Anyone else wants to guess who is in my Top 20?

Ahhh the controversial Ms Grande Latte.

She is one of those artists I find that sometimes her 'album track songs' are better then the singles she releases.

I'm going to have to think about that for a bit.......

I don't expect Kylie to be too high. Maybe looking at Top25? But I'll revisit this!
Still waiting if you can guess how high Kylie is in my list...

Ah yes!!! Well I was right so far with her being Top 25 :lol: :lol:.

I'm expecting a #4 position for Kylie 8-) (however, I may be overestimating your appreciation for her, so I might say position #8)

You are funny, SummerPeur.
You don't expect Kylie high, maybe top 25 and now you think she is inside my top 10.
What made you change your mind?
Maybe she is at #51.

Leona had a brilliant debut album. Everything afterward was sub-par, save for "Happy". Still, for songs like "Bleeding Love" and "Run," it's hard to deny her a place among my favourite artists of all-time, especially considering that she was one of the biggest acts in the world around the time I started getting into music.

I've seen other posters refer to En Vogue as the most vocally gifted girl group of all-time, and I'd say that assessment is correct. "Don't Let Go (Love)" and "Free Your Mind" are two of my all-time favourites.

Ariana really won me over with her last album, but she's been putting out fantastic singles for years now. I think "Honeymoon Avenue" is right up there for me as one of her best tracks, if not her ultimate best.

Ah, I love "Please" too! I think Toni stood in the shadow of the vocal trinity for much of her career, but she's rather quietly become one of R&B's finest acts ever. Even as recently as last year, she was putting out top-notch music. I sincerely believe "Deadwood" should have been a #1 hit.

Jeees I can't get into Grande. She looks great and the voice is technically there - but there is NO personaility to the voice whatsoever, and in all her videos, especially for the first few years she was like an oversexualised robot. She kind of reminds me of a what a computer generated popstar would be like. Like a soft porn auto-tuned Stepford daughter.

Having said that I respect how she handled the aftermath of the Manchester tragedy, Break Free is an earworm and I liked Into You. But that's it. I find her much easier to deal with when I don't see her.

As sister Tamar says - Toni Braxton: Living Legend. So. Many. Great. Tracks. A super-distinctive voice, a great catalogue of songs, singles and otherwise and supersexy without ever coming across as slutty.

The list of songs I love is endless, my fave being He Wasn't Man Enough, but also including

Trippin' (That's The Way Love Works)
Please
Unbreak My Heart
Maybe
Yesterday (both versions but especially the original)
Lookin' At Me
Holiday (Celebrate)
I Heart You
The Heat
Spanish Guitar
Gimme Some
Another Sad Love Song
Give It Back
I'm Still Breathing
Hands Tied
and delicious new single Long As I Live.

Love the family reality show Braxton Family Values too.

Christina also has a great back catalogue - so I find it surprising that hits album Keeps Getting Better has so little replay value as a unit. It's not helped by the 4 terrible new tracks. And similarly there's no album I love beginning to end. I must be one of the few that was not a big fan of Stripped, but I liked the success it gave her.

I can't bear karaoke stalwart Beautiful andmy fave is Dirrty.

Other faves are Genie, Come On Over, Love Will Find A Way, Impossible, Nobody Wants To Be Lonely, Your Body and Candyman. I also like guilty pleasure movie Burlesque but all of her songs in that are stinkers.

Ah Cindy and Laura!!!

Two great female artists - I'm glad to see them both so high up.

Cindy has some great tunes, however she also has some really bad ones.

Laura just seems to get better and better.

At #13 it's Linda Eder.

I have all her cd's. One even with an autograph, although we didn't get it personally, but she send it to us by post when we bought one of her latest albums. She is probably the least well known singer in my list, but someone on another forum adviced all Celine Dion and Barbra Streisand fans to listen to her amazing voice. So my husband did, bought one of her cd's (at that time she had two or three albums) and we both fell for her right there and then and have bought every album since.

One of my favorite songs is Bring On The Men.



I love her uptempo big band songs like:
One Bad Habbit
Is This Anyway To Fall In Love
It's No Secret Anymore
I Am What I Am

And her stunning ballads like:
Bridge Over Troubled Water
Vienna
The Bells of St. Paul

Or the latin influenced:
Havana
Never Dance

Total Linda Eder scrobbles: 514 (the first from this list to have over 500 scrobbles)

At #12 it's Britney Spears.

I liked her right from the start and bought her Baby One More Time cd-single back in the day. But I never liked her enough to buy an album. I did buy some other cd-singles like Lucky and Me Against The Music. Because I like most of her hits, I did buy the Greatest Hits CD and DVD. Later I also bought the Femme Fatale CD as I loved the first three singles so much. As I don't have that many cd's by her, she was a great artist for me to discover more of on Spotify, which raised her scrobbles a lot!

Todrick Hall made me fall in love with Britney even more thanks to this short musical: Britney and the Beast.



Songs I really like:
Baby One More Time
Born To Make You Happy
(You Drive Me) Crazy - The Stop Remix!
Oops!... I Did It Again
Stronger
My Prerogative
Overprotected
Perfume
Till The World Ends
Circus
Gimme More
Everytime
