A shout out to that Etta James pick...I'd rather go blind..but there are a fair few artists that are famouss for one particular song.

And by that I mean to the layman or woman. Not some pseudo music intellect that knows about some private family performance that was recorded on home video etc..

I get it with Aretha, The Queen of Soul. But that title goes to Gladys Knight, for me. But we could agrgue that and throw a couple of others in the mix.

I prefer Martha and The Vandellas to The Supremes. And not just for The Warrior's classic.

Etta James' version of "At Last" is quite famous, surely?

Not for the singing, though, surely? Martha's got an absolutely common or garden voice.
Saw her live a few years back.

1. Lena Zavaroni
2. Kate Bush
3. Whitney Houston
4. Cilla Black.
5. Karen Carpenter.

I know - 5 is greedy!

Those who laughed at my choice of Lena Zavaroni - check out "Going Nowhere" on youtube, especially the 2nd half of the song as the camera focuses on her face in close up - mesmerising. She was virtually in a trance when she sang this and it is the audiences applause at the end that seems to bring her out of it. It is really the story of her sad and short life with Anorexia. A beautiful song for an amazing talent who was far more than a child prodigy.

Having seen the story of her short life on youtube ( its in 3 parts) and how she was whisked away at such a young age to the bright lights of London and America, when I watch and listen to her sing this song, I am in tears.

I don't know. I thought I said that. I like the ditties that go on loud when I am halfway through my second bottle of wine.

I also like Diana Ross's I'm still waiting and Upside Down.

Diana Ross has quite a bit of sex in her voice.
I think Aretha should be left out of these arguments, her voice is like a whole section of an orchestra, overtones, undertones, the lot. An extraordinary and mind bending instrument.

Oh yes, Mama Cass and Judith Durham. Not in my top 3 but fantastic nevertheless.


I love Doris Day too! So many great talents!

Ross wasn't even the best singer in The Supremes.

I love that TotP clip where Florence Ballard (who was a bit of a sort) appeared to be in my grandad's words "as pissed as a pudding".

On a similarish note, PP Arnold was/is a terrific singer and also very fit.
