It seems I'm hooked on making lists again. This one has been made by trawling the net for greatest female singer lists and adding the results together. No more than thirty were taken from any one list. Like anything of this nature, not all will agree... and some will complain because their favourite isn't here... but there's a magical 'Create List' option for problems like that - crack on! Anyway, here it is... and there's not a TikTok star in sight.
