BTW I love how Born This Way voted for EVERYONE but Britney in this poll and then voted only for Lady Gaga in the other. :lol: I guess B is the competition.

Britney Spears ahead of Queen, Frank Sinatra and Whitney Houston and almost catching up to Madonna, she is great at what she does but seriously. None of her songs will be remembered in 20 years besides maybe baby one more time. She is good at what she does but she is definitely not revolutionary, isnt this suppose to be about the greatest artists or more influential. LOL

No Doubt are criminally overlooked as a serious act.

They came up at a time where the genre of music they were playing was completely uncool, yet with impeccable song-writing and tight musicianship, they refined their sound and wound up with a diamond certified record. Don't Speak should go down as one of the greatest rock ballads of all time.

No one sings vibrato like peak Gwen, and she deserves a lot of credit for that. There are plenty of diva voices out there, but I'm yet to hear a woman in pop music sing with such a fast tremolo/vibrato. Gwen's sound is not the product of any artist before her, she was even discouraged by her Father and his musician friends to take singing lessons as it may have killed her unique style.

Several of the listed artists didn't/don't even write half of their own music, including the ever overrated Frank Sinatra who really did nothing different at all. He's just the swing-era equivalent of the modern day pop-singer.

My other picks would be Queen and Madonna. They actually broke new ground and their influence on current artists is both obvious and immense.

Gwen's solo work ruined her in my eyes. Her albums are awful (minus a 1 or 2 songs).

I've said it before, though, that Tragic Kingdom is an amazing album.

All ND albums are fantastic, aside from Pop Steady. At least it won them some grammys. :shrug:

Gwen always maintains that she did her solo records for fun. There are a few great tracks on those 2 albums, but yes, a hell of a lot of shit. Her voice isn't the same now either.

Is Pop Steady the one with Hey Baby?

I've only got Tragic Kingdom.

Do you like Hollaback Girl, Rich Girl, Wind It Up and Sweet Escape?

Sorry, it's actually called Rock Steady :p. But yes, Hey Baby, Underneath it All, Hella Good and Running were the singles.

Hm, those songs. Well I did like them at the time I suppose - not so much rich girl.

I think Wonderful Life and Early Winter are both amazing though :hearts:.

For some reason her voice in "Early Winter" reminds me of early Madonna.

:worship: I hope they come with some new stuff soon because after 10 years of being a fan, I finally want the chance to see them live!
