  1. If I were hearing voices, I would want their words to be in Sam Elliott’s voice…..ahhhhh so soothing!

  2. if i was hearing voices, i’d want them to be spoken by dame helen mirren.

  3. Tom Waits’ voice has been in my head for a while now. Whether he is a lounger telling jokes, singing sad melodies or leading cheers at sporting events, he has the most versatile voice as far as my psyche is concerned.

  4. I’d love to have Dolly Parton’s voice in my head. Gentle, joyful, calming, and musical.

  5. 5 drinking songs…

    1. Piano Man – Billy Joel
    2. I Drink Alone – George Thorogood
