    That is a southwestern English accent. I can't be 100% certain as the accent isn't that strong, but I'd guess he comes from Wiltshire, Hampshire or Dorset.

    I also like the accent of this singer



    Instead of just saying "Nile" or "Smile" he says something like "Nayal" and "Smayal"
    That's a London accent. The lead singer, Suggs was born on the south coast but grew up in Camden Town in central north London. His accent is pretty typical London, but not Cockney, which is slightly different and from east London.

    Here's a guy with a great, greeat Geordie accent. He's a superb actor that I doubt anyone outside of England has heard of, but I could just listen to his accent all day.

    I heard the accents in Antarctica are lovely this time of the year.

    I love that accent too. Sounds even better in their own Scandiwegian language though.

    BCR has mine. British best, Southern worst.

    A woman with a sexy, throaty English accent makes me melt like butter. Conversely, there may be nothing on this planet that makes my dick more flaccid than seeing a 200 pound woman from Alabama say, "Hey y'all".

    what about a 200 pound man?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
