Top 3 female singers in your opinion.

I was thinking about this in an idle moment and came up with:

1: Aretha Franklin

1: Dusty Springfield

3: Karen Carpenter

I couldn't decide between Aretha and Dusty so they tied for top spot.

It would be interesting to see who else you really rate.

My number 1, but certainly not under-rated I think. Massively successful with the brilliant Yazoo, which still gets lots of airplay, a successful solo career after Yazoo, and recently awarded the MBE for services to music.

I think I read somewhere that Wuthering Heights was the first single to reach UK number one for a solo female artist who had both written and produced the song.
