R.I.P you comedy legend! Felt like I should do this thread for Robin since he actually had quite a good singing voice in addition to his legendary acting and comedy careers.

This guy... His performances as the Genie in Aladdin and Batty in Fern Gully made me want to become an actor when I was a little kid. I love this man so much. Crying

Anyway, not to go back to TRP 1-like notewatching, but he does some silly voices in his stand-up performances where he gets some lows... Worried

Well I'm not against counting really deliberate high or low speaking outside the context of music. Especially for someone who's main career wasn't in singing.

I remember his voice being really dark in the movie Insomnia with Al Pacino. A very grim and evil character too.

Are you sure he's a "Genie Baritone" and not a Low Tenor ?

Chesty hollered G4 at 1:24 and a falsetto G4 at 2:48 as well as a brief Bb4 at 1:38.

I'm pretty sure that in Friend Like Me, Robin goes down to a spoken C♯2 when saying "whilst I illuminate the possibilities." Specifically when he says "illuminate".

I'm up for counting it really but I need to double check how low it actually gets. Some of the uploads of the song on youtube are slightly pitch shifted.

Ah, okay. The video that I watched of this song was up a semitone from the notes you listed. If the spoken note I mentioned follows along with the notes you already have listed, then he would actually be going down to a C2. I suppose the only way to really know, though, is to go back and watch the original movie for this.

Evidently, as the Bb4 at 1:38 'royal dues', going up on 'dues' isn't included.

There are several G4s in his appearance on WLIIA, I guess the song would be called "Gospel Jeremy"?
