Well this list is kind of a mess... might be my fault, totally. What i meant was to list songs were the lead singer (and only the lead singer) harmonize with him very self... just like Paul in All My Loving or George in You Like Me Too Much ... i definitely wouldn't add You know my name since there is not really a harmony going on... just silly voices and noises all over the place, neither Obladi-oblada where we have John and George doing harmony with Paul, same thing with Eleanor Rigby ... Anyway i'm not really sure that there might be 13 (or more) songs where the did this so maybe there is no point in continuing with it...ahdn_george_01

In obladi paul and only Paul harmonises with himself at the last chorus.

 

But up to you if you want to abort this list as the creator of it...

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

I think this category has too many limitations and a lot of us (myself included) are going to struggle to find a thirteenth answer based on the suggestions we've already been given

I've quickly gone through Ian MacDonald's book and the following songs have the lead singer also singing harmony vocals (but with other Beatles singing backing/harmony vocals too, so I'm not sure if we can count them):

 

I Me Mine

I Want You (She's So Heavy)

Baby, You're a Rich Man

I'm struggling to think of a good subject here, so don't mind if somebody else wants to pick up the baton.

I have to add this to the rules:

 

- Sometimes two people post at once.  The next person should be so good as to tidy up the list and number it properly.

  

Finally got a Brian Epstein mention on the 8th go-round! Four Beatles + Brian = Alchemy = Beatlemania = story of my life ?
