Songs with damn fine backing vocals...

Post the songs that are especially good because of their distinctive/memorable/brilliant backing vocals.

Simple enough premise, and there's plenty of examples that I can think of.

I'll kick it off with this one...

Cracking idea for a thread.

I can think of loads but i will start with a backing not many would think about. Fair enough Steve Jones only shouts "reason" in a yobbish football style a few times in the song, bridge section and just after the guitar solo, but its class as fuck backing vocals.

Well this thread of mine certainly died a fucking death...!

Below is a squirt of adrenaline for this rotting corpse of a topic.

Freddie might have been the front of house, but this song would not have scored as big if it had relied on his talent alone...

Absolute must for electro fans..

She's called Sylvia Mason-James and when she arrives she takes over and makes the song.

From the incredible (on several levels) film "The Crying Game". One to see.

And if you ever wondered what happened to Cicero (if you're struggling to remember, think of that song "Love is Everywhere") - here he is with a different vocalist in June of this year performing that live. He still looks good :x

.. and if you do remember these you'll want to hear this.
