This is the live performance of Ruby Tuesday with those seventh octave notes. I struggled to note watch them but I think I hear the F#7. Plenty of them from around 8:03:



Another clip with plenty of live performances, notably a sort of demonstration of Loving You chorus for TV:



By the by, this is the first time I am making this kind of thread, so please let me know w.r.t any formatting issues. And please do check out the black C#6 from Adventures in Paradise. I am not too sure if she has actually transitioned back to head voice or it's her whistle tone that sounds unusually dark.

That First clip was BLOODY AWFUL around 08:00 It sounded like someone was playing a theremin with no musical knowledge whatsoever...

I suggest you look at some other threads to ensure that you have yours managed in the same way. I think this is a good thread but it's lacking a lot as far as the organization department goes.

Mainly just needs proper capitalization and sharp/flat symbols as far as I can see.

Pardon, I have indicated flat and sharp along with the octave, as applicable. So does this mean there are some incorrect notes?

I meant that you need to add proper flat and sharp symbols, i.e. ♯ and ♭ instead of # and b. The octaves are correct, yes, but you need to fix the capitalization in the song titles so that certain words aren't randomly uppercased and others lowercased.

Done. Put up a pic as well. Let me know if you need more notes, links, timestamps, etc etc.

EDIT: By the way, any differing opinions on voice type? Yeah!

I recently started listening her music and started to like her voice more and more. She is perfect example of light lyric soprano with coloratura ability in pop music.

You can't forget the G6 in Loving you.

Really cool modal G5 in 'Love Hurts' towards the end.

Notewatching this for the move, some lows at the beginning (0:00-0:23) in the harmonies. I think it goes down to E3 but I could be wrong. Second opinion on this please?
