coolest voice ever.

Bob Dylan's voice is just....annoying, I can't handle it.

janis. i love bob dylans voice.

janis joplin is a lyrical genius, and therefore, who the heck cares what she sounds like...

I have never heard the voice of Janis Joplin.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 8/16/03 - 8:34:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Bob Dylan is a lyrical genius too but that doesn't mean I can deal with listening to that voice

You have all lost your freaking mind.

I don't like the covers of Dylan's songs except for Richie Havens cover of "Just Like a Woman". The Byrds did many Dylan covers but their sweet voices don't convey the power of his lyrics. Only Dylan's voice could do that.

um, janis, duh

Bob Dylan's voice is just fine! I always thought Janis Joplin's voice was kind of annoying though.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 8/22/03 - 12:13:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
Bob Dylan's voice, by far.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 8/22/03 - 12:15:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
I like them both, but neither have "beautiful" voices. Dylan is unconventional and Janis is one-dimensional.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/5/03 - 10:23:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
They both have voices that really can't be considered "good", but that's a huge part of their appeal, because they're so different from other singers.

Janis Joplins voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

BTW, Keith Richards has them both beat.

I like Janis Joplin
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 9/23/03 - 10:25:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Both SUCKED. Add Willie Nelson to the mix and you could have the worst trio in music history.

I hate Bob Dylan...and leave Willie Nelson alone!

What UL said.

Bob Dylan's singing is better than his harmonica playing, but that's about as positive as I can be. Joplin, OTOH, had one of the raunchiest, grittiest blues voices of all time.

Bob Dylan's voice is weird but he has good music

Bob Dylan is the worst, and I listened to him back in the 60's...Loved Janis Joplin. And Willie cannot sing, but I would listen to him all night. Once for 50 minutes he sang all of his hits one after another, without pause, it was an amazing show.

Janis did, and oddly enough, my mom just bought an album of hers today.
