Please use this thread to post songs or mention artists who make best use of non-lyrical vocals. We’re talking Ooohs, we’re talking Aaahs, we’re talking Ba-ba-baas. Preferably with harmonies and enough to be a significant portion of the song, not just whacking an “Ow!” at the end of a line.
Grizzly Bear are kings at this and the “Friend” EP has 3 of the absolute best examples imo.
This first one is one of my favourite minutes of music of all time:
Some lovely Ba-ba-baas from Feist.
The last minute of Death with Dignity. Cor! You could swim in that sound.
Please post some more.
