I don't know about any of you, but I have a thing for voices. I don't just mean a quiver factor, either. That's a separate category really and is different for everybody. For me, the quiver factor is maxed out when the voice is male (that's just how I'm wired), deep and gravelly. There doesn't have to be an eye candy factor because it's all about the experience of the voice. Favorites of mine are Michael Wincott, Lance Henriksen and Will Arnett. None of these men fit any kind of societal measure of attractiveness but their voices - whoa mama. Throw an accent in there and I'm all aquiver. Favorite accents for me would be Irish, South African, and southern U.S. (particularly cajun/New Orleans area).

But quiver factor aside, there is another category of voices that are just plain glorious to listen to. They make your ears sigh in bliss for their passing through on their way into your brain. These are voices that could be saying anything and it wouldn't matter, within reason, because the sheer joy of experiencing them is far more important than the message being conveyed. Voices that fall into this category for me would be Susan Sarandon and my all time favorite, Morgan Freeman. He has the most incredible voice and his delivery just makes the experience rapturous. I could listen to him read the dictionary for hours upon hours and enjoy every second of it. He's just that amazing. There's a good reason he provides the narration on any of his movies when it's required
