* Music/DaYoopers has many examples. Drummer Jim [=DeCaire=] can be heard singing harmony over himself on several tracks from ''One Can Short of a Six Pack''. Jim Bellmore used the trope frequently after taking over on lead guitar/songwriting duties from Joe Potila in 1995, as he regularly sings harmony to himself. This is particularly notable on "My First Time Ever", an {{a cappella}} track which has him singing all four parts of a barbershop quartet.

Added DiffLines:

* Vic Mizzy, who wrote the iconic theme for ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'', couldn't afford backup singers to record the song, so he triple-overdubbed his voice to simulate a trio.

* Used in Music/{{Queen}}'s "Bring Back That Leroy Brown" (all Freddie, including the highest and lowest notes[[note]]from an Eb2 (slowed down to a C2 in the finished recording) to a G5[[/note]]), "Leaving Home Ain't Easy" (all Brian), "More of that Jazz" (all Roger) plus a lot of solo records by each. "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Somebody to Love" are a DoubleSubversion; every member of the band is singing (except John), but they copied and overdubbed those vocals so many times that in some sections there's as many as 100 ("Somebody to Love" or "Bohemian Rhapsody") layers of vocals. And all done with analog to boot!

* Bill Oddie of TheGoodies used to work into the night to replace Graeme Garden and Tim Brooke-Taylor's backing vocals. He put his own vocals through a "harmonizer" so Tim and Graeme wouldn't tell the difference. Despite focusing on comedy - what a voice!!
