Episode 018: Duets


Episode 018: Duets
It takes two, baby, to tackle the subject of best duets! Pat and Gary come together to harmonize their favorites.

From November 10, 2011
00:00:00 Gary tries a new sign-in "How's everyone feelin' tonight?!"
00:01:30

Lots of reissues came out this month:

  • Achtung Baby - U2
  • Some Girls - Rolling Stones
  • Quaudrophenia - The Who
00:02:35

Gary introduces a new segment called

where he compares two songs to see if they are a little too similar.

  • Green Day - "Warning"
  • The Kinks - "Picture Book"

It's unanimous that this is a rip off!

00:05:20

Next, Gary calls for another segment of

 

Florence & The Machine's second album Ceremonials. They listen to "What the Water Gave Me"

 

Pat feels like it sounds like solo Annie Lennox, not in a bad way. He feels that it's slightly JUSTIFIED. Gary says it's fine, but he doesn't know when he would want to listen to it. Still, he feels it's UNWARRANTED, so, for the second week in a row this Buzzcut™ is a

 

00:09:20

Gary, who has gone segment crazy this episode, then launches into an improptu round of
Rock Solid: Title Fight

 

"Lonely Boy" by Andrew Gold

vs.

"Lonely Boy" by The Black Keys

 

Despite Gary viciously trying to bully Pat into admitting that The Black Keys version is better, Pat takes the wuss way out by saying that it's a draw [ed. note: this is all said with love, Pat and Gary]

00:13:10 This week's subject is introducted by playing the classic Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston song "It Takes Two"
00:14:55 Gary starts with a husband and wife team called The Mates of State - "Palomino" from the album Mountain Tops
00:16:40 On his follow-up to Bat Out of Hell, Meat Loaf played the roll of Sonny on the song "Dead Ringer for love" which he sang with Cher. This is off the Dead Ringer album.
00:19:35

Louis Prima and Keely Smith reminds Gary of his relationship with his wife: the big lummox and the dainty bird. He plays the classic "That Ol' Black Magic"

And interesting postscript, Louis tried to bang Gary's grandma back in the day.

00:22:35 Hey, why do the opposite-sex duos get all the fun? Kenny Loggins and Steve Perry proved that bros can duet too with their hit "Don't Fight it" from the High Adventure album.
00:24:10 Elvis Costello and Jenny Lewis sing a song about the Civil War with "Carpetbagger" from Acid Tongue
00:26:55 Stevie Nicks tried to repeat her past success with Tom Petty when she released "I will run to you" from the Wild Heart
00:29:25 Gary breaks out the whistle song Peter Bjorn and John - "Young Folks" from Writer's Block
00:32:05

cannot remain silent! With an impromptu segment of Law & Order: TSF he says that "Young Folks" sounds suspiciously like "Pumped Up Kicks"

00:32:55 Ray Davies put out a duet album of Kinks songs called See My Friends. On the album sang a cover of "Waterloo Sunset" with Matt Belknap's favorite singer-songwriter Jackson Browne.
00:36:05 Of course, Johnny Cash and June Carter sang the famous duet "Jackson" in 1963. A much, much less famous version is by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood.
00:39:55 Alison Krauss wanted to sing "Missing You", so why not call up John Waits to ride shotgun? From A Hundred miles or more
00:43:10 Gary brings out the French-est man ever: Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot sing "Bonnie and Clyde" from an album of the same name.
00:46:20

A special guest comes in to introduct Pat's last duet

 

 

Paul reveals that his favorite duet is by two old, half-dead rockers: "I Ain't No Nice Guy" by Ozzy Osbourn and Lemmy from March ör Die

00:48:55 Gary was nervous to play his last song, because it always makes him cry [ed. note: y'know, like a little girl would]. Pal Shazar and Jules Shear - "Dreams Disolve in Tears" from The Healing Bones
00:52:00 Pat plays out with a song taken from a new DVD of the Ed Sullivan show. In the show Ed stiltingly introduces some lads from England who know how to play the rock n roll. The Rolling Stones with "Satisfaction"
