1 Barry Gibb

Simply the best. There is no match for Barry Gibb's falsetto.
Over 70, with more than 50 years singing and he still has it! Barry and his brothers dominated the charts in the 70s and if his 2 brothers were still alive, I'm betting they would still be recording. Barry still packs the venues when he does a concert! His falsetto was lead on so many of their songs and he can still sing them today! Barry deserves to be Number 1!
Prince had one of the highest male falsettos in the world. It was devastating to see him go.

This guy has one of the best falsettos to date!
Check out the end of the song "showbiz." He has an incredibly unique and screaming falsetto voice that can be found on almost every Muse song in their first three-four albums. On "survival" he hits the same high note as showbiz, but it sounds completely different, showing how his falsetto style has changed from an intense scream to something more opera like.

17 Morten Harket
Morten is the greatest. Way too low in the list
These list are mostly pop. Try: Martin Gore and Anthony of Anthony and the Johnson's. Throw in Andy Bell.
He should be at least 15 positions up higher. One of the best falsett singers ever!
And where is Paul Young on this list?
Just listen to a the isolated vocal track of “Take On Me”

After getting buried by his record company as he put it himself.never gave up after record company wouldn't promote spin and the tension and the spark which killed his solo career in America.his songs mean something personal to a lot of people.
Best singer ever,can actually sing,writes all his own songs straight from his heart, and his own life experiences,underrated and strong enough to come back after getting knocked down by his former record label.a surviour who has battled domestic violence as a kid,getting abused at school, getting told what to do by record company and battling depression for a long time.
