The 80’s was an essential ten years for woman artists. Not only for direct singers, but also for solo artists and all women bands. Some of the icons of pop music like Madonna and Janet Jackson acquired their start in the 80’s. These groundbreaking woman artists are at minimum partly to blame for the “lady power” movement that gave us the Spice Ladies, Pussycat dolls, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and more just lately, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Woman Gaga.
Once the thought of successful female pop and rock artists that appealed to the “bubblegum” set of teenager girls had taken hold, there was no turning back. What experienced been screaming hysteria for the Beatles, Stones, and other all male bands in the 60’s and 70’s, turned emulation and hero worship of woman artists and bands. There had been also a lot much more merchandising opportunities for report companies, as young ladies have been very likely to alter their “boy” bands for newer types, but proved fiercely faithful to the woman equal.
Aside from Madge and Janet, there was (in no get) Siouxsie Sioux, Martha Davis, Annie Lennox, Sinead O’Connor, Gloria Estefan, Pat Benatar, Sade, Tina Turner, Nena, Bonnie Tyler, Kim Wilde, Stevie Nicks, Kim Karnes, MC Lyte, Donna Summer season, Bette Midler, Juice Newton, Lita Ford, Joan Jett, Madonna, Belinda Carlisle, Taylor Dayne, Olivia Newton-John, Sheena Easton, Alison Moyet, Paula Abdul, Laura Branigan, Deborah Harry, Whitney Houston, Tiffany Debbie Gibson, Chaka Khan, Patti LaBelle, Dolly Parton, Barbara Streisand, Kate Bush, Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight and Cyndi Lauper. These women all had Leading 10 hits in the 80s AND have been productive since then as artists. Lots of them had been having a operate-up at the marketplace since the 60’s, but only broke clear in the 80’s. It was a ten years when female rock artists came into their possess in what had been really a lot a boys club.
Apart from the solo artists, there were also the all female bands Waitresses, Expose, The Go-Go’s, Coronary heart, Bangles and Bananarama to make the males drool.
The record is lengthy and I question it is total.
With Bangtans Boys of a huge listing, how would you pick the very best 80’s feminine artists? An apparent one is Madonna who with legendary music like “Like a Virgin” and “Substance Female” is the final instance of the 80’s lady. In simple fact, she has dominated the songs scene so effectively the previous thirty many years it is hard to don’t forget that in the 80’s she was just a single of group of woman artists trying to make their mark in heritage.
What about Whitney Houston with her 7 consecutive number one hits in the 80s, or Cyndi Lauper, who’s debut album “She’s So Strange” was the first album in history to have four Prime 5 singles by a female artist? Allows also not fail to remember Bananarama who, till the Spice Women, had offered more data than any all female band in music heritage and still hold the Guinness World Report for the most chart entries by a lady band.
