C5 ("Nightman" live, "Pageant Song")
B4 ("Tiny Boy, Baby Boy, Little Boy" live, "Troll Toll")

*Purple marks notes sung in harmony or in unison with other characters.
*Blue marks soft falsetto notes.
*Italics mark non-melodic notes.


I've been notewatching the characters from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia lately, and turns out almost all of the main gang have around three octave ranges. I'll be making threads for Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney too while I'm at it, but Glenn is easily the best singer of the five of them. Really nice tone and great belting technique in the fourth octave, as well as some pretty impressive falsetto highs with killer vibrato. I'll update the thread with more notes as I find them, and if anyone knows of anything missing, be sure to let me know. I'm actually not 100% sure that some of the lows are him, actually, since they're sung in harmonies and it's a bit hard to tell the different voices apart, but they're definitely either Glenn or Rob.

Some A4s at 34:43. He also speaks/yells entire phrases on B4s and C5s and seems to blow his voice out during the 'Nightman' song. Great performance.

Mac sings some D5s at 35:27.

Wow, just watched the whole thing and there's some great notes in there. For one, the D5s by Mac were definitely a fantastic find; probably the strongest highs I've heard by him to date. Here's what I picked up on in the rest of the songs:
-B4s in by Charlie in the intro song
-C♯3-G♯4 by Dennis in "I've Got a Troll in My Hole", as well as a number of F♯4s by Frank
-F5s by Dee in "Tiny Boy, Little Boy, Baby Boy", and some parlando B4s by Dennis
-More F♯4s by Frank in "Troll Toll", but Dennis and Mac both eschew the B4s in their lines and opt for G♯4s instead
-No A2s by Mac in "It's Nature, Shit Happens", but still a few C3s and a bunch of G♯4s/A4s
-A bunch of A4s/B♭4s by Dennis and D5s by Mac in "Nightman" like you said, but also some D3s and a G♯5 by Dennis!
-Finally, "Marry Me" has a bunch of additional belted E♭5s by Charlie that aren't in the original, then a vocal solo at the end with a sung B♭5 and a bunch of sustained G5s!

So that puts both Mac and Charlie at an even three octaves, with Dennis off the mark by just a semitone. Dee also has a pretty good voice, and so far I've heard C3-F5 by her, but I'm gonna hold off on making a thread until I have more notes.

lol. Had no idea this thread existed. If I find anything i'll add it in.

As much as I adore Charlie's voice. This guy is the most natural and lyrical of the 3. Great voice.

Agreed. I'd love to hear what he'd sound like singing with a legitimate rock band.

You couldn't refuse giving Dennis a thread. What were you going to do? Say no?



Short clip of him singing along to Rick Astley.  Laughing

^^ I already checked that, to my ears there was nothing significant in the clip though. I think the lowest he gets is an F3/G3.

The G♯4 in ''It's So Hard To Say Goodbye'' warrant a mention too.

Also, I see no reason why a G4 section shouldn't be included. He gets a G4 in ''Motownphilly''

Is the video above helpful or noteworthy at all?

There's also usually a fantastically sustained C5 in most ''Dayman'' performances

Hey, you mention in a post above the Dee has a C3, where's it from? Just curious. Also, if Mac gets a thread, I don't see why she shouldn't.

Nice! What performance should I list this as in the OP?

It's from season 5, episode 2 - The Gang Hits the Road when she's drunkenly singing along to "Runaway Train" by Soul Asylum. Decent two and a half octave range, but I don't have that many notes to list for her for the time being, so I've been holding off on making a thread for now.

Maybe just ''Dayman'' (live Paley Fest 2009)?

1.20 for example: oh the second/third ''ah'' he ends on a really nicely sustained C5

Thank you!  Thumb up Also, fair enough! She will most likely have notes in future episodes. I might actually rewatch all nine seasons, if I find anything i'll let you know.
