Best Female Singers of All Timehayreanmarjon
The Contenders: Page 5
It's interesting to note the wide diversity of female singers we are comparing here. Some like britney are just froth and bubble, some are vocal gymnasts such as Whitney and Celine, some are out and out pop like Madonna. The fact is if you are really after the whole dynamic range that includes sensitivity, ballads and power rock, then there is only one beautiful star: Alanis. If you doubt here 'octave range' try to hear ''one' live. It will make your hair stand on end.
The most beautiful and original voice. With so variable songs and many greatest hits. She is the best when you add up all these things.
I think she is the BEST. Super beautiful/original/clear voice. Not only sings all her songs but also writes all her own songs/unlike so many of the other vocalists out there. ANd.. Her songs are absolutely Genius. She Plays the Guitar and piano! She's Absolutely Gorgeous (inside and out) Love her hair. She's just AMAZING. Definitely should be number 1
Another one of the best judged by idiots top three at leastV 21 Comments
They don't call her Blondie for nothing. She's sexy and very sassy that's why the lads love her! She's a legend that will definitely forever live on. What a super star.
Better than taylor
Such a powerful voice love her!
Shes the best singer ever.
Every teen girl should have a copy of parallel lines or eat to the beat cd
Patsy Cline is an absolute icon who transcended any single genre of music. Even though she tragically died in 1963 in the prime of her career, one thing remains clear... At any minute during the day, there is a Patsy Cline song playing somewhere. Her songs are still heard today in numerous movies, commercials, and television shows. If you've never heard Patsy, go borrow, rent or check out at the library "Patsy Cline's Greatest Hits" and you too will know what millions of fans already know. There will probably never be anyone like Patsy Cline ever again. Her voice was unmatched and she set standards for singing that have been rarely, if ever, been equaled. Regardless of your age... Teen or senior... Patsy will draw you in and be someone you'll never forget, nor ever get tired of listening to.
I think Patsy Cline should deserve to be in the top ten. She had a beautiful voice and she put so much emotion into a song which is not heard today. Today a song is just sung but not with emotion. Her song "Sweet Dreams (of You)" shows the emotion that she could add with her voice into a song.
She did not acquire fans through making a fool of herself or dragging herself around on stage in skimpy clothing, she got fans because she could actually sing. She's the best female singer I have ever heard.
Most unfortunate that perhaps one of the greatest female vocalists of the 20th century gets so very little attention because the record companies can't make any money off of her because she is dead.
Willie Nelson wrote the tune"Crazy"
that when he recorded it went bust.
She did it and it was a major crossover hit.
Many of the women mentioned in this list would give liberty and limb to have such talent.
Makes me think of womans side of a love for a man gone badV 22 Comments
Most angelic voice in the world! Imagine if ABBA hadn't broken up! What other great songs would we have had then? Love the band too by the way
Been listening to her since the 70's and don't plan to stop anytime soon. She has a voice that you never get tired of hearing. Can't say that about many of today's singers.
This lady has the ability to cry with her voice! One of the purest most spine tingling voices iv ever heard gives me goosebumps! And stunningly beautiful too great combination my number 1.
The Winner Takes It All - Listen to this song to understand how pure her voice is.V 111 Comments
Kylie has the most fabulous voice in the world, she makes me feel better every time when I'm sad :))
All the boys are singing I can't get you out of my head right now I bet. She's got a sexy voice and super slim with a fit image.
Kylie is superb with her singing and on stage.....Kylie is always great for me for 3 decades and hope for more....
Kylie the best!V 17 Comments
such an amazing vocal talent! she is one of the very best by far, why is she down here at 143? she must be at the top 10 at least! her songs are so recognizable and unique at the same time, her voice is powerful and has so much emotion!
The Little Sparrow. Vote for the singer who stole my heart with her incredibly heartfelt singing.
She has such a haunting voice. Even if you don't understand French you will be touched by the wonder of it.
She must be top 10 at leastV 8 Comments
cant even begin so ill say only a few words. INCREDIBLY AWESOME sweet awesome. she knows her music!!!!!!
Jordin's Versatility is exceptional.. Shes also a good role model for every one...
I like her...high notes can be reach by her simply
please vote for adele
She should be ranked among the top 3. Sia is no doubt the voice of our generation. I consider Sia and Christina Aguilera to be one of the best singers in the world. Sia has a really unique voice to listen to and all her songs are great. I cannot find a song by sia that I don't like listening to. Sia is perfection, all her songs have very deep meaning and excellent poetry. I recommend listening to her songs 'dressed in black'; a very graceful song, Breathe me, Don't bring me down, I'm in here and moon.
Okay, so let's be clear. This list is ranked on SINGING and not the backup tune. A lot of singer up above rely on the music more than their voice (pink, for example). Sia, on the other hand relies on the raw, powerful and emotional voice. My guess as to why she didn't make it to top 10 at the time of this comment would be because she is ranked way too low to be seen by most people. She should be right there with Adele, which is why my vote goes to Sia (Adele is already high at the time of this comment)
I can't believe Sia is ranked at 223. She has to be one of the greatest singer/songwriters to ever walk this earth. She sings beautifully and she probably wrote your favorite song.
WHAT!? Sia 86! She deserves to be in the top 3! Katy Perry for example isn't better than Sia I'm sorry.V 48 Comments
Here is what you young people need to do before you vote. Go to youtube, put in (HEART Crazy on You 1970's) and see what a real rock singer looks like. Annie never had to use her T&A to sell records because she wrote great songs. Barracuda, Magic Man, and Crazy On You, just to name a few. Key word being (wrote). Ann Wilson is a lady unlike some of the girls on this list.Ann is the voice of rock music and has masterd 7 different insturments.She also has a 4 octive range. And for all you woman out there, Don't forget people, Ann is the first woman to be the leader of a super group, HEART. And in the 70's no one was as cute as Dreamboat Annie. Nada a one.
Please stop with the Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera stuff! Most of the new generation don't know good music from bad. Ann Wilson proves how horrible most of today's artists really are. Almost all female singers use Autotune and don't actually have to sing the right notes. It's an embarrassment to music. Put a REAL singer on top!
Nobody can sing like Ann Wilson. what a voice, your mind will be blown away. her voice is totally unique, so powerful, passionate and sexy. she should easily be number 1. she would blow everyone else on this list of the stage, none of them could live with her. Ann could cover any song by any other singer on this list and make it her own, BUT NO ONE CAN SING HER SONGS and come even close to matching them. Watched Celine Dion on You tube singing "ALONE", it was OK but it didn't give me any goose bumps. I get shivers and goose bumps all over every time when Dreamboat Annie belts it out. In a nutshell ANN WILSON IS ASTOUNDING, MAGNIFICENT, INCREDIBLE. And she sounds just as good now, if not better, as she did 40 years ago. Check out HEART "WITHOUT YOU" Live 1978 on You tube, it trounces Mariah Carey's version. No singer on the planet past or present could ever dream of covering "STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN" and do it justice. Ann has even taken the most iconic Rock song ever AND MADE IT HER OWN ...more
Should be at number oneV 165 Comments
Reba's forgotten more about singing than more than 1/2 on this list will EVER know!
OK. Really 135 she is a country icon, Taylor Swift wouldn't know what the heck to do with country music if it was not for true artist like Reba. She is truly a legend and she should get the praise she deserves.
I love Reba more than everybody on this list. She is country music. such a talented woman
I'd say definitely top 10 this list is lame...V 16 Comments
Parton is one of the most-honored female country performers of all time. She has achieved 25 RIAA certified gold, platinum and multi-platinum honors. She has had 26 songs reach No. 1 on the Billboard country charts, a record for a female artist. She has 41 career top-10 country albums, a record for any artist, and 110 career-charted singles over the past 40 years. All inclusive sales of singles, albums, hits collections, paid digital downloads and compilation usage during Parton's career have reportedly topped 100 million records around the world.
How could anyone argue with these facts?
She is Acually Ranked according to sales at number 6 in the world..
Absolutely no way..Need to check actual record sales...
1. Celine Dion 200 Million Records sold
2. Barbra Streisand 180 Million Record Sold
3. Mariah Carey 150 Million Records sold
4. Madonna 140 Million Records sold
5. Cher 130 Million Records sold
6. Dolly Parton 125 Million Records sold
7. Faith Hill - was Whitney until she stopped recording 126 Million Records sold
8. Shania Twain 122 Million Records sold
9. Whitney Houston 120 Million Records sold
10. Gloria Estefan 110 Million Records sold
Come on, the woman has took the music industry by storm. She's a singer, songwriter, actress, businesswoman, philanthropist, and much more. She wrote I Will Always Love You, Nine to Five, and Trvelin' Thru. She is an icon who has inspired the likes of Martina McBride, Sinead O'Conner, Reba McEntire, Shania Twain, Norah Jones, and so many more artists. You aren't American without Dolly Parton.
A national treasure.V 13 Comments
The most powerful voice, as I have ever heard. I was on Tarja's Kiev concert in 2010))) It was one of the most emotional moment of my life. Thank's a lot to Tarja
the magic of voice passes through my heart... no one can touch me so deep as she does it through her singing
Tarja is the absolute best singer in the world. Her voice is unique! She is amazing on stage, you can really feel that she loves her fans!
I lost faith in humanity, seeing Tarja this low listed.V 234 Comments
Slick, with a few exceptions, wasn't even at her best with Jefferson Airplane. Go listen to "Let It Go" or "El Diablo. " Listen to her with Linda Perry (another woman who should be on this list) on "Knock Me Out. " Many of the other "singers" on this list are so far from in the same league that it's laughable.
Where is Grace on this list? If it weren't for her guts paving the way for female singers, all these low talented "singers" wouldn't be anywhere in music. A true disGRACE not to see Ms. Slick here but then again, her voice was light years away from the majority of this list.
It is shameful that Grace isn't at top ten. Her voice is far better than some of the top ten. Listen to her voice at "Won't you try/Saturday Afternoon" how long she could sing and sing while Balin sings the rest. And not to forgot her two best songs "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit". Her voice is far more amazing than anybody above her (except Janis)
I usually don't like these lists because there are super great singers for different genres. Like Kiri Tekanawa or Renee Fleming for Opera. The older singers back in the blues days. But in today's music types we hear on the radio I have always said there were three or four super female singers...Grace Slick of course. Ann Wilson, Whitney Houston and let's not forget the lead singer to 4 Non Blondes. Most others from nowadays pale to theseV 13 Comments
Music was changed forever when the godmother of punk hit the scene. No other female vocalist has made a bigger impact, nor has anyone else had such enduring style and influence.
you know shes AMAZING. the princess, no, queen of punk rock.
What the heck! Why is she down here she should be up at the top I mean come on seriously people vote for Joan jett come on please
What the hell only 265V 6 Comments
I agree with this one. All mentioned singers are great but sarah mclachlan has such a beautiful voice and she is an amazing songwriter. She is world class and in a league of her own. You get lost in her songs. Love her
She has the best vocal range I have ever heard in my life. There are very, very few singers out there who can even feel a grasp of Sarah's powerful voice. It's a major shame to see her under the top 100. At least Anastacia Newkirk, another vocal powerhouse, is ranked quite high. There's nobody out there with a voice like Sarah McLachlan, however.
THe Best by far. Some of the other nominations in front of her are just a joke. Her vocal range is incredible. Most of the artists mentioned probably could not sing live because they are manufactured. Should be number one without a doubt. I mean? Katy Perry, Pink and Lady GaGa. You people are having a laugh! None of them should be in the top 100.
Sarah has a beautiful voice and to see that Nicki Minaj is considered better than her is a travesty.V 23 Comments
She's truly fantastic, can't believe she's not higher. But it seems like most people voting here is 13-year-olds without any taste or knowledge in music.
Regina has an incredible voice, really unique sound and an absoulute gift for song writing. Her lyrics are as amazing as her melodies. She takes very unorthodox approaches to vocal technique and somehow makes them work. It's a shame she hasn't been rated higher.
Beautiful, weird, unique artist. Her new stuff isn't as good, but there's some real passion and very unique lyrics and songs - nearly all of her older, original songs in fact. I love all the things she does with her voice.
Regina makes my personal top ten.V 5 Comments
The Divine One should be right up the top. She is definitely the greatest singer in the world.
Sarah Vaughan for technical perfection, Janis Joplin for pure emotion.
But how many of the internet generation have even heard of these divas?
I was not in the generation that first enjoyed her wonderful voice but I have to agree. She had a superb tone to her voice and truly was. Devine.
I'd put her Between 18 and 21.V 5 Comments
I love lily Allen a cute character with a great style and sense of humour. Her voice was very good and her videos to go along with that really made sense.
It makes me sick that Bella Thorn is above her.V 4 Comments
