Top Ten Male Singers with the Best Falsetto

The Top Ten
1 Barry Gibb Barry Alan Crompton Gibb is a British singer, songwriter and record producer who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the group Bee Gees, one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed groups in the history of popular music.

Barry's falsetto is simply unforgettable. Barry has the richest, clearest, greatest falsetto I have ever seen, absolute perfection. Nobody deserves number one more than him.

Robin and Maurice's falsettos too were special in their own right. Robin had a distinctive high-pitched falsetto which can easily be heard in the Bee Gees songs.

Maurice's falsetto, on the other hand, was more in the middle but more similar to Barry's than Robin's. Maurice's falsetto did not stand out like Barry's, and it was not as high-pitched as Robin's, but it perfectly balanced the Bee Gees' sound.

The Bee Gees were the masters of falsetto, hands down. Nobody could do falsetto like the Bee Gees did.

2 Prince Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 - April 21st, 2016) was an American musician, best known for being one of the most popular and influential artists from the 80s, with songs such as "Purple Rain", "Little Red Corvette", "1999", and "When Doves Cry" .

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

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

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 to 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.

This guy has one of the best falsettos to date!

5 Dimash Kudaibergen Dinmukhamed Kanatuly Kudaibergenov, commonly known as Dimash Kudaibergen (born May 24th, 1994) is a Kazakh singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Dimash is best known as a contestant of Chinese talent show "Singer 2017" where he was declared a runner-up. He is also known for possessing a wide... read more

Dimash has nothing to do in this category because he has not a fake, but a voice with volume and vibrato! And all the same - he is the best!

Falsetto Dimash is a separate conversation. This register sounds like a full-fledged, voluminous voice colored with vibrato. Dimash has no equal here!

Dimash's falsetto is often praised because it has color, volume, and a gorgeous vibrato. Dimash is the best!

6 Justin Timberlake Justin Randall Timberlake is an American singer-songwriter, actor, dancer, and record producer. Born and raised in Tennessee, he appeared on the television shows Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club as a child.
7 Chris Martin Christopher Anthony John "Chris" Martin is an English singer, songwriter and musician. He is best known as the lead singer of rock band Coldplay.

If he's good at anything, it's writing ballads and singing with a falsetto.

8 Michael Jackson Michael Jackson (Michael Joseph Jackson; August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter. He passed away from cardiac arrest caused by a propofol and benzodiazepine overdose on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael... read more
9 Brian Wilson Brian Douglas Wilson is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and record producer best known for being the multi-tasking leader and co-founder of the Beach Boys.

His falsettos were a very important part of the legendary Beach Boys harmonies. Also, he could hit high falsetto notes pretty naturally and effortlessly.

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

Sometimes his voice is just high-pitched, other times it is a falsetto.

10 Thom Yorke Thomas Edward "Thom" Yorke is an English musician best known as the singer and principal songwriter of the alternative rock band Radiohead.

Unlike many on this list, Thom manages to squeeze unbelievable amounts of emotion out of every word. The only one here who I think can compare is Jeff Buckley.

The Contenders
11 The Weeknd Abęl Makkonen Tesfaye, known professionally by his stage name The Weeknd, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He was born on 16 February 1990 in Toronto, Ontario... read more

How the hell is Roger not even in the top 10?! What is wrong with you people?! I demand you put Roger at the number one spot!

You must be kidding not to put Roger on the top 10. I mean, listen to 'In the Lap of the Gods,' and you will see. Love Roger, and he should be number one.

His falsetto kicked ass in 'The March of the Black Queen.'

14 Frankie Valli Frankie Valli is an American singer and actor, known as the frontman of The Four Seasons beginning in 1960. He is known for his unusually powerful head voice.

I saw him live in concert when he was in his early 70s, and he was fantastic! And I love the musical "Jersey Boys." The guys I saw at different performances who were chosen to play the part of Frankie Valli were fabulous, both singing those high, high notes and their acting was great.

Guys, Frankie Valli when he was with the Four Seasons is the coolest falsetto you would ever hear. It adds a particular flair. 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.

15 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara, 5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Zanzibari-born British singer of Indian descent, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the British rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave... read more

The best rock singer, could do pop and opera just as well. He will forever be number one.

He could make anything with his voice. He could sing in falsetto, too.

Listen to: "Pain is so close to pleasure."

16 Morten Harket Morten Harket is a Norwegian musician, best known as the lead singer of the synthpop/rock band A-ha, which released ten studio albums and topped the charts internationally after their breakthrough hit "Take on Me" in 1985.

Just listen to 'There's Never a Forever Thing' by a-ha, and you'll put this guy at the top of the list. He also holds the record for the longest held note in a song, at least in UK chart history, 20.2 seconds in the a-ha song 'Summer Moved On'.

He should be at least 15 positions higher. One of the best falsetto singers ever! And where is Paul Young on this list? Bane, SRB

Morten is the greatest. He is way too low on the list.

17 King Diamond Kim Bendix Petersen, better known by his stage name King Diamond, is a Danish heavy metal musician. He is known for his extensive vocal range, usually sung in falsetto. King Diamond was originally known as the vocalist for Mercyful Fate, but has become notorious for his horror themed Concept albums... read more
18 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.

The best, hands down. Listen to the whole Earth, Wind & Fire discography, not just 'Reasons.' His falsetto is otherworldly.

How is this guy so low? Listen to 'Reasons' on Earth, Wind & Fire's 1975 'That's the Way of the World' album. For God's sake, The Weeknd above Philip Bailey?

19 Andy Gibb Andrew Roy Gibb was an English singer, songwriter, performer, and teen idol. He was the youngest brother of the Bee Gees.

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

20 Adam Levine Adam Noah Levine is an American singer and songwriter. He is the lead vocalist for the Los Angeles pop rock band Maroon 5.

Levine began his musical career in 1994, when he co-founded the band Kara's Flowers, of which he was the lead vocalist and guitarist. The band split up after their only album,... read more

Listen to 'Sugar' and 'What Lovers Do.' It's just some of the songs that were sung in a high tune!

21 Bobby Debarge

Bobby DeBarge... Listen to Switch. His brother El DeBarge is nice too, but Bobby... the son can wail.

22 Paul McCartney Sir James Paul McCartney (born 18 June 1942) is an English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. With John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, he gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential groups in the history of pop and rock... read more

He is best own as the lead singer of the American pop-rock band Panic! At The Disco. He is the only original remaining member... read more
24 Eddie Kendricks

Loved his falsetto on the early Temptations recordings and his solo career. Very smooth upward ascent into mezzo-soprano. Impressive.

Hands down, the only soul falsetto.

25 John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE (9 October 1940 - 8 December 1980) was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music.
