Who doesn’t like a good duet? I have been known to belt out a duet or two, and sing both the parts. Is that really considered a duet if you sing it all by yourself? I think not…
Since I like a great duet, I could not help but participate in Twisted Mixtape Tuesday this week. It’s entertaining to find this stuff on the internets. Keep in mind that I could be all predictable and post songs like I Got You Babe. But why do that when I can find stuff that is at least a little more unusual?
And come on, you know I have to do this…
The Boxer (1969) Simon and Garfunkel Bridge Over Troubled Water
I love love love love Simon and Garfunkel. What better way to start off a duets post? This is one of many favorites. I kept changing my mind about which one to share, but finally decided that this is the one since I’ve been singing it for days straight now!
All I Ask of You (1988) Steve Barton/Sarah Brightman
The Phantom of the Opera Original London Cast
Just to totally throw everyone for a loop let’s include one of my very favorites from a musical, shall we? I love this song so much I want to marry it. I saw this musical when it toured years back-it was absolutely breathtaking. I hope to see it again someday!
What Have I Done To Deserve This (1987) Pet Shop Boys/
Dusty Springfield Actually
This song brought on a bit of an argument between my husband and I. What exactly is a duet? I said this can’t be a duet, because the Pet Shop Boys are a musical GROUP, therefore that adds up to more than two people. Evil Genius said that it is two separate entities singing the parts or something with a coefficient or something like that… I finally gave in, and this song wound up on my list. I used to have this on a RECORD, people! You know, those big black CDs!
Always (1987) Atlantic Starr All In The Name of Love
I included this one as a joke… it’s an inside joke between me and my husband. Want to know? Ask him.
Close My Eyes Forever (1988) Lita Ford and Ozzy Osbourne Lita
Ozzy + Lita = AWWWWWWESOME!
More Than Words (1991) Extreme Pornograffiti
When I was but a young lass (or something like that) this song ruled.
Whiskey Lullaby-Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss
One of the most depressing and beautiful duets I know. Listen and try to suppress the urge to go shoot yourself. Or drink yourself to death.
Hillbilly Bone-Blake Shelton and Trace Adkins
Hey come on, I live in Iowa, I had to include this one!
Don’t forget what else happens on Tuesdays: The Humor Me Blog Hop! I’m not cohosting this week since I’m trying to get my act together at my new employer, but check out the great hostesses and folks that are participating by clicking on the cute ‘lil guys below!
