This is How Michael Caine Speaks

So let’s get right down to it. Even Michael Caine can do Michael Caine. He knows what he sounds like, or at least what other people say he sounds like, and he can hit it pretty well. Now these guys in the clip do a fair impression but can’t seem to agree just who does it best. I think I’d still pick Michael Caine.

The man definitely had a different lilt to his voice in his younger years but of course who doesn’t. When you’re younger your voice is still fresh and still capable of hitting certain notes that become rusty and overused or misused with age. Michael Caine is a man that’s enjoyed his life and done a great deal throughout his career, but has also enjoyed luxury. Sometimes luxury can do a very big number on every aspect of your body, especially your voice.

As a favored music teacher of mine once said, “you only get one set of vocal cords, they can’t replace them and to do so would be far too difficult. It would no longer be the you that you remember if such a thing was possible.” She was right after all, your vocal cords cannot be replaced at this time but studies and research are underway to make such a thing. Even so, they would still not be the original equipment you were given when you were born and thus would not be the same.

Michael Caine’s voice has undergone some changes throughout his life thanks to a number of things that have gone on throughout his career, but he still has one of the most recognizable voices in the industry. The difference between then and now is age and the lifestyle he’s decided to live. While his voice has deepened and changed slightly in pitch it’s still much the same as it was when he first started out. Age is the greatest fact that affects any part of our bodies and it is the only one that we can never do enough to halt.

Keeping ourselves healthy and fit and in good condition is all well and good and can prolong a person’s life and health for a certain amount of time, but it won’t save everything forever. One day even the most beautiful voice in the world might start to croak like a bullfrog due to age. The most silken words ever spoke by an actor could become rasping, papery gasps that are hardly recognizable to anyone that knew the person. Age is the ultimate change that will affect everyone in due time. Those that fight it the hardest are often those that are affected in the most debilitating ways, sort of like a biological karma so to speak.

Michael Caine has, for all intents and purposes, never once tried to stop aging but has done so gracefully and with as much skill as anyone possibly can. In his most recent films and several before he’s never really stood on ceremony with his appearance and just come across as natural while playing to the camera and the crowd. No matter how his voice has sounded, it almost always sounds like he’s having a good time.
