The Best Falsetto Singers - a "Men Only" Club

Source: http://djrobblog.com/archives/1212

25. Elton John

Best falsetto performances: “Bennie & the Jets,” “Tiny Dancer,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.” Elton used falsetto often, especially in his early-to-mid 1970s heyday. And although he never professed to be an R&B singer, nor even pretended to be able to hit the notes of his R&B contemporaries, his use of falsetto proved effective. The video below is of his classic “live” Soul Train performance a year after “Bennie & the Jets” was a hit. You’ll have to wait until about two-thirds through the performance to hear him unleash his falsetto on the all-too-happy group of Soul Train Dancers that surrounded him on stage.

    Hi, I'm DJ Rob, owner and author of the music blogsite djrobblog.com. I live in Chicago, IL and have been doing the blogsite since January 2015. It features articles about music news, history and trivia - both old and new. The features I enjoy doing the most are my djroblists. I've done dozens of lists ranking everything from blue-eyed soul singers to Prince's greatest songs. I only recently started converting them to listly to increase interaction with my readers. Take some time to enjoy them and let me know what you think! And check out djrobblog.com when you can!
