    Battle of the Sexes
    (solo artists)

    For this round I thought we could have a little fun with the male & female singers of the world.

    Nominate 10 songs from female vocalists that reach out to you

    Nominate 10 songs from male vocalists that reach out to you

    Please pick ten different singers for both male & female in your own nominations

    Everyone can pick the same singers, just use one song for each singer

    Let's see which sex reigns in our final voting.

    Posting a link for each nomination would be ideal, that way others can watch/listen and decide whether they want to include that song in their final ten.

    If possible (not compulsory) try to avoid posting the videos as this slows down the thread.

    Staying with the same format. Once the nominations are complete, I will post the final list and everyone can then check out all the nominated songs and vote for their favourite ten from other member's lists.

    Duplicates are more than welcome, but they won't be included when we take the vote

    To clarify for any newcomers: The idea is, we all nominate songs we like (based on the title/theme of the thread). We then check out each other's nominations and pick a favourite ten from their lists.


    20 songs is the maximum, but if you don't have 20, anything less is fine.

    Everyone is welcome to join in and nominate 20 songs


    Last day for nominations is

    Thursday 2nd March

    And what if the gender is questionable, confusing or misleading?

    Should I think of the best vocalists? Because I don't know who my favourite artists are.

    I'm undecided on how I will approach this. Toyah has been with me since the age of ten and I would feel disloyal to not include her, but, as much as I have loved her, I've never thought she was a great vocalist.

    I already have an Andy Gibb, Tony Christie and Lynsey De Paul song, but I wouldn't say that these artists reached out to me.

    Perhaps Madonna, George Michael, Elton John etc? Would that be better for this top ten?

    I don't think they should be included just for who they are or what they've achieved. That's not to say I won't be leaving them out of mine.


    Don't take the 'reached out to me' comment too seriously, it's just me thinking out loud, in the hope it might trigger a few memories for anyone taking part.

    Tony Christie is an interesting choice, I don't know much about him, but of the songs I do know I've really enjoyed them.

    This was quite the challenge for me. I could have done thirty female artists but really don't listen to male vocalists that much. Turns out I could have done thirty of those too - it just would have taken me a lot longer. :D
