Largely Forgotten Great Songs by Female ArtistsNed964 The title is clunky I realize, but I had to get some of these great songs down while I had them in mind, and to share them with whomever may be interested. Please add any that you feel compelled to, so I can check them out.
The Top Ten
While on another list, I saw her name and immediately needed to hear the song. Great stuff, and it makes me thirsty. - Ned964
Makes you thirsty... I wonder if the line: "Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell" has had a subliminal affect... - Britgirl
Good one Britgirl. Lol. I hadn't made the connection, but now that you mention it, it's inescapable... - Ned964
Alannah Myles, #1 with a bullet - Ned964
Black Velvet in that little boy smile
Black Velvet in that slow southern style.
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees.
Black Velvet if you please. - Britgirl
This song had a little resurgence in the mid 90's due to its inclusion in the Pulp Fiction soundtrack, but if I wanna hear it today, I gotta dig it up. - Ned964
Two shakes of a lamb's tail
Smoky room, smooth Jazz and a beautiful woman singing to you. It can't get any better than this. - Ned964
A great song of trying to save a fragile relationship. Wow this lady can belt out a tune.. - Ned964
Yes, I put this on another list, but it is so good, I will risk being redundant. - Ned964
Another song that saw a nice comeback when it was included in the Deadpool soundtrack, but I have to seek it out if I ever want to hear it. This is a cover song, done by many artists, I just prefer Newton's version. - Ned964
Really just a cover. The original by Merilee Rush & the Turnabouts is even more rare these days.
Although this got some airplay when it was released, I don't hear it much now. An incredibly talented lady. - Ned964
Chrissy Hynde could fill up this list on her own. The ultimate come hither song for any man. - Ned964
Indeed. Lovely song, although it makes my heart ache. - Britgirl
Great, forgotten gem. - Ned964
Maybe Stevie Nicks greatest song. - Ned964
Had to get one Motown song in there. - Ned964
