Polyphonic Spree


The votes are in.

Last week, inspired by a suggestion from f-lawless and with a €50 Golden Discs voucher on offer, I asked you to name your favourite song with strong vocal harmonies.

You answered in your dozens.

But there could be only one winner:

Third Place:

Over And Done With by The Proclaimers

Jasper writes:

“Probably not one of the better known songs on the list, but was always turned up to 11 for a sing-song at a session in years gone by.”


White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes

Capernosity & Function writes:

“For the wintry day that’s in it. If medieval monks were put in a recording studio this is what they would produce. A wonderful evocation of Gregorian chant. Knocks me out every time I hear it.”


Mexico by The Staves

Andy Pipkin writes:

“You could pick absolutely anything by these three sisters, just unreal vocals and sublime harmonies!! Enjoy!”

Nick says: Well done, Andy and thanks all.

    A great by-product of these competitions is going away and listening to an artist that you haven’t heard before. I had not heard The Staves before last Friday. I have listened to The Staves since last Friday and now I like The Staves. Hooray!

    Congratulation Andy! Very much a worthy winner, and you had some other great entries too.

    Also, I was during the week as I sort through my years of hoarded papers and various junk thoroughly enjoying the Spotify playlist your did of 2020 winners – Desert Island Golden Discs. A very generous act on your part, and also an indication of the great taste in music there is amongst the ‘Sheeters :-)
