Top 10 Songs with Best Backing Vocalszxm Top 10 songs with best backing vocals. I made this list according to my taste. Please add what you think is best.
The Top Ten
Couldn't leave Queen. Probably the band with best backing vocals. - zxm
I think, that "Somebody to love" is better in backing vocals, but didn't find in the list.
Do backing vocals provided by the lead singer count? - Metal_Treasure
Its actually choir. But whatever It could be also considered as backing vocals. - zxm
The backing vocals or the co-lead vocals is mainly provided by Roger Taylor. It's a very good match with Freddie Mercury's Lead vocals.
"(You don't waste no time at all)
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
(It comes to you as to us all)
We are just waiting
For the hammer to fall" - zxm
Because the author of this list said he accepts backing vocals provided by the lead singer - this is a song with multi-layered (aka multi-tracking, overdubbed) vocals of the lead singer - Metal_Treasure
I would add it anyway. But I already added two songs of Queen initially. But yes, this song has very good backing vocals. - zxm
Nice to see 3 Queen songs in the top ten.
Four singers capable of taking the lead. David Crosby virtually invented the technique of "High Harmony" backup singing.
Many Blind Guardian songs are with backing vocals by Hansi Kürsch - currently he's the most prominent user of the vocal technique used by Freddie in Bohemian Rhapsody.
In this song Hansi created a huge choir effect by recording many overlapping vocal harmonies as backing vocals. Yes guys, he's the only singer in this song but you hear a choir. Brilliant. - Metal_Treasure
