View Full Version : Duets between two male singers

It seems like when a duet is sung, in pop music, it's almost always between a man and a woman. The contrast of high and low voices has led to this being the norm, I guess, plus the fact that most duets tend to be romantic love songs. Besides that song between Peter Cetera and Terry Kath by Chicago (can't remember what it's called,) are there any other male-male duets?

David Bowie and Bing Crosby singing "Little Drummer Boy" on Bing's Christmas special. Their performance is cool on many levels.

Frank did a bunch of duets with rock stars like Bono in the early 1990s. His voice was gone by then.

My fantasy duet would be Donald Fagin of Steely Dan with a young, high-voiced singer like Jason Lytle of Grandaddy. Not sure what song they would do, but that contrast of voices would be amazing.

There's this Montreal band that's bouncing around the indie scene now called The Unicorns. On their album "Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone", they have several male duets that are kind of tongue-in-cheek. One of the catchier ones is "I Was Born A Unicorn" which has a hilarious back-and-forth between their two lead singers.

1994, this one. I've always preferred his older voice. Less range, less power, but a lot more control. You heard Angel Eyes on the 80th birthday album?

That's the beauty of it! It's the only Christmas video I like because of the "WTF?" factor, and it's not a bad song to boot.

I saw a version of Little Drummer Boy with Clay freaking Aiken greenscreened and mixed with Bing. That moment I swore off American Idol. Forever.

Jackson & McCartney (boofuu's protest notwithstanding) later had another duet, "Say Say Say".

David Bowie also turns up in "Under Pressure" with Queen (with Freddie Mercury, of course...that counts, doesn't it?).

There's also "Don't Fight It" with Kenny Loggins and Steve Perry (of Journey).

I just have to also include the cover of the Scorpions' "Blackout" by Six Feet Under with John Bush (of Anthrax).

I think you're jumping to conclusions.

He could have meant that he questioned the male duet status as it was David Bowie with Queen, not David Bowie with Freddie Mercury and Queen.

While it is two men singing, is it a duet if it is an outside performer singing with the band and their lead singer? I think that's nebulous.

Though didn't David Bowie duet with Marilyn Manson on I'm Afraid of Americans?

Chef and Elton John singing "Love Gravy".



Actually, a few years back Jules Shear did an entire album, called Between Us (http://www.rollingstone.com/reviews/album/_/id/210813/julesshear?pageid=rs.Artistcage&pageregion=triple1), of songs that he specifically wrote to be duets. (In the liner notes he complains that most duets could just be one singer songs, as there isn't really any difference in perspective in the two parts- the lyrics are just arbitrarily split between the two singers. He wanted to write songs in which the singers could sing back and forth to each other each with a different point of view.)

There are some great guest vocalists on this album, about third of them are male.

One of the highlights of the album is a song called "Revenge", a duet between Jules Shear and Freedy Johnston. The song is a conversation between two guy friends when one has just been hurt by a woman. It's a pretty intense emotional song.She hurts you and
In Revenge
You kill a fifth.
But that only works in old movies
You know it's just a myth

His guy/guy duets with Ron Sexsmith and Curtis Stigers are also excellent.

Willy Nelson and Toby Keith - Beer for my Horses

How about Willie and Ray Charles doing Georgia On My Mind if for no other reason than that their individual versions set the standard for how this song is to be done.

Are we permitted to list those "two guy acts" like The Righteous Brothers? There's got to be at least a dozen of them. Two that spring to mind as examples of the other extreme would be Sandler and Young. Man, could they murder music!

I heard a duet performed by Pavarotti and Sting. It was Panis Angelicus and I found it surprisingly enjoyable. Something about the blend of Sting's somewhat dry and scratchy voice and Pavarotti's strong and fluid tones--I don't know, but I really liked it.

Most of my favorite examples have already been mentioned, but there's also
the duet that David Bowie and Mick Jagger did of "Dancing in the Streets"
Sting and Mark Knopfler/Dire Straits on "Money for Nothing"

Are you counting those groups (like the Beatles, the Beach Boys, They Might Be Giants) that have more than one lead vocalist, sometimes singing in unison or in back-and-forth interaction? (My favorite example: "The Slacks" by Trip Shakespeare)

Tim McGraw and Nelly colllaborated on a song (if that's what you want to call it). I don't know the name 'cause I don't like it.

"Shameless" was originally a song by Billy Joel that was then recorded by Garth Brooks. I swear I heard a version with both of them singing.

Jimmy Buffet with Alan Jackson, "It's 5o'clock Somewhere"

Jimmy with AJ, George Strait, Brad Paisley and Toby Keith on a remake of "Hey Good Lookin'"

Someone already got "Beer For My Horses, " but Toby offered his voice to the Cletus T. Judd (Country version of Weird Al) parody of "I Love This Bar" called "I Love NASCAR."

I don't know, is there a difference between a duet and a 'song with a featured vocalist'? I would never call Dire Straits' Money for Nothing, for example, a duet. Mark Knopfler sings it, and Sting adds some back-up stuff, harmony, and color.

I don't mean to hijack the OP, but there are plenty of 'multi-singer' songs, but somehow I think a duet is different.

SisterCoyote

Elton John and Nik Kershaw dueted on "Old Friend"; Elton and Paul Young on "I'm your Puppet", both songs off the same album that brought you the Elton/RuPaul version of "Don't go breakin' my heart."

There's also Axl Rose and Don Henley on "I will not go quietly," but I think that violates the Eonwe rule above.

I don't think it's considered a "duet" when it's just one guy singing the melody and the other guy is only singing harmony behind him. In that case, it's just a lead singer and a backup singer. In order to be a proper duet, I think both singers need to contribute roughly equal amounts of lead vocal.

A duo doesn't necessarily sing duets. Even The Beatles rarely sang duets - most of the time it was John or Paul singing lead and the other guy(s) singing harmony.

Heh. I'm a country music geek too, which is why I'm surprised no one has yet to mention Waylon & Willie on "Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys."

Travis Tritt and John Mellencamp did a duet called "What Say You."

Toby Keith has a duet with Merle Haggard on his new album.

I suppose duos like Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, and Big & Rich could be considered duets- at least on some songs; sometimes one singer takes the lead and the other is just back-up vocals, like Phase42 said.

Besides that song between Peter Cetera and Terry Kath by Chicago (can't remember what it's called,) are there any other male-male duets?

Throughout its existence, Chicago usually has been staffed by at least three lead singers (all male), so several of the group's hits include voices by multiple male voices. But Cetera's voice is the only one that, to me, is distinctive enough to pick out. I have never been able to tell whether the other voices are Robert Lamm or Terry Kath or Bill Champlin or whoever. So I couldn't say whether any particular song was a duet or a trio or whatever.

I believe "Saturday in the Park" has multiple lead singers.

Terry Kath accidentally killed himself in 1977 or so and the multi-voiced Chicago hit that sticks out most in my mind is "Hard Habit to Break," which was from the 1980s, so it couldn't have been Cetera and Kath on that one, anyway.

If a TV performance counts, once on Saturday Night Live, Paul Simon and Willie Nelson dueted on "Graceland". Boy, I could listen to Willie duet with anyone.

that most duets could just be one singer songs, as there isn't really any difference in perspective in the two parts-
Those who don't know already don't care, but the Grateful Dead in "Jackstraw" have two different singers with two different perspectives (one of which ends up killing the other).

If we include Broadway, Leo Bloom and Max Bialystock in "The Producers" sing several songs together. As do other actors. "Keep It Gay," "I Wanna Be A Producer," and "Springtie for Hitler" are just a few.

I have "I Wanna Be A Producer" off of the Broadway: The American Musical CD collection and it's a HUGE production number, but it's just Matthew Broderick singing with a chorus doing backup. Is there another time that's sung in the show where they both sing?
