male/female vocal...


so i finally got my wish and was added to the very excellent hype machine (thanks anthony) the other day, providing me with a nice little bump in hits. my listing on the hype machine goes back a little way, but not all the way (mostly because i've removed a lot of those links). so, in light of that, here's an earlier post of mine that hopefully a lot more people will see this time around. it's one that i really liked--short, simple, themed, not to mention some of my favorite songs. (if you're coming from hype, say hello!)

(originally posted 08.16.06)
what can i say, i'm a sucker for songs about relationships, especially when they involve male/female vocal duets where the verses alternate as if it is perfectly normal to have a conversation in song. here are three of my favorite recent such songs, along with what is probably my very favorite, from way back in 1994.

john dragnetti and blake hazard
the submarines : "peace and hate" (mp3)
from the album declare a new state! (2006)

torquil campbell and amy millan
stars : "your ex-lover is dead" (mp3)
from the album set yourself on fire (2004)

ben gibbard and jen wood
the postal service : "nothing better" (mp3)
from the album give up (2003)

(my favorite and just rereleased!)
jim reid and hope sandoval
the jesus and mary chain : "sometimes always" (mp3)
from the album stoned & dethroned (1994)

anything else?

Hi Tad, good selection. Do you like the song "hoarding it for home" from mates of state? In this song the male/female vocal duet is wonderful.
If you don't know the song, you can download at my blog in july posts.
Bye

i hadn't had a chance to check out mates of state, but i did and i like that song very much. sort of a different take on the alternating verses, singing over each other like that. there's a lot of good stuff on your blog--i just wish it didn't take me so long to translate the spanish in my head. thanks again

This doesn't exactly fit the bill but there are two songs by From Autumn to Ashes called The Fiction We Live and Autumn's Monologue, one song is in response to the other, one male one female. I just love to listen to them back to back.
