I don't think I've ever heard anything from her, except for Running up the Hill or whatever it's called.
Open to suggestions though!

I'd have expected her to be higher. Babooshka and Running are excellent!

Not to sound too morbid, but when her time does eventually come, I think she's going to be given the full treatment by the UK, in line with Bowie. She's one of the most celebrated artists ever from the UK

Never saw the fuss over that song. Was so surprised how it blew up in the US
it's basically a WBT clone.
no :lol:
Unlike other things that wither, she preserves. She’s a constant in a world of relentless flux. She’s a beacon of immortality. Bitch, she’s Madonna.

Kate Bush is pretty phenomenal indeed.

No. Both songs just have the typical Bryan Michael-Cox sound at that moment.

I can't believe Kate is so low this year :-( such a shame! Words cannot describe her talent and flawless catalog.
Donna has some classics. I even own her greatest hits on vinyl

So glad to see her there!! With influential songs like "I Feel Love", "Love to Love You Baby", her rendition of "MacArthur Park" etc she definitely deserves it.
♡ i bloom just for you ♡

Kate Bush is an absolute legend! I thought she'd chart a bit higher though, at least higher than Alanis and Björk

Donna is not my thing, but she has some iconic bops

Kate Bush should be way higher. There's no one like her. Such an unique and talented musician!
I like some of Donna's tunes.

Bjork usually does well, but I think she'll drop this year. Can't remember what she was last time, but I reckon around 35 this time.

Donna was so good, only really discovered for myself after she died sadly.

The few albums I've heard have all be great. I Feel Love is amazing.

My husband is a huge fan of Donna Summer.
I would have included her in my list if we were allowed more than just 50 singers.
