* 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!!

* Music/TheyMightBeGiants do this half the time on recorded tracks, with either John Flansburgh or John Linnell doing vocals and either the same one or the other one doing backup.

* Music/AkikoShikata (a good deal of ''ArTonelico'' series vocal tracks, ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' opening and ending, etc) does this all the time, and she really can take it to extreme levels. It's not unheard of for her to do 200 or more recordings for one song. She might as well be a one-woman choir. It helps that her rather incredible amplitude often makes you forget that all those voices belong to the same person.

** During his solo career, Collins did all three voice parts for his cover of the Supremes' "You Can't Hurry Love", to the point where he plays the entire trio in the video.

Occasionally, when recording a song, there's no backing vocalist available to bring out the melody and harmony. The most common solution is for the artist in question to record his or her ''own'' backing vocals and then overdub them into the final recording. In some cases, this can also be done several times over to create a "chorus of one" effect. The trope has been in use since the 1940s, when technology first allowed for the combination of several recorded tracks into one recording (also known as multitracking). Many modern equipment makes this trope easier and can even apply the effect in real time. May overlap with SoloDuet.
