: I don't know if that's the correct term. But basically I realized that EVERY single song I've ever listened to that had a harmonica part in it, was a solo. Whether it was 5 seconds, or 5 minutes. Why is that?? Have I just not found a song where there's harmonica in the background, plus vocals at the same time?? I know a lot of artists happen to sing as well, therefore they obviously can't sing plus play harp at the same time, but still...

: Anyone know where I'm coming from??

Hey Jeff,

I know where you are coming from.
But...there are songs which feature both harmonica and vocals. Here are a few (the harmonica was played by the name in parenthesis):

"Roadhouse Blues" by the Doors (G.Puglese)
"More Than She Knows" by the Spin Doctors (John Popper)
"It's Alright" by Adam Faith (unknown)
"Midnight Rambler" by the Rolling Stones (Mick Jagger)
"(I'm Not Your)Steppin' Stone" by the Monkees (Jerry McGee)
"Not Fade Away" by the Rolling Stones (Brian Jones)
"Now Look What You've Done" by the Rolling Stones (Brian Jones or Mick Jagger)
"Little Child" by the Beatles (John Lennon)

I hope that this helps (and entertains).
Wishing you success in your endeavors,
