Reading this list I realised you very clearly have a preference for female vocalists. Almost nothing on here has a male lead.
I recently spent a bit of time looking at my own preferences in this way. I'd never really considered it before but when I looked at a list of my 2,200 favourite songs approximately 150 of them had the main credit to a female soloist. I'm guessing there was about the same again which had a female lead vocal but were credited to a group.
I was a bit disappointed in myself! I find it very difficult to work out why I subconsciously prefer music by men. It is definitely subconscious though, I have absolutely never deliberately judged the quality of a track on the gender of the performer. I found myself wondering whether it is actually biased at all, or whether my preferences reflect the proportion of music released by women, or the proportion by women that makes the charts or radio playlists. I guess it's different by genre too.
