I over listened to that summer/fall '02 (long story). But really good stuff when you are already in a good mood to keep it going. For sure.

Your top 5 is?


Haven't thought much about it, but Sade would be one, Edith Piaf another. Maybe Ella Fitzgerald, Adele, Diana Krall. I love Shirley Alston Reeves!


I guess I would have to split this up between "best currently & best of all time." Also, I'd throw the disclaimer in there that I'm not a fan of all of their music; my list is based off of raw talent (Sorry Miley...).

Currently:

- Celine Dion
- Martina McBride
- Sarah Brightman
- Mariah Carey
- Alison Krauss

All-Time Top-10

- Whitney Houston
- Maria Callas
- Ella Fitzgerald
- Karen Carpenter
- Etta James
- Aretha Franklin
- Celine Dion
- Eva Cassidy (a tragedy that she was "discovered" posthumously.)
- Reba McEntire
- Bonnie Raitt

I hope this isn't in order. Ella could mop the floor vocally with Houston. In addition she was the great interpreter of the Great American Songbook instead of pop crap of the 70s & 80s.
