Stairway to Voice Acting

So this is a bit of a different upload. It's definitely not meant to be taken seriously.
There's no need to worry that my account has evolved into a more song oriented direction either; I'm working on a ton of different projects at the moment.
But in the meanwhile, I wanted to upload something silly.

Yesterday (or today?) at about 8 am (before I went to sleep), I took about half an hour of my time time to think about different voices I could try to produce with my vocal chords, and how I could implement them in a track. I learned that it's actually a lot more difficult to maintain a voice when you are singing, so a lot of the voices are cracking/inconsistent at points.

I also figured that this might be a good opportunity to test out/show my vocal range, for no specific reason. But I think I might actually do a real voice acting demo reel sometime in the future, but with a more professional quality to it.
I didn't try to mimic anyone specific when singing either, so it's not like you will recognize any of the voices, which btw are:

1. Pretty much my normal voice.

2. A super nasal voice.

3. An octave lower than the first voice, no specific accent, but not my own accent either.

4. An octave higher than the first voice.

5. Same octave, but is probably the second weirdest voice among all of these.

6. Older man with a lisp and weird pronunciation.

7. Toneless voice that is very unheathly for my throat.

8. The weirdest voice on this list. I didn't manage to sing this that well, as I had already actively destroyed my vocal chords for half an hour. Even better, my screen went black and I lost sight of the lyrics for a few seconds, so the first seconds I'm pretty much just singing weird noises XD

This was surprisingly fun. No need to worry about my throat; I very rarely abuse it like this.

As some of the voices are pretty out there, I'll post the lyrics as well (I really should've come up with my own lyrics, but that'd take too much effort for such a silly project.)

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.

In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.

There's a feeling I get when I look throoo (to) the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.

In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.

And it's whispered that soon, if we all call the tune,
Then the piper will lead us to reason.

Myanhden njuur daiwill daan, for the skjuur stan la-aam
And the forests will echo with laughter.

*cough, sniff, "Yup."*

Well then. try enjoying this weird night/morning experiment.

P.S. If you listen to the piano playing, you will notice that I got totally rhythmically lost here and there. Turns out I'm not actually that good at playing the piano while trying to sing and voice act at the same time.
