Recommend me some songs (rock or pop) with female vocalists that send a shiver down your spine.

Currently I'm very much digging rock bands with female vocalists. Especially those with songs that, for lack of a better description, send a shiver down my spine with some of the music+voice combinations. Notable examples that are getting an absurd amount of play on my iPhone:
Frayed - The Naked and Famous [especially at the end of the song]
Girl With One Eye and Heavy In My Arms - Florence + The Machine
Waking Up and Never Here - Elastica
anything with Karen Carpenter, but especially Superstar
Into The White/Gigantic/any of The Pixies' songs that Kim Deal sings.
(note: Call Me Maybe & Kimbra get play as well, but mostly just for the fun pop that it is.)
So, MeFi, please fill my playlists with amazing female vocalists. Open to pretty much anything provided it's catchy. Doesn't have to be recent or any super-specific genre, but I lean toward guitar & drum based stuff.
