So, I had to try this one. I am not sure why. I know it's terribad, but I think after a few weeks I'll be at least able to sing it in some kind of comfort zone. It seems my threshold for flipping into a light airy falsetto is at least higher now than it was a few months ago. This song really kicks my but.

yes Snejk, that is me doing all the vocals on my video. Lead and harmonies. Thank you very much for your compliment. As Keith pointed out, this song does take alot out of you. I recorded it over a period of a couple of days. And yes, those high notes at the end are indeed very much a challenge...

Thats another thing I did wrong. I just did one take all the way through.. Didn't take any time to make it sound good.. Kinda wanted this copy for a referance so in 2 weeks or so when I try it again I can compare the two. Plus, I sang it right after I sang the Avantasia song, so I was already a little tired. And yes, Mr. Stone has one heck of a resonator!

And in the interest of singing, check this out. This is from a Finnish show called Kuorosota. It is a show where a celebtrity singer takes a group of people and works with them for a while before they perform. I think the new show we have, 'The Voice' is based on it loosely. Anyway, whereas most of the time its just the choir singing the song, Timo Kotipelto actually joins them to sing it. Talk about bringing in a ringer. So here is the original singer with a choir:

I wouldn't worry to much about the falsetto flips. Those will go away. The good thing is that your pitch placement was good. That matters more, at least to me, than whether the note was falsetto. And yes, I have noticed that you don't flip into falsetto until much higher. So, I totally agree that you are wise to record this in one take and keep it as a reference of progress. Then, sometime later, you will re-record this and see where things have changed.

And yes, it is a challenging song. Major requirements in articulation in higher pitches. Controlling the release of air (which is what breath support is really all about,) and maintaining the use of resonators. It is an athletic endeavor.

And, i only submit songs here that are one take, unless otherwise stated. Usually, the only time I re sing something is if I mess up the words, which isn't often because I do not know the words to these songs I sing... I memorize the melody and read the words from darklyrics.com - If I doctor up everything I post, then I will not really get any useful criticism - which is really why I post songs.
