Recommend songs that showcase the head voice, or falsetto?

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

I've been practicing my head voice a lot lately! or it might be my falsetto, I don't know. But I've been training it to be strong, and not be airy, and I want to put it to use more. I sometimes try to sing opera songs, but I don't really sing it fully, because I'm a little embarrassed XD, and sometimes it's just too high that I can't sing it without using a closed vowel or something.

I'm looking for English songs, but if it's not in English I could still try it.

Using the AH and OH vowel I can go up to D#6, but C#6 is more comfortable. EH - C#6, OO - E6/F6, EE - E6. This is my usual range too.

 

 

These are just some of my favorite videos that showcase the head voice or falsetto.

7:50 - 7:55 Head voice up to C#6

Btw her name is So Hyang and she is awesome :))) Her belts are my favorite. I like to imagine that I'm singing like her.......

And I just like singing along the head voice or falsetto parts in this song, and it made me realize how cool falsetto or head voice can be. Which gave me the idea to start this thread. The chorus is just basically sung in falsetto or head voice. The first chorus starts at 0:49.

As you can see, they're both in languages that I don't speak XD. I know Ariana Grande does some high falsettos, but they're too hard for me.

Listen for the female backing vocal in the one above that often would be thought of as another instrument!

Here's a good one for the younger folks who may have overlooked this master of the seemless transition!  The tonal beauty in the head voice and his moving in and out of falsetto is one of the best of my generation. Please watch to the end.  Notice the stability of the larynx and the quality of the tone.

pretty sure the Vitas stuff is up in whistle register

in any case here are some more examples. IMO Freddi Curci has the best example here because he is still actually singing words up at that c6 range and not just vowels sounds

 

 interesting whistle voice vid by Adam Lopez...interesting because he says he cant do whistle voice if there is a full moon lol

 

Niccola Sedda, crazy range. In the youtube comments he says he used only "full voice" in this song and only did 2 takes lol.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Fr43JyokhY

Jon, you're such a high note junkie, lol....

I think the skill is not just singing falsetto high notes, but learning to weave in and out of it on high and low falsetto note production....The skill of being able to integrate the notes and tonally meld them in with your full voice.

Another master......

You might as well have put up a GSoul bat signal with  that one...

Same guy I posted up there. Here, he's singing an Earth, Wind and Fire tribute with a couple of other guys. He sings falsetto this whole time here, and the actual song is actually pretty much all falsetto. The song is called "Reasons". I put Earth, Wind and Fire performing it live, the 4th video below.

 

 

The guy on the right is also known for his falsetto.

 

 

 

Reasons by Earth, Wind and Fire. I think Philip Bailey may even be using the whistle register here around the 2 minute spot.

 

 

This guy is known for his falsetto too.

 

 

One of Brian Mcknight's songs that he does in falsetto, and he does some beautiful riffs up there.

not really (although thats what im working on myself)

 

When I read the thread title I was going to post up Brian Wilson, but then when I listened to the examples he posted it seems he wanted to hear the really high, near whistle stuff

 

To me, these are the masters:

 

 

and of course

Also the song "Have you ever been to Electric Ladyland" by Hendrix......they say he was copying another band....who was it? Some band back then that used crazy falsetto vocals.    Believe it or not I cant even find the original song online now, wow.

El Debarge's brother

 

 

Him performing with his group.

 

 

 

I wasn't going to post one from this guy, because his falsetto is more airy, like a whisper, but it's iconic. This song shows how he glides in and out of falsetto and full voice with ease.

 

 

 

Something a little different now. A cool alternative song.

Yo VideoHere is left and right posting my favorite singers talking about "the younger folks might not appreciate it."  LOL 

Alright guys, nobody has gone here yet so I'm gonna be the one to do it.  I will now formally introduce, the ORIGINAL, master of the whiny, twangy, piercing high falsetto.  FRANKIE VALLIE LET'S GO:
