Largely Forgotten Great Songs by Female ArtistsThe 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
Anyone who's forgotten this gal is sorely low on testosterone - unless you're female, in which case, you just have a bad memory.
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
Indeed. Lovely song, although it makes my heart ache. - Britgirl
I don't know about other people, but I've never forgotten about this song. Dusty's voice was fantastic! - Gg2000
I love this woman's Smokey vocals. This is her best in my humble opinion. - Britgirl
Two shakes of a lamb's tail
Really just a cover. The original by Merilee Rush & the Turnabouts is even more rare these days.
A lot of these songs still get regular airplay if you're on the right station, so I'll go for this one simply because there's a lot more well-known Heart songs out there (most of which are probably even better, mind you. lol) - truckturner
I just love Tracey Thorn's voice!
Ahh...reminds me of my very first crush talking to me at the school Christmas party. Oh the memories. It's a pity I can't remember his name... - Britgirl
It IS a great song indeed. - Britgirl
This is really the only song by Madonna that I really love. Can't remember the last time I heard it. It seems no one else mentions it either. - Britgirl
La Isla Bonita is another good song by her that I actually had forgotten about. Maybe it ought to be on this list... - Britgirl
Great song! More R&B needed on this list. Examples: Brenda & the Tabulations - Right On The Tip Of My Tongue (1971). Brenda Payton excellent vocals. Brown Sugar - The Game Is Over. Female trio from Philly and a great lost song from 1976. Mica Paris - My One Temptation (1988) another great artist with a forgotten hit. There are so many lost greats from female R&B artists.
Someone introduced this song to me last year, introduced me to Joplin in fact. I've loved her and her incredible voice ever since. - Britgirl
Largely forgotten, except by those it means something to. - Britgirl
Dolores O'Riordan - Billyv
Oh...blast. I meant to vote for Straight On by Heart. - Britgirl
Ha! No...as much as I like a bit of Motown, I really did intend to vote for Heart. - Britgirl
