Default Totally Fabulous UK Divas!

I knew that would get your attention...

So...I was going through my iPod the other day and looking to download some new songs from iTunes and had a small revelation. Almost all of the women I have on my iPod are British! Dido...Joss Stone...KT Tunstall...etc. So, I thought of asking you guys on who you would recommend, seeing as how I seem to have a natural liking to the UK female pop stars.

Any recommendations?

I like Pink and Gwen Stephani

Ooooh Nerina Pallot - up and coming dudette, she is VERY good! Have you got Jamie Cullum over there? He's cool too!

KT Tunstall is fab but you already mentioned her.

Kate Bush is terrific, The Kick Inside (her breakthrough) is my fave cd of hers although The Hounds of Love is just as good.

If you want a bit of rawk, try some Garbage. They're fronted by the lovely Shirley Manson.

Judging from what you've listed, you might like Corrine Bailey Rae or Lily Allen although both those girls put me to sleep.

Hope that helps!

Me too frus. I can't bear Corrine Bailey Rae either, even if she is from Leeds.

omg I forgot to mention Roisin Murphy of Moloko. She has the most amazing voice although her solo stuff has been a bit odd. If you download one song of hers, make it "Ramalama Bang Bang". I kid you not that's the title. It's great althought it might take you a couple of listens to like it.

I like Lily Allen (I have no age excuse) at least she's fun unlike Sandi Thom who I really quite hate.

Miranda Sykes is pretty good, although I suspect no-one on here will have heard of her. Her latest album is called "Bliss" is to be welcomed

Wow...quite a list so far! I have to put away groceries, get the kids from school and then I'll fire up my 'puter with the iTunes on it and see what I can find. I'll let you all know who end up on my mp3.

I have only heard Kate Bush on a Peter Gabriel album and LOVED it. Its the same Kate Bush, right? That was, I think, in the 80's!

Keep the ideas coming, though...I have a big piece of paper for my list!! And lots of space left!!

Thanks!!

Kris

I'm going to treat myself to Jamelia's new album I think. I totally don't get Lilly Allen......must have missed something there. Although I did hear her version of the Kaiser Chief's Oh My God, and thought that was pretty good, in a spoof kind of way, I don't think she can sing either!

Treeze - I'm 23, perhaps it's not your age that makes you like that Lily gal!

How about trying some Texas - I like Charlene Spiteri, and I think she's gone solo now, but I do like Texas

Must confess I like the Sugarbabes and Goldfrapp! (Dunno where Goldfrapp are from mind you. I cannot stand Dido - her phrasing is appalling. Lilly Allen is too cocky gong on about how she is better than Maddonna- I may not like Madge much but she has been around for more than Keith Allen's daughter!!!

I too luv Garbage! Also anyone remember Portishead - from Bristol?

I also adore Lulu, Sandy Shaw, Petula Clark, Dustry Springfield, Shirley Bassey, Nina Simone et al!

But then I also like Diamanda Galas - who is def not easy listening!!!
