Fergie (Black Eyed peas)...

I liked her until I realized who she was. She is blonde haired blue eyed California type chick who was on "Kids, Incorporated" as a bubbly little girl. She was in one of those generic mid-90s girl groups called Wild Orchid. And now that she is in the Black Eyed Peas, all of a sudden she's "ethnic". I understand that to make it in show business, you have to create some sort of image, but she just does not ring true to me.

She does, however, have a great voice.

I've always enjoyed Annie Lennox's voice. Great range, with authority.

Yesterday I was listening to a song on the radio and I really loved the voice of that unknown woman. I asked my husband who she might be, and he said "oh, come on, it´s Annie Lennox, you should know!". I kept on thinking exactly what you say, Jr, what a great voice. I´d love to sing like that!!

These have all probably been mentioned already, but here's my list:

Tori Amos

Ani DiFranco

Indigo Girls

Melissa Etheridge

Aimee Mann

Cher (yes, Cher. I love her, I always have. Back off.)

Joan Jett

Liz Phair (a, because we have the same name and b, the song HWC... it's filthy and I love it.)

Poe (I've loved her since I was in like 7th grade)

and the ultimate, of course: Madonna.

Grace Jones scared me back in the 80's, her videos gave me nightmares...

On a semi-related note... I like Tracy Chapman, anyone remember or have heard of her music?

Grace Jones... I never liked her, she scared me too with her chicken dress and the Jean-paul Goude influence...

I like very much Tracy Chapman, she´s not pretending anything, she´s sure of herself and a real good singer. I like her style and she´s very discreet. I don´t think female singers must be sex-bombs, at least not all of them...
