    Certainly none of the charlatans on that list that's for sure. Nina Simone maybe and I always loved the dulcet tones of Joan Baez too.





    And more recently I've been very taken by the voice of Melody Gardot...

    I heard that Shirley Bassey is pretty good.

    On that list probably Whitney. I really like Janis too.

    As for right now, this chick I think is really good:



    Song isn't great, but the singing is impressive.

    Florence from Florence and the Machine is also good. This is kind of a cool video:



    One more. I think she's really good and not many know of her:

    From the list I voted Aretha of course, but like some people mentioned don't forget, Kate Bush, Amy winehouse, chaka khan, Etta James, Billie holiday. We'll fuck it the list would be to long.

    Her Barracuda cover with AinC was money. Much respect, her talent was wasted on pop Country Music.

    Joni is a great pick. She's arguably one of the best female musicians ever. Her singing, guitar playing, song writing, etc. I met her once in Sechelt, BC, she has a home there...one of the few times I was a little tongue tied.

    Absolutely.

    But why are the choices all pop warblers. Except Aretha of course.
    I love Amy Lee's voice. That's girl can sing.

    Glad to see some love for Liz Fraser.

    I'm a sucker for Susanna Hoffs too.
