    One playlist of mine is devoted to songs that have great vocal harmonization. Songs when the group, or vocalist are accompanying each other in different harmonies.

    I'm looking to expand my collection, Most of what I have are oldies. Anyone have more recent songs that fit the category? Or just post your favorites.

    There's so many...the beatles, stones, mamas and pappas, joni mitchell, KD Lang, the eagles, etc. but I want more current,

    Holiday songs are encouraged too.

    This mid 80's Shriekback song has some of the strangest, high pitched harmony but is still a great song. The harmonizing was kind of a trick to cover up their vocal limitations, but it made for entertaining songs.

    OK, it's really Blue Ridge Mountains but there isn't a video for it.

    on a Mac (i assume it's the same for Windows) you just control-click on the video in YouTube... it will offer you the option of copying the 'embed html'. then you just paste it in the forum window.

    You do the same thing you did to paste the url here, but choose the embed option instead. It's the box below the url box. Some videos have embedding disabled, however, but you might be able to find the video on another site like yahoo or vimeo. Sometimes even the band's/performer's own site will allow embedding.

    Stevie Wonder & Take 6 - "O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion"
