Was just wondering if any of you musical fans know of some nice duets for two women? I can think of a few - A Boy Like That, from West Side Story, a few songs from Chicago but find I can think of little others. Your expertise would be greatly appreciated. icon_wink.gif

Well, there's a couple from Wicked...For Good is really nice and slow and everything, but if you're looking for something more fun and funny, I would suggest What Is This Feeling?, but only if you can get another extra person or a couple of people to do the chorus part. Hope that helps! Oh, gosh, I am so predictable (hint: look at my avatar)

Defying Gravity from Wicked is good, also. The person singing Glinda's part just takes over the chorus role.

Take Me or Leave Me from RENT is wonderful, too.

"Way Back to Paradise" from Marie Christine(get the version in Audra McDonald's book. A lot of the ones on that long list are good, but I wouldn't reccomend anything from Wicked, Les Mis, or Rent, because all of those duets (though fun) are really overdone right now.

I don't know how you feel about Jekyll and Hyde, but In His Eyes, is great if you're both belters.

The Teachers Argument from Fame is a really good one, I'm only 15, and I'm not a trained singer and my friend and I did it for our half yearly assessment for music at school and got top marks.... so thats my suggestion lol icon_razz.gif

There's "Marry The Man Today" in Guys and Dolls.

I like it, but it might be a matter of taste, I don't know.
