Here is this thread, I made so I could edit it. Enjoy.

Criteria:
"The performances are ranked this way: the technical difficulty, phrasing (although subjective, there are instances where one performance clearly exceeds another in this regard), dynamics, variation, versatlity shown in a song, how good singers tone is in the song compared to his normal tone and if needed, emotion put into the song and how much of the total singers ability is shown."

Each singer has up to a list of ten studio performances and five live performances.

I like that list: But There's two songs that I found better versions of!

Save Me (Newcastle 1st)
Who Wants To Live Forever (2nd Leiden)

WWTLF (6/12/1986)

I don't know what rank they are on the list, but they could replace the versions up right now!

Listening in a couple of minutes... I meant how would you rank all the performances I gave here, from no.1 to no. 5?

I believe Bohemian Rhapsody should be number one for Freddie Mercury

whats so great about that beside the falsetto wails.....I'd say HCYDCMA and Kiss both need more control to perform.......Kiss shows off that falsetto so well....such a great ending....

"Darling Nikki" is one of his best performances! Great 'erotic' ( :lol: ) tone going there and the falsetto screams are AWESOME! The ending is also great, backplayed stuff with great singing. :wink:

Another ones which really need to be there are "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" (Showcases awesome falsetto, great low-register- and middle-register singing) and "The Beautiful Ones" (One of his best performances, showcases much of his skills!)

We could start doing this, Prince is awesome. :wink:


Wanted, update the Patton list before it gets flooded again! :lol:

About the Prince list, I agree that The Most Beautiful Girl In The World needs to be there... :tiphat:
