Going forward, Sundays will be all about music on Wordsmithonia. It could be a song that is stuck in my head, a soundtrack that I can't get enough of, a feature on a favorite artist or genre, a theme that seems appropriate for whatever reason, or like today, a Top Ten List.
After reading, music is one of my great loves. I use it to relax or get revved up for a night on the town, which rarely happens anymore. It's an accompaniment when I'm cleaning the house, slaving over a hot stove, or when I'm curled up on the couch, reading. The weather can dictate what I listen to, or hearing a commercial can have me going on a Youtube binge for hours, pulling up song after song.
Music is such a huge part of my life, and while I've shared some of what I like with you guys over the years, I want to make it a little more central to the blog. It will give you insight into who I am as a person, as I really do think musical taste reflects personality traits. I hope it will allow you to discover a love for an artist you have never heard of before, or reconnect with one you haven't paid much attention to lately. Either way, I hope you enjoy these posts as much as I do.
Today's post will give you a big glimpse into what I like. It will feature my ten favorite female vocalists of all time, and it wasn't an easy list to come up with. There are so many great voices out there, narrowing it down was incredibly hard. I could have easily done a top twenty list, so don't be surprised if you see another list of my favorite female vocalists pop up done the road.
So with no further ado, here are my ten favorite, in no particular order.
