Hardest Songs to Sing
The Top Ten Hardest Songs to Sing
Best song ever. Queen is the most amazing, talented band ever. There wouldn't be classic rock without them
This song is insanely hard to sing. My sister (a low alto) and I (a mid low soprano) have to both sing this to hit the high and low notes
Especially that section in the middle of the song. Very tough indeed.
Also, where is The Show Must Go On? Nobody can sing that song with as much emotion and passion as Freddie Mercury did. - Metarock
As someone else said (trying to imply it was not difficult), CHOIRS sing it. CHOIRS sing a song that was actually a five part harmony by one man. Freddie Mercury single handedly creates a choir out of his amazingly versatile voice. Find another man that can and I'll agree it "isn't that difficult ".
This is very difficult start to finish - very fast and high pitched singing, shrieks, screams, and especially his perfect sustain of about 18-19 seconds at the end. - Metal_Treasure
I have automatic respect for you if you even attempt to sing this song
Whenever I try to sing this song, my voice cracks about twice per second, and that long extension at the end of the word "Painkiller" near the end of the song is nearly impossible to pull off. - Metarock
Just try to sing this song perfectly, just try, there is a reason this song is ranked IMPOSSIBLE in rock band for all instruments
Going from belt to head voice... and also range range RANGE
It makes you switch notes quite quickly and harshly but creates a good texture.
Definitely one of the hardest song to sing.
You need to have a lot of breath to sing this song
No human can speak, oifnbwofnbownfbw Make Up! in 1 second except for this dude.
Wake up ashdhvdgs make up ashdhgdhdj then my tongue break - Jancukman777
WAKE UP! HHHSUHSYHSHBSHUGYGYGW MAKE UP! GSGYSBYSBSHUAHUHSUB SHAKE UP! UUUSSGHSGYGUSHUSUHSUHSUH MAKE UP! - DaringXx
I can rap this whole song until the whole part after "hey fab... imma kill you"
The rap version of Bohemian Rhapsody - LightningStrike
Ok this song is literally Impossibke to sing should be in top 10
Except the scream that is really long, the song is very easy to sing. But there are many songs with screams longer than this scream that aren't on this list. I know about songs with screams that are 25, 28 and even 33 seconds long. - Metal_Treasure
This is indeed one of the most challenging Linkin Park songs. But Chester himself said that Crawling was actually the hardest Linkin Park song to sing (at least for him)
Try doing the 17 second scream in the middle - spiderskull98
This song is easy and even if you disagree with me it doesn't belong over I will always love you. - PewPewAssassin
There's a reason why you never hear anyone try to cover it or karaoke it. It's impossible for most people to sing and be able to hit all the notes.
Can you hit whistle notes like her? no? then this song deserves to be on top five, no further comments..
Needs to be #1
Mariah Carey hits a G7
Needs to be higher. - Yoshiandaglover
Serj, what a legend
Difficult because it requires high degree of versatility - there are frequent and sudden switches/transitions, and it needs both smooth angelic soft voice and powerful demonic harsh voice. The emotion is also difficult to replicate. Screams are so melodic.
The song structure is progressive - it has several parts that are not repeated (it doesn't even have a chorus). Great job Hansi Kürsch! - Metal_Treasure
It's over 10 minutes long with tempo changes and Ian Gillan screams for about 2 minutes at the end (after 8:00). These are golden screams. - Metal_Treasure
In my opinion you need a lot of power to sing this one
Good luck doing the scream parts. - Userguy44
This dude has the craziest falsetto I've ever heard and a vocal range of 4+ octaves. - Metal_Treasure
The song gradually gets higher as the song goes by, and there usually isn't much room for breath. Range is a huge part of this song, and the whistle tones add another element to the song in which only some can hit perfectly. This is a very hard song, but not impossible.
Mariah's songs are always hard even for famous singers
This song is one of the reasons why Mariah is a queen. - Yoshiandaglover
Try nailing this one if you disagree!
The song is about 14 minutes long with difficult vocal lines but the most impressive thing is the series of perfect sustains after 12:30, one of them is about 18 seconds long. Pure eargasm. Great job Michael Kiske! - Metal_Treasure
You need vocal range as well as an ability to scream and to whisper. its really a masterpiece. if you want to see how hard it is to sing 1:1 just see Oli Sykes trying to do it.
Back in black is one of the hardest songs to sing of all time. This comes close
I just love the song.
Her high notes and reruns are so hard to master
This is song is so easy for me and I'm 14
The only work that I can understand is twist.
14 minutes of epic singing (I prefer the 2012 version). Hansi Kürsch left his throat on these complex and overlapping vocal harmonies - you hear a choir but there's no choir, he's the only singer. The song is very complex with symphonic arrangements and many tempo changes but it's mostly fast and energetic. - Metal_Treasure
Bohemian Rhapsody x2! Very difficult
Is this a joke...
Daniel Heiman has some mad vocal skills and if you are really interested in difficult singing material, I would recommend to try this song (it's over 12 min long, progressive power metal). - Metal_Treasure
what a legendry song it is, vocals are very rare and nobody can't reach at that painful voice with powerpacked singing , freddie is the greatest of the greatest❤
Good luck with this one. - Userguy44
The intro scream is about 23 seconds long (Matt Smith). The song isn't easy in general and is almost 10 minutes long. - Metal_Treasure
I have heard this song performed by a lot of different people, and while the notes are fairly manageable in terms of vocal range (i.e. it doesn't span a big range), the emotion required to properly sing this is, bar none, the most difficult vocal performance to sing.
There have ever been two proper performances of this song ever. One was the recording that Pink Floyd used from Clare Torry, and the other is a cover on YouTube from a Brazilian woman by the name of Lilian Ximenes.
Anyone who says anything but this song has yet to hear this song.
This song is very difficult to consistently nail. Clare Torry is amazing and very consistent on this song, and with the type of song that this is, it's very hard to keep a consistent voice throughout. - Metarock
To sing this song you need both growls and epic operatic voice. Oh, and Devin Townsend has a 5 octave vocal range. His vocal skills are insane. - Metal_Treasure
Many have tried, no one sings the chorus right. You've got to pace yourself, it seems simpler than it actually is. - truckturner
Try the Bon Jovi voice also lol.
I sung this in chorus class in high school. It was tough.
Just listen this verse starts with "chipping around kick my brains..." line. - zxm
Really this isn't hard to sing at all
Actually it's not 'that' hard to sing,
if you can endure for 24 minutes...
yes 24 minutes for one song... That's why I love'em
