Duets


Dave

Recommended Posts

Duets are like cover versions.....sometimes they work, alot of the time they don't.

What ones do you like and what ones don't you like ???

 

Some good ones IMO are Lita Ford & Ozzy with Close My Eyes Forever and Crown Of Thorns & Doro with Shed No Tears.

Some not so good ones IMO are Kip Winger & Fiona with Everyting You Do, Alice Cooper & Twisted Sister with Be Cruel To Your School, Mark Reno & Ann Wilson with Almost Paradise and the worst of them all..........Hold on to your hats and brace yourself for this......It is PPPPPPaa.....PPPPPaaaaauuu.......PPPPaaaauuulllllll......RRRRR....RRRRRooo...RRR

Rooooddd....RRRoooddddggg...eeerrrrs.....Fuck that was hard to say & Ann Wilson {and she too, is hard to say} with the absolute boring song, Norweigen Wood.

 

Definately no :bowdown: for that one :lol:

Andi Deris and Candace Night (Blackmore's Night) do a nice duet called "Light The Universe" on Helloween's KEEPER OF THE SEVEN KEYS: THE LEGACY

The Storm ones are good.

 

The Bad Habit one on the end of 'Adult Orientation' is awful, as is the Robin Beck/James Christian one on an album recently.

 

I generally hate the male/female ones... there was another awful one on Michael Borman's last solo album... but the dude/dude duets are normally cool, if they're a good band/artist in the first place. Fightstar also meshed well together with 2 vocalists.

I was listening to 'Turnaround' by Pride of Lions and enjoying the excellent female vocal and wondered if there was a thread on duets generally, so dug this one up.

 

Surprised the thread is so short. Are there any other good duets that spring to mind? Maybe songs released since this thread was last visited?

 

Also, is the female vocal on the Pride of Lions track by Tori Hitchcock (as suggested by my brief research)? Has she done anything else? Great voice imo!

I loved Houston's - Truth Slips. Does that count?

"Close My Eyes Forever" hasn't aged well for me, sadly. Loved it at the time, mind you.

I rather like Lizzy Borden & Betsy Bitch's version of "Don't Touch Me There"

Here is "newish" one that I think works: Doro Pesch and Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish)..

 

 

 

Another interesting one is Doro and Lemmy - "Alone Again"

I really like Rob Rock's cover of "Move On" feat. Tobias Sammet. Speaking of Tobi, I also like H.E.A.T.'s "Black Night," although I understand I may be alone in that.

Presume I was the only one who was hugely impressed with Tori Hitchcock's voice? Can't seem to find anything about her online, so presumably she doesn't appear on any other songs...

This was a borderline public service announcement in Australia in the 80's when it was released. It was used in anti drug campaigns on tv and I remember seeing it many times at the cinema pre main feature. It's a great song. "Do you do the drug or does the drug do you?" For me, maybe a little from column A and a little from column B. ;)

    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
