.......................................................
*Blue marks clear falsetto notes.
*Underline marks notes in backing vocals or otherwise muffled/obscured in the song mix.
*Italics mark non-melodic notes.


This is still very much a work in progress.


Just some notes I had written down:



  • C3-D3 section was added after notewatching quite a few songs so there may be many notes missing.
  • C3-D3 and G4-G♯4 may be deleted if enough notes are added.
  • There are D6s in "Eat It" but I don't know if it's him or not.

There are a couple other obscure notes, but they don't seem important.

Any suggestions and help will be appreciated!

1:20 There are some lows that may or may not be him as well. Anyway, D6s at 3:05.

It's him because the band members and personnel are not credited for backing vocals or vocals in general...

There are 4 women credited as backing vocalists on that album...

You can count those lows though.

Didn't Spy Hard have a D5 or an E5 in it? Can't check at the moment, but it's towards the end of the song, IIRC.

Yes, D5.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7KMMxAQp8I 2:23 He sustains it for twenty seconds, there's also some nice G4s.
He has B4s, D5s and semi-sung F♯2s and E♭5 in "Pretty Fly For a Rabbi", IIRC.

Okay, I definitely heard the B4s. The E♭5s are on "Oy vey". I may or may not have heard the D5s. And the F♯2s, I'm assuming, are on "And all the goyim say I'm pretty fly for a rabbi". What's the diagnosis then? Everything sung? D5s or no? Find out next time on TRP's "Weird Al" Yankovic 2.0.

Falsetto (presumably) C5 in the chorus of Albuquerque.

At 1:34 I'm hearing a C♯5. Also, just within the first minute I thought I heard some significant (maybe non-melodic) stuff that I most likely won't be able to pitch. Anyway, is that the note you were talking about?

That's the one!  Smile  Must've pitched it wrong.

There are C5s in the backing vocals at 4:20 and elsewhere though. I'll add both. They're both kind of in the background, so it's hard to make out whether it is falsetto or not, so I'm gonna just leave them as black, but I think both will be marked as "backing/obscured".

Haha dude, I knew someone was gonna post this. I saw a bit of it last night and instantly thought, "gotta notewatch that". The "B1" part is very soft and almost whispery, so it's a little hard to hear, and I don't think it's significant, but I got plenty of other stuff.

At 1:38 it sounds like an A5 to me (non-melodic of course) and at 2:02 is that a C6? Am I hearing this correctly?

Anybody else got an opinion on it? Do you see it as significant Karl? I would say so. Also, anything for the B4/C5 posted before that from the Emmys?
