    You know, as cheesy as it is, it has that sort of "Sweet Caroline" quality that would probably go over like crazy if we didn't take it too seriously. :D

    Absolutely, and everyone loves Dolly Parton. And all I know is women go crazy for this song.

    Turn “I got you babe” into a creepy metal tune where she’s innocently in love and he’s prepping his basement for her.

    We Built this City- Starship, or Jefferson Starship..whatever lol. I was in a hubby and wife band a few years ago and they did a killer version of that, as well as another 80's staple "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Buggles. He sang the verse and she did the chorus. That was a fun band, and the bass is pretty fun to play on the Buggles song.

    Maybe not a smash hit, but this band had its moment a decade ago:

    It's a good song.....only really old timers know it. We played it in bars, but didn't inspire anyone to dance, cheer or throw down a jigger. We did the song well, just didn't win friends.

    It Takes Two, by Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston never fails to get people up and dancing.

    Also, not so much harmony, but great duo vocals trading off lines: Fontella Bass and Bobby McClure singing Don't Mess Up a Good Thing.

    Although a bit cheesy, Roxette had some catchy tunes.

    Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” has a prominent male and female part.

    Marvin Gaye’s
    “Ain’t nothing like the real thing”

    There are lots of Fleetwood Mac songs that have male and female vocals.

    We did "Walk Like An Egyptian" with male vocals. Since there are trading lead vocals, you can trade off between a female and male.
