Didn't really find anything about this on search...don't kill me if I missed it..and don't kill me if you don't like prefaces like these. :p
Anyhow....this ought to be a place to discuss what songs you think are good to start out on, what you have trouble on + exchange singing tips, and just talk about what you sing along to or play yourself.
Hard - Fix You: the falsetto in the end is tough because I can hit the notes but I can't sing them with any decent volume or feeling...though I do wonder if it would sound beefier just by gathering my 3 favourite friends to sing along/harmonize.
Easy - Green Eyes; especially because I play the live version that's been tuned down 1 step from the album version.
Fun - Square One. ^__^

Amsterdam in the end is pretty tricky! And viva la vida , some parts...

Easy - Swallowed in the Sea, Christmas Lights, Til Kingdom Come (except I have to go up the octave for the really low parts :P), Warning Sign, Yellow
Hard - Fix You, AROBTTH (it just sounds weird when I sing it!), Shiver, High Speed, A Whisper

I really find it easy to sing "Shiver" but I really hate the "You, are" parts in Clocks....
Easy: Politik, Yellow, High Speed
Hard: The last part of Everything's Not Lost, Fix You
(Just a few examples ;))

Well because I am a horrible singer everything is hard for me to sing, but the most fun have to be Viva and Life In Technicolor ii

I'm not just saying this because its new but christmas lights is the most, especially the beginning

Chris never sings that low right? (The beginning of Christmas Lights)
05-12-2010, 07:37 PM
Christmas Lights is super fun to sing, at night, blasting in your car. :cheesy:
05-12-2010, 08:08 PM
Chris sang pretty low in Yes.
Oh and I think Cemeteries of London & Christmas Light are quite easy to sing. :3

Christmas lights is fun to sing,and easy the 1st part
Fix you is hard :sad:

This should probably be in the instrument room.
05-12-2010, 10:51 PM
Easy: Clocks (I can hit those high notes,) Viva La Vida, Yellow, The Scientist, In My Place, Talk
Hard: I just could never do Yes. Too low! And for some reason, Christmas Lights is awfully hard to do without the song accompanying me.

Viva La Vida when I rarely used to sing it always sounded awful. Also, Green Eyes. Yeuch!
06-12-2010, 02:13 AM
Easy: Till Kingdom Come
Hard: Christmas Lights (seriously, I just CAN'T get it right)
Fun: Probably Rainy Day...but there are sooo many :wacky:
06-12-2010, 12:39 PM
Fun (if you don't mind sounding terrible) : Viva La Vida
06-12-2010, 02:16 PM
Oh yeah! Also easy: Green Eyes ;)
06-12-2010, 04:17 PM
Hard: Yes (i am female and i just can't reach the low notes :blank:) Shiver, Fix You.
Easy: Viva La Vida, Green Eyes
Fun: Life in Technicolour ii, 42, Lovers in Japan :wacky:

Since I was trying it the other night, I'll say that the cover of 2000 miles was pretty difficult!
So is Amsterdam.
Hardest Part is pretty simple though.

Being a guy, I'm more of a low tenor. I can hit high notes and stuff, but only to a certain volume. My best loud high note is an F sharp.
Anyways, I find that The Hardest Part LRLRL version is far harder to sing than the original studio version - it starts quite low, then gets progressively higher and higher. Shiver is tricky to sing for me in some spots, especially the chorus. Viva and Clocks are pretty easy. Fix You is a bitch, especially the 'Tears stream down your face' bit. The beginning of Christmas Lights is a bit of a strain (like I said, I'm tenor, and I sing tenor in choirs and stuff, so a low bass like Chris does is tricky), but the rest of it is pretty easy for me. The Scientist is pretty easy too.

For me , songs with lower register are the easiest . The begining of CL or yes , or viva or songs like that.
Difficult : Songs with falsetto :angry: . Fix you its incredibly hard to sing. And i dont even try it anymore cause , its just so impossible :( . Shiver the chorus its incredibly hard too.
