Joni Mitchell’s final line in “Big Yellow Taxi” shoes off her chops, stretching her range from quite high to quite low.
I’m pretty sure, though, the laughter (which came across to me as contrived, forced) was a separate track. (more of a novelty one, this example)
Brian Wilson gets absolutely stratospheric with the sublime title lyric from God Only Knows.
Patsy Klein’s opening line in Crazy for some reason always ‘gets me’.
Doesn’t matter what genre. Curious to hear operatic contributions.
