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 knew you would love this. That's why I insisted on recommending it last year. Now it remains to react to Tim Foust singing Misty Mountains.

The Every Maker - Nick

He released "16 Tons" which has become my favorite of his songs. I'm definitely a fan of his. Check it out, you will not be sorry. That an "Oogie Boogie Song" from Voiceplay. He sing's lead on it and it's amazing.

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.

Well, for Geoff solo work he did do a "16 ton's" video performance that was good. You might also try Voiceplay's Imagine Dragon's "Warriors" cover. or even their "Superstition" cover. They also did some Disney, "Little Mermaid Medley" and "Moana Medley" .

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.

Hank Studdard

"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.

When he begins with the keyboard, the last chord of the intro with his left hand he plays the lowest key. Then he sings that lowest key as the lead register. Look at it, you will see.

If you haven't seen it already, he does a cover of Radiohead's 'High and Dry' that's even more impressive than this, believe it or not. And it's in the original key 😮

Can you take a look at Jonathan Young's "Bells of Notre Dame"? And if you want more Geoff, do Voiceplay's "Oogie Boogie Man." It's definitely my favourite song out of everything he's done.

I'm only nitpicking because I know you appreciate technical terminology and jargon. With that being said, and as unbelievable as it may be, Geoff actually describes himself as a baritone with a bass range. From a technical perspective, he's correct

I love that I just mentioned Geoff in you're last live, and you enthusiastically said you did know him and here we are - Reaction!! 😁You kept this one close to your chest, although you did let us know many secrets to upcoming reaction releases. 😁👍❤️
