I'm a guy and am listening to Kate Bush's The Kick Inside. It's a really cool album, but sometimes, I find her high voice irritating. Other female singers like Nina Simone, Carole King and Maria McKee and even Madonna (when I hear her, because I don't own any albums) aren't nearly as unsettling. It's almost like Kate Bush is too gifted for her own good. So, does a singer's gender affect your enjoyment of music? I set up a little poll. Thanks.
