I'm a fan of Janis as well but she's done a lot of really bad music as well as good, very hit on miss in the discography department.

Definitely Tarja Turunen, formerly of Nightwish.
By far my favorite of all time.

@ Bonzolead,
Yeah, she's from High road Easy, right? I really like that song :)

I don't think anyone added Katie Melua, Corinne Bailey Rae and Adele to the list, right?

Katie can truly stir my heart:

(although I must say that this video is quite shocking...)

Corinne:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRzDWXnm07A
Very fun to drum along with as well!

Adele:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIfy3kQg61o
She's got a very nice raw kind of voice.

Throwing some love to the Metal crowd:

Liv Kristine (Leaves' Eyes), Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation), Charlotte Wessels (Delain), and the female vocalist that I would not like to annoy in anyway, Angela Gossow (Arch Enemy).

Always preferred the sound of female voices, something about the musicality of it I guess.

(Although Liv - and/or other female vocalists in the metal/gothic genre use rather 'air' than 'true voice' - but it's beautiful to my ears nonetheless)
Tarja Turunen (has been mentioned - superb voice, ideal for Nightwish but won't work in every music situation)
Kari Rueslatten (with The 3rd And The Mortal)

Loreena McKennitt
Karen Matheson (with Capercaillie)
Moya Brennan (with Clannad)
Sara Brightman (selections, and not her classical stuff for me)
Taylor Mills (married to Todd Sucherman)

...and lots more which I'm unaware of unfortunately.

(PS: For my main recording project - gothic metal inspired by Theatre of Tragedy - we plan to have female vocals exclusively. I like that combination.)

like to add , asides from my latest post, i forgot this women, my alltime favourite

anita o´day http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agp2on83hrA

if you dont know about her. i would take the time to listen to various recording from the gene krupa "left me off uptown" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoSAPaThWJE (1941) to her early 60`s stuff (especially the concerts from japan & sweden) she didn´t had the best technique and range ( like ella) but her timing was flawless. Her sensitivity, swingin and improvisations was superb. so natural.

I know... it was a joke (I always forget the ":)").

I love Rush actually... It's just that "their music good, but singer sucks and sounds like a girl" is what I always hear from the haters.

While Angelica is quite pretty looking, I wouldn't like her to sing in my band :-))

Angella Gossow; She sounds very appealing to................................cement? "you tell me"? I don't know I barely got by the "music" intro. There's always been wasted time in the studio, I'm guilty of that no doubt but whatever that was I just heard is so ridiculous it couldn't possible go beyond a 13 year olds mentality. Riffing double kick drum singles has to be the most boring thing to play, listen and record ever on a drum kit add in that click attack and I couldn't shut off fast enough. I hope its a goof by the girl and she has a beautifull voice but I have a feeling thats her "best" stuff hahahaha. Brutal! Doc

In fact, Geddy is a way better singer than most female vocalists. Nothing wrong in my book.

Angela Gossow... is a woman who has mastered the fry/scream technique. (Basically everybody who cares can learn this.) Have you heard her normal voice?

Check out Sabrina Classen (with Holy Moses) - she has a fairly heavy voice also.

- Dusty Springfield - her albums always had great drummers, most notably around the early 70s, when she was recording in the USA with the Atlantic and Philadelphia rhythm sections and the likes of Carole Kaye was on bass.

- Imogen Heap (solo artist...but check her doing 'Blanket' and 'Rolling & Tumblin'' on Jeff Beck's '...Live at Ronnie Scott's DVD)

- Bonnie Bramlett during her Delaney & Bonnie days. Here she is with Sam Clayton (congas) and Kenney Gradney (bass) - both later of Little Feat - and drummer Chuck Morgan. Prior to this band drummers included Jim Keltner and Jim Gordon, and on the 'Home' album', Booker T & the MGs with Al Jackson Jr.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klbW-cSZ5Ac

- Kate Bush...especially the earlier years

And all those chicks we've heard doing back-up vocals...Claudia Linnear, Merry Clayton (Sam's sister, best known for the sensational wailing on the Stone's 'Gimmer Shelter'), Vicki Brown, Sam Brown, Madeline Bell and Lesley Duncan (Dusty's go-to gals), Vannetta Fields, Clydie King, Patrice Holloway...So, so many, and each worthy of their own stardom.

Still worth it. Like the time I added Phil Collins to a list of great drummers who are deceased. It was funny to me but not to everybody.

So here is something else not funny in a hijacked thread kind of way, My favorite female vocalist is anybody who is not that shrew from 10,000 Maniacs.

There are lots of female singers that I like but I would like to add a few that have particularly strong voices such as Jackson Brown's background singer - Rosemary Butler - on "Stay" (Running on Empty).

Of course Dame Bassey also comes to mind; especially "History Repeating" (Propellerheads. And Nina Hagen has such range.
