I can't remember any of her songs but she's definitely cute. Craig Kilborn had a big thing for her too :P

Just because I am listening to her now I have to say Mika Nakashima. Shure she isnt the hotest girl around but she has a great voice (girls with good singing voices are a turn on)

As of 2006 they have been linked with John Craven (of Newsround & Countryfile fame) to record a new album (Babo On The Kabo; EMI)." b
I'd give the left half of part of my male genitalia for that album to actually come out.

However, so much time has passed that I'd have a hard time seeing them sticking to that same sound they originally had. I've got all their albums/b-sides and while "Blind" had some promise, I think they really showed their stuff on Static and Silence.

Bob, do you have "Life Goes On"?

I also like Patsy Cline. I also think Nina Hagen, whose cover of Ziggy Stardust was superb, very good. Siouxsie was especially good on Israel. And Nina Simone, Goldfrapp (to an extent), Billie Holliday, and Grace Jones.

Sarah McLachlan for me too - I think she sounds amazing singing live.

I was just listening to Static and Silence the other day and this thread pops up...

It never ceases to amaze me when I met another Sundays fan.

Stacey Kent - quite the stylist with jazz and showtunes: Hushabye Mountain, Dreamsville, Easy to Remember
Dusty Springfield - so much soul
Roberta Flack - did I miss her name in the posts above? why has no one mentioned her yet?
Kiri Te Kanawa - wow!
Dolly Parton - on "Treasures" she covers Neil Young's After The Goldrush, Cat Stevens' Peace Train, and the late Randy Van Warmer's haunting Just When I Needed You Most. This is the Dolly you didn't now about. In 2000, I was driving from Manchester to Donnington Park for the annual Club Lotus event and I almost ran off the road in Macclesfield (yes, that Macclesfield) when I heard Dolly and Alison Kraus singing Just When I Needed You Most.


Already Mentioned in Previous Posts:
Ella Fitzgerald - what's not to like, never watched her live, only television
Sarah Vaughan - simply superb, saw her perform at supper club in Monterey, very intimate
Nina Simone - the Priestess, so much pain never sounded so good, saw her live in San Francisco
Janis Joplin - saw her live at Monterey Pops and Winterland

Brit: Thanks for the correction. I must have misunderstood the headline I read about MF.

Another woman that definitely needs some love:

Peggy Lee

Her "Fever" will always be the only version.

And, of course, some more who deserve love:

Joan Baez
Mimi Farina
Mary McCaslan (sp?)
Jacqui McShee (Pentangle)
Maria Muldaur

There is a mash-up of Dolly Parton and Bjork called "Iceland in the Stream".

No, I don't. I'm not a really huge fan, but every time I listen to one of theirs I just think to myself how great it is.
