Inspired by a conversation on the Discord a couple days ago, what is the biggest range span singers span in one song? I'll start off with some of mine:
Frank Sinatra: "Nice 'n' Easy" live Meadowlands 1986 (C2 - F♯4) Elvis Presley: "I Got a Woman" live Dallas 1976 / Birmingham 1976 (G1 - B4) Tom Jones: "Soul of a Man" live with Jools Holland 2012 (F♯1 - A4) Sammy Davis Jr.: "You Can Have Her" (E♭2 - G5) Mel Tormé: "First Lady of Song" (E♭2 - G5) Bob Weir: "St. Stephen" (B2 - B5) Ella Fitzgerald: "In a Mellow Tone" live (B♭2 - B♭5) (this one may not actually be the biggest span for all I know but y'know) Tommy Shaw: "Reach for the Bottle" (G2 - G5)
Now FEED ME MORE.
If you ever want to buy any scones off of me, I have way too many.
Casey Crescenzo: "The Lake and the River" (E2-E5) Courtney Swain: "Little Specks of Calcium" (F3-C6) Liam McCormick: "Brittle Bones" (A2-A5) Ikkyu Nakajima: "Sukima" (F♯3-F♯6) Jim Grey: "Graves" (G♯2-G♯5) Paul Janeway: "GotItBad" (B2-B5) Raul Panther III: "The Will of One" (A2-G5) Shara Nova: "Freak Out" (E3-E6) Rachael Price: "Darryl" (E3-D6) Anna Murphy: "The Prophet's Song" (E♭3-B♭5)
Lots of 3 octave intervals here and nothing larger, oddly enough. I believe the upcoming Bjorn Strid thread has a song that goes from a nonmelodic B1 to a screamed F♯5, though, so that should be interesting.
Bruce Dickinson - "The Post-Alternative Seattle Fallout" D2-E5 Ronnie Radke - "Broken" D2-D5 Anette Olzon - "Song of Myself" D3-E♭5 Alexi Laiho - "Dead Man's Hand on You" B♭1-B♭4 Mark Knopfler - "Punish the Monkey" D2-A4 (though there's been some question over the A4s being him) Nick Drake - "Pink Moon" E♭2-D4 no joke Paris Hilton - "Good Time" E♭3-C5 Becca MacIntyre - "Like a Battery" G3-G5, "Vibetech" A3-A5, "Major System Error" B♭3-B♭5 David Balfour - "Ex Machina" A2-G♯5 (although I'm maybe not 100% on the A2 being him) Tony Kakko - "Wildfire, Part: II - One With the Mountain" G♯2-G♯5 Billie Piper - "First Love" E3-E5 Greg Puciato - "Setting Fire to Sleeping Giants" B1-E5 (but seriously need to redo that thread) Dean Friedman - "You're Invisible" G2-C♯5 Ricky Wilson - "We Stay Together" F2-D5 Ivan Dorin - "Singing All the Notes on the Piano" C1-C♯7
John Frusciante: "My Smile Is A Rifle" (F♯2 - F♯6) Aja Volkman: "Hollywood Sign" (E3 - F♯5) Jim Adkins: "Golden Days" (C♯3 - C♯5) and "Sparkle" (G♯2 - G♯4) (He has a few others as well that span two octaves) Bert McCracken: "The Mouth Of The Canyon" (D3 - G♯5) Adam Lazzara: "One-Eighty By Summer" (G2 - D5)
Of Mine: Adam Lopez- "All In Your Mind" (acapella) C2-F7 Dimash Kudaibergen- "Kinalama" G♯2-G♯7 Ivan Rebroff- "Im Tiefen Keller" F1-F5 Michael Sweet- "Yahweh" G♯2-G♯5 Joey Tempest- "Better Than Real" F♯2-G♯5 Miljenko Matijevic- "Say No More" F2-F5 and "Stay" G2-G5 JB- "Steel Versus Steel" B♭1-C5 Timo Kotipelto- "Out of the White Hole" A2-F5 Gregory Lemarchal- "SOS d'un terrien en detresse" B♭2-F5 Sara Squadrani- "Farewell My Hero" E3-F♯5 Fred Durst- "Boiler" C♯3-F5 Michael Starr- "Sweet Child O' Mine" (live) F♯2-G♯5
This is ridiculous, who wants to pitch a backing vocal B2 at three in the morning? OH BOY 3AM!
