Best Female Singers of the '60s

The Contenders: Page 4XW

61Ella FitzgeraldElla Jane Fitzgerald was an American jazz singer often referred to as the First Lady of Song, Queen of Jazz and Lady Ella.

Cannot understand why she hasn't been mentioned previously. She was the greatest.

The Sweetest tone of any singer, she set the standard

One of the most beautiful voices on eath

No one could ever, and never will be able, to sing scat like Ella!

62Buffy Sainte Marie

Indian singer with incredible lyrics

63Billie Davis

60's British songbird, should have been much bigger than she was. Best version of Tell Him.

Great voice 'Tell Him & Angel Of The Morning' outstanding

64P. Susheela
65Kitty Kallen
66Cass Elliot

A great singer. One of the very best. She did wonders for the Mamas and Papas. And she died too soon...

How can Michcell Phillips be higher on the list than Cass? Enough said about your list

Mama Cass is at number 13 as well. I think someone should aggregate her scores.

67Kay Starr

If she was not one of the Best, her singing career would never have lasted for so many generations.

'Wheel of Fortune' one of the best tracks ever

68Doris Day

I don't need to say any thing about Doris. It's all been said before.

I love her early jazz with big bands. That's who she was at heart.

Before my time, but I still love her

73Samantha Jones

Liverpudlian songstress with a voice that was a close match for Dusty Springfield. Sadly her big break never came, but what an amazing potential.

74Sandy Posey

Sandy Posey is a spectacular singer who sang The Nashville Sound. Sandy was also singing with Elvis, and was nominated for a Grammy- Best Female Pop Vocal Performance 1967. It's time people get over Born A Woman and Sandy becomes a household name!

If you hear her music, you'll agree that she's the best female vocalist of the 60s. Don't know why she isn't as popular as these superstars even when she has more great songs.

75Timi Yuro

Very underrated and though she recorded some material with bad arrangements not suited to her voice, but the song Hurt and many others put her at the top of the soul charts. As far as power and emotion, she's at the top of the list.

80Carol Deene
