I've been on kind of a kick with these in a playlist recently.
I don’t know who sings it but there’s a male harmony vocal I’ve always liked on the chorus of Time after Time by Cyndi Lauper.
David Crosby sings a great low harmony line on the choruses and last verse of Phil Collins’ Another Day in Paradise.
Crosby & Nash also sing good on Dave Gilmour’s On an Island.
Everybody wants to be a Pip. Woo-woo!
Dan Hicks - I Scare Myself
Leonard Cohen - The Future (is now)
Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart by the Coasters. Bliss. And you get a King Curtis sax solo.
Amy Winehouse - Me and Mr. Jones
The Turtles, whether by themselves, as Flo and Eddy or as Flo and Eddy singing with Zappa...The Turtles:
Flo and Eddie's back up on Springsteen's Hungry Heart,
Makes that song totally soar!
Just saw your post after posting my Flo and Eddie post ha!!
Lot's of Beatles stuff...
"Because" came first to my mind.
Lot's of Beach Boys...
"Surf's Up" (the song) came first to my mind. But the whole "California Saga" is impressive.
Brian Wilson was/is a master of voices in harmony.
Big Daddy's Vito and the Salutations-tinged version of Memory:
Oh god yes, that song is amazing.
Every time I hear that song I imagine him singing "I'm so vain, that's right I think this song is about me...."
Some of my favorites that haven't been mentioned yet:
The Beatles, You Never Give Me Your Money, particularly the bit starting at 1:48 where you have the chiming guitar in one ear, the fuzz guitar in the other ear, and the boys singing "Aaaaaaaaa" over the top of it all. Glorious.
Any R.E.M. song with Mike Mills singing countermelody, like Fall On Me.
And Robert Plant of all people sang some surprisingly nice harmony vocals on the record he made with Alison Krauss.
How about the lead singer on backup?
Pink Floyd, the great gig in the sky is fabulous. I still always happy to listen to it even after all those years.
Neil Young and CH, with the 'Saddlebags' - Linda Ronstadt and Nicolette Larson
This song still moves me after 60 years. The harmony is not technically great, but it is soulful enough that it works.
Echo & The Bunnymen - Silver
These two do a great job of backing each other.
