The sad thing about them is all of them are dead. );

But they still remain one of the best singers of all time, and the most memorable.

Bo,  would you make that more precisely? I can't read how many votes there are. They sold millions of records and to make such an infinite statement, it takes guts. I don't believe in Ranker. Even though - for me at least one of the is the greatest. But I doubt Ranker is empirical correct.

And what?
Frank Sinatra is what?
Trash?
The Four Horsemen are?
Of the Apocalypse?
This polls title and what you have based it on is BOGUS.
You need to rethink this...........
As it stands the list is arbitrary.
It's Bonefide's top 4 musicians of his random choice.
Why do you think I made my 5 Horseman of music?
It's because they actually were "Horsemen" in the movies.
You'd think you'd "Get" it.
I wanted to point this out, but I waited patiently for someone else to point it out first.
Thank you cinephile.

Your question is   .........
Who is your favorite among these four greatest singers of all time?
Not Pop/Rock which you just explained above.

Even rankers list IS SINGERS
Frank IS listed as Pop music
So leaving him out makes your list dubious

Frank Sinatra was a traditional pop star, that's why I didn't include him.

Semantics.
Michael Jackson is a traditional pop star. Modern popular music for the time period.
Todays popular is traditional country music.

Pop is short for Popular. Any period has Pop (Popular) music.
You are defending the indefensible.
If your list is based off of ranker, then to discard the list makes it Your list, and therefor your personal favorites.
It follows no pattern.
The poll if it went live would generate a ton of complaints as to why so and so was not on your list, or why did you have him on you list at all?
It is too impossible a poll to have only four choices.....of this nature.

No.
You might as well abandon the idea. Or seriously modify it.

Laughing very hard!
My poll makes sense.
Yours does not.
I'll give you my poll if you drop this lame one.
Yep...I could care less.
You wanna have it...take it.
I stole nothing.
I properly used the English language "In Context" for a poll suggestion.
Something that you clearly did not.
I only made the poll because I wanted you to see how "Horsemen" is viewed in English speaking countries.
Now make a non face off based on this. One that make sense.
Throwing around the term 4 Horsemen is best kept to what it represents only.
I could come up with a really good poll based off of the 4 Horsemen.
But I cannot use it because you have used it.
Use it well. Don't waste it on this poor excuse of a poll.
Use the true meaning of the 4 horsemen. Make it about movies.
I'll give you some time.
If you cannot see that this great title deserves a great poll, then you are nearsighted.
Please read as a reference and find some movies that relate.

Honestly, I think that this suggestion would have been better as an "IMDb Poll Board" Poll.
For me, the relation between those singers is too random.

As long as it is his personal "filtered" narrow minded poll yes. A poll board poll would be appropriate. But the "Four Horsemen" Title should be scrapped. It is bad to refer four singers as part of an apocalypse!

You just DO NOT get it
I Stole nothing.
My poll is about Real Singing Horsemen.
Yours IS NOT.
YOU IGNORED the English language altogether and arbitrarily used
"Four Horsemen" OUT OF CONTEXT.
Read what I said.

Well I waited and you decided to stick with this and not take me up on my offer to make this about the apocalypse.
I have now done so, and made a poll board choice poll.

The idea to connect The Four Horsemen to legendary singers is lack of foundation in my opinion. 

Though I like the idea, the 4 singers on the list too is controversial because there is no fundamental criteria, I guess everyone has their opinion about this "greatest singers of all time".


If I suggest, you can make a list based on
- Rolling stone magazine greatest singers
- who sell the most albums 
- or who win the most grammy
etc

Hi Silitonga,

This is a Face-Off. If this was your usual list, I'd have added more but I don't intend to convert this into a regular list either.

Plus, the requirements for face-off (of having something similar to each other), I've already stated them above. These four singers of Rock/Pop are considered one of the greatest of their generation.

I'll mention it on the poll.

Edit: I've updated the description

The question that everyone is asking you is: WHO DECIDED THAT!!!

I agree what cinephile said, who decided that consideration? I can put a list of the greatest singer of all time but it would be my personal preference. I mean I love music but I'm no expert.

It actually doesn't matter, but people question the foundation of the list. If you can prove the validity of your list, Face-Off or regular list, it would works just fine.

Hi Silitonga,

Seeing you suggested me to make a poll based on Rolling Stone, I imagine that you trust Rolling Stone.

If that's true, then let me tell you that these four singers, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury, and Prince are on the list of "100 Greatest Singers of All Time" by Rolling Stone. [ link ]

(If you read my list's description, it does not say "top four", it just says that they are one of the greatest.)

There are many other websites that agree with them.


- Some call them an "Icon."


- Some call them a "King."




- Some call them "the greatest of all time."

Believe me, there are many more.

I hope this helps. And really, thank you very much for not posting a provocative comment.

Top 4 according to Rolling Stone. Your article.
"100 Greatest Singers of All Time" by Rolling Stone. [ link ]
They are not your 4.

You have still just chosen your favorites. You have no basis or reason to back up your claim.
John Lennon
Aretha Franklin
Sam Cooke
Elvis
So  you only have 1 out of 4 from Rolling Stone.

Please read this.
FAQ: So You Want to Make an IMDb Poll? Here's How...

2. Be inclusive. We are generally avoiding running polls of the form Choose among my personal favorites of ... A poll entitled Great Organized Crime Films of the 1970s should include The Godfather (1972) even if you are not personally fond of it. As a poll author you are balancing objective completeness/entertainment value/succinctness.

4. Incorporate advice! You may get feedback on omissions and corrections. Incorporate as you see fit (we suggest you take this advice seriously). Advice from staff or poll admins is probably not optional, depending on its nature - there are certain structures that simply cannot work as polls. If you get no feedback - probably not an interesting poll! If you ignore reasonable feedback, then it's unlikely we'll run your poll. While we are able to make minor edits and additions to live polls, you should not depend on this and strive for a complete, accurate poll from the start.

There has been lots of feedback Bonafide. And not just by me. You clearly are using your own personal favorites (which the FAQ suggests you not do). You are ignoring the suggestion of Incorporate advice!  and the part where it says, (we suggest you take this advice seriously). By ignoring said advice, the result is that it will unlikely result in ?????????????? Yes, not going live.

I'm just pointing out the obvious.

Do Not Take My Advice.

Take everyone else's advice.

Or don't

:):)

The poll is not based on the Rolling Stone's article (or any other). I only mentioned it to answer Silitonga and cinephile's question about who considers them as one of the greatest musicians of all time.

They needed proof of whether the words, "These four musicians are widely regarded as one of the greatest musicians of all time", on my poll are made up by me or is it really true.

And I proved to them that they are indeed true and not just made up by me.

But you have just confirmed that the list is made up by you. Just now.
Please take the advice given.
The list is arbitrary.
We have all raised questions.
Please take the advice given by everyone but me.
I'm not to be trusted.
I'm a bad person.
But if you ignore others advice. Then who's the bad person?

I'm still stuck on the "Horsemen" reference.

It is an insult to these popular musicians (whichever ones end up making the final list.)

Advice.
Stephen Atwood mercilessly attacked my poll making 2 years ago when I started. He pointed out the absurdities of some of my suggestions. That criticism he heaped on me made me rethink what I was doing. It made me better.
Will you continue to ignore the criticism?
Or will you do as I did?
I altered some of my polls.
I closed a lot of my polls.
I stopped bumping polls that he gave me the most grief over.
I keep some of them live.
I have revamped some. They went live.
I listened.
I adapted.
Will you?

When I saw "The Four Horsemen" I thought it would be a list of some shitty contemporary singers like Justin Bieber.

Noy THAT'S apocalyptic.

Barbara Ann, there's not enough slots for horsemen of apocalypse these days (even in expanded roster of twelve which we seem to have a pleasure of meeting in 2020) to fit all the notoroious musicians. Not all of which are necessarily bad.

Barbara Ann, sort-of-busy, still sort-of continue to be, but not at all times, fortunately. 

And it's not like me being busy is not an on-and-off thing. Just a very tiring one.

Breumaster,

This poll is not according to Ranker or any other website. I only mentioned those websites above to prove that these music artists are considered great not just by me but many others. Which is a stupid question to ask; "Who said Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson are one of the great musicians?"

In case you didn't notice, I created another list for IMDb poll of great singers according to Rolling Stone. [ Poll Suggestion: The Greatest Singers of All Time ]
