"It Takes Two": THE WEEKEND MIX
It takes two to Tango.
Two peas in a pod.
Can't be two places at once.
Two can play at that game.
Take two of these and call me in the morning.
Two, two, two mints in one.
The Terrible Twos.
You get the idea.
I created this playlist for myself, but since I had nothing else planned for today, I decided to share it. Maybe some of you will dig it.
A few of these duets happen to also be all-time favorites of mine, especially the Phil Spector-produced Harry Nilsson and Cher single. I also think "The Golden State," written by John Doe and performed by Doe with Kathleen Edwards, is one the best rock and roll love songs out there. I am sure you are familiar with most, but maybe a few will be new to you, like the Irma and Wolfman, or maybe Caitlin Cary & Thad Cockrell. I think the Jules Shear & Paula Cole is one of the most heartbreaking songs ever written and the Sonny & Cher tune, one of the happiest. And I know, you've had enough of "Under Pressure." Sorry, it had to be here.
Enjoy the mix, maybe with a loved one. Or maybe an enemy. It might break the ice.
