Great Duos

Hall and Oates
Daryl Hall and John Oates are the most successful duo in music history. With hits spanning 4 decades, everything from “She’s Gone” to “Do It for Love.” These blue-eyed soul white boys from Philly have proven to be masters at pop, rock, soul, new wave, A/C and more.Daryl Hall and John Oates

Donny & Marie
OK, so this is a guilty pleasure pick. Who didn’t watch their variety show from the 70’s? It had music, it had comedy, it had ice skating. I remember having the album from the show and singing along to “I’m a Little Bit County, I’m a Little Bit Rock n Roll.” Also, going to the movies to see their movie “Going Coconuts.”

David and Maddie (Moonlighting)
When this show first came out, Bruce Willis and Cybill Sheppard had great interplay with one another. The dialogue between them crackled with sexual tension. It was good for a few years, but when they did finally get together the show fell apart. I will still keep those early episodes though.

Richard Pryor/Gene Wilder
These 2 comedy greats worked so well together, they starred in 3 movies together: “Silver Streak,” “Stir Crazy,” and “See No Evil, Hear No Evil.” Enough said. Check them out on video.

Satin and Christian (Moulin Rouge)
Nicole Kidman and  Ewan McGregor brought back the modern musical in Baz Luhrmans’s “Moulin Rouge” featuring the songs of LaBelle, Madonna, Elton John and Nirvana among others. When Christian sings “Your Song”, you will be swept away.
