Subject: Best 80s Female Vocalist

Written By: cinnabon on 03/13/08 at 6:11 pm

After seeing the thread for male vocalists I thought I would give some equal time to the women - here are some of my favorites to start with:

Taylor Dayne
Anita Baker
Jody Watley
Samantha Fox
Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart

I'll probably think of more later.  :)

One of my favourites was the late Laura Branigan.  Those high notes she hit on 'Gloria' were just awesome! 8)

Taylor Dayne, Annie Lennox

Deborah Gibson, quite good for a teenager and much better than Tiffany and countless Disney products from this decade

Karla Bonoff - Personally
Daniela Romo - De Mi Enamorante!!!!
Kate Bush
Whitney Houston (of course)

Annie Lennox was the best female vocalist of the 80's for mine.

As far as female ARTISTS go I also liked Suzanne Vega (not the greatest vocalist but a unique sound)...
