Coolest Ladies of the 80's

Post by avoidfreud » Sat Jan 05, 2008 12:57 pm



So i've been compiling a list of my favourite female singers of the 80's. Who would you add to this list?

10,000 Maniacs (link for \"My Mother The War\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/6212770466d6ab/
* a cool early track from the Maniacs*

Cocteau Twins (link for \"Crushed\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/6213455464acac/
*absolutely sublime*

Cowboy Junkies (link for \"Blue Moon Revisited\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/62128711f9a9be/
*does anyone sing more seductively than Margo Timmins?*

Dalbello (link for \"Gonna Get Close To You\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/6198615e49875e/
*as Carole Pope once said: \"When you think eyebrows...and you will!\"

Debbie Harry (link for \"Liar Liar\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/61983649381b86/
*cool cover from the \"Married To The Mob\" soundtrack*

Eurythmic (link for \"Savage\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/621298244fc03e/
*this is Annie at her best*

Everything But The Girl (link for \"English Rose\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/62130250c4a590/
*if you're a fan of The Jam check out this amazing cover - if you're not familiar with early EBTG it's some of their best work*

Grace Jones (link for \"The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/6198285502dbd5/
*the queen of cool*

Jane Siberry (link for \"Follow Me\")

*love, love, love this track*

Kate Bush (link for \"Hounds Of Love\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/619858122a7ff5/
*awesome voice, awesome song*

Kirsty MacColl (link for \"Fifteen Minutes\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/62131128020c9d/
*if you only know Kirsty from \"New England\" and \"Fairytale of New York\" you really need to delve deeper into her catalogue - sheer genius and tragic that she is no longer with us*

Laurie Anderson (link for \"Sharkey's Day\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/6198406e95fe0a/
*nobody does performance art like Laurie Anderson*

M+M (link for \"I Start To Stop\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/62131791673794/
*call them Martha and the Muffins or M+M, they're great either way*

Michelle Shocked (link for \"Lovely Rita\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/6213222432c158/
*great Beatles cover - missed her recent performance in T.O. - anyone happen to catch it?*

Parachute Club (link for \"Boys Club\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/61985248d85b8b/
*not sure if this band got the credit they deserved - this is a great track*

Phranc (link for \"Everywhere I Go I Hear The Go Go's\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/6213283b01f9c7/
*if you've never heard Phranc check her out - this song's a riot*

Pretenders (link for \"Cuban Slide\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/621334476e6ff1/
*love this track from \"Extended Play\" from one of the greatest singers period*

Rough Trade (link for \"Deca-Dance\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/6213378499a735/
*Canada's original trailblazers - \"Piss on your conditioning!\" she screams. Anything you say Ms. Pope!*

Sinead O'Connor (link for \"Mandinka\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/6198436ff4b8a3/
*still my favourite Sinead song after all these years*

Yaz (link for \"Goodbye Seventies\")
http://www.zshare.net/audio/61985525d3bb74/
*great synth music, incredible vocals*

Coincidentally I heard "Duel" yesterday for the first time in years...I recognized it immediately but couldn't have told you who sang it before that.

Cool.

"Nobody's Diary" is probably my favourite Yaz tune. Have you heard the extended version?
