Hello readers! I love listening to music of all genres on a daily basis. I can’t go a day without popping on some headphones and listening to some upbeat tunes while I dance around my room or relax from a long day by listening to calming songs. In this blog post series, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite song picks with you in a mini-playlist of five songs.
In this monthly edition of “What I’m Listening To”, I’m celebrating female music artists in honor of Women’s History Month. Last year I focused on modern girl groups and this year I decided to list five of some of favorite female music duos. And now on with the music!
1) Boogie Oogie Oogie by A Taste of Honey
First on my list is, A Taste of Honey, who was an American music duo formed in 1971 by Janice–Marie Johnson and Perry Kibble. These two ladies would go on to become highlighted names in the disco era an in 1978, they had one of the best known chart-toppers of the disco era known as Boogie Oogie Oogie. This song has a funky rhythm and will definitely get you dancing in no time!
2) Dareka Ga by Puffy AmiYumi
Next on my list is Puffy AmiYumi is a Japanese pop/rock duo who sings in Japanese and English. The duo has been creating music since the late 90s and their first released single Asia no Junshin sold a million records. You also might recognize these ladies from the animated TV show, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, and as the singers for the Teen Titans theme song. Dareka Ga is an upbeat pop/rock song with a happy melody.
3) Alone by Heart
Though technically a band, Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson of Heart are one of my favorite female duos of all time .Heart rose to fame in the mid-1970s with music influenced by hard rock and heavy metal, as well as folk music. To date, Heart has sold over 35 million records worldwide, including over 22.5 million in album sales in the U.S. Alone is my favorite song by Heart and it’s such a solid power ballad to sing along to.
4) Love Is So Amazing by J Rabbit
J Rabbit is a South Korean indie duo with members Dawoon Jung and Hyesun Jung. They write their own songs and lyrics. Their music centers around the topics of love, happiness, hope, courage and cheering up. One of the reasons I enjoy this duo so much is that their music sounds so happy and that all of their performances are so entertaining to watch, because they seem to have such a fun time playing music.
5) Shackles (Praise You) by Mary Mary
Last, but not least, is one of my favorite contemporary gospel groups called Mary Mary. The duo consists of sisters Erica Atkins-Campbell and Trecina Atkins-Campbell. The duo are often credited along with Kirk Franklin for broadening the fan base of urban contemporary gospel in the 2000s by introducing elements of soul music, hip hop, funk and jazz. It’s upbeat, has a catchy melody, and always makes me want to sing along.
I hope you enjoyed this mini playlist! What are your favorite female music duos? Comment below with your picks.
