Higher does NOT mean better!
Subscribe with notifications on or I'll be HELLA sad man... HELLA SAD
Today we take a look at a compilation of female singers singing from very low notes to very high notes. While singing high notes can often be very impressive it doesn't necessarily sound better than low notes. In fact, If pushed high enough the voice just sounds like a boiling kettle. In this video we react to some examples and analyse WHY we often do seem to like people singing high notes in the first place.

    I agree with you! The perception that singing the highest note means you're the best singer is really frustrating to me. High notes can add meaningful and interesting dynamics to a song or a melody, but when there's too many of them in one song it makes it unpleasant to listen to. It always annoys me when singers are praised for superficial songs full of vocal gymnastics. For me, what makes a song more pleasant to listen to is when it's focused on conveying a message, emotion, or story, and making you feel something while listening to it, rather than just showing off how high someone can sing.

    High note is nice when it’s part of the melody, just like that Magic Flute sample. The other one you used are just random kettle sound throws at the end of a phrase for no reason at all... of course it’d sound bad because it’s not music anymore. The kettle sound in Behind these hazle eyes by Kelly Clarkson is amazing.

    I think part of the reason why most people sound better in their chest voice is that the thicker cord mass makes for a warmer sound, and it can also be sung quite gently and relaxed.

    I Totally Agree!! I'm not a singer but I love Great Music.. I thought no one could have said it any better. I guess it's ok to sing high notes once in a while, but not to the point that singer is already having a hard time or sort of forcing it. It is so nice to listen to soothing notes... Keep safe, Cheers!!
