    I already knew that Lane Ballou was going to be my #1. She's performed several songs and I liked them so much that I've tried to find them on the internet.
    Unfortunately they were exclusively written for the series, and therefore not available on any format.

    She did a really good version of Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue in the pilot episode of the series which almost made my top 5 but I wanted to spread the love amongst more of the soaps. I've always liked the duet she did with her father, although he wasn't a great singer, the performance of them both together was very charming.

    1. Ciji sings "If Love Must Go" on Knots Landing.
    2. Afton sings "It Takes 2 to Fly" on Dallas.
    3. Afton sings "The Eyes of Winter" on Dallas.
    4. Ginger sings "It's You, You're the one" on Knots Landing.
    5. Alexis sings on Dynasty.
    I have forgotten the name of the song but it was something about the boys over there. I've included it simply because of the stage performance. Joan Collins made it work for her.

    It was The Boys In The Back Room, Karin. A fun interpretation of a Dietrich classic.

    1. FLAMINGO ROAD (S2 E6) - Lane Ballou, when she's recording an untitled song in the studio.

    Starts at 31:30
    Apparently I'm not the only one who likes it because there's a blog page dedicated to this Unknown Song.
    http://hillplace.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-cristina-raines-song.html

    2. FLAMINGO ROAD (S2 E5) - Another unknown gem by Lane Ballou, performed in Lute-Mae's saloon.

    Starts at 6:15 (or is "Trip, Stumble And Fall In Love With You" an official song?)

    3. KNOTS LANDING (S4 E12) - Lilimae and CiJi performing "Will The Circle Be Unbroken"

    4. FLAMINGO ROAD - Lane Ballou (who else?) peforms Sinatra's "Imagination" for the handsome Fielding Carlyle.

    So cute and so romantic.

    5. KNOTS LANDING (S3 E12) - Ginger's first recording. Not the best singer but I really like this song.

    Honourable mention:
    Lane Ballou's version of "Never Gave Up On Me":D

    1. Ciji sings If Love Must Go at Daniel
    Knots Landing

    The vocal. The individual dramas playing out among the audience. The alien dress.



    2. Lilimae and Ciji sing Will The Circle Be Unbroken at the Block Party
    Knots Landing

    The heart. The chemistry. The warmth.



    3. Ginger sings It’s You, You’re The One at Ciji’s album launch
    Knots Landing

    The grim reveal at the end.



    4. Ciji sings Open Arms at Isadora’s
    Knots Landing
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBRZk4txcSs
    The reactions of the watching leads is great fun. Gary and Kenny turn to jelly while Ginger and Abby exchange more cynical looks.



    5. Sue Ellen sings People at gunpoint
    Dallas
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EucUFXIZuiA
    A(n intentionally) poor singing performance, but it's a nice character moment. I love how exposed and vulnerable she is; how uncomfortable the assembled audience is and how apropos the lyrics are to her character at that point in time - particularly the look she throws at JR when singing "with one person".

    1. Knots Landing's Ginger sings "It's You, You're the One" at Daniel. Kenny finally saw the talent that had been right under his nose the whole time.

    2. KL's Karen and Diana sing "Put On A Happy Face" at that benefit, despite Diana's apprehension:
    D: "This act is boring."
    K: "I have you know this act brought the house down."
    D: "Oh, yeah, during the Depression."

    3. Lilimae and Ciji's duet at the Block Party, "Will the Circle Be Unbroken".

    4. Cathy sings "I Can Dream About You" in episode 104. I think she performed it at Isadora's.

    5. Ciji sings "If Love Must Go" in the Starfleet Uniform Dress.

    Honorable mention to what could have been:
    In KL's episode 40, Gary and Olivia did a magic act for a "Father/Daughter Event" at her school (off-camera). When asked about it, Olivia replied that "We wanted to do Donny and Marie, but Gary can't sing."

    4. Silver Threads and a golden Needles Lucy Dallas
    5. Let Me Down Gently Afton Dallas

    Some of the other entries look very popular but I’ve not seen them

    I had forgotten one of my favourite performances but I won't confuse matters by changing my vote. However, had I been selecting my Top 5 today, I would have included Lilimae singing her song about The Miner Called Jake From The Pine Country at the party that Valene held for all her neighbours in season 3. The expressions on everyone's face is a picture, especially Gary's, and in a confusing piece of casting, the original actor who played Gary Ewing was in that scene with the actor who replaced him in the role.

    1) 'Steal Me Away' - Afton - DALLAS
    2) 'The Eyes of Winter' - Afton - DALLAS
    3) 'If Love Must Go' - Ciji - KNOTS LANDING
    4) 'Angel From Above' - Apollonia - FALCON CREST
    5) Dominique sings - DYNASTY (I don't know the title of the song. Here it is:)




    The Channings/Cumsons complete with Peter Stavros are having breakfast. Li-Ying is on her way back to China, having predicted a major earthquake, (a scene from season 5, 1985 - '86):

    Emma: "There is something so heavy in the air this morning. So heavy. So still. Not even the birds are singing."

    The door bell chimes. Chao-Li welcomes Julia, from the convent.

    Angela: "Well there is really not much to sing about."

    I think the song is called I Can't Get Started, written by Ira Gershwin and recorded by Ella Fitzgerald amongst others.

    I think it's simply "Pine Country", though an argument could be made it's "simply awful".

    I may have been somewhat hasty in my original post naming Lilimae as the only worthy competitor and have decided to get rid of her altogether @Willie Oleson

    1. Lane Ballou, when she's recording an untitled song in the studio. (Thanks Willie, this is great!)
    2. 'Will the Circle Be Unbroken' - Lilimae and Ciji
    3. 'The Eyes Of Winter' - Afton
    4. 'Here's That Rainy Day' - Dominique

    5. 'Look Into The Fire In My Eyes' - Apollonia

    Well, Ciji doesn't have the monopoly on cheesy pop in space age outfits, you know.

    Btw, I know everyone will be wondering, 'where can I hear a better quality version of this?' so here you go. You're welcome.
