Valentines Day is coming up, and anybody that knows anything will tell you the fastest way to a girl’s heart is a little Falsetto, obviously. So here are 10 of the best Falsetto voices. Instead of buying an expensive gift or flowers, may I suggest an all high-singing mixtape?
Broken Bells just released After the Disco and it’s full of James Mercer singing sweet, sweet falsetto tones. He said he wasn’t always comfortable singing so high but Brian Burton made him more adventurous and taught him to embrace it.
Toronto locals The Darcys belong here because things get pretty high on Warring.
Jeff Buckley had an insane range. He was a tenor and his actual range was 4 octaves.
I count about 1000 girls Justin Vernon just made melt with his falsetto and very strangely tuned guitar.
Frankie Valli made falsetto seem masculine in the 50’s. He was the person that made it big in popular music during that era.
Beck is coming out with a new record for the first time since 2008 on February 25th. This is some passionate love making music from him with an excessive amount of wah pedal and falsetto.
Prince is another person that made falsetto popular during his time. He always had a very eccentric image and style making this type of singing a feather in the hat of his unique style.
Thom Yorke has been known to hit some pretty tall tones.
TV on the Radio have worked with some of the biggest names in music from Bowie to Trent Reznor. Tunde Adebimpe has never been afraid to get high.
Falsetto from Peter Silberman of The Antlers is a little more elusive, but it’s lovely when it happens.
And a very honourable mention goes to The Nylons. Fun facts about The Nylons: you can’t look cool while being in The Nylons.
