Get Happy Sung by Judy Garland: Head Voice & Chest Voice 50’s Style

 Get Happy Sung by Judy Garland:

Head Voice & Chest Voice 50’s Style

For this series, we’ll be looking at hearing chest voice and head voice throughout songs from each era, and then throughout different genres. For this example song, we’ll take “Get Happy” sung by Judy Garland and listen for the differences as she moves between chest voice and head voice.
Below I will put the words that Judy Garland sung quite clearly in chest voice in bold font, and head voice underlined. I will only point out when she is singing most noticeably in chest voice and head voice so it is the easiest to hear.

Forget your troubles
Come on get happy
You better chase all you cares away-y
Shout hallelujah
Come on get happy
Get ready for the judgment day
The sun is shining
Come on get happy
The lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout hallelujah
Come on get happy
We’re going to the promised land
We’re heading across the river
Wash your sins away in the tide
It’s all so peaceful on the other side
Forget your troubles

You better chase all your cares away-y
Shout hallelujah
Come on get happy
Get ready for the judgment day
