1. 1. Amy Winehouse (1983-2011)
Seriously, were it not for the drugs, this woman would have conquered the world. Give her a second life!
PS- Did you know she played guitar too? Yeah, she forgot more skills than most of us will ever have.
2. 2. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (1971-2002)
Just point me to the person that wouldn’t want to see TLC, now that we’re all adults. Oh, they don’t exist? Thought so.
3. 3. Etta James (1938-2012)
Perhaps the baddest bitch around back in the day. Beyonce did her absolutely no justice in the Chess Records movie.
4. 4. Wendy O Williams (1949-1998)
Speaking of the baddest bitch around, Wendy O Williams made a habit of, among other things: performing pretty much naked, chainsawing guitars on stage, blowing the stage up, riding atop a freaking bus… need I continue?
5. 5. Judy Garland (1922-1969)
Wizard of Oz remake, broadway reprise, mother-daughter duet with Liza Minnelli, there are about one million ways to accomplish this.
6. 6. Janis Joplin
C’mon Bonnaroo, take a stand and show Cochella whats up.
7. 7. Dusty Springfield (1939-1999)
Can you say live performance with Cypress Hill!? (They sampled this song for their opus, “Hits From the Bong”)
8. 8. Aaliyah (1979-2001)
Everyone would tune in to see this songstress dust herself off and Try Again.
9. 9. Nina Simone (1933-2003)
She could perform on stage with all of the current artists who shes influenced. Well, that would be just about every single blues, folk, pop, R&B, gospel and soul singer ever since the 50’s. Should be well worth the ticket price.
10. 10. Whitney Houston (1963-2012)
All right, the phrase “too soon” is on your mind. Well get it off, we miss this lady and we want her back, NOW.
I mean, SERIOUSLY.
12. [BONUS] Lauryn Hill c.1996 (b. 1975)
Say what you want about Ms. Hill being “alive” and “well”(?)- the Lauryn Hill of the 90’s is gone forever, by her own decree. I would give my innocence (again) to see Fugees back when they really were Fugees.

I know, right? And there’s more where that came from.
Totally! And there’s plenty more to love!
Broken hearted? Maybe you’ll like something over here instead?
