Freddie Mercury. Freddie was a natural countertenor who chose to sing with a tenor timbre.

Ian Gillan should also be an option, although I lean towards Freddie Mercury as well since his exceptional control of falsetto got to really shine in Queen's live impromptus.

Where's Prince?
A few others that would've made this a better poll: Peter Gabriel, Phillip Bailey, Barry Gibb, Jeff Buckley, FRANKIE VALLI, Ian Gillan, Elton John, Axl Rose, Leo Sayer, and Michael Bolton.

Vitas for me. Of the ones actually named in the poll I'd go for Klaus Nomi. Freddie Mercury also deserves to be on the list, and Roger Taylor's falsetto is pretty awesome, as is Morten Harket's: Morten might not use his falsetto as extensively or as high as some of the others but it sounds great.

high shrieks and similar is usually pretty easy to get "cool" and good. This is so hard to make this sound good, the emotion is cary

I'm not totally sure if people got it but I wasn't being serious when I wrote that comment, it was a reference to Peter Freestone interview.

Freddie Mercury has one of the most overrated falsettos ever.

I'd vote for someone you guys haven't heard of anyway. Cool

I'd vote for hdhdbdjsnanskdhdnjow. He's the best falsetust counterbaritone ever. You guys probably haven't heard of him though, since he's in the super underground, indie, cult band, "Assburgurs". Don't check him out though, because I don't want them to sell out. :/

Axl Rose on a greatest falsettos list, really? I can't think of many occasions where I've even heard him use falsetto... Suspect

For metal, it would have to be Andi Deris for the way he uses it to save his voice to sing Kiske's era.  While not the best it is amazing when he has a good set or does stuff in studio with it.

As for a countertenor, I'd have to say Vitas.  While Nomi was an East Village innovator...he's got nothing on Vitas.

Also!  I never noticed falsetto from Michael Jackson.  Most of it is his actual feminate like high tenor voice that his father beat into him.



His younger falsetto was my favorite.  It's not as good as it was thanks to smoking like a chimney and drinking a lot aka the German life.



His falsetto on this mixed so well with his head and mix voice. In Love

Show some god damn respect to the king of pop you pseudo-Norwegian fuck.  Never heard Michael do falsetto?  What the fuck have you ever turned on a single radio station in your life and heard this?



Also I am more inclined to believe his voice is high because that's his inherit laryngeal anatomy and not child abuse.. ffs I'm tempted to call Sippe in for this one you've fucked up all across the board on this one son.  PM if you want to work this out but I don't know I think it's too late.
