Hmm....alphabetical by first name:

Al - "On Broadway"

Blondie - "Wild Honey" from the '70s shows

Brian - his voice is so different now from before. I'll have to have two: pre-voice change: the "Baby you know that I can't wait forever" vocal from "Can't Wait Too Long;" post-voice-change: all of the Disney album. Best vocal in years!

Bruce - "Deirdre"

Carl - "Only With You"

David - the 2012 live version of "Getcha Back"

Dennis - his tag on the live "Only With You." I'm a heterosexual guy, but when I heard the song on MIC and it came back and I heard Dennis, I frickin' swooned!

Mike - "Aren't You Glad," studio version

Ricky - "Here She Comes" and his vocal part on "He Came Down"

Where We Are is an outtake circa 1978 or so...

I've always liked that outtake. Some fans, such as myself, might know it better as "It Could Be Anything". Anyway, if they had worked on it just a little more, giving it a group vibe, I think it would have fit nicely on MIU.

Brian: Don't Worry Baby

Dennis: Little Bird (I prefer his earlier sweeter voice)

Carl: this is so hard... it would have to be his more "mature" voice from the 70s, This Whole World or Caroline, No (live from In concert) come to mind at the moment

Mike: I Get Around

Al: You Still Believe in Me (In Concert)

Bruce: Nearest Faraway Place  :lol

This is a bit of an old thread but I donít care, Iím replying. I was away at the time.
 
Brian: Donít Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder), Wouldnít It Be Nice, The Warmth of the Sun
Carl: Itís Gettiní Late, Where I Belong, God Only Knows
Dennis: (Wouldnít It Be Nice To) Live Again, Slip On Through, Forever
Mike: Big Sur, Meant For You, All I Wanna Do
Al: Lady Lynda, Cotton Fields (single version), Help Me, Rhonda
Bruce: Deirdre, Disney Girls, Tears In The Morning

Special mention for Blondie and his amazing lead vocal on Sail On Sailor. Carl was the best singer in the group by far, but not even him could match up to what Blondie brought here. Nobody could.

Edit: post number 666 for me! Mwahahahaa :rock

I thought it was an outtake from his first solo album.
