The best female singer out of spice girls and she writes her own songs where most singers don't

46Amy Macdonald

Amy should be in the top ten. She absolutely rocks and is at such a young age with such a massive career ahead of her. She is a very independent singer which makes her unique and she has amazing vocals. This girl is going to make it further than everyone thinks because she is brilliant!

Her voice and different accent is certainly a winning combination. Her vocal gift accompanied by her energy on stage makes her a great performer despite her young age. She'll certainly make it to the top in her career, apparently not in this list though.

Beautiful looking and beautiful sounding vocals. A hugely talented 20-something Scottish singer/songwriter like KT Tunstall but better

Should be in the top ten on this list. Writes her own songs, plays an instrument. Not like so many of the karaoke singers in the first 60.

Wow what a voice... So many years since she died. "Who knows where the time goes"

Like no other - been listening for over 45 years and her voice still moves me.

51Denise Pearson

An amazing vocalist. I have always been a fan of Denise from her Five Star years when I was growing up as a child in the early 80's. To finally have her first solo record was well worthy of the wait. Imprint is the album of the year 2014 for me. May I add her take on the Five Star classic Slightest Touch with 7th Heaven remixing it is truly super. Denise shows every amateur and upcoming teeny boppers how it really should be done. This woman still has it all. And she is such a beautiful person and is doing something she loves for her passion of music not because she wants the fame like some of today's artists.

That Voice of hers says it all really ;-) Denise surly knows how to do it the right way and really should be up there with the best of them. That voice will always deserve a number one hit in my opinion. Awesome talent and a beautiful woman :-)

For 30 years Denise has been singing. She has a voice that has an amazing range. A very understated singer. See her live if you get the opportunity because this woman can SING!

Amazing vocalist who should be in the Top 10!

52Olivia Newton-JohnOlivia Newton-John is an Australian singer, songwriter and actress. She is a four-time Grammy award winner who has amassed five number-one and ten other Top Ten Billboard Hot 100 singles, and two number-one Billboard 200 solo albums.

Agreed-Olivia is legendary at this point - #1 on the Dance Charts recently- in the top ten singles of all time with the #1 hit of the 1980's Physical- in the top 20 best selling artist of all time according to Billboard- she is the only female act from her era to be represented-and the only act outside of the Beatles to claim both all time top ten and top twenty artist position- this lady is a quiet giant-who really isn't mindful of recognition- but popularity and endearment of her fans might dictate much deserved acknowledgement

Why is she not here? She's one of the most successful female singers of all-time, and NO ONE has her amazing vocal clarity. Definitely one of the greatest.

53Alison MoyetGeneviève Alison Jane Moyet is an English singer, songwriter and performer noted for her bluesy contralto voice.

Along with Cindy Lauper and Madonna, Alison Moyet was one of my favorite singers in the 80's (remember her being number 1 in Top of the Pops) and one of the most talented and complete singers I ever knew... Probably not too many young people know her, that's why she is only no 41...

Superior live vocalist, can sing any genre and give it pure quality

Alison, I think should be in the top 10. She has a richness in her voice

She is fabulous

54Helen ShapiroHelen Kate Shapiro is an English pop singer, jazz singer and actress. She is best known for her 1960s UK chart toppers, "You Don't Know" and "Walkin' Back to Happiness".

A big voice when no more than a North London teenager...now more than FIFTY years ago!

55Tracey Thorn

She has the same name as me and I might be famous because I am on xfactor

56Corinne Bailey Rae

The girl can sing ( better than most) this talent will be remembered far beyond pop culture.

I love her heart and soul jazz singer

57Sheena Easton

Her pop singles are not indicative of what a talented vocalist Easton is. She is versatile, has amazing control of her vibrato and breathtaking range. One should investigate her catalogue to hear a truly exceptional vocalist.

Probably the best singer the uk has ever produced. Very Under-rated in the uk but still appears regularly in the US where she was massively successful.

Love her song telephone love it

She is the best... Forever

60Kiki Dee

Should be #1. The most underrated female singer-songwriter of all-time.

Kiki is so much better than all the X factor imposters that populate this list. None of whom would survive in the 70's when singers had to sing live without auto tune or miming.
