Simon Le Bon

Voice type: Tenor
Vocal range: E2-F♯5

Significant high notes:

F♯5 ("To Whom It May Concern")
E5 ("None of the Above")
E♭5 ("Ordinary World")
D5 ("Too Much Information")
C♯5 ("Shelter")
C5 ("None of the Above", "The Wild Boys", "Breath After Breath", "Love Voodoo")
B4 ("To Whom It May Concern", "The Wild Boys", "Night Boat", "Ordinary World", "Drowning Man", "Sin of the City", "Shelter", "Love Voodoo")
B♭4 ("A View to a Kill", "Too Much Information")
A4 ("Breath After Breath", "Shelter")
G♯4 ("Rio")
G4 ("Come Undone", "Femme Fatale", "Night Boat")

Significant low notes:

E2 ("Drowning Man", "None of the Above")
F♯2 ("To Whom It May Concern", "Shotgun")
G2 ("Sin of the City", "Night Boat", "UMF", "Femme Fatale")
G♯2 ("Too Much Information")
A2 ("Drowning Man", "UMF", "Shelter")
B♭2 ("Come Undone")
B2 ("Rio")

.......................................................
*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.


Like various other new wave vocalists, Simon Le Bon purposely uses a ragged baritone style often on Duran Duran's songs. His lows are impressively strong, but his natural voice placement is that of a typical low tenor. Joe Elliott would probably be a good example of a singer with naturally a similar voice to Le Bon's, just rangier.

C#5 (Blue) "Skin Trade"
C5 Serious, All She Wants Is (Both harmonies but full)
B4 "New Moon on Monday" (Harmony)
A4 "The Reflex", "Girls on Film", "New Moon on Monday", "I Don't Want Your Love"
G4 "Save a Prayer"

"All She Wants Is" and "I Don't Want Your Love" also have some low parts in them.

I had just listened to "Greatest" but not with the intent of notewatching, I still picked those up. Unfortunately I can't pinpoint an E5 (probably blue) that I heard. I thought I would post them in a more organized way, if you're interested you can listen for yourself.

You're honestly bumping a thread made in 2012 for that? Yeah, shocker, that was the vocal types used at the time.
