    I feel really attracted to girls talking Stavanger or northern-Norway (Tromsø and other) dialects.

    According to Big 7 Travel, world's top 50 accents. I've only included the Germanic ones, for others see the link:

    1st. Kiwi

    To a novice ear, the New Zealand accent might sound just like the Australian accent, but Big 7 Travel readers disagree. The ‘Newzild’ dialect is outrageously charming. The sexiest accent in the world? It’s official.

    2nd. South African

    Afrikaans is a hugely popular accent with many people across the globe, thanks to their unique tones and Saffa slang.

    5th. Australian

    Pronouncing words long and slow – and often skipping the ends of them completely – is a real turn on apparently.

    6th. Scottish

    Those rich sounds and harsh vowels are a big hit.

    9th. South USA

    Who can resist a slow, Texan drawl? Not us, and not our community, clearly. You’ll also find this accent in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi,Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Kentucky.

    12th. Queen’s English

    Always up there when you think of the world’s sexiest accent. Clear, clipped and completely posh.

    13th. Canadian

    Not to be mistaken for American, Canadians speak with subtle vowels and lots of ‘eh’.

    16th. Danish

    Often considered one of Europe’s most unattractive accents, the Big 7 Travel readers disagree.

    20th. Zimbabwean

    Zimbabwean English is different from both British and South African English accents, with many old-fashioned words and open vowels.

    31st. Dutch

    Those in the Netherlands speak strongly and oh-so nicely.

    32nd. Scouse

    The Scouse accent is highly distinctive, with locals in Liverpool, England piling on the slang.

    35th. Swiss

    Depending on whether it’s more German or French influenced, the Swiss accent can sound vastly different.

    38th. Austrian

    Not quite German-ish, Austrian is more musical, with a slightly lilting sound.

    37th. Norwegian

    The Norwegian accent has a sort of sing-song effect to it.

    41st. Geordie

    The Newcastle accent in England is notoriously difficult to understand.

    44th. New York

    Fast and hypernasal, yet quite charming at times.

    46th. German

    Harsh at times, yet super clear.

    What accent that British singer one the right talks? They said that he changed his original accent to one bit ''finer'' one. How easy that is to native English speakers?

    I find that David Coverdale sounds a bit like David Icke and not too dissimilar to me.

    David Icke and myself were born in Leicester but DC comes from Yorkshire, which is much further north, although he doesn't have a Yorkshire accent that I can detect.

    Perhaps getting rid of his original Yorkshire accent (which is often used to caricature working class people) is what led to claims of him trying to speak posh.

    I agree! The dialects from northern Norway are the most beautiful, at least from what I've heard so far... I wish I could speak like that too...
