I'll spare you the suspense. Agnetha wins.  No contest.

There's only three rules to this list: 

(1) The singers must have experienced a degree of popularity in the 1960s - 80s.  Thus, no local obscure singers, and no Fergie.

(2) Their popularity is derived primarily from music. Thus, no Cheryl Ladd or Goldie Hawn, even though they put out albums.

(3) Please do not overly fixate on the order; focus on glaring omissions and unworthy inclusions.** 

With that said, here's #2 - #100

* I'm a sucker for a miniskirt
** In other words, it's okay to ask me if I'm on crack for putting Belinda Carlisle on the list... but don't scream that she shouldn't be at 62.  Remember when Rolling Stone ranked the greatest songs of all time and included several Backstreet Boys and In-Sync "classics"? Who cares what position they ranked, they shouldn't have been on the goddamn list. Get my drift?
