Went over to my parents earlier and my dad was listening to this song Blue Bayou. Holy cow she has a nice voice!

Just thought I'd like to share. :p What other old people used to have nice voices?

First off, Linda was not old when she recorded that song. So whats this thread gonna be about? Good female singers? Old songs sung by females?
Old songs sung by old females? Females that started singing young, and are still singing? New songs sung by old females?
Ya'll gotta narrow it down a might son. As an old geezer myself, I happen to like a mature woman who can sing, How bout an old song sung by an old, AND young female?

Linda Rondstat and old people in the same sentence makes me feel old.

She was a hottie, Penthouse offered her $1M to pose. She turned it down.
