Jeez, I prefer female singers over males, so I have so many favorites. If push comes to shove I'm going to have to go with Annie Lennox. I don't
think she's ever done a song that I didn't like. So, here's 'Cold'.
Wow..so many. I listen to women far more then men..not intentionally, they just seem to generally make better musicians on average.
Lets see then, some that for year after year never get old: (no particular order)
Sarah Brightman: Awesome classical crossover / opera with some pop
Janis Joplin will never get old
flame red hair and a voice that would scare demons.
Heart: pre 80s anyhow
This woman's voice could blow down a barn. not a big fan when they changed in the 80s to match the glam rock stuff (although Alone was good and
reminded me of their early stuff), but ya...awesome band nonetheless.
Lords of Acid got me through the 90s with a smile.
-warning...erm...its lords of acid.-
(was hard finding a vid that is "tame" enough for ATS..most are either explicit lyrics or requiring sign in to authorize adult content. lol...as I
said, a smile...)
lets hit the 2000's
Ayria..love em, and sort of like em more that they haven't been properly discovered..hidden treasure
love em, and sort of like em more that they haven't been properly discovered..hidden treasure
Grimes: She probably smells like leaves, soil, and burning illegal plants, but her voice is soothing and kinda awesome..even if I can't understand a
damn word she ever says.
(this is perhaps the least odd video she has actually..you want to get truly weirded out, search for her song, Oblivion)
If Wood Elves were real, this is probably how they would look and sing.
Dark, lonely, and awesome.
Die Antwoord -warning, lyrics-
Deserves a mention due to a unique voice never really done before by Yolandi...and is simply mesmerizing
-may make you want to take a shower in bleach after watching-
Anyhow, that's just a tiny fraction of bands and singers that I listen to often...too many as I said (had to delete several just on this list).
Something about womens voices that touches the brain far more powerfully than male voices. Not to say there aren't some awesome male voices out there
(Pavarotti, NIN, etc).
