* In Music/JoyElectric's spoken-word song "Hello Mannequin", the vocal track abruptly switches from the left channel to the right channel and back again with every single line.

** In the spoken-word song "Hello Mannequin", the vocal track abruptly switches from the left channel to the right channel and back again with every single line.
** On "Like Fools, They Bathed in the Pools", the song climaxes with two synthesizers soloing at the same time, one in the left channel and one in the right.


Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Danielson}}'s "A Song for Every Speaker" (from the compilation ''Art Core Volume 2'') is literally two different songs played at the same time, one in each channel.


Added DiffLines:

* DanielAmos' "Live and Let Live" (from ''Music/VoxHumana'') features chorus vocals that bounce from the left channel, to the center, to the right, and back again.

* The vocals on the final line of the {{Vocaloid}} song ''Wide Knowledge of the Late, Madness'' use this trope to great effect, even more so when watching the video: the repeated 'watashi, watashi' swings back and forth from left to right, creating the illusion of Miku gradually breaking down until the abrupt cutoff.

* The original single version of The Germs' "Forming" has the vocals panned hard left and everything else hard right. It was recorded to two track and all of the instruments other than the vocals were recorded at once with one microphone, so to be fair really ''any'' attempt at giving it a "stereo" effect would sound like gratuitous panning to some extent.

Added DiffLines:

* The [[{{Music/Ramones}} self-titled album]] by Music/TheRamones consistently placed guitar in the left speaker, bass in the right, and vocals and drums in the center. When Music/ScreechingWeasel did a song-for-song CoverAlbum of ''Ramones'', they had their version mixed the same way.

* On ''[[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits]]'' the songs "The System is Down" and "I Think I Have a Chance With This Guy" both use this in parts, with Strong Bad's "[=DOOOOOOOJ=]"s in the former and What's Her Face's "Guy, guy, guy, guy" in the latter.

* Music/TheBeatles: It's worth noting that Music/TheBeatles stereo mixing was done by other people and the band wasn't present during these sessions. There's a reason they say that "you haven't heard Sgt. Pepper's if you haven't heard it in mono." Their only album that was recorded directly to stereo and had the Beatles present and supervising the final mix was ''Abbey Road''.
It's also worth noting that this trope was the reason why George Martin remixed two of the groups earlier albums (''Music/{{Help}}'' and ''Rubber Soul'') when they were released on CD for the first time in 1987. He also wanted to remix their first four albums as well, but thanks to EMI, didn't have enough time, so they were issued with the original mono mixes instead.
