Ladies and gentleman, the award for Single Most Annoying Falsetto in Pop Music History goes to…Tiny Tim! Seriously, this guy has to be the absolute worst Easy Listening musician of all time…even the Starland Vocal Band were more capable than this. Tiny Tim is regarded as little more than a joke these days, but that’s actually giving him too much credit. I have literally never heard a worse singing voice come out of someone who supposedly sings for a living. Granted, the song itself, a hopelessly hackneyed piece of fifth-rate Tin Pan Alley leftovers, doesn’t help, but if you give this idiot a good song, the results are actually even worse (listen to his horrific butchering of Sonny and Cher’s “I Got You Babe” if you don’t believe me).
Verdict: Beyond horrific.
