*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks extremely bad, unimpressive or unintentional notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes.


One of the most eclectic musical characters there was, Tiny Tim looked like Justin Hawkins' crazed cousin and sang with many different styles throughout his lenghty career, including the common usage of his vibrato-heavy trademark falsetto and occasional numbers sung in his natural lower register.



This is what he is usually known for...



A surprising performance, Tiny Tim channels Elvis here, just with a crazier vibrato.

I believe the first note is an F♯5, but I think he hits G5 or G♯5 later.

Who decided to call him a baritone anyways.... I would call him a Countertenor.... His lows are very strong, yes... But he relies on high notes for almost all his songs..

Shut up. It seems like your current shtick is to start a debate, then vindicate yourself with the "I DON'T CARE, SINGING IS ALL THAT COUNTS" argument/martyrdom.

Also, you obviously aren't familiar with Tiny Tim's voice - considering he sang almost half of his songs in his natural lower register and the rest in falsetto - so stop pretending anything else.

I`m not really familliar with Tim`s voice no, i know a few songs, but they`re all in falsetto, and because he had a great falsetto abbility i thought that he used it on everything... Until i scrolled up and saw his low notes  Shocked

Why is Tiny Tim's voice type, Baritone/Countertenor? Is that a debate? like unconfirmed between him being either Baritone or Countertenor? Or is he a baritone that possesses Countertenor abilities/range? I'm aware this is probably a dumb question.

He was a baritone who regularly sang countertenor in falsetto. He basically had two voices he regularly used, one being his natural baritone and the other the chipmunk falsetto.

The "Livin' In The Sunlight, Lovin' in the Moonlight" performance embedded above has an F♯5 and a G5 too.
Had never heard of this guy. He sounds lovely Razz

Cute. Sings up to D5, I think. E5s or so at 2:33 and 2:44.

Not my favorite falsetto sound but the voice is definitely pleasant. The vibrato is what gives the charm. I could imagine an apocalypse where every surviving piece of music was destroyed besides Tiny Tim's falsetto music.
