Nelson's music guru Dustin Stashko includes She and Him in this week's play list

Nelson’s Dustin Stashko is back with another playlist. This week he takes on duos:

Over the years there have been a lot of male/female vocalists that just complement each other. The ying to the others yang so to speak…  This is a playlist with the best male/female duos. Some songs are about heartbreak, and some about lovin’. Okay MOST about lovin’….

Johnny and June Carter Cash : Jackson – “we got married in a fever….”  We’re going to start this playlist off with arguably the best female/male duo ever. These two were IN LOVE with each other, and this song shows it off.

Mates of State : Goods – Indie sweethearts Mates of State were one of the first groups to break the plethora of modern duos. This tune is catchy as hell, and I guarantee the only words you’ll be singing are “da da da da” and a combination of mumbling.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros : Home -By now, everyone’s heard this song at least once, but I still get goose bumps listening to it. It’s adorable, AND they do a pretty great job if trading off vocals.

Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell : Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – A classic. This is fantastic, when mo-town reigned supreme and vocals weren’t auto-tuned. Gaye and Terrell harmonize like pros.

She & Him : You really got a hold on me – Actress Zooey Deschanel is an amazing singer, but partnered with musician, M. Ward it rounds everything out. I’ve been talking a lot about harmonizing here and I’ll continue to because, these two know each others’ voices so well that it seems effortless. Great cover. Grab your lady/guy and dance to this sweet tune!

Jesus and Mary Chain : Sometimes Always – I just love the name of this band… But on to the music! Songs about a guy who broke a girls heart, guy wants girl back… girl takes guy back, blah blah blah, we’ve heard it all before right? Nope. Not like these two. Song is honest. Catchy bass line, simple lyrics… Love this song.

The Kills : URA Fever –  This list is seriously lacking a “bump and grind” track. Here it is. Guys, you’ll love what the girl sings. Girls, you’ll love what the guy sings. You’re welcome.

Meatloaf : Paradise at The Dashboard Light – Yes, I didn’t forget this one! I love the different perspectives… I think every time this song plays at a bar, everybody knows their respective roles in the song. Guys belt out their words, and so do the ladies.

Joan Jett & Paul Westerburg  : Let’s Do It Two punk legends. Westerburg (The Replacements) and Jett both share a rasp to their voice. When they sing together it just works. Song’s hilarious too.

Stars : One More Night –  Couldn’t leave this list without a Canadian band! Chilling albeit bitter lyrics in this one. Oddly uplifting though!  Except for when the marker hits 2:32… That’s kind of a downer.
