Passasgio workout songs

Hey guys,

Can you please post some of your favorite songs that give a great passagio workout?
I'm not talking about a passasgio note here and there, I'm talking about these f*****s that live and breath inside the passagio. I used to dislike those songs for obvious reasons, now when I come across one, I'm all giddy to tackle that s.o.b.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

Good stuff!

Here's one of my faves.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJEofi_eJ-A

The reason I love it for passasgio practice is cause it's a fairly easy tune to sing that doesn't require much range at all, but man, you are in there the whole time and you have to be good at navigating that area of the voice to enunciate the words properly.

That's a good one.

For me it's just about any Journey song:  Don't Stop Believin, Any Way You Want It, Faithfully....  They all live in the passagio - and it's "light" passagio work which has it's own challenges.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

Well obviously it's going to depend on your voice. The songs some will find hard and right in their passaggio, others will be able to sing fine, and vice versa.

But here are some I really fail on:

Have fun attempting to sing that line "and you will see the end". The verses may be really tough too, depending on your voice.


Even though he doesn't, if you try to do this smoothly bridged from chest to head with good power throughout, you're gonna have a real challenge. Take the higher harmony.


I can actually get through the chorus of this, but the verses...Eb, E, F#, G#...back and forth, back and forth :mad:


This one, I don't know if there is any option but to pull chest up through the passaggio, but if you can figure out how to do those verses in a smoothly bridging into head yet retain the right amount of power, then damn you are good...


Bob once mentioned Hotel California is a tough passaggio one, it does seem like it. I haven't tried it yet since I'm not a huge fan of the song.


That's all I can think of for now

True. That's why it's not uncommon for me to take a "passasgio killer" tune and sing it five times back to back each time transposing it half step up to really iron out any and all rough spots or problematic areas of the voice until I get it right.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

i break it down into 2 groups:

( i know i'll be leaving some tough ones out.)

group 1 - skillfully moving in and out of it.

group 2 - sitting in it with little to no let up.

group 1:

micheal bolton - said i loved you but i lied
elton john - someone saved my life tonight
roy orbison - in dreams
gin blossoms - till i hear it from you (harder than it seems, because you cannot grip on to anything to sing it right)

group 2:

sorry guys, but you know i'm gonna say it....just about every foreigner song i know.
four tops songs
micheal bolton songs
chairman of the board - give me just a little more time
led zep songs
spiral staircase - i love you more today than yesterday
guess who songs
aretha franklin songs

Re: Passasgio workout songs

My advice would be to sing a lot of songs don't worry to much about passagio because you will always just be negotiating the passagio. It's never set in stone. The vowel, the approach, the dynamics etc all play into how you will negotiate the passagio.

I do agree with Daniel.   There are many songs that I sing which have the same notes as other songs but the words and order of notes are different. Some songs I have no problems with while others I cannot even approach.
   This came on the radio as I was driving home. I have never been able to get close to singing this.

egg, this one you have to work the mask and then be ready to drop the tone back and up for the high note.

it's a tricky song, but it goes over so well doesn't it?

Not really. Pretty much all of their hit songs (for instance, Don't Stop Believing) are mixed voice (more head than anything -- it goes up to B4 and C#5 in mixed/head voice in places, and really the only challenge is deciding between trying to sing the tonic E4 in the same voice which is not usually powerful compared to the higher mixed voice tones OR using chest voice for the E4 which doesn't sound exactly correct and might get a bit hairy besides). It's not like Perry's got a freakish chest voice or anything.

Out of my favorite songs:

Linkin Park - New Divide http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysSxxIqKNN0
Great F4 Practice, good G4, Ab4 practice with a few Bb4's in choruses

Maroon 5 - One More Night http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysSxxIqKNN0
Excellent F4 Practice... the yoo-oo-oo-oo thing in the beginning and scattered throughout the song up to C5 might be a neat thing to practice mixed voice on

Ten Years - Beautiful http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6iQpkkWZm0
E4 heavily stressed if it's an issue for you... for me, it's not, but... the later choruses and especially the bridge have a decent string of G#4's with a few A4's mixed in at the bridge. You'll be spending the whole bridge in the mid to upper passagio.

Linkin Park - Numb http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZQrMqdv54I
Excellent F#4 practice... It's a rough one because there are only a couple patches that are low enough to allow your cords to relax. The chorus contains a few G#4's but the bridge is pretty darn hard, your vocal cords will not have had rest and you'll be faced with a stretch of G#4's and A4s, and you have to sustain the G#4's for pretty long.

It's only difficult if you struggle with F#4... if it's not a big issue then you only have to worry about the A4 in the chorus

Re: Passasgio workout songs

I'm resurrecting this thread to post a true double whammy challenge to any of you guys who want a true workout.
Not only does this whole song live and breath smack dab inside and all over the passagio, but it requires intensity, conviction and some belting to do the song justice.

Try at your own risk... I promise that if you do it right, you'll be very proud of yourself and exhausted for sure.
Bob, this one's definitely for you! ;)

Re: Passasgio workout songs

yeah, that is a tough one alright.

i was playing around with this song, and it ended up being tougher than i had thought it would be...especially if you want to really lean in on it.

you just sit between the d and the f sharp. but gearing down for the softer spots is tricky too.

anybody do this?

it actually good exercise.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

This is a true story.  I was driving down the road listening to Jailhouse rock and trying to sing along with it. I kept trying different things to sing the notes in FULL voice. Somehow or other the sound or voice or breath, slipped behind my soft palet. The voice that came out was Elmo/Bart simpson.
    I never figured out how to sing Jailhouse Rock like ELVIS but I can now speak like Elmo and Bart Simpson. Which is pretty cool to me. I can hit those notes pretty solid with Elmo voice so I should also be able to sing it clean.
    If anyone has suggestions on what went wrong I would be very grateful for input.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

Most of Meat Loaf's songs, but especially this one:



It kills me. It highlights some of my biggest vocal weaknesses currently. The part "and i'm gonna need somebody to make me feel like you do" etc. is one of the trickest phrases I've encountered vocally. You have to sing it with power, but still keep it light enough to get to the Bb4, meanwhile maintaining a smooth late bridge on a closed ee vowel (or modify but not too much), raising the intensity slightly on the higher notes, and maintaining twang...this song is hell for a baritone! But I'm determined to eventually be able to sing this at an excellent level and perform it. It's on my bucket list. My life will be a large portion more complete when I can just deliver a great heartfelt performance of this epic song...

Hey Owen if you have to think about all those things when you sing (not practice vocalises) you will constantly keep having a hard time with those songs or phrases. Worry about all that stuff during your warmup and practice. When you are ready to sing just sing and let the warmup you did set you up to sing.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

speaking of passaggio killers, they did a round of kamikaze karaoke last night and i got this one.

never really did it before, but again it ended up being a little tougher than i thought.

to ease up on the pressure buildup, i decided to shoot it into the mask and that made things a little easier.

have you folks done it? how does it feel for you?.......great song

I think it's the only way anyone can do this song, especially if trying to match the clean tone of Steve Miller (who is from Dallas. What is it with singers and Texas?! :cool: )

When I was twelve my older brothers were both in bands as singers. The "Manager" (the mother of one of the band mates) of one of those bands wanted to hear I f I could sing.When I stepped up to the microphone the band started playing "Hotter than Hell" from KISS. I choked. I did not know the song and I wasn't allowed to say HELL. So they decided to let me try "Keep on Rockin' Me" in the original key. You can guess what happened. Beginning puberty trying to sing "Rockin' Me". That was the moment that shook my confidence and ruined my singing career.
    Oh Well, 38 years later and now I might be able to sing this song without blowing it.

If you notice on live versions of Original singer he changes the melody to evade the ultra high notes. He still uses the original key and it is still very hard to sing.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

yeah, i noticed on these real tough songs, or certain acts, you saw very little true live performances around the time they released.

i think the greedy record company gurus didn't want to risk a bad note.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

A couple of songs I love to practice:



Not sure if he spends a lot of time in passagio, but in the first verse where he sings "...beyond belief, a new metropolis..." he goes into a hard mix, right? It's something I've tried to incorporate into my training, and it's a lot different than..



I got this song from Jaime Vendera's book, and I think Sahaj is a great singer. His Sting covers don't surprise me, he sounds and sings exactly like Sting'd probably do if he sang heavier stuff.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

Here's what appears to be a harmless little pop ballad, but in reality requires some surgical precision to get through. Notice that the singer doesn't always get it completely right and has tendency to go slightly breathy at the passasgio. It also modulates a full step up for the final chorus. Have fun!

Re: Passasgio workout songs

C'mon guys, don't be lazy, add more songs to this thread. This thread should be the ultimate database for passagio training songs.

Here's a true classic that will test you HARD. you either know what you're doing or you'll suffer and scream this one.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

One of my favorites from the Boss. And I agree, it's a song that requires you to pay attention since it crosses parts of 3 octaves with most it bordering right on that 4th octave passagio area. Add to that if you are trying to sing like Bruce. Even though he's from New Jersey, he sounds like a hick when he sings. Dense lyrics requiring spot-on articulation. Big sweeping chorus that will show any weakness you have.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

Here's one that makes me watch the second passagio but it is a good exercise choice that stresses top-down control.
