Boyz 2 Men. You may think I'm kidding, but those guys can harmonize like its nobody's business. They did a cover of "yesterday." Its pretty legit.

I've know fallen into a Beech Boys phase! Thanks! :D

aterrell, it's Boy II Men, not 2. Just thought I'd let you know. :)

I'd also recommend them. If not, you should check out some classical stuff. Eric Whittacre - Lux Aurumque. Blows me away every time I hear it.

Depends on what style you're into, too.

"Ghost In The Shell - Inner Universe" is an awesome song to sing to, though it doesn't have loads of harmonies, I challenge you to create your own harmonies to this song.

Its part of the internet communities Afro isnt it? Nothing is permanent.

for vocal harmonies, try this: The Ravens' - Count Every Star

one of my all time favorites is The Mamas and the Papas-Somebody Groovy

Cheers!

Yeah, some of the old 40s-50s bands are good for harmonies.

Skold, you say that, yet don't name any.

Quite funny how we're listing a bunch of stuff, and we have had no feedback from hippie cune if this is his type of harmonies or not.

What I personally find more entertaining, is to make the harmonies myself, it's also a good way to challenge your ear and theory.
