Because I like to make lead lines that are reminiscent of a person singing, I often listen explicitly to the vocal melodies in songs, and I thought I'd ask people what some of their favorites were.

I really like the chorus to "Born" by Nevermore

I have trained a live tarantula to calm and sit on my guitar due to the awesome powers of my rocking. When I am not playing it angrily bounces about my room hitting everything that isn't me.

A Day in the Life - Beatles is pretty good and bluesy. I especially like the version in the Across the Universe movie. Beatles in general are a very melodic band when it comes to vocals.

Also, my favorite is Queen's Teo Torriatte.

Dear Prudence...

such a simple song (kind of) but it's so effective.

Especially the part where John goes

"Greet the brand new dayyyyheyyyyyy!!! AHHHH-
the sun is up,
the sky is blue,
it's beautiful and so are you,
dear Prudence,
won't you come out to play?"


EDIT- Actually, now that I think of it, I'd have to take Svefn-g-englar by Sigur Ros over Dear Prudence. That song gives me such chills it's insane. I can travel to ethereal places during that song.

"Dirt" by the Stooges has a great vocal groove.
and Bowie's "Width of a Circle" doesnt really have a really standout structure or anything, but something about how he pronounces certain lines really sticks in my head.
"Miss X" MC5

I find the whole period between 1957-1970 to be the golden age of vocals in pop music history. I grew up listening to oldies on the radio. From Buddy Holly, Beatles, Beach Boys, Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, Supremes, Temptations, Coasters, Drifters, Ricky Nelson.

Ah Ha - Take On Me (wow, that voice carries)
Cranberries - Linger (intro is godly)
Porcupine Tree - Lazarus "follow me down to the valley below, you know, moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul"
Beatles - Let It Be
Beatles - Hey Jude
Raconteurs - Level (dueting is uber at the end)
Racontuers - Together
Jeff Buckley Hallelujah (no comment)
Buddy Holly - Words Of Love

There are two Jimi Hendrix songs that have these little vocal "licks" that give me chills.

One is "Once I had a Woman" and the other is "Georgia Blues" even though Hendrix doesn't sing that last one. And the Sax solo in that song is just amazing.
