Speaking of British ladies with some soul, check out Amy Winehouse back before she wrecked herself. Hard to believe this was her only about six years ago. The song is "Stronger Than Me" off of her Frank album.
We'll round it out with a little Beth Ditto and Gossip. I don't know when they dropped the "The" from the band's name, but there it is. This one is "Heavy Cross" off of their album Music for Men. I know Ms. Ditto isn't for everyone, but damn if I don't love her attitude. She rocks!
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Seriously, what the hell happened to Amy Winehouse?
