With her distinctive sensual sound, she was an important blue-eyed soul singer and at her peak was one of the most successful British female performers, with six top 20 singles on the United States Billboard Hot 100/Billboard Hot 100 and sixteen on the United Kingdom UK Singles Chart/Singles Chart from 1963 to 1989. She is a member of both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame/US Rock and Roll and UK Music Hall of Fame/UK Music Halls of Fame. International polls have named Springfield among the best female rock artists of all time. Her image, supported by a peroxide blonde bouffant hairstyle, evening gowns, and heavy make-up, made her an icon of the Swinging Sixties.
