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. ;)

    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it. 
    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/  
    • mmmm. Erik great, verses great, solo typical but still good, chorus suspect.  Am I the only one who hears Flashdance in the chorus 🤔 🤣🤣🤣
    • I am not here to convince any of you the Way. I believe everyone has the means and now makes their choice as per free will. Yet , isn't it amusing (well it is to me) how fundamentalist atheists are in their certainty. And I guess that is why you are so intolerant to other beliefs. There is no room for doubt in your minds. You feel you know all the answers and that there are no mysteries outside of your understanding. Though you are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant and then believing that is the entire knowledge of the elephant. Good luck with that.
