Оtherworldly, simply unusual or just amazing duos

Оtherworldly, simply unusual or just amazing duos

The title states the order of preference for being included in the collection.
An example of “otherworldly” would be a duo where one of the two is dead at the time of the recording as in Segara-Dassin or Natalie Cole-her late father Nat King Cole. Another example of otherworldly would be Lucy Thomas’ duo with her-5 years younger-self. An example of “simply unusual” would be a duo singing in two different languages as in Noa-Massimo Ranieri. “Just amazing” needs no explanations, though could be subjective.
Suggestions are welcome, but should not be expected to be immediately accepted and included.
When making a suggestion please state which “sub-category” you think it qualifies for.
Other examples of “otherworldly” and “simply unusual” types – the ones that we haven’t thought about - are most welcome.
We would consider, as a matter of exception, a duo of a singer and an instrumentalist, but a clear "dialog" should be present.

Di, you underestimated it. It qualifies higher - as "simply unusual" - two languages. No doubt, we'll include it. Thanks.

Dr_IgorDr_Igor    Sat, 07/11/2020 - 23:28

Ira, great find. And BTW, you are a collaborator. You can(and should) just go in and add it

Dr_IgorDr_Igor    Sun, 08/11/2020 - 02:49

Hi, this would be a great suggestion, that would qualify with flying colors in the top sub-category of otherworldly, if the video on the LT
page was that of that virtual duet. What can be done - the easiest - is to add the song to the Junior and make sure that the duet video is in it.

Dr_IgorDr_Igor    Sun, 08/11/2020 - 16:08

Good job. Putting it in as we speak.

Dr_IgorDr_Igor    Sun, 08/11/2020 - 04:19

Both great suggestions and undoubtedly accepted. The first one is pretty otherworldly...;-)

Dr_IgorDr_Igor    Sun, 08/11/2020 - 05:49

Good suggestions. I would rate them as "just amazing", so they go to the pool of "just amazing" to compete for the available spots...

Dr_IgorDr_Igor    Mon, 09/11/2020 - 19:56

Уже внутри. Трудно поверить, что Паваротти согласился на это, тем больше уважения ему...

R_T_fexR_T_fex    Tue, 10/11/2020 - 11:58

Да, Ринго ещё чёрт-те когда сказал, что после "Битлз", в будущем, в моде будут ("да хотя бы") итальянские теноры. Тогда казалось нонсенсом, а потом я часто вспоминал...
"Трудно поверить, что... " - более того, выходил попеть вместе на концертах:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELnKoAUyU5Y - это клип совместный, но разрешение низкое и звук плоховат.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhytqzPLwOU - а тут звук нормальный, но снято из зала и видно так себе

Но тот клип, что в LT - тоже странный, там в слайд-шоу присутствуют фото Sepultura разных лет, в том числе - с другим вокалистом.. Тот случай, когда чистое аудио было бы лучше, ИМХО.

Но вообще-то, сочетание вокалов CLEAN + SCREAM/GROWL в одной песне стало уже довольно привычным.

Dr_IgorDr_Igor    Sat, 14/11/2020 - 22:29

Juan,
Pausini sisters would be a good fit for this collection
https://lyricstranslate.com/en/collection/it-must-be-genes-stars-perform...
It would be good to replace the video with this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sca-YU_Znmk
Otherwise it is barely detectable that it's a duo - their voices are so similar and they sing in unison.

I was also interested in her duet with Andrea Bocelli - Dare to live. But we have to have this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLmFEIksvh8&list=RDFNSG18HNSG8&index=9
There's so much chemistry between them in it. The one currently on LT ( in both of their pages) is nowhere near as good...

Dr_IgorDr_Igor    Fri, 13/11/2020 - 22:32

All three are great finds. The first song is part Greek and part what? Corsican? It didn't appear to me to be regular Italian, but what do I know...

malucamaluca    Fri, 13/11/2020 - 22:39

Yes, it's Corsican. The second band is from Corsica.

IremiaIremia    Sat, 14/11/2020 - 18:02

Yea! The collection is already 85 duets strong! Amazing!👏👍 Great job Igor and friends!!!

Dr_IgorDr_Igor    Sat, 14/11/2020 - 19:00

As we are facing an imminent sad situation of running out of room under 100 songs limit, what I started doing is migrating some of the entries
to later collections where they fit and there's more room to spare. E.g. all entries with kids are going to https://lyricstranslate.com/en/collection/you-are-never-too-young-join-s.... Then we'll probably thin the herd a little bit - as much asI love Mina and, especially, Celentano, MinaCelentano currently occupies 5 spots...

Dr_IgorDr_Igor    Wed, 02/06/2021 - 06:24

Спасибо конечно, но тут сотня давно уже была и все замечательные дуэты не влезали, поэтому я сделал еще
две коллекции - более специализированные: дети/старики и родня.
Роберта и Антонио не подходили в специализированные, поэтому я освободил одно место здесь для них.

Dr_IgorDr_Igor    Wed, 02/06/2021 - 06:49

Андрей, этих не было, но эта коллекция в данный момент полна - 100.
Буду часть из нее перемещать в другие или частично почищу, а потом можно будет
добавлять. Две другие пока не полны, но там квалификация жестче.

Zarina01Zarina01    Tue, 30/11/2021 - 04:15

We need part 2!

Dr_IgorDr_Igor    Tue, 30/11/2021 - 04:44

Not a bad idea. Zarina. Let's do it!
