Fanatical for Falsettos

I'm fanatical for falsettos.  Thom Yorke of the band Radiohead has the quintessential falsetto, but there are many excellent examples out there.  What got me thinking about my love of a good falsetto is this video my father-in-law shared with me, Blind Faith's Can't Find My Way Home.

It's one of my favorite songs, but I hadn't heard it in years and years.  I'd forgotten how much I liked Steve Winwood's high voice.



Here are some of my other favorite examples of fantastic falsettos:

Jimmy Somerville of Bronski Beat:



Early Elton John:



Roy Orbison and k.d. lang:



Jeff Buckley:



And Thom Yorke:
