--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BALLOTS FOR FEMALE VOCALISTS ARE DUE BY THE END OF THE DAY JULY 31, 2014.

RULES
1. Each poster wanting to participate is to comprise a list of no more or less than 25 vocalists.
2. This is a pretty self-explanatory list. You have two full months to explore some female sangers. I would suggest hopping on over to RYM to look at some female vocalists lists.

Lists Submitted

Picking the 25 is fairly easy; putting them in order is gonna be a bitch

A few questions: Are we supposed to judge just the singing or their overall musical output (since this is Treefingers I assume the latter, just want this clarified)? Are only individual vocalists eligible or can we rank all-female groups as a whole? If the latter, then what about female-fronted groups? If we, for instance, include Björk, does this incorporate both Sugarcubes and solo or should we include them separately?

Individual vocalists please. Rank them however you want. I'm going to be doing a combination of musical output + how pleasing their voice is.

Also, mods please make this an announcement.

May I highly recommend Yoshiko Sai. Her 1977 album Taiji no Yume is absolutely wonderful.

would emcees fall into this, or are we keeping it with singers?



of the top of my head, i know the following will be on my list: Ani, Bjork, Karen O, Alison Mosshart, Tori Amos. Lauryn Hill and Nicki if emcees are involved.


we could easily do 50.

I listened to Dusty Springfield's Complete A And B Sides 1963-1970 today. In a related story, I think I decided who gets my number one spot. :thumb:

Kind of a strange list category. I think "vocalist" throws me off since the word kinda entails a trace of technical criterion. Female Artists would make more sense to me, but I guess you didn't want to discount female fronted bands like say Asobi Seksu or something. Seeing how you're not too strict on criteria besides for them to just be singers and have XX chromosomes (and that's XX not the XX), I'll play along.

Most of the bands with females in them aren't full female bands. At least the good ones. Warpaint is probably the only one I could think of.

:facepalm:
That's pretty wrong. Right down to Warpaint being your only example.

Are you unfamiliar with, say, Sleater-Kinney or do you just not like them?

I just don't know or like many then. And no I'm not familiar with Sleater-Kinney. What kind of music are they?

Not a fan. But they're not bad.
