.......................................................

The lead singer for British Art Rock band Roxy Music. Fairly lower placed voice, but he really just stuck to the mid fourth octave and only really touched upon the upper fourth with soft falsetto, almost completely staying away from the lower third and upper second octaves. Ferry has an interesting voice; he can either sounds very pleasant, or his vibrato can make him sound pretty annoying. I like his voice for the most part.

You missed out on some high falsetto notes in the songs mentioned above, such as B4s and D5s in "Mother of Pearl" and C#5s in "Same old Scene".

Are they in the backing vocals or are they from lead parts?

Mother of pearl is backing (the ending), the other is lead.

He's got a lot more high and low notes out there, especially in Roxy Music's earlier albums.

Yeah, I only have their debut, Stranded, and their Greatest Hits on my computer right now, so I just started with those. Plus, there's only so much of Ferry's voice and Roxy Music you can take in a day. Confused 
Any help is appreciated though, cheers.

As for falsetto, I couldn't care less, really.

Do try to verify some of those. I basically kept this word document journal thing of notes I observed, may not be 100% accurate.

My bad, the F5 was "She sells" from Siren not "Both Ends Burning"
