Duet Songs

Duet Songs

Duet songs have always been a great way to bond with each other. It's quite an elegant way for a couple to shower each other with their love, and for friends to enjoy some camaraderie.
Duet songs have been as popular as solos, if not more! A duet is sung by two individuals (mostly a male and female singer) and that's what makes it more appealing. Generally, duet songs are associated with expressing emotions especially love, and friendship and many a time to converse. For those who love singing (I guess we all do!), here's a list of some really memorable duet songs.

Male Duet Songs
Two guys usually don't go for duets, and therefore there aren't too many great numbers for this category. If you're ever at a karaoke and are cornered, coerced, or coaxed, you'll find good tunes in the songs that I've picked out.

Ebony And Ivory
Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder
Mack The Knife
Jimmy Buffett, Frank Sinatra

I Got Rhythm
George Gershwin
All My Life
Jodeci

Just The Two Of Us
Grover Washington, Jr. & Bill Withers
Little Drummer Boy
Bing Crosby, David Bowie

Start a Band
Keith Urban, Brad Paisley
The Girl is Mine
Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney

Under Pressure
David Bowie, Queen
Cecelia
Simon And Garfunkel

Female Duet Songs
There are way more female duets than male duets, so this one was much easier to compile. I've added a mix of all the fun songs for both, the beginners as well as the experienced singers.

Duet Songs For A Couple
And yes, the grand duets of all time. Take a low male voice and a high female voice, put them in a recording booth and let the ideas simmer for a while - that's how you make a historic duet. It's always been the male-female duets that are more popular, so I've left no stone unturned to give you the most enjoyable duet songs there are.
