Deborah "Debbie" Harry

Post  B6 on Mon Nov 05, 2012 12:05 pm



Voice Type: Alto (later Contralto)
Sung Range: B2-F5
Total Range: A2-B♭5

Significant High Notes:

  • B♭5 ("Victor")
  • G5 ("Victor")
  • F♯5 ("The Tide Is High")
  • F5 ("What I Heard", "I Know But I Don't Know")
  • E5 ("Victor", "Call Me", "Rapture", "Maria", "War Child", "In The Flesh")
  • E♭5 ("Victor")
  • D5 ("Pretty Baby", "Call Me", "In The Flesh", "What I Heard", "Maria" live 1999 NYC)
  • C♯5 ("Maria", "Heart Of Glass", "In The Flesh", "War Child", "Victor")
  • C5 ("Victor", "Pretty Baby", "War Child", "Heart Of Glass", "Rapture", "What I Heard")
  • B4 ("Atomic", "Maria", "Heart Of Glass", "Call Me", "Sunday Girl", "Rapture", "Pretty Baby", "In The Flesh")
  • B♭4 ("Call Me", "One Way Or Another", "Hanging On The Telephone")
  • A4 ("Atomic", "Maria", "Call Me", "Rapture", "Sunday Girl", "War Child", "Victor", "What I Heard")

Significant Low Notes:

  • E3 ("Atomic", "Heart Of Glass", "Maria", "One Way Or Another", "The Tide Is High", "Rapture", "Fade Away And Radiate", "Pretty Baby", "War Child")
  • D3 ("One Way Or Another")
  • C♯3 (?"I Know But I Don't Know")
  • C3 ("What I Heard")
  • B2 ("Heart Of Glass", "Maria")
  • A2 ("Maria")


Really peculiar voice, she does very cool things with it. I remember her having a G#2 somewhere, it was discussed by Ray and Celice IIRC and it was a quick slide just like the second-octave notes in "Maria". I'm not sure about the lows in "I Know But I Don't Know": they do kind of sound like her, but their guitarist Frank Infante is credited for co-lead vocals on that track...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHCdS7O248g#t=3m57s Not sure if guitar or voice... and E6 either way. Plus some weird C#6s from 4:34 on, again I'm not sure if it's voice.

It sounds like some instrument, that's definitely not her voice, imo.

Also, she sounds more like an alto to me. Wink

About the voice type, I was meaning to change it to "Alto (later contralto)", IMO she sounds really Ursula-esque on "new" songs.

Here we go
2:50, I can't really tell if it's an illusion or she's actually singing F5s in the harmonies ("you told ME").

This sounds like F4 to me.
