Sunday Sessions – Golden Age Duets

Everybody likes a good song and they like it even more when a singer they enjoy belts it out.  Even better is that moment when a second singer that they love joins the first and they perform it together.  There have been many duets over the years, the good far outweighing the bad and with a lot of performers at least giving it a go once or twice during their careers. Some of the best duets can be found from those singers and crooners of yore, men and women like Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, and Gene Kelly among others.  The Boys With the Proboscis is one of the funniest songs you will ever hear as Hope and Durante poke fun at themselves as is Put it There Pal or A Couple of Song and Dance Men which are just as humourous. Those and more as seen below are a just a few examples of what a good duet can ultimately be. Whether hilarious or dramatic, they are always a lot of fun and a joy to listen to and more often than not, leave you with a smile on your face.
