I believe you meant C♯5. And please, change the A♭s to G♯s. Before Sippe gets to you  I love you

Damn, great thread Timmerbo. Just left Dino and we'll have the Rat Pack!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHSDEjZeU3Y here is Sammy impersonating Michael Jackson...maybe there is some notes..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zbyp4CxjtWc here a medley along Tom Jones...great singing of both..a great example is 1:07..but it is interesting to check the whole performance. Look at 3:22 how he begins to impersonate Sinatra hahaha hilarious.

The top modal note in 'Bad' is an F4.  The C#5 (6:55) and A4 in the OP is from the medley with Tom Jones.  He does a throaty scream that's even higher at 7:00 but I have no idea what the pitch is.

EDIT: that's an impression of Billy Eckstine rather than Sinatra when he breaks into 'My Way'.

Because that is the format. It keeps things streamlined and easy to recognize.

Having a systematic as opposed to arbitrary approach is always preferable.

There is a slight theoretical difference between A♭ And G♯, BUT 1) it's indeed something minor and 2) in this case, I'd definitely use G♯ as well to avoid an arbitrary system, like Rodney said.

Men! What are you talking about!. It's not about freedom of will or bondage or somewhat. Anyplace you go ,there are rules and an Order, a system or guidelines.
Otherwise any person would do whatever they want.
So put DO5 instead of C? or any person in this forum speak his language! hablemos español otros ruso o aleman..
Don't fight over stupid things..
it's is so difficult for you tu put G#4 instead of Ab4?  Smile

Non-modal A5 at 1:49? She hits a C#6 right afterwards and is hilariously uncomfortable even trying to sing rock music.

James Brown-type screams that I can't pitch at 2:37, 2:46, 3:43, and 4:20.
