What about Sue Johnston & Amanda Burton? Can they be goddesses of lip-syncing?
Björk is The Main Deciduous Tree in Sweden.
I'd call them the Lipps Inc of Soap Music
I'll accept that.
Also while I'm here, I've just been talking to Su about this thread and she's eager (really enthusiastic) to find out where she will land in this topic.
Who are all those people?
It was from an 80s reality show called THE MARRIAGE, that's about all I know, I never watched it.
Then she's going to be...ehm….the Kelly Marie of Reality Pop
Hey wait a minute - what's this??
The Siren of Pop?
She's the Yelluhcoat of One Hit Wonders.
It was huge, and probably my first encounter with fly-on-the-wall TV before we became saturated with it. I was well invested in it.
Ah - nostalgia. Apparently they're still happily married, though I'm sure the tabloids have reported them as divorcing numerous times.
Re-reading my pop bible, Yeah Yeah Yeah: The Story of Modern Pop, Bing Crosby is referred to as the king of the crooners.
It also calls him king of the singers between the '20s and the '50s.
I thought he was the King of Christmas?
In the early fifties, Bob Merrill, who wrote things like '(If I Knew You Were Comin') I'd Have Baked a Cake' and '(How Much is) That Doggie in the Window?', was "the best-selling composer in the world" and "could stake a claim to be the king of pre-rock".
Found another one! "Louis Jordan was the king of jump blues."
Paul Anka: King of Teenybopper Pop
Leslie Gore: Queen of Girl Power Pop
Françoise Hardy: Queen of Yé-Yé
Julie Felix: Queen of Folk
Bill Haley was pop's own Wizard of Oz.
1. Queen of Rock Tina Turner
Janis Joplin was dubbed the first queen of rock 'n' roll, and her voice is singular. She was rough around the edges, vulnerable and charismatic, and she paved the way for countless women in rock. Mid-1960s San Francisco was a mecca for counterculture musicians.
King Of Rock-Elvis Presley
Elvis Presley was the King of Rock and Roll. It was a title that others gave him but it's hard to argue that it wasn't appropriate. He was the first true rock icon and his music had a massive impact on all who came afterwards.
Queen of Country- Dolly Parton
The original "Queen of Country Music" is Kitty Wells. Even Dolly Parton would say so if she really knows country music! As of today's country music it would be Carrie Underwood.
King Of Country-Kenny Rogers
George Strait. George Harvey Strait (born May 18, 1952) is an American country music singer, songwriter, actor, and music producer. He is known as the "King of Country" and is considered one of the most influential and popular recording artists of all time.
King Of Pop-Michael Jackson
Queen of Pop -Madonna
Queen of Soul -Aretha Franklin
Queen of Jazz -Ella Fitzgerald
Father Of Jazz -Louis Armstrong
Soul King -James Brown
Billy Joel: the Beethoven of Pop
Giorgio Moroder: the King of EDM
Grace Slick: the Queen of Psychedelic Rock
Sandie Shaw: Queen of Eurovision (don't tell her!)
"Wanda Jackson, the Queen of Rockabilly"
Slim Whitman: the King of Yodel Country (that's not a place btw, oh well, maybe on Dynasty)
