*** Not analyzing, and not listing. Just some adorations.
There are certain male voices that you just can't help but love.
The silky smooth. (Alan Rickman. Jeremy Irons.)
The low drawls. (Stephen Fry. Ryan Gosling.)
The eery calm. (John Malkovich. Kevin Spacey.)
The soft foreign. (Javier Bardem. Christoph Waltz.)
And then, there is the spunky.
The kind of voice that only certain people can pull off without being irritating, and are typically associated with a fast-talking nationality.
(You know, that "iconic" association with the Irish, Scottish, Spanish, etc? Or is that just me and my acquaintances?)
With that, I give you one voice that I will never tire of listening to:
(^ Click it. Love it. Especially since he is conversing with another spunky-voiced wonder, Craig Ferguson. See what I mean about the accent thing?)
It's got a bit of a Sand-Papery quality to it, doesn't it (ie, Jeremy Irons)? His voice I mean. And he just talks so fast and can whip in and out of phrases like nothing else, as evidenced in the hilarious British comedy, In the Loop.
Whether in Skins, denying Sid his "Asian Fanny Fun" or insulting people by calling them Ron Weasley in In the Loop, I could listen to Peter Capaldi cuss for hours on end and not grow tired of it.
Maybe it's the accent (because apparently all girls love a man with an accent that is "foreign" to them), but I'm pretty sure if I was much older, I would find the man quite dashing.
Thank you, Peter Capaldi. Thank you indeed, Sir, for that beloved voice of yours that you have bestowed upon us.
And how about you?
Are there any voices that you can't help but love listening to?
