http://lorinator.feminoise.com/ This girl rocks. And what about Lita Ford


Lita Ford is so great. I completely forgot about her...so bad I know. I'd also like to mention Annie Lennox. I love her voice. The Eurythmics were such a great band back in the day.

+1 for Ella - I love her various versions of Mack The Knife - this is a good one ...

Best ever was the version she did with Count Basie.

Anyone who likes Billie and Ella, try to check out Abby Lincoln - another wonderful female jazz singer.

Cheers,
Tony

Thanks Tony I never heard Abby Lincoln. But if she's as good as Billie Holliday or Ella Fitzgerald I'm game.

Metal Fire cracker is a regular for my daily exercise routine, which is intense. Not a fast song but emotionally intense. Love that song, love that whole CD.

I like KT Tunstall. I like her song and she is lovely. I don't know her personally but seeing her on TV and reading her interviews, she seems to be very nice parson, too.

One of my three all time favorites.

I base these on these criteria

1) Attractive on stage. Call me shallow, but sorry, I think all singers should be attractive, goes with the turf.
2) Able to sing multi octave range, in tune with a musical tone. Like people have felt for say, that past 6 million years, other than with metal heads today. Also no screaming. I want singing. That is why I never cared for Heart. Besides getting fat, she screamed. Ok to be fat, jut not as a lead singer, except for the late Momma Cass, but that was an anomaly, pretty much a one time thing.
3) Play with a rock band, not pop. With rock musicians.

#3 on my all time list (perhaps best voice in a musical sense, but did not do enough songs to be higher). However, definitely top of the list in the cuteness factor. She later married John McEnroe btw, certainly most entertaining tennis player of all time.

That is Bon Jovi before he was Bon Jovi, and Elton John's bass player in her band (now decease). I have seen another video with Letterman's band leader playing with her.

edit: here is the one with Paul Shaffer (Letterman's man). Looks like same period based on hair cut. Bon Jovi still with her. Like the way she wiggles her butt walking off right at the end.
