    Maybe you could make two lists: 1. harmony between two singers and 2. harmony between more than two singers. Then you could have two great lists.

    The Beatles had so many great harmonic recordings, including "Drive My Car," "If I Fell," "Yes, It Is," "Help!", "Girl," "Here, There, and Everywhere,"....

    Suite: Judy Blue Eyes and California Dreaming. Yup

  • Killer Queen
    Killer Queen 2 days ago

    Good Vibrations truly is incredible but I do disagree with some on the list. The order should be different in some ways.

  • Killer Queen
    Killer Queen 2 days ago

    But at the opening of Bohemian Rhapsody that was all Freddie. Of course when the operatic section comes in the band united in harmonies. But I disagree and say that Somebody To Love has much more complex harmonies.

  • Can You K'Not?
    Can You K'Not? 2 days ago

    Okay so there is a song called So it Goes from a band called Mariana's Trench. Imagine Because, except it's modernized and the harmonies are so much clearer and better. NOT TAKING ANYTHING AWAY FROM THE BEATLES THEY ARE THE BEATLES. But, that song just got me thinking of the other one.

    No Bob Dylan?

  • Rebecca Maracle

    Where Evil Grows by the Poppy Family must have just been too good for the list.

    The point is that "Because" could be replaced by at LEAST 30 or 40 different Beatles songs. Nobody else comes close

    I wish 'Take a Chance on Me' by ABBA was included.

    Barbara Ann in my opinion is much better than good vibrations when in the category of Harmony.

    This was a really cool focus. I have to agree that omitting the Begees is a big misstep.

  • reginaldperiwinkle
    reginaldperiwinkle 7 days ago +1

    For the Beatles, a straight Lennon-McCartney harmony would have been better. They were perfect just the two of them. The harmonies on Don't Let me Down, Ballad of John and Yoko, or We Can Work it Out are magic -- incomparable.

    • AJ Rojas
      AJ Rojas 6 days ago

      I totally overlooked we can work it out! Such an amazing harmony

  • wind7sailor
    wind7sailor 7 days ago

    too many great songs for just a top ten list. Maybe try a top 25, 50 or 100 next time

  • Tim Kramar

    Can't help but think about Amy; Pure Prairie League. And what's Boston doing in there? Brad Delp harmonizing with himself?

  • Sterling Crockett
    Sterling Crockett 8 days ago

    There was a movie once called Lady and the Tramp in which two Siamese cats harmonized with each other. Their degree of perfection was such that people said it sounded as if they sang with one voice. 😺😺😺

  • Katie Brookes

    Four Seasons In One Day by Crowded House. Neil and Tim Finnis singing anything together is amazing

  • Allen Jaffe

  • Jeremy Nelson

    God Only Knows is objectively a better number 1. Either way The Beach Boy's are in the right place.

  • Tom CONWAY

    This is strictly YOUR TASTE mate, ...... you left out some REALLY, REALLY, great ONES , .....
    So, NOT even close to the TOP 10

    GUCKY BOY 10 days ago +1

    Good list, but The Kinks or Pink Floyd should have been included

  • Margalus
    Margalus 10 days ago +1

    After watching this, I don't think I could make a video like this. There are too many great harmonies left out of this list, but maybe only 1 that I would remove...

    Tom Jones? "it's good to touch

  • JDSly1
    JDSly1 11 days ago

    Great picks. I would have liked to have seen something by Pink Floyd on this list, though. My two favorites are the David Gilmour/Rick Wright harmonizing on "Time" and the David Gilmour/Roger Waters harmonizing on "Comfortably Numb".

  • juskym

    Um. How about anything sung by The Bee Gees?

  • ryan49er1

    Good countdown...You could do a top 500 and you still have someone upset you left out a band.

  • Tracy McMillan
    Tracy McMillan 11 days ago +1

    Yeah there could have been more songs on this list. They could have easily expanded it to 20 songs.But comparing 72 track Good Vibrations to one track Everly Bros doesn't seem right.
