Would love to see your reaction for this video. Female singer a.k.a vocal coaches too from my country, Malaysia.
She sing her own song for the prestigious music award in Malaysia called "ANUGERAH JUARA LAGU".
Malaysian would love to hear your comments about her performance. Thanks!
Just subscribed! Love your channel that I just found today! And I’d never heard this amazing rendition of a wonderful song. I’ve got to play Mr. C’s original video for my son, who has loved this song since I started playing for him when he was a toddler... and now that he’s a teenager playing 🎹 & taking music theory... I’ve got to also show him your wonderful analysis! 🙏🏼🎧 🎶 ♾🤘🏼
Oh just realized I’ve heard his rendition of 16 Tons that my dad played for me when I was a kid... too cool.
I love all of your reactions, but am surprised that you haven't reacted to Glennis Grace of Holland. Her own song Afscheid is incredible, her cover of Bon Jovi's Always is magnificent and her rendition of Whitney Houston's I wanna run to you is superb. She can sound exactly like Whitney, but she has her own voice and is nothing but lungs. I hope you give Glennis, one of the world's premier vocalists a chance and react to her. Thanks. Eric
I always comment on how nimble Geoff is with his vocals. He's able to not only hit the notes, but sustain them without sounding strained or forced. Most (not all) basses are lucky to hit some of those notes, and often they are just a sound, whereas with Geoff, I can always hear and understand the actually words. Love your reaction and breakdown!
I like Geoff as much as you . He is incredible vocal actor. We can see it in Oogie Boogie song and The Little Mermeid Medley .. Geoff as Ursula is great ( and blue ☺️). In the "My mother told me" mr Castelluci is using something like mongolian overtons( sorry for my English). It could be very nice to see your analisis beacuse yours are te most interesting. Best wishes.☺️👍
I think what I like best about this piece is his resonance. In some other pieces (like My Mother Told Me) he gets very edgy in the bass. This one his tone is so much smoother. Yes, some of that is in post, but post can't take a very edgy sound and make it this smooth. So not only can he hit those crazy low notes, he can give them life and nuance.
Another wonderful reaction. If you can pull yourself loose from those low bass notes, can you listen to Lucy Thomas and react. I think this girl has an amazing voice, and I’d like your opinion/ reaction. She recently posted a cover of Eva Cassidy’s version of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”. She also does an excellent solo of”Hallelujah”. I think she’s another rising star. I think she’s 17 now.
Thank you, I don’t know how to post a link on YouTube.
This is my favorite reaction that you have done. I really enjoyed watching you squirm around in the best parts of the song. Perhaps a seatbelt would be a good thing when reacting to him LOL. This was great! Regarding the song, it's a good song, but Geoff catches me with those low notes he throws in there. Harmonizing with himself was a nice touch so we can see his range, and he has a huge range. Thank you for your analysis, and your efforts making these videos. Take care and stay safe.
"Intervalic distance".........love that term, and I will use it to make (yet another, I know) recommendation to you of a video to review. Tomi P, another incredible bass singer, recently released a mulit-layer/multi-track (like this one from Mr. Castellucci) cover he did of Hellfire from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Several reviewers/commenters of that video have stated that on (at least) one point in the arrangement he is covering 6 OCTAVES across all of his recorded layers. I don't want to spoil it for you, but one of the reviewers places the lowest note he hits at a location not even on the standard piano keyboard. The guy is pretty amazing. Much like Geoff, his "more normal range" voice is also quite incredible.
LOL!!! Who else but Jess can one minute give you music reactions with seriously deep music theory and follow it the next minute undeniable evidence that lets us know every cell in her body just underwent "musical ecstasy" - what a magical blend, this is what all-star YT reactors do! Feeding us knowledge for our minds and passion for our hearts....
