Peter Gabriel. 'Red Rain'. Just get the voice throatily-whispery enough and it works.

And I'll throw in another vote for Bryan Ferry. It just invites piss-taking.

Oooh, good call. In a similar vein, Cannon and Ball doing 'Wind Beneath My Wings'.

That's not an example of having fun while impersonating them. That's a musical version of the Ninth Circle of Hell.

As indeed was Bette Midler's original. Never can there be a more bowel-moving, teeth-shatteringly awful moment than when she groans 'flyyyyyyyyyyyy, flyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy' at the top of her voice, like a whale with a haemorrhoid problem.

Belting out "Did yee-oh ever knoh that yewer my HEE-roh!" You don't think that's fun? If that's not fun, what is? If that's wrong I don't wanna be right.

I enjoy trying to sound all gravelly like John Martyn. It's especially handy when you don't know the lyrics.

And who can resist Bryan Ferry, especially when it's 'Oh Yeah"?

The thing with Bryan Ferry is... you know how most singers have one or two idiosyncracies (eg the way Damon Albarn whistles his esses), but most of the time they're just singing it straight? With Bryan Ferry, especially on the early, pre-croon material, it's nothing but the idiosyncracies. Which lends itself to impersonations really well, because at no point do you have to attempt Proper Singing.

I derive enormous pleasure from doing exaggerated impressions of Brett Anderson and Brian Molko slightly in the style of Phil Cornwell's Bowie & Jagger (ah, which I have just seem mentioned in the first post).

Hello everyone. Long time no see. For which I can blame various ISP disasters and a large amount of laziness.
Bjork is a lot of fun to do once you master the odd hissing and clicking sounds. Tori Amos can also be quite amusing, especially the Scabby Pig Song, aka the Armand Van Helden remix of 'Professional Widow'. I also enjoy a good Morrissey as much as the next girl, especially the long warbly wordless bit at the end of 'The Boy With The Thorn In His Side'.

Yeah, Mack is back. (Welcome back. Everybody kept asking about where you were.)

I was going to say Liam Gallagher as well, mainly because I can imitate both him and Noel decently in karaoke. Limited range, sneer, don't move. Easy.

The impressions are purely vocal SR, I've never tried the visual side of them but people have commented on my resemblance to Anderson before.

Louis Armstrong, especially the James Bond theme (All The Time in The World, I think)
