first 5 seconds of the song. It's a yelped note (maybe closer to A5?). To be honest, i'm reluctant to keep the notes above the listed F#5. Those notes are all of the same quality. In the police records, he did yelped like that quite a lot.
I haven't updated this in a while... I'll update everything eventually (I have exams at school right now!)

We've been suggesting getting rid of them for a while now, if you haven't noticed. Whistle

On the song Impossible, he's got some really pleasent G4's & A4's, as well as some A2's-D3's.

Tons of B4s throughout; E♭5s at 1:24 and 2:22.


C5s left and right in this one, with a D5 at 1:03 and an E5 at 2:06.

So presumably his F6 at the end of "Be My Girl/Sally" has been disqualified?

I'm working on this version of Roxanne for homework at the moment...



Is that really a C5 on "put away your make UUUUP"? It's like he's singing it in his chest voice, the git!
