I haven’t done top-5 in music area for few months and I think it’s time to do another one. The last time I did was my top-5 Radiohead’s songs (which were quite difficult to write). I have shared my top-5 British Band in a post called Invasion of the British Bands, I really like those bands from the great Britain. I think it’s fair to share about my favorite female singers now.
I have been a rock music fan since the beginning of time (meaning since the day I love music), it’s not easy for a female singer to capture my attention…and that’s why, in my whole life, I have only 3 favorite female singers, for the rest of the female singers I only like some of their songs. The other 2 singers belong in a band.
Although I titled it as top- 5 female singer, that doesn’t mean it refers to females with the best voices in the world (except for my number one singer, for me she is the Goddess of all female singers). Most of these women are voted because I love their songs and of course their voices. I admit Mariah Carrey has wonderful voice even better than my 2nd female singer, but I do not like her songs (I only like several songs)…and for that she is not in my list.
My list, as always, is 100% my preference…Do Not Complain and said another female is much better because that’s yours NOT mine. However, I would love for you to share your own version of top-5 female singer in the comment 🙂
Now, here are mine:
#5 Van Tomiko of Do As Infinity
Do As Infinity is in my top-5 Bands from Japan (if I ever made one). I really like their music and of course Van Tomiko’s voice. She has nice high voice that is so typical Japanese singer. In my eyes, Tomiko is the most beautiful one out compare to the rest of my favorite female singers 😉
I share with you one of my favorite songs by D.A.I called Oasis
#4 Anggun C Sasmi
Anggun is one of Indonesia’s Prides, I will write a special post about her in Indonesia Banget one day because there is so many great things about her. For now, let’s just talk about why I like her, apart from her lovely personality. I really like her deep voices. She had wide voice range. Her songs aren’t pure mellow songs (like most female singers)…there is a trace of rock in it.
Here is one of my favorite songs by Anggun, Savior.
Shakira is my second favorite female singer if I only count the list as female solo, but she got pushed to number 3 because I included band singers in this list.
I fell in love with her voice when I saw her in MTV Unplugged. Her voice is really one of the kind. I like how she played with her voice and most important, I like her songs. She mixed many culture and genre into one. One thing for sure, her songs are not pure pop music.
However, I must say that I like her old innocent look rather than her new trashy image. Despite my dislike on her appearance, I still enjoy her songs and her voice.
This video is one of my favorites in MTV Unplugged
#2 Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries
The Cranberries is the first Ireland ‘product’ that I have ever known and if I made a list of top-5 best from Ireland, Cranberries will come in second, right after Cillian. I adore The Cranberries ever since I heard Zombie.
Dolores’ voice is amazing and her songs are always fun to listen. She also puts message in her songs.
The Cranberries came to Jakarta last month but I couldn’t seeit because it was too far from my house and I don’t have vehicle to go there 😦 . I will forever regret it.
And of course, I share one of my favorite songs, Promises.
And here comes number 1….the one and only…. (drum sounds)
#1 Celine Dion
She is the best, the greatest!! She has the most beautiful and powerful voice I have ever heard. She is the only pop female singer that can steal my heart and my ears.
Her songs are not rock, they are pure pop but her beautiful voice and personality make me love her songs.
Just listen to this song, Surrender, she was awesome!!!
So…please let me know your favorite female singers 🙂
