495. Petula Clark
Petula Clark was not just the biggest female solo star in England, she may have been one of the biggest female stars in the world. Clark’s upbeat Pop seemed to translate to every country and once they heard her music they embraced it as their own. She was certainly accessible, and maybe too much so as she didn’t really fit into the rebellious sounds around her. Maybe it was that fact and that her music is not played often today in relation to her past albums sold that have made a lot of people (including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) so easily forget Petula Clark.
