Female Pop Voices

Female singers. They can be classic pop stars or classic rockers, and some qualify as both.

Today’s medley features the “pop” side because I didn’t have the heart to blast Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, or Ann Wilson so early in the year. πŸ™‚

I promise to get to them down the road, but I have chosen to take the softer approach this time around. Legendary hit songs from some of the greatest vocalists from the world of female singers, and a video performance for the ages at the bottom.

    Hey Ray, you know when I saw what you were doing today my first thought was, β€œI guess Ray is feeling lazy today, this is way to easy”. I changed my mind as soon as I saw the artists you selected. All of their catalogs are so deep I could spend all day just trying to pick one Cher song! Tragedy always seems to slip into the classic scene and today is no exception with the untimely death of Moma Cass and the loss of Linda Ronstadt’s voice. The consoliation in both those cases is the volume of work that we do have. Thank you for including Betty Everett, she is a wonderful talent and her work should not be forgotten. I am not really a fan of k.d. lang but she does a great job with this song.
    Thanks Ray for a great way to start the day,(and I am holding you to your promise of Janice, Grace & Ann!)

      The “lazy” thing will happen on Friday when I re-run the ridiculously long Elvis Presley medley again.:)
      Have no fear, I will keep my promise on the “girls” and I’m very glad you enjoyed the softer side today.
      ROCK ON, BRO!

    Women ROCK! Loved the arrangement you put together! You certainly have a knack for making everything fit together into an ideal presentation. And then you even give us the bonus of k.d.’s chilling rendition of a beautiful song. Thank you!!! XOXOXOXO

      Thank you, Wendyl ❀️
      Women do rock!
      I think k.d.’s version of that song is the best I have ever heard. She has such a pure voice.
      Glad you enjoyed it all!
      XOXOXOXO

    Mmmm the smooth soothing Mama Cass nice start to an incredible medley of exceptional female voices!
    Bang Bang is a favorite. Linda was singing my anthem to my despicable ex. So sad that she lost such a beautiful voice. KD…loved her from the first time I heard her sing. I will never forget her singing Hallelujah at the Winter Olympics.

    Another great day, Music Man

      There will be another “females only” medley on January 13 but it’s going to be more rock and roll than this “pop” version.
      Thanks for writing. πŸ™‚
