Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

I've never seen Justin Hawkins do it so I assume not.

Or Greg Pritchard for that matter.

no, it will hurt, and it won't work (i think), and if it would work, there's always falsetto which is less painfull and better...

No, but a Little punch might help. You might need to punch a little harder the first time though

Don't think so, but I seem to remember reading Justin Hawkins had some surgery on his vocal chords so he could really hit the high notes.

No, what you do is tape some pliers to your legs so that when you squeeze your legs together ...

Argh... the pain.


That is one of those mental images that is actually painful
#17
Nah dude, it's a misconception.
When you get hit in your balls you lose all of your breath and instantly jump into falsetto voice.
It doesn't make you ing higher.
Not that I've tried <.< >.>

Greg Pritchard for the win!

Matt Bellamy and Charlie Simpson manage to do it whilst playing guitars, so obviously no.

Do male singers really tap their testicles to reach higher notes?
Goodness, NO. Most just sing falsetto.
But those of us who sing full-voice in the higher ranges bind their testicles.
It's similar to oriental foot binding, in a way.

Maybe you're confused about castratos. They are castred pre-pubery so that they have a soprano type range for ever. You've probably heard this, but somehow got totally confused about it.

No, it's more effective to squeeze your legs together as hard as you can.

Greatest question i have ever heard....

good job buddy. Ok im just kidding. What you probably heard was related to something like this:

In 1599, Pope Clement VIII gave the ok for castrated young boy's to sing in the Church. This went on for the next 280 years or so until Pope Leo in 1878 finally stopped it. Two hundred and eighty years of castrating young boy's with the Pope and the Church giving approval for this barbaric procedure so the Church could have high pitched singers because women were not allowed to sing in the Church. The boy's were called the castrati and the Church sanctioned it.

Google" castrati "

If theres A high note in a song, the guitarist just walks up to the singer ,on stage, and kicks him in the man nuggets. The singer is then able to reach the high note.

Castration only works for high notes if testicles are removed before the onset of puberty, preventing the voice from breaking.
