How far can you get with this video? Vox voiceover girl is the most annoying croaky voice you will ever hear

The video sounded interesting. It’s about how four iconic notes appear in movie after movie, and it was originally penned as a Gregorian chant.

First I saw that it was a Vox video – not good. But, I persisted.

Huge mistake. The voiceover girl has one of the most annoying voices I have ever heard, and she’s been hired as a professional!

What a world.

  1. You’re complaining about her when you have Waters, Pelosi, Warren, Harris and Hillary. I didn’t think she sounded that horrible just not as polished as you would expect for the task.

  2. She’s horrible. Unprofessional. Croaky and Kim Kardashian.

    Different Tim, you didn’t see the other posts? In this one, we get to hate on VOX.
    Variety.

  3. Vocal fry is one of the most annoying human affectations known to man.

    It is not natural, it is cultivated. The most annoying aspect is that these bubbleheaded bitches aspire to this sound because they think it is attractive and sounds intelligent.

    It’s neither.

    The irony here is that Vox means voice, and they hire this nails on a blackboard to be the Vox of the video.

  4. WDS. LMAO! Ok some of that was static, but look. If someone is going to be teaching you to not hit the ground as you fly, they better sound clear and not trail off as if they fell asleep.
    Edit: OK no, as I went further into the video, adjusting the volume and stuff, that wasn’t static. That was all her. lolol

  5. Well…where to start. It isn’t the first four notes. It is 7 notes. The musical phrase. There are also visuals in the piece which didn’t match the music in question. Overall, a slovenly produced bit of trivia. Other outlets have covered this topic much better.

  6. Off the announcer rant and onto the subject of the video.

    I found this fascinating. Though I love music, I have ZERO knowledge of the art. I never took a lesson in my life and only understand “what I like” not the intricacies and depth of the art and/or artists who create.

    All that said, it was fun to learn about these notes and how iconic they are in so much of the music we are all familiar with.

  7. Jewel – Thanks!
    Damn, VOX totally ripped them off. 😀
    You can hear exit music all through documentaries of the Black Death.
    It shows up in horrific murder docs, even on the History channel sometimes.

  8. Should IOTW ever makes videos perhaps a better voice could be found….

    I must say, though, that is not as annoying as the computer generated voice you find in some videos.

  9. Typical of millennials. This woman either ends a statement with an upswing so it sounds like a question, or trails off into a guttural mumble. Although the question is meant to get your attention, both that inflection and the guttural ending is a sign of unsurety although the person would deny it. I surmise that this type of speaker on some level knows they’re full of bullshit but doesn’t know, in fact, what reality is. This is just one of many behavior modifications caused by the institution known as “higher education”.

  10. I didn’t find it that bad.

    Worst vocal fry I’ve ever heard is Canada’s “Climate Barbie” Catherine McKenna (minister of the environment & Climate change).

    With a job title like that you can just imagine the shit she talks as she gargles with rocks in her throat.

  11. Youngest niece has picked up the nasty fry habit. I am conflicted between maintaining my composure and leading by example by not shuddering when I hear it, and shaking her by the shoulders hissing “STOP THAT!”

  12. MJA, BFH, I would never lie to you guys. I follow Josh’s channel and he has awesome videos but I could barely get through this one despite the beautiful scenery. BTW, even cheap headsets don’t sound that bad, I know ’cause I got a pair LOL

    Thanks BFH, even a blind hog finds an acorn once in awhile…

  15. It’s like that woman on the phone in the “Dinovite” radio spot who spells it out ” dee ey en oh vee ey tee ee, dat cahm” ………fingers across the chalkboard!

  16. Like “Kcir” I didn’t find it that bad.
    Getting back to the subject…
    What was it?
    The voice or the subject of the video?

    Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. Requiescat in pace.
    Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.

    Holy crap! Never thought I’d be using that one again.

    Before giving religion up for Lent (Almost a sixty year fast to this point)…
    Thinking back on it, one of the few times you felt maybe you were in the right place was when you were doing “Gregorian Chant.”

    Nope, can’t do the edit…

  17. There was no worse vocal fry than CBF— that triple chinned middle aged overweight liar, trying to sound like a traumatized 15 year old ingenue in order to destroy Brett Kavanaugh.

    This Vox voice wasn’t so bad and the content was interesting.

  18. Any vocal fry curls my hair because it’s just lazy speech. I hate lazy speech. If you don’t care enough about putting any effort into speaking, then why do I need to put any effort into listening to you?

    Yes, there are degrees of lazy speech, so a little bit I can handle. But don’t push it.

    I used to watch a Fox News anchor who didn’t use vocal fry, but she couldn’t bother to take 1/4th of a second to actually pronounce the word “senator”. It always came out “senter” (sounded like “center”). And “president” became “presdent”. Of course, those are just two words of MANY that she mangled. I stopped watching her.

    Yeah, I’m picky. It shouldn’t matter that much. I’ll try to be better. 😉

  19. Millenials aren’t the first to use sluggish, irritating juvenile speech patterns, but they have turned it into a cultural stigma like no other generation.
    Mainly because they are so spoiled, uneducated and slaves to technology. Therefore, millenials can’t be bothered with conventional, time honored effective ways of communicating.

    The voice fry is tiresome and annoying. The subject matter was very interesting, but could only stand 20 seconds of that narration.

  20. When young women speak to me with vocal fry or uptalking, I mention it to them and let them know it’s very annoying to me and others. I don’t care if they’re offended because, well, I just don’t. If they get upset, I simply walk away.

  21. So what this is saying. That if I ever put these note together, i am going to the dark side.
    Ok let’s play this game.
    Whether I am playing the PENTATONIC, OR THE CHROMATIC, OR THE BLUES SCALE or the DIATONC scales.
    I am playing to the dark side.
    Well damn.
    I am sure I can find this combination of notes in every song that STEVIE RAYE, AND B.B KING ,AND ELVIS , AND CHOPIN, AND CROSBY STILL AND NASH, AND ROY ORBISN, AND DOLLY, AND MERL, AND WILLIE, AND MOZART, AND BACH, AND JERRY JEFF AND RAY WYLEY, AND WALT WILKINS, AND THE MASTER OF THE TELECASTER.
    MR. BILL KIRCHEN.
    SO SHUT THE FUCKUP .
    Dear god, the stupidity of this is astounding.

    That is all

  22. Had no idea what ‘vocal fry’ meant. I just know an annoying asshole when I meet them, some times by their voice, could be clothing, could be whatever.

    Usually I let them open their mouth and let them decide.

    There are more of them out there, I think, than you all realize.

  23. Now I know what to call that annoying speech pattern. Thank you.

    If you want to listen to really hilarious parody of vocal fry, go on Netflix to The Windsors Show. The two young ladies whose characters play Princess Fergie & Prince Andrew’s daughters do a laugh out loud patois that overcomes my hatred of Vocal Fry.
