A couple weeks ago I said my favorite musical instrument is the electric guitar but my favorite thing in the world to listen to is the female voice. I mean what can you say the female voice has it all including being soothing, sultry, sexy, smooth, seductive, sensitive, sensual, sincere, silly and that’s just the “S'”. The female voice just soothes the savage soul within me like nothing else can. I will not even attempt to list my favorite female singers because the list will be too long and I know I will forget some I wanted to post. I love hearing the female voice in every genre of music from classic opera to country music even though I like very few male country performers.  I’ve added more videos that I usually do to a music post but I could add hundreds more.

Jill Scott

Nina Simone

Sarah McLachlan

Dixie Chicks

Keiko Lee

Sarah Brightman

Sade

Dido

Tori Amos

Kathleen Battle

Last one, I swear! Delerium featuring fellow Canadian Sarah McLachlan in “Silence” (not really!)

Okay, so I’m reaching back to the heyday of MTV, but did we ever have sirens in those days!

This song seems fitting, given the theme

Francesca Nicoli, from Ataraxia, one of my favorite bands from Italy (of course) – opera with a sardonic twist:

It just crossed my mind that Bollywood playback singers like Alka Yagnik, Lata Mangeshkar, Kavita Krishnamurthy, etc. can bring even operatically trained Western singers to shame; though, comparing the two classical technical traditions is ultimately unproductive and irrelevant. It’s not a contest. In any case, I’ll save those “Gandharvas”.

My top siren will always go to the inhuman range and transcendent glossalalia of Lisa Gerrard. With Dead Can Dance, a band which single handedly created a genre, performing “Song of the Sibyl”:

P.S. Tori Amos is also in my pantheon of goddesses, as well.
