what way do you like his voice? there are probabaly other choices that i forgot about so i made an option for other so you can pick that one and then you can write in your post what you would title the other (the other thing that you are voting for that i did not put in the poll because i coulnd't figure out all the choices)

whoops guys i spelled other the wrong way, the one that says othre is really other, so if there is a way that you like Bill's voice that is different from the ways i made as options, click the one that says othre (it really means other, i just made a mistake) and then in your post write what you would want it to be (not othre, or other, but what choice you would make it because i can't know all of the choices)

ok?

soft. I refer to "Landslide" and the all acoustic set at his solo show in April. It actually sounded very pretty.

i really like the way his voice sounds when he's sang all he can sing, and keeps singing for twice as long.

so what mariner said.

Its really hard to choose one cuz all the different types of voices is one of the things that makes BC so great and the unique voice of the pumpkins!
In the end, I had to go with soft...it was a tough choice but thats what I decided on!

i like it when he pronounces words badly. eg "ya0uo" instead of "you".

I feel gay every time I hear him sing the word "contact" in Glass & The Ghost Children.

I like the 'hurt animal' position (Vancouver 97 before going into Zoom) most.

My favourite is when he sings "I can't go on" in behold the nightmare. how come that isn't an option.

falsetto was nice during SD though he said it really hurt his voice doing that.

anything but the "where do we go from hereeeeeeeeeeeeeee...." nasal whine in "Rock On"

I think Gish voice should be an option unto itself. It has that nasal "twang", but is at a deeper and richer register which unfortunately seems to disappear amidst the exaggeration of the "nasal whine" which increasingly characterises the vocal style of latter eras.

Coincidentally, it's my favorite vocal "style" of his.

I think Billy can pull it all off. He has such a unique voice with that nasal twang and he uses it so well. I've though about it before. I'm pretty sure you could give him any half decent song to cover and he'd make it sound good with his voice and his style.
