Songs With the Hardest Vocals to Imitate


The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

Open your ears, folks and listen to Marc Martel singing Bohemian Rhapsody from start to finish including the operatic section, accompanied only by himself playing the piano. He even looks as though he could be related to Freddie, and I'm not the only one who thinks that.

Marc Martel is phenomenal and is the only singer who can sing this song - I guess you are referring to the amazing video "Bohemian Rhapsody - Marc Martel (one-take)". - Metal_Treasure

Freddie Mercury was a genius.

Just try singing this song, then you'll realise Freddie Mercury really was a one of a kind.

2 Painkiller - Judas Priest Painkiller - Judas Priest

Should be first. You can't cover this because Rob Halford is a god. - Userguy44

3 Child in Time - Deep Purple Child in Time - Deep Purple

I wish I could scream like him. - Userguy44

It's hard enough to actually hit the notes, let alone to sound like Ian Gillan! - Gg2000

4 My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards
5 Given Up - Linkin Park

I doubt anyone can scream like chester (17 sec! )

A good scream but I actually know singers who can scream for 28 and even 33 seconds. - Metal_Treasure

6 Nessun Dorma - Luciano Pavarotti
7 Look at Me Now - Chris Brown
8 Someone Like You - Adele

I can honestly say that I sound so much like her when I sing this song that it reduces people to tears... - Britgirl

9 Keeper of the Seven Keys, PT 2 - Helloween
10 Frum da Tip of My Tung - Twista

The Contenders

11 Kim - Eminem
12 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian
13 Grenade - Bruno Mars
14 Angel of Death - Slayer
15 The Final Episode (Let's Change the Channel) - Asking Alexandria
16 Injection - Rise Against
17 Chop Suey! - System of a Down
18 Get Back - The Beatles
19 Dracula - Iced Earth
20 My Bad Side - Papa Roach
21 Rolling In the Deep - Adele

One of my favourite songs. So frustrating that I can't sing along to it.

We could have had it alll *cough cough* Rolling in the deeep *Cough cough cough* - AnonymousChick

24 Fury of the Storm - Dragonforce
25 Hats Off to (Roy) Harper - Led Zeppelin

27 Hello - Adele

The massive scream at the end is impossible to replicate. - lavillaof2112

29 Cygnus x - 1 Book I: The Voyage

This song contains the highest note that Geddy Lee ever sang, a Bb5. The rest of the song is also higher than most of Geddy's work. - lavillaof2112

30 Emotions - Mariah Carey
31 Proclamation - Gentle Giant

Derek's voice is one of a kind

32 When the Curtain Falls - Greta Van Fleet

34 Superstitious - Stevie Wonder

Impossible to sing...
