Most Memorable 70s Songs by a Female Singer

The Top Ten Most Memorable 70s Songs by a Female Singer

1 I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor

I love this song because it's such an empowering female song. It's like a screw u song to your ex. Also it's such a catchy song.

2 Wuthering Heights - Kate Bush
3 Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves - Cher

Very nice track and Cher's performance is so great! - Irina2932

4 Jolene - Dolly Parton

My favorite Dolly song - just wonderful track - Irina2932

Love the song and her voice

5 You're So Vain - Carly Simon

Can sing every song on the album... she can tear your heart out! LOVE!

Coolest intro ever and those lyrics cut like a knife

Mysterious and sexy song. Every detail perfect!

A pure classic. Witty and sly. Clever and biting!

6 You're No Good - Linda Ronstadt

Simply the greatest set of female pipes. No one comes close for vocal beauty, power, joy and heartbreak.

Linda was a one of a kind blues/country/rock artist in her time and a now pillar in female rock history.. A real sexy/soulful heart throb in her early days.. my first teenage crush before Nancy Wilson hit the scene with her cat-like independence and her own take on female rock..

Lotta soul injected vocals

Cool, clear - great band and a lead singer to kill for.

7 Ain't No Mountain High Enough - Diana Ross

Diana Ross is a legend. Her version of Ain't No Mountain High Enough is phenomenal. Such an innovative song with Diana's beautiful talking and singing voice!

The full length version is classic.

8 Hot Stuff - Donna Summer
9 I Will Always Love You - Dolly Parton

One of the most beautiful songs about LOVE. Not many people know that Dolly performed this song much before Whitney Houston but I adore both versions - Irina2932

Whitney's version was awesome but Dolly's had the song at #1 TWO times and that is extremely rare in any genre!

You've got to be able to feel that real cry in your voice. Dolly does it like no one can. Well, maybe Connie Francis can too.

Once you've heard it you will never forget it. No better accolade for an artist

10 Half-Breed - Cher

Cher is the best

The Contenders

11 It's Too Late - Carole King

Loved it, always..!

AWESOME singer singer songwriter...

12 I Honestly Love You - Olivia Newton-John

Olivia was the IT girl of the 70s! The voice, beyond beautiful! She was truly Totally Hot in every sense of the word! I will forever love this gorgeous lady!

She has such a sweet voice and look about her how can you not LOVE HER! !

ONJ was the the perfect voice for the 70s, her music was soft and elegant and she then transformed into a sexy bad girl just in time for the 80s to come in. Olivia was Totally Hot!

13 Diamonds Are Forever - Shirley Bassey

Without a doubt the best and can sing live also

Wonderful track from James Bond franchise - Irina2932

14 Killing Me Softly With His Song - Roberta Flack
15 I Feel Love - Donna Summer

A very old song that still sounds modern!

Electrónic music at it best in the 70's

16 Long, Long, Time - Linda Ronstadt


17 Because the Night - Pattie Smith

Awesome tune written by Bruce for her to record!

love it!

18 Moonraker - Shirley Bassey

Very beautiful and a bit underrated track from Shirley - Irina2932

The anthem of the woman's movement... she sang this acapella in 2017 in February at the Women's March... she sang in the same register! Awesomeness!
