OT: the voice of many dance/pop singers

Many voices of new dance/pop songs with a highly artificial synth rythm do also have a very manipulated voice, it seems. It`s like they`re told by some mad professors to sing like at the verge of orgasm, especially women. -Some other of you who have heard this?

with headphones on singing along to the record they're playing ……

That is very true. Now people sing so high, mainly females. Never in history have been so many great voices and singers with such a high pitch.
I suspect this is because the autotune thing

It’s not normal. Very strange. Some singers sound like they are straining out of a bubble pipe. Maybe I’m gettin’ old.

I find many vocals (I should clarify, Top of The Pops types) these days to be unnatural sounding. Now this is when casually driving with the car radio on for a 5 minute trip to get groceries or something. Maroon 5 come to mind.

Nowadays I plug in my iPod. For the longer rides. Nothing like one’s own self made playlists to offset.

Too much autotune

There is the whole artificial pitch control, auto-tune, but you're right - it is also in the interpretations and phrasings, which can't be created all that much synthetically.
But in every era there are styles of vocalizing that rule; that sometimes seem to fundamental that you wonder "where did all those guys come from all the sudden?". But it is just a style thing. I mean - in the 80's literally all UK bands were whining like Morrissey, Spandau, Howard Jones.
In 90's everyone was Eddie Vedder. I could n't tell Vedder from Weiland from Lanegan etc. But it's all the same guys. The producers sitting in there going "give it more growl, give it more twang, give it more existential pain".
And of course "give it more sex".

Yeah, it`s always those people in the background that become audible in the end product. The whole business stinks, imo.
