Could make a whole list of Annie Haslam this and that because she can hold really big high notes for a fairly long time with seemingly little effort. I will stick to the most widely known note, that is the E5 on Ashes are burning. E5 does not itself sound very amazing for a soprano but you just have to hear her nail it to see why in this case. She also does amazing stuff on the octave directly above.
I also love just any time that Dio hits a C5 or the C sharp. Will be cliche again and go with Neon Knights. No link needed, I think.
A big shout for Loving You. Another one of my favourites, though I prefer Adventures in Paradise above all, especially the outro. Take A Little Trip is also brilliant, backed by Wonder's wondrous chords.
You used to have the Minnie Riperton thread, did you not? "Les Fleurs" is my personal favourite, if only for that buried C♯7 in the outro!
I think her best high note is a whistle B♭5 in a live performance of "Inside my Love", which she sustains for thirteen seconds!
Yeah, I had made it because I was frankly astonished not to find one of such a total range Goddess. Yes, Inside My Love is incredible too. But you should really listen to Annie flatten the B5 on Prologue then, the most incredible B5 I have heard from a rock/pop singer.
What's the note Jeff Buckley hits here? Not the highest of the highs maybe, but the intensity is incredible. And he did it live as well.
