Jefferson Airplane - "White Rabbit"/"Somebody to Love"

Surrealistic Pillow (1967)

A sweet-voiced woman is often used to contrast with a gruff or sinister man (as the rest of the list will reveal). Paleo-psychedelics Jefferson Airplane hit paydirt with the opposite formula. Grace Slick’s still hair-raising voice dwarfs the gentle folkiness of original singer Marty Balin. And while Balin's softness was still vital to the band's overall sound, you don't hear him soundtracking cinematic bad trips to this day.
