    Not necessarily a smash hit, but Of Monsters and Men have been all over.

    Here is an off the wall idea. "The Loco-Motion" has been done by female and male acts. What if you mashed them together somehow?

    Maybe not smash hits but a couple of songs from more recent years that got radio play.

    When we played this one lead guitar played the trumpet part.


    This always went over well which surprised me, I wasn't in favor when we started playing it. Guitars covered the horn part again.
     
  5. I used to do this with the band. Great song and great performers. Of course it’s a bit before your time.

    Personally, I love this one. Two genuine artists in one basket, and Godley & Creme in the production mix.

    This was a big pop dance hit a few years ago.

    The 1st one that came to mind when you said that was Islands in the Stream. The second was Stop Draggin' My Heart Around. Those were already mentioned. However, the 3rd song I thought of hasn't. Bring Me To Life.

    I'm pretty sure that Aerosmith/Run DMC ''Walk This Way" would work with male and female vocals.

    And I have a soft spot for "Time Will Show The Wiser" (Fairport Convention before folk rock).
