Linda Ronstadt won 10 Grammy Awards out of her 26 nominations. She undoubtedly broke limits within musical genres and had helped to push female to enter a male-dominated industry during the entire music industry of the ’70s.
“You’re No Good,” is one of Ronstadt’s iconic songs which topped the Billboard Hot 100 on Feb. 15, 1975. The finest work of hers which she showcased during her performance in 1976.
“I like to sing ballads,” she said in the 2019 documentary Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice, “but we needed uptempo songs for the record and, as an afterthought, I had this song that we’d used to close the show.”
