Singles dating orchestras bands musical duets
Open your ears and enjoy the company of two voices, very often singing as one, and always singing brilliantly.Don’t forget to let us know your best duets of all time…We have come up with what we consider to be the best duets of all time.We’ve gone back to the 30s with Fred Astaire and Jack Buchanan, included some wonderful 40s and 50s jazz and R&B duets, as well as some of the most famous duets from the 60s, featuring Motown artists who raised the art of singing together to a whole new level.It’s also because the blending of two voices is a magical thing, whether singing in harmony, unison or as call and response.

Beirut – No No No (2015) Beirut may have begun as the solo project of singer/songwriter Zach Condon, but the musical globetrotter credits the rest of his now-five-piece band for helping turn the fragments he’d written during the tumultuous period after 2011’s The Rip Tide into a cohesive album.Few bands operate in musical territory all their own, but the way horns weave through these tender ballads remains unique and gives the music a distinct bittersweetness as teasingly joyous melodies belie Condon’s snippets of loneliness and heartache.What is it about duet songs that make them so appealing?
Perhaps it is as simple as the fact that they are very often a love song, and everyone loves a love song.
These albums are filled with folky songs that would be at home on college radio next to post-rock and dance tracks.
