Apologies if we have this thread already. This is a thread about songs you like that are sung by someone in the band other than the lead singer. Not intended for bands like Beatles, Sonic Youth, etc., but anomalous instances of someone else stepping up to take the mic. Could make a fun Spotify playlist if anyone is so inclined to make it.

I'll start with the Band of Horses song "Older," which is sung by their pedal steel player Ryan Monroe. This is probably one of my 3-4 favorite BOH songs, and the first one I really fell in love with.

One of my first thoughts was "Evening Kitchen" from the same album, but sung by Tyler

The best Beach Boys song is Surf’s Up, which sees lead singer Mike Love taking a back seat to Brian and Carl Wilson, and sometime Beach Boy (and Wilson cousin) Al Jardine.

Not sure if this counts because I hate to relegate him to "Other Guy" status, but all the Clash songs that Mick Jones sings lead are the best.

I love the few Smashing Pumpkins songs that are sung by James Iha. He has a voice like a cartoon frog but it has a certain charm.

"The Boy" is a sweet companion to "1979"



And "Take Me Down" is one of my favorite Melon Collie tunes; I wince at every single-disc retrack of the album that leaves it out

Keith Richards songs are always my favorite in pretty much every Stones album.

Also, Heaven Beside You from AIC.

Not the whole song, but I always loved the part of "Get Up, Stand Up" that Peter Tosh sings
