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 see, absolute perfection. Nobody deserves number 1 more then 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 then Robin, 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.
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!

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 vocal range, measuring up to 5 octaves.
Impressiv vocal range and the best high notes, very good powerful opera voice, the closest you can get to a castrato singer today.
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 !
Falsett Dimash is a separate conversation. This register sounds like a full-fledged, voluminous voice colored with vibrato. Dimash has no equal here!
5 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-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!

His Falsettos were a very important part for the legendary Beach Boys harmonies. Also he could hit high falsetto notes pretty natural and effortless.
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.
He's the Best at this game.

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 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.
Check out his sing Sincerely. He hits notes so high others can't reach.

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 to the top of the list. He also holds the record for longest held note in a song, in at least UK chart history. 20.2 secs in the a-ha song 'Summer moved on'
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?
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.

18 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 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.
19 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 EWF discography, not just Reasons. His falsetto is otherworldly.
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?
