    This is only 1.27 if you can spare the time to listen.

    Prog band Moon Safari can all sing so they do amazing harmonies. This short track is acapella and very nice indeed

    No video content, just sound, but Spock's Beard song June has lovely harmonies. I love this song.

    That’s really good. With an added bass harmony voice it would be superb.

    Eagles = Yes.
    Beach Boys = Yes.
    ABBA = Yes.

    But didn't it all start here ...


    The other instruments really are just the backing.  It's all about the vocals.
    None other than The Crickets (post Buddy Holly) backing the Everlys with the excellent Sonny Curtis on guitar. A great singer/songwriter and guitar player Sonny wrote the Everlys “Walk Right Back” and The Clash’s “I fought the law” among many other great songs. The Crickets were no slouches themselves when it came to harmonies.........

    Barbara Streisand and Celine Dion .................they have done a couple of songs together
    Female Vocalists don't come much better than these two.

    Their harmonies are a bit more subtle, but still worth a listen -Roscoe by Midlake:

    I remember Terry Wogan playing one of their duets on his radio programme. The song ended with them both singing their hearts out in a great crescendo. Then silence! After a while Terry said "is anybody hurt?" :-D

    find any song from "The jayhawks" hollywood townhall and "tomorrow the green grass", they sound great together, but try to listen to the Mark Olson vocal line, the Gary Louris line is normally the one you hear, but listen to Marks, the harmonies are so "odd" and so hard to do, I've tried, I don't know how he follows that vocal line with such complex two part arrangements that just don't follow the song - yet work amazingly well.

    The Aimee Mann album (she normally has nice harmonies anyway) "Mental illness has some lovely two part harmonies. 

    When you think of impressive, it's easy to think of multiple parts, but the ones that get me are the two part harmonies that sound big or clever.

    Glad you enjoyed. Difficult to recommend a starting point. Maybe her last album - Are We There. Or the one before - Tramp. She is a class act.
