Harmony in My Head - Buzzcocks (Steve Diggle)

European Female - The Stranglers (JJ Burnel)
I sometimes have to check who is singing on Stranglers tracks, same with some Libertines.

That's a great example, because I love Marriott's voice, but that is one of my favorite Small Faces songs.

Hello,

Too Tough To Die - Dee Dee Ramone (granted it's an alternative take - Joey sang lead on the proper release of the album).
