    IMO, Whitney had the biggest song by a female in the last 50 years but Id say Aretha has the most iconic. I will say a few years down the line, I will be saying Whitney's IWALY is the most iconic.

    I would always place it in the top 10 of such lists, but I doubt it is the most impactful. In the same sense as AIWFCIY isn't the most impactful christmas tune by a female, that crown still belongs to Brenda Lee. The Whitney classic (and Mariah classic) have been mighty successful songs with a legacy and HUGE impact, but aren't the pinnacle yet.

    My chart would continue with Barbra's The Way we were and Roberta Flack's Killing me softly and The First Time Ever I saw your face.

    I thought about Dionne.. but I think her evergreen That's what friends are for should be ranked somewhere in the top 30...but not higher.

    Lol, I think you can still login and it just says you're banned etc. So maybe he was hoping for a reprieve.

    How can you say Aretha's "Respect" outweighs her but then say Respect is not iconic worldwide? Impact is impact. Aretha has influenced many stars outside of US.
    When and where did I say that?

    You called it the most iconic song by a female artist of the last 50 years - and in the USA, that might be the case. But I don't feel it is that way outside of the USA, though that wasn't me saying it isn't iconic.

    I love the song - it has an instantly recognisable melody and Aretha sounds immense.

    That is brilliant.

    I think MrL has it spot on with his last analysis.

Honestly when you compare the situations... Janet and Mariah certainly had far more success in Europe compared to Kylie (who is practically a two hit wonder separated by 15 years) in the US.... yet Kylie is the worldwide megastar on par with MJ, Madonna
    I've never seen anyone on any forum claiming Kylie Minogue is on par with MJ or Madonna, if anything I have to recognize Kylie fans are the most mature and they know their fave has had limited success but has been consistent over the years, her fans know that. . . . And about the Europe thing, Kylie is not even that big in Europe (outside UK).

    Regarding Mariah, she is a global icon, everyone knows who she is and she reached stardom and a music career everywhere and her sales were huge everywhere as well, however ever since she switched to R&B she did become a little bit more US oriented than the way she was when she was just an AC star.

    Janet?, yes she is famous around the world and an icon, but no matter how hard someone tries to debate it, her impact was never close as big as it was in North America, she had her good international career but she was way more US/Can weighted than the rest of any of her main peers
    That's a good and fair analysis in my opinion.

    For instance Taylor can do stadiums in Asia and Oceania (even though nobody else currently can, even Gaga back in 2010 didnt) but some people (from Europe mainland mostly) still say she is local because she doesnt reach Gaga's domination back in 2010 in some countries in Europe. The girl was n1 on the european itunes for almost a year but she is still local because her success is disproportional in NA.

    At the end of the day, it doesnt matter where your success comes from, Led Zeppelin was very US/UK oriented and yet they re probably as respected as The Beatles, the opposite of Queen or Abba but they all earned their status.

    Anyways... how you do in your HOME COUNTRY should matter most. To bash Aretha for being biggest in the US would be like bashing Oasis for being biggest in the UK. To try and put Aretha in the same box with someone like Dylan or Joni who were influential and legendary but never lived/died by the singles chart is a total insult to her legacy. Before Madonna, Whitney, et al came around, Aretha was the all time biggest female hitmaker in the US (well Diana would trump her if we counted Supremes and solo, but just as a solo artist she was behind Aretha)

    I am massive Kylie fan and i NEVER saw not one Kylie fan saying that. AL Kylida (fanbase name) usually only talks about UK and Australia where she is only under Madonna in records sales.

    John, people on forums can be stupid (especially if by other forums you mean atlr), no need to get so worked up about it + that Aretha discussion was kinda done and you keep defending her while no one is actually attacking her (or Oasis)

    and the whole legend status, every deluded forum stan will think his diva is the most legendary, successful, iconic, AND the most underrated, that includes Kylie, Mariah, Madonna or anyone else

    Taylor is the most iconic right now, but I much prefer the local Becky G whose hit period (consisting of one hit) isn't any less worthy
