Regular readers will know that so far I have shared with you top ten most viewed posts on the blog since it began back in February 2009, the top ten countries that have given With Just A Hint Of Mayhem the most views, rock/ music related books, biographies and autobiographies, my top 10 Bowie songs, my 10 favourite bands of all time, my top ten favourite male artists, the ten greatest gigs that I have been to and yesterday my ten favourite music related films. . (Click here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here to view those again). Stay tuned, there are only two top tens to come after this! They are my favourite albums and my favourite singles. Yes I know that makes eleven in total, but you’ll get a double whammy on the actually birthday itself 🙂
Kate Bush – I fell in love with Kate’s music the day I first heard “Wuthering Heights” back in 1978
Millie Jackson – the sassiest and sexiest voice there has ever been in my opinion
Carole King – not only a great performer but also an incredible songwriter
Karen Carpenter – a true voice of an angel, that voice is a one-off surely
Aretha Franklin – The Queen of Soul was more than worthy of that title
Dusty Springfield – The emotion and soul in her voice still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up
Bjork – she takes no prisoners, a true maverick and a certified genius
Amy Winehouse – I think Amy would have become one of the greatest singers in history had her life not ended son tragically quickly
Madonna – Who doesn’t love Madge?
Roseanne Cash – her songs are stories and her stories are songs. A beautiful voice and great live performer.
