So Yov insisted we only do lists so here is my list of songs with main female vocals that I think are cool but didn't include on my last list. Sometimes because I hadn't heard the song yet.










This song is ... very, very different. I like the lyrics, the video and vocalizings are amazing but also a little terrifying...

Gosh, I don't know that I could name 100 All-time Favorite Songs. It varies depending on my mood. I have my music classified: Classical, Show-tunes, Celtic, Soundtrack, Car tunes, Instrumental, Rock, Alt-Rock/Indie, Metal, Meditation, Light Favs, Oldies, Pop, Holiday, etc.. I have a 5 star rule for my playlist although itunes seems to have gotten rid of that system which is very annoying as I put a lot of time into rating them.

5 Stars: Songs I would be crushed never to hear again. They touch my soul. They tend to have a timeless quality (but not always).
4 Stars: Songs I love but aren't quite something that touches my soul or perhaps they do not have a timeless quality/are trendy/can get old.
3 Stars: Songs that may not be favorites, but they are good songs, nice to have in the mix. They may be fun or of a certain genre. They may be songs that are nostalgic/were favorites at one time or that I might enjoy while I'm painting/in a certain mood.
2 Stars: I don't know if I have any 2 star songs. If they are not at least a 3, why bother? The only reason I'd have a song as a 2 Star is if I'm not sure how to rate it. I might place it there & revisit the song at a later date. It's like song purgatory. :D
1 Star: These are songs that have a purpose; Happy Birthday. An Anniversary song. 'I like Toast'. Holiday music. Funny stuff like Weird Al, The Jackass theme song, Techno squirrel song.

Nope. I don't think I can do this. I tried to narrow my list and I got it down to the top 400ish. Even if I pared it down to 1 favorite per artist/composer it comes to 190. Too many decades to cover. So much good music. And that's still leaving out a lot of amazing artists/songs. :D I have a lot of amazing female artists on my list but it's less than 50% by artist but of the female artists whom I like, I tend to really like their music.

I didn't even try to do 'favorites' - I just did 100 songs I really love from different artists and tried to showcase some that I thought some people here might not have heard before. So... it was really just 100 songs, not 100 favorites. lol

That would be a saner goal. :thumbsup:

There are some awesome songs on that list! I'm familiar with a good many but there are a few I'd have to look up. I've been working on my list for some time.. it consumed me for awhile so I took a break. I should revisit it.

Indeed, it does that. I made a classic rock playlist on a music forum a few years back and I was fortunate to be notified the board was shutting down so I saved it. I've since used it on an RP site and have added random songs to it. I need to make a 'medieval/pagan/folk/dark' playlist...

I'll put in a plug here for the radio program my brother produces, and has been producing for decades, that has a wide ranging mix of popular music, not necessarily the top 10 or top 100, but all interesting to hear.

Listen via streaming: https://www.undercurrentsradio.net/listen
Or via radio: https://www.undercurrentsradio.net/map
Playlists: https://www.undercurrentsradio.net/playlist

The last few songs were by Prince, Wall of Voodoo, David Little Elk, Silvana Estrada, John Mayer Trio...

NE - Because I love the song Creep so much I almost never like covers of it ("you're not doing it right!"), but that marching band performance was pretty cool period my main objection was that it was too short!

I need to finish my list. Actually, I made my list but it's well above the 100 limit so I need to go through it again.

I love 'Creep' and that Marching band aced it.

narya, I'll have to give a listen. I've noticed I'm not listening to the radio as much lately. I miss listening to the radio while driving. I should take a drive in the next few days and enjoy before winter & icy roads make their appearance.

This will always be the "official" video for Creep in my head.

Not really sure if there will be much interest here as I don't think folks here share most of my musical tastes, buuuuuut I put a ridiculous amount of thought and effort (I first decided to make this list back in 2013... (I have a thing with lists...)) into compiling this list so I thought I'd share. So below is my Super Duper Official 100 All-time Favorite Songs list. The only rule I had for the list was that I could only put 2 songs by the same artist on the list. ...

Before I make and share my own list, I'm going to listen to everything already posted in this thread, in case there's something here that I hadn't heard before that should be there. I started at #100 on your list and have listened through #46, but I'm pausing just to note that of your 100 songs, there were 44 for which I recognized the artists' names but not the song title, 1 for which I knew the song but the artist, and 12 where I knew the artist and song -- and 2 of those 12 are fairly likely to turn up on my own list.

I haven't gone through everyone's list, but I recognized at least half of the songs/artists on yov's list and quite a few of his artists are on my own. I'm still trying to whittle my list down from about 204 songs and I believe I only picked one favorite from each artist. I feel it's fairly diverse and spans quite a broad period of time.

Just because Yov's list was 100 doesn't mean yours can't be 204.

Just sayin'
