Nice work; I'm going to go ahead and spoiler the old OP in this one so that you can fill in any notes you may have missed.

Hey, thanks. I'm pretty sure that I have all of the notes that were listed in the old OP (what I did was I copy and pasted it here and used that as a starting point), but I think it would be good to have it around for reference.

I didn't quite realize how big of a project this would be at first. I have four (possibly five) different band discographies to go through, as well as all of Damon's solo stuff. Yup, I've got a long road ahead of me.

I found a couple of notes if you want them, I'm a huge fan of Damon Albarn

D5's in Country Sad Ballad Man
harmonised C5's in Stylo (the "overload, overload" part, I'm pretty sure it's Damon)
nice G4's in Some Kind of Nature and F2's in the chorus harmonies
There kinda sounds like a hummed G2 in Empire Ants at 1:22
G4 in On Melancholy Hill (the ooooooh part near the end goes up to it)
B2's in the verse harmony of Plastic Beach, but they sound kinda like flat C3's for some reason

He has some parts on Deltron 3030:

Spoiler:

Spoken B1s in State of the Nation


Falsetto G#4s (sample at very start of and throughout song) and C#5s at 1:00


and could you timestamp the A1 you're hearing in Fire Coming Out of the Monkey's Head for me?

Jesus, sorry that it took so long for me to get around to answering your question, Mana

I'm mostly referring to the humming in the background first of all. If we split up each of the humming sections into four phrases, then I'm hearing the B1 (I decided that it wasn't an A1) in the fourth phrase. So for example, 0:22 here. It is extremely buried, though, so it's hard to tell.

Ah, ok cool that's actually where I thought it was. I cannot hear where that bottoms at all unfortunately, it is quite buried and to make matters worse it almost sounds like the lowest part doesn't follow the harmony. The best I can make out is an audible C♯2 in the right channel at about 0:25 (or maybe it's C2, as C♯ wouldn't fit the melody).
