Ronstadt didn't write. She said there were already plenty of great songs and songwriters, and she didn't want to take a chance on being one of the bad ones. Sinatra didn't write, and though he is often credited as a co-writer, Elvis wasn't a songwriter. Does that diminish them in some way? The artists she covered from Hank Williams and Patsy Cline to The Rolling Stones and Neil Young to Roy Orbison and Gilbert and Sullivan is pretty impressive. Sad that her voice is stilled.

There is no better female pop singer ever. (Well, maybe Ann Wilson…) But kids today, with their Taylor Swift, Miley, Rihanna… Linda didn't need dancers to distract from bad notes. But, I'm just an old fart, knowing that any edition of Ed Sullivan beats American Idol hands down. Music was just better back then.

It is amazingly difficult to pick my favorite Linda Ronstadt song. She does Patsy Cline songs better than Patty. I know, heresy. She is just that good.
