Alright then. I'll take that as a yes.

You make me very sad, Syndrome.

Oh, don't call me the authority on voice editing. I guess I replied to the wrong one there... Sorry. Anyway, I don't know about the Saint in the City cover. I hope it wasn't edited, and surely Bowie's voice can go that deep anyway?

Never mind, then. I thought you were just being a bastard by mocking me.

I'm inclined to think STARMAN has the greatest vocal range in the one song. It just climbs higher through the verse and the sections of the chorus. If you're going to sing it, it's a tricky one to get the key right.

I'd say 'Right'. It starts off very low and sensual and at the ending he uses very high notes.

What about 'Life on Mars?' or 'Teenage Wildlife'? The chorus in the former is considerably higher than the verses and the wailing at the end of TW is a pretty high register(even if it's falsetto)

rrrrrrrrrrrr.............

The Live Version of Stay on the Ryko Station to Station there is one bit where he starts from an incredibly high note and does a crescendo (I think that's what you call it) to a low note. those were the days when his vocals were at their peak.

You mean that "sta-A-ay!" thing? I hate that bit.

Oh! I didn't even think of that one. I've always loved that part of the song.
