Songs With the Most Beautiful Harmonies

This list is rather biased toward my favourite groups, but... my favourites usually have beautiful harmonies. Please check out the companion lists: Songs With the Most Beautiful Lyrics and Songs With the Most Beautiful Melodies.

The Top TenXW

1Because - The Beatles

Inspired by Yoko Ono playing Beethoven's "Moonlight" Sonata backwards. If she'd only stuck to that... - PetSounds

2In My Room - The Beach Boys

Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson performed In My Room for their parents a cappella shortly after writing it. Their mother was moved to tears. I just wish I'd been a fly on the wall... - PetSounds

3Mrs. Robinson - Simon and Garfunkel
4A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square - The Four Freshmen

My favourite version of this lovely song. - PetSounds

5God Only Knows - The Beach Boys

It's nearly impossible to name a song with the absolute best harmony as it's all subjective, but when I saw this on the list I had to vote for it. A fantastically beautiful song. - stellaryarn

6Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy - The Andrews Sisters

The ladies of beautiful and cheeky harmonies. I adore this song; uplifting, cheeky and indeed sung in perfect harmony. And without a doubt, my favourite Andrews Sisters song. - Britgirl

7Lyin' Eyes - The Eagles
8The Sound of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel

"The words of the prophets are written on the subway wall..." - PetSounds

9Monday, Monday - The Mamas & the Papas
10I Get Around - The Beach Boys

The Contenders

11Carry On - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
12Cherish - The Association
13Aquarius - The 5th Dimension
14What Am I Doing Here? - Blue Rodeo

I consider Blue Rodeo a Canadian version of the Eagles. Their harmonies are almost as good. - PetSounds

15Ventura Highway - America
16Turn! Turn! Turn! - The Byrds
17The Chain - Fleetwood Mac
18Nowhere Man - The Beatles
19Leaving On a Jet Plane - Peter, Paul & Mary
