Man Voice


Joe is currently obessed with this this new song by Hillary McRea. I think it is a good song…but I’m having trouble getting over something. Watch the video & I’ll tell you what bothers me about it.

Great song right? Well, I thought so too until I learned that it was a girl singing. On the radio it was great. Saw the video & I’m weired out by the fact she’s a girl. I close my eyes & I love the song…I see the video & it feels odd to me. Agree?

Honestly, I probably don’t have too much room to talk. I don’t exactly have a girly voice. I will never for get being in 8th grade & my science teacher telling me that I have a HUSKY voice.

    I would have to agree with you. I had my husband guess by listening and he said it sounded like a guy singing. The video almost seems like her voice is being dubbed.

    really? i think her voice is deep, but i don’t think she sounds like a guy….

    Here’s an article that talks some about her voice:

    “Every Day (When Will You Be Mine?) is the lead song on the album, and probably the most catchy. It’s an infectious, upbeat mix of pop, folk and rock. McRae’s voice takes some getting used to. She has a deep voice, similar to Joss Stone’s. It verges on masculine to the point that when she starts the chorus on some songs, it almost sounds like she’s singing a duet with a male singer. Looking at her, you wouldn’t expect her to have such a strong, emotive and soulful voice…”

    I agree with you. Without knowing better, I would surely imagine a guy singing that. She’s got that Kathleen Turner voice thing going.

    It’s definitely masculine, especially in the chorus like Jan’s comment mentioned. But I do like the song!

    Mom thought about naming you “Bob” because of your voice but I insisted it would be rude.

    i’m pretty sure she’s a tranny

    i definitely won’t dispute the man-voice on that tune, but DANG that’s a great song.

    Creepy, good song but wayyy creepy!

    You can hear her speaking voice in this interview clip. It makes her singing voice make more sense when you know she speaks in that same octave.

  11. Denise Says:

    I admit, I was thinking the same thing mcgilla posted.

  12. Tammy Says:
