- Bizarro Episode: Averted. In 1967, Frank Zappa recorded an advertising jingle for the Remington Electric Razor featuring Ronstadt's singing. However, the company didn't like it and it was never used.
- Signature Song: "You're No Good"
- Tearjerker: "Long Long Time":"And life's full of flaws
Who knows the cause?
Living in the memory of a love that never was"
- Vindicated by History: Ronstadt's modern reception as a legacy artist - including being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - is much better than the mixed reception she received in the 1970s.
- Win Back the Crowd: With her smash 1989 album Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind.
- The Woobie: Has become this to her fanbase in light of her deteriorating health. Especially after she was unable to attend her Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inauguration ceremony.
YMMV / Linda Ronstadt
