So some lunatic put together an interactive chart of the vocal ranges of the most popular musicians
of the last couple of generations (based on their studio albums), and it turns out that Mariah Carey only came in second... to Axl Rose.
Mariah still has the highest note (a G7 from Emotions
), but her overall range is a few notes shy of Axl's 5.5-plus octaves. Axl also had the lowest note, thanks to Chinese Democracy
's There Was a Time
, juuust barely beating Barry White.
The slimmest range on the chart was countryist Luke Bryan
, with just barely over two octaves of range over four albums.
