* [[WebVideo/JonTron Jon Jafari]] has a speaking voice that could be compared to [[Film/TheThreeStooges Curly]], and he can be very shrill when he wants to be. Not to mention his notorious "'''ECH ECH'''" CatchPhrase[=/=]VerbalTic/[=/=]what part of his throat does he even ''make'' that vocalization in, which some of his fans even find to be the MostAnnoyingSound. However, he [[TheCastShowoff studied musical theater,]] and when he wants to sing, he doesn't just do it well--he does it ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOlQUzUpsMM operatically.]]''

Added DiffLines:

** As far as the accent omission goes Queen has a habit of zig-zagging, though it's mostly either for the sake of maintaining musicality/beat (Singing "cabinet" like ca-bin-ette (more RP) instead of cab-net (more American) in "Killer Queen") or small slips that no one happened to catch, though the latter can be a little weird in the context of an otherwise American-sounding accent.

* A similar case with the above two is with [[WebVideo/FilthyFrank George Miller]]. His voice as the titular character is a gruff smoker rasp, and his voice as "Pink Guy" is very whiny and nasal. ''Neither'' of these match up with his singing voice, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBfWKmRFTjM]], a smooth, pleasant baritone.

Added DiffLines:

** The more extreme subgenres of metal, such as death metal and black metal, aere pretty much this by default, since the "singing" is more along the lines of growling and screaming, and naturally the people doing the vocals have way different sounding speaking voices than when they are singing.

Added DiffLines:

* Texan guitar virtuoso Eric Johnson (of "Cliffs of Dover" fame) sings with a breathy tenor similar to [[{{Music/ScrittiPolitti}} Green Gartway.]] In interviews, he sounds eerily similar to [[{{Creator/JeffGoldblum}} Jeff Goldblum.]]

** Roger Taylor, the drummer and occasional vocalist of Queen even moreso. His speaking voice was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nakYjO2xDoc rather high and soft]] and yet he could either sound [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_NeqJlrINc extremely masculine]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kw4sSZuBDN8 extremely feminine]] or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRw9CW7iMZk rather normal]] when he was singing. Roger, without a doubt, had the most versatile voice and the widest vocal range in the group.
