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

  • 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.
