Once, someone told me that I was only the second-worst singer in the world.

That's pretty much the nicest thing anyone has ever said about my voice.
"I can't figure out what kind of life this is, comedy or tragedy, I just know it's showbiz. And what if I don't agree with the lines I have to read? They don't pay me enough, the way I see it."

An older lady told me I reminded her a lot of Perry Como. It made me insanely happy.

But, you comparing me to fresh pancakes made me happy also. re: Best Compliment On Your Singing Voice You've Ever Recieved?
I have NEVER met Cheyenne Jackson. I have never hung out with him in his dressing room, he did not tweet me, he never bought me a beverage, and he mostly certainly didn't tickle me. . .that is all.

The closest thing I've ever received to a compliment started with, "Well, that wasn't as bad as...". Or, when someone says 'please' before asking me to stop.
"It does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are 20 gods or no god. It neither picks my pocket, nor breaks my leg." -- Thomas Jefferson

The funniest compliment I ever got was back in college, where an "old-timer" patron came up to me and said, "Not since Madey Padikin have I heard such a terrific voice on that stage!"

I thanked him and smiled cluelessly.

It took me a few minutes to realize he meant "Mandy Patinkin."

I made the congregation at a funeral applaud...I was shocked and embarrassed.

Domingo told me I had an incredible voice. Walked across the room to shake my hand. Needless to say, I was almost unconscious seconds later.

At a bar, after singing karaoke to the Fugees' version of killing me softly, a table of three men gave me a standing ovation while shouting "Best of the night!"

I hope they weren't being sarcastic.
I starred in a short film called Magnetic Personality. Check it out!

not too long ago, I recorded myself singing "The Worst Pies in London" for some friends, and one of them, an Englishman, said I had the "best cockney ever!" to which I replied "awright, mate, fancy a pint or a cop-off up in me digs, then?"

Eh, today at voice lessons, my teacher told me my "ah" was getting too Audra McDonald-y. Granted, it wasn't at all a compliment, but anything I can do like Audra, makes me happy!

Once I was singing in my yard along to my ipod, thinking no one was around. A few days later, my neighbor, who is a vocal coach (which I didn't know at the time), told me that she had heard, and that I had an amazing voice... that was nice to hear.

Well just today, in my World History class we had to make a song about The Age of Absolutism and perform it for the class (I wrote mine to the tune of Pirelli's Miracle Elixir) and I got a standing ovation. That felt good.
I'm not a gay stereotype. I'm a coincidence.

I was just told by a vocal coach who does not give compliments randomly that she has never had a beginner (which is what i am) sound as good as i do. that was cool.

"Well, that was certainly interesting" and then a long awkward pause.

Lets just say singing isn't really my forte.

Oh, and I just have to do it, to make sure the mistake isn't perpetuated. It's received. (Thread titled fixed above.) re: Best Compliment On Your Singing Voice You've Ever Received?

I got told by my director that I sound just like Rosemary Clooney after an audition, needless to say I got called back

I was also told I sound like an older Judy Garland
Fear no more the heat o' the sun, Nor the furious winter's rages; Thou thy worldly task hast done, Home art gone and ta'en thy wages: Golden lads and girls all must, As chimney-sweepers, come to dust. ~Cymbeline
