Peanut butter and jelly. Peanut butter and chocolate. Macaroni and cheese. Chicken in a Biskit and Easy Cheese.
All better because of their combination.
Well I feel the same way about singers (when I’m not hungry). Almost any song sung by a man and a woman is instantly superior to the solo acts. Sure, some same-sex double-ups are equally improved, but today, I don’t feel like focusing on cheese and cheese (although that does sound appetizing).
In no particular order, I present my list of all-time favorite duets:
The Human League – Don’t You Want Me
(more after the jump)
The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl – Fairytale of New York (also remade by Pilot Speed)
Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova – Falling Slowly
Straylight Run – Existentialism on Prom Night
Say Anything and Hayley Williams – The Church Channel
All-American Rejects and The Pierces – Another Heart Calls
Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand – You Don’t Bring Me Flowers
Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers – Islands in the Stream
