Which singers have most run out of puff over the years?

As much as I'm a huge fan I think Elton John. He still sounds fine when he writes songs to accomodate his now-limited voice but when he sings his old stuff? Forget it . Age is a possible factor obviously but he also abused his voice heavily during the 80s (drugs, bulimia). I'm quite confident he would still sound good singing his old songs if he took more care of himself.

"I'm Still Standing" original studio version (1983): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bz7ifClpT4g
And live in 2011: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umHZtVX70e4.

Example of sounding good in his 'new voice':

Argh. I have to do this.




But like Elton, songs that suit her new range properly still come across well.

^ Funny that a Marlboro username is the first reply in a thread about singers losing puff! .

Based on this, I believe she can still sing circles, just not as good as before (as in she'll overuse her runs more than usual). She's like Nadal, people keep saying she'll lose her voice yet her vocal is still very strong, slaying each performance but maybe some inevitable hiccups here and there.

Whitney voice was never the same since the 2000s. Celine still has the same tone in her voice but also deteriorate like Mariah. Luckily she's a better 'actor' in terms of singing than Mariah. It's easier to spot Mariah when she's lip-synching.

Christina is fine besides a bit of wear and tear which she'll probably learn to compensate for. Example, half a year ago she sang like this!


Besides funeral performances aren't very fair to judge on. Example, Mariah never sang "I'll Be There" as badly as she did at MJ funeral .

Kelly actually can still hit them notes if she wants to do it. Just that her voice has become raspier than before and with the amount of touring she's been doing, no doubt her voice is going to be affected as much. She also needs a lot of rest to get her voice going.

BTW, is Natural Woman the only time she hits that whistle register?

Her voice was in rather poor condition during her E=MC^2 and Memoirs Era. But her Xmas performances.
