We now take up the third leg of the Micro View of Songs for the Year 1944 – The Duets. The over view article, Best songs of 1943: And the winners are? notes that ff the 547 songs for which singers are identified, 172 are the duets
We will explore the duets available on YT, but not covered in Memorable Songs of 1943.
We have followed the order in which the films have been listed in HFGK, except that, for the sake of ease of documentation, wherever possible, all the duets of same male singer have been grouped together.
As has been the practice over this series, we take up Male-Female Duets first.
