I don't know if there are any artists who are "required" to be loved, though sometimes the song comments do suggest that.  There are a few artists whose voices generally annoy me (Geddy Lee and John Hiatt and come to mind), but Morrison and Costello are not among them.  Van Morrison is just tiresome to me in general - 5 songs with 200 different titles.   I know Tom Waits' voice bothers a lot of folks, but I like it - plus his lyrics are brilliant.

I don't really think there are except maybe Tom Waits. ;-)
 
And Frank Zappa, and Odetta, but most of all: Bruce Springsteen. Every note he sings is off key, but I am the only person who minds it, apparently.

Elvis Costello seems greatly overrated to me too. But this song is fun.
 

A good one he wrote, sung here by his wife. Diana Krall - Almost Blue

Ah yes, the voice. I agree, it's integral to the music. I'm sure i'm missing some great music because i can't stand the vocals. Rush, for example.

Thanks for clearing that up. I've watched enough of your You-Tube video contribution here that it surprised me when i read your post. {#Cheers}

You totally misunderstood me, I actually agree with you completely on this and have said as much before.  I just prefer singing to be in front of the music, but you are absolutely correct as for the music being infinitely more important than the lyrical content, I just want the voice in front of the music. I suppose I did not clarify that very well, should have said it is all about the voice, not the lyrics.

acoustic guitar music with all that foreign strumming and picking sounds
Or the Hawaiian sounds. That ain't working. Banging on the euky like a chimpanzee.

Reagan.

And since I dislike it so much I can't spell it right, my spell-checker takes over and tries to lure me in the political threads.

Edit: Oh, and what Meower said.
