The use of voice in some music-hall songs, a short survey
I am studying the use of voice in music hall songs, and am asking people to help me. All I need is your impression of the use of voice in the following extracts from songs (most extracts are between 30 and 45 seconds long). Any impressions are fine : adjectives to describe the voice, the accent or the character being put over, comparisons to styles or genres of song, music, show or other uses of voice, or descriptions of what impression the voice gives (sounds drunk/stupid/aggressive/ironic/bourgeois/shy/ etc).
You don’t need to identify the singers or the songs : I know who they are, I just want impressions from « innocent » listeners.
Simply write a list with your impression or descriptions of some or all of the extracts
And send it to me by mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be eternally grateful ! John Mullen, Université Paris-Est.
