OK here are a few:
First my recent fav:
Gareth Emery feat. Lucy Saunders - Sanctuary
Haunting voice.

Some others:
Thievery Corporation - Lebanese Blonde
Thievery Corporation - So Con Voce
Thievery Corporation - Le Monde
Zero 7 - Destiny
These four have some very sultry vocals.

Now some more with more haunting style vocals:
Andain - Summer Calling
Motorcycle - As the rush comes
Chicane - Saltwater
BT - Remember

Ok I didn't look through the whole thread but I did search and no matches for Jennifer Warnes. I'd highly recommend her album "famous blue raincoat" (All Leonard Cohen songs).

And don't be too quick to write off live either. Sure some singers suck live, but if they are good then it makes very little difference, and sometimes live is better.

YouTube - Joan Of Arc - Jennifer Warnes & Leonard Cohen (Famous Blue Raincoat) (probably my fave song on the album) there are plenty of other tracks off the album on youtube as well.

Just for comparison this is a live version of the same song (which if you buy the 20th Aniversary remaster will be on it as well as a bonus track). YouTube - Joan of Arc (Live in Belgium 1992) - Jennifer Warnes

And for something completely different (not a recommendation), In my opinion this live rendition of Jealous guy is as good as the studio version YouTube - Roxy Music - Jealous Guy [Live,1982] Roxy Music 1982.

Tony.

not sure if you are being serious or tongue in cheek, but I listen to loads of different things but my biggest guilty pleasure is trance music.

I'm actually not familiar with early 90s disco (I think was called italo over here). May have to check it out, I always love listening to different stuff.

No joking! Pure art in those productions ! Although they were massively played on the radios -a product-I still can remember 'The rhythm of the night' and 'You got to let the music'...well ,they were just hiring a singer and promote
the 'machine'... a sort of reply to Detroit's Techno where lots of Aretha Franklins were employed to sing over the 'base' .
Currently I can stand only 'trance' played by the Hilight Tribe (France)because they use real instruments .

Yeah, one of my favorite tracks is Hybrid - Finished Symphony where they hired a russian orchestra. Though I love electronic instruments too. I just vary all over the map. I love BB King and other old blues artists on up through almost everything modern.
