Male singers who sound extremely feminine

Not quite talking about singers who wail in a high registers (the Robert Plants) or use a lot of falsetto (the Tiny Tims) - more like the timbre and texture of their voice.

Example:


Marc Bolan (at times) is another singer I think of when it comes to this. Anyway, post your favorites or some that you think are good examples. :)

Mickey:singer from Starship and Elvin Bishop"..., Tommy Shaw of Styx, The guy from Trane. Not my fav register for a voice, not even a female. Grating and non-emotional in my opinion...GREAT for "high-harmony: which most of these guys are good at.

Bands I played in always wanted to do this song. I just could not do it..

First time I've watched a video. It didn't help my perspective.



Couldn't do it no matter how popular it was.

the Neighbourhood, couldn't believe it's a guy singing.
and John Mayer with that whispery delivery, not feminine in like I think it's a girl singing, but feminine male singing.

I used to have a hard time telling the difference between Marty Balin and Grace Slick in the early Airplane.

its tough to tell the difference between Geddy Lee and Gwen Stefani.

One of my favorite bands, Foxy Shazam would fit too
