Simply the best. There is no match for Barry Gibb's falsetto.

Love him!

Bobby Debarge.

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!

2 Prince

Prince had one of the highest male falsettos in the world. It was devastating to see him go.

3 Jeff Buckley Jeff Buckley Jeffrey Scott "Jeff" Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997) raised as Scott "Scottie" Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. more.
4 Matt Bellamy Matt Bellamy Matthew James "Matt" Bellamy is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and compose most famous for being the main vocalist in alternative rock band Muse.

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.

No contest. But Barry Gibb is a distant 2nd

This should not even be a competition. Listen to Surf's Up and tell me anyone did it better. - Idontreallycaretoomuch

His Falsettos were a very important part for the legendary Beach Boys harmonies. Also he could hit high falsetto notes pretty natural and effortless.

Guys, Frankie Valli when he was with the Four Seasons is the coolest falsetto you would ever hear. It adds a particular flare. Sherry, Big Girls Don't Cry, Walk Like a Man, Working My Way Back to You, Rag Doll, Opus 17, Dawn (Go Away), the list goes on forever. - markleo

15 Philip Bailey

Earth, Wind & Fire - Reasons (Official Music Video). Go watch that. A lot of these people don't deserve to be ranked above Bailey.

Whoever put this list together knows nothing about music. Phillip Bailey is top ten if not top 5. And where is Curtis Mayfield? And who in the heck put Weekend and Justin Timberfake on this list, lol.

Listen to fantasy

How is this guy so low, listen to Reasons on EWF 1975 'That's the Way of the World' album. For god sake, the Weeknd above Phillip Bailey?

16 Andy Gibb Andy Gibb

Andy Gibb's vocal is a younger-barry-gibb, and has a very similar falsetto vocal, which is better and Barry's, commented by brother Barry.
Well, I think that's quite true, Andy Gibb's falsetto is more smooth, especially in high note.

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?
Bane, SRB

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.
