    I must be tone deaf , because I'm not hearing this clear falsetto that everyone is talking about. I even listened over and over...

    LTL, you don't hear a falsetto during the Ella Jean parts?

    Well PM - we'll just have to take down your first choice in the next round.

    And ltl - what I refer to as the falsetto in Ella Jean is the chorus. As far as Compassion, what sounds falsetto to me is when he actually sings the word "Compassion". I'm just not that fond of the way Tim changes the pitch in his voice in either case.

    Per Websters: 1 : an artificially high voice; especially : an artificially produced singing voice that overlaps and extends above the range of the full voice especially of a tenor.

    But his voice goes high a lot/most of the time. I hear it in songs like Fast Company with Don & Glenn. I guess I just don't think of Timothy as falsetto. I just listened again and it just sounds "like Timothy"-know what I mean?

    TBF, that's how "I" feel. I don't think Tim is changing his voice at all, he just sings high... always has. I'll give them another listen, as I'm about to get into the car now.

    Technically, it may not be an actual falsetto, and I'm certainly not the one to decide since I know absolutely nothing about music, but I describe the unusually high pitched singing that anyone does as falsetto. Right or wrong, I don't really care for it.

    As far as Ella Jean and Compassion, those falsetto parts are the parts I dislike about each song. Otherwise, I really love Ella Jean. It just hits home with me personally, because my husband has to travel a lot for work.

    I do know what you mean, Willie. Tim does have a natural high-pitched voice. But in these cases, I call it falsetto because Tim raises the pitch of his voice in these particular lines significantly higher than it is in the rest of the song(s). But as Brooke said, whatever you want to call it, they are the lines that I like least in these songs.

    Well, IMO, he hits them high notes like they were nothing... so I'm okay w/how it sounds. I will agree I hear what you are talking about at the end of Ella Jean, but that is just about the time I end the song. I can do w/out the Ella,Ella Jean chanting. I still wouldn't call it falsetto for Tim, but I understand what you mean. As for Compassion... nope, don't hear it. Not even on that one word...
