Gentle Giant is the first thing that came to mind. (Also the third, fourth, and probably seventh.)

A three-vocalist project put together by Yuki Kajiura: Kalafina.

Charming Hostess, maybe? (lyrics nsfw.)

If "singing female plus grunting/screaming/deathmetalling male" counts as a duet, there's a ton of such bands. (Example: this older Within Temptation song. Wiki-walk from here to find others.)

Ayreon: rock opera for sci-fi geeks.

The time and seasons go on, but all the rhymes and reasons are wrong
I know I'll discover after its all said and done I should've been a nun.

Brian Wilson - Good Vibrations IMO, he does better with more tracks of himself than the rest of the Beach Boys.

Mark Knopfler with Van Morrison - The Last Laugh Worth it for the moment Morrison's voice comes in.

Most else I could add would be redundant with the artists already in this thread.

Huh? Wasn't the '04 Smile version done with members of the Wondermints? It's not just Brian multi-tracked. Or perhaps I misunderstand you. I'll admit, though, I prefer the Beach Boys version. Possibly the most nearly perfect piece of popular music ever created.

You are probably correct about what I linked, although for some reason I can't track down solid information about that particular track (I know there is overdubbing, and the Wondermints+others definitely handled the instrumental accompaniment, but I don't know who precisely is singing there). Your preference for the original version, in any case, is certainly reasonable; anything Beach Boys would find a good place in this thread.

Queen & David Bowie - Under Presure

...or the Freddie Mercury tribute concert version with Annie Lennox and David Bowie

And if you're just talking about vocal harmonies, then basically most of all the songs Queen ever wrote, for example Bohemian Rhapsody. EDIT: Although I suppose there's a fair bit of vocal solo stuff from Freddie Mercury too.

Just discovered an awesome band called "kopecky family band" and this is a good thread to recommend them - most (all?) of their songs are duets of a sort.

It's hard to pick just one song to recommend, but I'm going with Are You Listening, probably their catchiest and most duetiest song. My Way is my personal favorite (I like the studio version better than the live version but I can't find it on youtube).
