* Music/TheCars (Ric Ocasek and Ben Orr)

to:

* Music/TheCars (Ric - Ric Ocasek and Ben Orr)Orr, a baritone and a tenor respectively. Usually Ben sang the more melodic songs and Ric the quirkier songs, but there are exceptions in both cases, like Ric singing "I'm Not The One" on ''Shake It Up'' and Ben singing "Don't Tell Me No" on ''Panorama.'' After Ben's death in 2000, the reunion album and tour ''Move Like This'' featured Ric singing all old and new songs. Ric wrote or co-wrote all The Cars' songs but was still known to say, "If a song needed a ''good'' voice, it would go to Ben."

* The cartoon band YourFavoriteMartian started out with vocals almost entirely by Puff-Puff (voiced by Ray William Johnson), but as time went along, guitarist Benatar (voiced by Jesse Cale) began singing more and more. About halfway through its lifespan of biweekly releases, the tradition of Puff-Puff rapping the verses and Benatar singing the chorus became more and more established. Benatar even sang lead the entirety of one song. By the end, Benatar sang just as much as Puff-Puff, if not more.
