Last week, we asked Rolling Stone readers to name their favorite Bruce Springsteen songs – and we compiled the votes into a top 10 list.

This week we crunched the numbers to determine the current Queen of Pop. Now it's your turn to decide: Who is the best Pop Queen of all time? Unlike our list, which was based on data from the past two years, you can feel free to vote for any female solo artist from any era you like.

You can vote here in the comments, on facebook.com/rollingstone or on Twitter with the #weekendrock hashtag.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
