Best Female Singers of the '60s

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Ella Fitzgerald Ella Fitzgerald Ella 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!

62 Joni James
63 Buffy Sainte Marie

Indian singer with incredible lyrics

Great singer song writer and activist

64 Michelle Phillips

Time magazine said she had the "purest soprano in popdom." Her voice combined with Cass Elliot made the Mamas & the Papas superstars. She also co-wrote "California Dreamin'."

65 Sandy 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.

66 Kitty Kallen
67 Kay 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

68 Doris Day Doris Day Doris Day, born Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff (April 3, 1922 or 1924) is a retired American actress and singer, and continuing animal welfare activist.

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

Secret Love listen and enjoy

One of the Icons of her time.

Before my time, but I still love her

69 Billie 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

70 P. Susheela
71 Cass 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.

72 Sally Oldfield

Such a clear sweet angelic voice... not in the list?

73 Timi 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.

78 Samantha 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.
