Joe Cocker

Post  bradphone on Wed Aug 14, 2013 9:48 pm


Voice Type: Baritone
Vocal Range: B♭2-A5

Significant High Notes:
A5 ("Summer In The City")
G♯5 ("You Are So Beautiful")
E5 ("With A Little Help From My Friends", "Summer In The City")
E♭5 ("Woman To Woman")
D5 ("One")
C♯5 ("Woman To Woman")
B4 ("Woman To Woman")
G♯4("You Are So Beautiful", "You Are So Beautiful", "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word", "Have A Little Faith In Me", "Woman To Woman")
G4 ("Forever Changed", "My Father's Son", "With A Little Help From My Friends", "You Can Leave Your Hat On", "Unchain My Heart", "Summer In The City", "One")
F♯4 ("With A Little Help From My Friends")


Significant Low Notes:
B♭2 ("Forever Changed")
C3 ("Forever Changed", "My Father's Son")
D3 ("My Father's Son", "With a Little Help From My Friends")

.......................................................
*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks extremely bad, unimpressive or unintentional notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes..


Good singer, he has a very raspy voice, and i always think that when he sings those high notes it really must hurt on his throat for some reason.
I also like that he really tries to conduct every single note that`s being played by the band when he performs live.

Also, where the fuck is the red D3 in "With a Little Help From My Friends"?
And why so many shades of blue?

Really great song! Solid C3s, D3s, Eb3s in the verses. G4s in the chorus. Smile
You can probably get rid of the red D3 now dude. Razz

I keep forgetting you can still do that. That works too.

also, that picture doesn't seem like the best choice. Perhaps something taken when he was in his prime..?

The whole thread needs to be updated. New notes, baritone, a new pic, the layout, etc.

I posted real non-red low notes but that got ignored cause he used the wrong shade of blue? Is formatting seriously more important than content guys? Razz

Well that's a first. Razz
The vocal range says C3-G#4 even though he has an E5. Also sounds more like a middle bari to me.

We can list him simply as a 'baritone' if you want, it doesn't really matter.

But yeah, bring on more lows and shit, whether you happen to find some. His speaking voice is deep and husky, wouldn't be surprised to find out some cool content.

So long as we agree that he's some kind of bari yeah. Smile



C3s in the verses here and a few Bb2s later on (0:46, 1:32, 3:05, 3:20), a few G4s too (best one is probably 2:59).
Also the notes in 'Woman to Woman' are G#4s, B4s, C#5s, and Eb5s. Smile

Can someone tell me where the bad D3 is in "With a Little Help From My Friends"?

I'm wondering if he's referring to the part at 2:20 when Cocker sings "I need someone to looove", and he dips down on the last word. If that's what he means, I wouldn't call that bad or unintentional at all.

Once again, the word "bad" is used badly.

I'm really surprised about his high notes...This show us what strange is the range " thing".... when you compare other high baritone-singers like Billy Joel or Lennon or Elvis or Springsteen. Joe sounds truly strained and struggle a lot from F4.... but can hit an E5... that's weird Worried

It's probably a very strained scream.
