Here's Tina Turner with the Phil Spector produced River Deep Mountain High 



Bonnie,

I didn't realize Amy Lee covered Going to California.  I really liked the debut album from Evanescence. 

If you like Amy Lee, check out Christina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil 



Or Sharon Den Adel from Within Temptation 



Or Tarja Turunen, formerly from Nightwish

Not sad.

Three from Darlene Love released under her own name, not as a group.

"Wait 'Til My Bobby Gets Home" (1963)



"Stumble and Fall" (1964)

How has nobody posted this one yet?  A personal favorite of Brian Wilson



Ronnie Spector would reprise this years later with Eddie Money

Not so many good songs (the fault of the eighties again), but a memorable vocalist.  I was going to post "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" but couldn't bring myself to do it.

Wow! Lots of clips, not many votes. 

Verden, kds, Pete and t, thank you very much for yours. 

t, that dating thing with Dusty was hilarious. 

I'm guessing her date with Mr Greaseball didn't work out.

Judging from this week's official battle clips, it appears that good looks or sex appeal may be a prerequisite for a female singer to be successful. Not necessarily:



Here are a couple of my all-time favorite female singers:





Here's a contemporary female singer with a gorgeous voice:


And another contemporary lady with quite the voice. Sadly, gone too soon through her own undoing:



Will be back over the weekend to cast my votes.

That she and he are weird. But here's more videos and no more votes (I voted and didn't even have to wait in line):

It's a Petra Haden jamboree!

"John Hardy Was a Desperate Man", Petra Haden and (guitarist) Bill Frisell, 2003 (I paid 89 cents to buy this so somebody besides me better damn well listen to it!)



"Psycho Main Title", Petra Goes to the Movies, 2013



"Rael", Petra Haden Sings: The Who Sell Out, 2005

Anti-Raquel posting - some ladies with REAL vocal talents (although RW always used her lungs well). 

From Corinne to Lily

You all know that I'm a Rhiannon Giddens fan:

Yes, an Eddi fan as well:

Maria Muldaur recommends Bessie's Advice:

I'm for Ella's advice (but in reverse)
