Since The Netherlands won from Spain last night i decided to record We Are The Champions by Queen, using a karaoke backingtrack as usual, i think i did ok apart from a few bits, my version was something between Freddie and Paul as far as phrasing goes.

The begining was fine, but I don't know  Confused  your highs are shaky and don't sound like before
maybe is just me but you sound very strained there.

I tried to keep my "shouting" to a minimum on the highs, so indeed they do sacrifice a bit in terms of pitch..
So it`s not just you, i totally understand what you mean man Smile

And why exactly do you think that it`s awful?
It`s not like i`m constantly off pitch or anything, and btw, if you`re gonna listen to Queen covers whils`t expecting something Freddie-Like "You`re gonna have a bad time"

the song is called We Are The Champions, and that was the most tasteless and unmanly singing I've heard.  Singing is meant to match a song and convey a thought/feeling.  this song is supposed to be triumphant and macho.  I heard none of that, your phrasing was ill-fitting and cringeworthy, and overall it sounded terrible.  this isn't 'we are the champions' this was 'i am the northern european shithead singing this song in a funny accent'.

being off-pitch isnt what makes a song bad.  being on-pitch is the least you're supposed to do when you sing a song.  once you do that, the rest is what counts.  and you fucked up everything else. (not that your odd changes to the melody weren't fucking terrible to listen to)
