singing falsetto in chest voice?

First, is falsetto different from head voice, and can it be done in chest voice?
I've been hearing songs where the singer will do a falsetto, but it sounds really chesty, and full.

Peace, Tony

    At KTVA, falsetto is considered to be head voice with little cord closure. In other words, a hooty, flutey version of head voice. Head voice is considered to be the notes above the secondo passaggio, but with enough cord closure that it does not have the airy tone. Instead it would have a more timbral tone, more similar to chest voice, but higher in pitch.

    Thanks Bob, That clears it up for me. The songs in particular I was refering to was two elo songs.

    Jeff Lynn acoustic - telephone Line
    Jeff Lynn acoustic - Evil Woman

    In case anybody wants to look them up to see what I was curious about.

    Peace, Tony
