104 Ruby Starr

I have to admit I was completey unaware of Ruby Starr until about a year or two ago when I accidentally found a live performance video of her while searching for covers of Maybe I'm Amazed on YouTube. WOW! Utterly great!

105 Emily Armstrong

At least somebody on this list has proffered a suggestion as to what to listen to! Well done!

If you haven't heard her sing, look up her song "Weatherman"

Magali is awesome singer woman! She sang for Ayreon, Beautiful Sin and of course Virus IV

110 Neko Case
111 Laurie Anderson
112 Sarah McLachlan Sarah McLachlan

Just love that erotic redhead with a sensual voice.

113 Betty Davis

Ex-wife of jazz pioneer/trumpeter Miles, she is credited w/ turning Miles on to Hendrix! She was described by some as the "black Janis Joplin" because of her rawness, her first album featured performances by bassist Larry Graham plus members of Graham Central Station & Sly's Family Stone, Buddy Miles, Neal Schon of Journey, disco dude Sylvester and also the Pointer Sisters! The 2nd album even had Miles! Legendary funk-rock sista from the 70's, NOT the actress!

114 Kat Bjelland

Screaming but controlled and a true musician. Along with Layne Staley made the 90s so specilal

116 Brittany Howard

Lead singer for the Alabama Shakes. She sings like other people wish they could.

117 Renee Phoenix

HOW IS SHE NUMBER 88! How is Madonna a better rock singer than Renee
1. Madonna IS A POP SINGER
2. Renee Pheonix and god given talent and puts so much emotion into her songs

118 Ani DiFranco

Love her voice, love her lyrics, love her guitar playing, love that she started righteous babe records so that she would always have control over her music's sound and her own image.

Its "self-evident" that in order to "evolve", well, "second intermission" "educated guess" "Origami" "Swim" "OVERLAP" "32 FLAVORS"

A beautiful story teller with an engaging truth and rawness. Her music demands being listened to.

119 Terri Nunn

Lead singer of Berlin - great voice. Just listen to Pink and Velvet with the Pink Floyd solo guitar too.
