    Any List that doesn't include "Ave Maria" is woefully incomplete *. Here is a soul and a "straight" version: << Instantly recognizable voice << Tough choice: his or Andrea Bocelli's

    And then there's Jerry Butler's "For Your Precious Love": and 50 years later, he hadn't lost a step:

    Righteous Brothers--"Unchained Melody":
    Ben E. King--"Stand By Me": << John Lennon just kills but his is more anguished than pretty:

    A reggae version of an old country hit: and a soul one: and the original:

    "When I Fall in Love"--Julie London's version is compelling but there's scads of others:

    I could go on--how many days do you have to spare?

    * I scaled back my vehemence, trust me.

    I couldn't pick 50 tracks let alone 5 But one track that definately wouldn't be there would be Danny Boy.... I don't care who performs it, I hate it with a passion!

    I am a South African living in Ireland and there are two types of music I find truly irritating - South African & Irish traditional music. Both of them bore me to tears. Whenever it comes on the radio I just turn it off. Just gives me a headache.
