Everyone is always talking about how Queen II has these great harmonies, and its true, only... Beach Boys do it lightyears better.

who else agrees? 8-)

It's not really saying a bad thing about Queen to say the Beach Boys did vocal harmonies better. But, try to find someone that does GUITAR harmonies better than Brian. :D

Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?

Well, Beach Boys was one of the inspirations leading to the music of Queen:

The Beach Boys also inspired John Wetton to write and sing music for my favourite band, Asia. His overdubbed four-part vocal harmonies were inspired directly by them, and the Asia song 'Voice Of America' is a tribute to them. In the middle eight of that song, there's a vocal harmony spot that concludes with a loud 'Ahhh'- which is a direct mimic of the one in 'Good vibrations'.

This was MY SONG! And after listening to it in the car while driving around, if I played it on the sterio - well, this one day I played it so damned loud, all the plaster fell off the wall under the 3 window bay window in the dining room. And I just kept laughing and singing! :lol: :P

Well, this one and this, while driving up and down the River Road . :-D

Agreed that the Beach Boys were phenomenal vocally.

For a traditional 'rock band' I've yet to see much beat Mr Big for live harmonies with all four of the band singing.

Having watched the Queen Extravaganza set online in Montreux last week, I have to say that their live vocal harmonies were superb too.
