This thread will be filled with sexism and people rating their desire to have sex with any musician posted.

That said, I don't know about greatest, but Patti Smith is my personal favourite.

Now I'll leave before someone replies to me with "oh it's sexist to find women attractive now?"

Personal favorite is St. Vincent but I don't know if I'd call her the greatest. Bjork seems like a pretty good choice. Can't think of very many others I'd be comfortable calling better (not necessarily just enjoyable to me). Haven't listened to Joanna Newsom though, who always gets praise around here.

Someone above mentioned Carole King. I haven't listened to her too much but I've enjoyed what I've heard. Same with Joni Mitchell.

Forgot to put Melanie Safka, Patti Smith and Dolores O'Riordan.

Which ever one you have enjoyed the most so far.

It was probably a cavewoman who sung amazing songs that went through hundreds of key changes that she made up while she was sitting in nature.

If you are looking for GOAT female music, definitely listen to Tapestry and Joni Mitchell's album Blue.

Also, check out James Taylor's covers of Carole King songs. It never really clicked how brilliant the song "You've Got a Friend" was until I heard him do it.
