  • I honestly like both. Some days I enjoy listening to some male lead bands/singers (like Empire of the Sun, Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, Marilyn Manson, Metallica, Depeche Mode, John Legend, Nirvana, Queen, Muse, Deftones, Nine Inch Nails, New Order)

    and other days I love listening to some female lead bands/singers (like Austra, Eurythmics, FKA Twigs, Ladytron, Florence + the Machine, Paramore, Fleetwood Mac, Portishead, Peaches, Sade, Björk, Metric)

    Sometimes there's a duet, like the Voltaire Twins.

    And other times I don't want any singers at all, and will just listen to instrumental music. But I listen to music all the time, many hours of the day! :)

  • I prefer male vocals. Females tend to do more pop and such, and I am more of a rock person. 😎 I think the deeper bass and roughness in the male voice suits rock more than female. I'm not particularly opposed to female vocals, but I just happen to find and like more songs with male vocals.

    Though sometimes you get the weird hybrid voices that bridge the gap between male and female, like in the song Lazy Eye by Silversun Pickups. :O

  • I love a great female vocalist (like Aretha Franklin, Lucinda Williams, Billy Holiday, Adele, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin) and those who are great peformers or lyricists (such as Carol King, Blondie, Joan Baez)

  • Strongly depends on the music I'm listening to
    like, my favourite singer is a woman, but there're
    pieces of music that may be odd, with a female vocalist.

    Yeah? ^.^

    I mean, they could probably pull it off, but it'd
    sound entirely different, to the original.

  • It depends on the type of song. I always liked more upbeat songs and rock songs to be better sung by guys. But more serious or kind of Noir mystery serious darker songs (I don't really know how to explain it) are better by girls. The song "In the Air Tonight" is originally sung by a guy but I love the Kelly Sweet cover of that song more than the original.

  • When it comes to Rap, I prefer male voices, but when it comes to EDM I prefer women's.
    So I chose option C.

  • I personally much prefer male over female. There are some female artists I really like but generally speaking male. Most female vocalists really annoy me, something about their pitch and tone.

  • It depends on the song and beat.
    I can appreciate both but some songs really do sound much better with a certain gender singing.

  • Female, and in fact, in EDM female vocalists are so preferred there's actually whole sub genres dedicated to it, such as "Female Vocal Chillstep".

  • definitely male vocalists... I don't know why, but i think most female vocalists sound the same.. the few exceptions always stand out!
    Amy Winehouse, Lana del Rey and Adele all stood out because they didn't sound like every other girl

  • I like both equally. Of course it also depends on the type of music. Modern pop sounds better with male singers. Chorus and lullabies sound better with female vocalists.

  • Male, purely if it's music I want to sing along to. It's just easier to get in key. Now just listening to it, doesn't matter as long as they have a voice a personally like. Doesn't seem to happen often in the genre I listen to the most, for female vocalist that is. Though when it does, I'll listen happily.

  • I love singing along with the male singers but if a female is singing it and either gender can sing it I'll sing with the woman! Christian music is different! I'll sing along to EVERY single Christian song!!!

  • strangely I prefer male... maybe because when I sing along i sound like the prettier version of the song? haha I don't know. .. Or maybe because masculine sounds are more appealing to my senses? 😬 I do like female songs... like this song...

  • I accidentally vote b. I think male vocalist are more talented. Most female vocalist/singer only sells her body/face (not in a sexual way). Like for example nicky minaj, taylor swift, selena gomez.
