INT. RECORDING STUDIO – DAY

A pair of men sit calmly behind the desk inside the recording booth.  The PRODUCER punches the talkback button.

PRODUCER: Okay guys, we’re looking good.  We’ve got ten more minutes of Jimmy and the Animal closing out, plus six more minutes of commercial, and then we’re on.  Thanks for showing up so early – they should call you the Punctuality Brothers!

TIKI and RONDE BARBER: Ha ha ha!

PRODUCER: The run-through was perfect so do it just like that and it should be a great show.  Sit tight and I’ll count it off when we’re about to go live.

TIKI and RONDE BARBER simultaneously give the PRODUCER a thumbs up as he releases the talkback button and steps away from the keyboard.

RONDE: It’s good to see you, brother.

TIKI: Likewise.  I wish we got to do things like this more often.

RONDE: Fatherhood doesn’t leave much for free time, eh?

TIKI: No it does not.

RONDE: You doing okay health-wise?

TIKI: Actually, no, not quite.  You noticed me limping a little when I walked in?

RONDE: I did.

TIKI: My old knee injury’s been acting up.

RONDE: Bummer.

TIKI: So how’s the family?

A cellphone begins ringing.

RONDE: [pulls phone out of pocket] Oh, damnit, sorry about that. [swipes to dismiss the call].

TIKI: Robocalls, huh?

RONDE: Actually, no.  It’s a collection agency.  They, uh, they actually think that I’m you.  They’ve been calling me day and night.

TIKI: Aw man, I’m sorry about that.  Must have been a mixup on the paperwork or something.  I’ll tell them to get that sorted out.

RONDE: Sure.  [looks down, drops voice] Listen, man, if you need some help holding everything together, all you have to do is ask.  You know that, right?

TIKI: I know it.  It’s cool, though.  I’ve got a plan.

RONDE:  That’s good.  I’m serious, though.  Anything you need.

TIKI: You know what? [reaches into his pocked and pulls out his car keys] There is one little thing.

RONDE:  Name it.

TIKI: I parked in a handicapped spot when I pulled in so I wouldn’t have to walk too far on this bum knee.  You mind running out there and moving my vehicle so I don’t get a ticket?

RONDE:  [grabs the keys] Sure thing, brother.  I’ll be back in a jiffy.

RONDE BARBER hurries out of the booth. A beat later the PRODUCER reappears behind the control panel.

PRODUCER: [punches the talkback button] Hey, where’d your brother go?

TIKI: Oh, he ran out to grab something from the car.  He’ll be back in a sec.

[cut to EXT. PARKING LOT – DAY]

COP: …okay, then tell me this: if you’re not the same Tiki we’ve got a bench warrant out on for failure to pay alimony, then why were you driving his car?

RONDE: He asked me to, man!  I keep telling you, I’m his twin brother, Ronde!

COP: Well, buddy, I’ll give you points for originality, that’s for sure.  You got some ID on you to prove that?

RONDE: Of course, let me show you…[reaches into his pocket and withdraws his wallet, then freezes]…that son of a bitch…

[cut to FLASHBACK – TWENTY MINUTES EARLIER]

TIKI and RONDE greet each other with a big hug.

RONDE: [raises eyebrows as they separate] Did you just grab my ass?

TIKI: Ha ha ha!  Just giving you a pat for showing up on time!  THAT’S GOOD HUSTLE!

[cut to INT. RECORDING STUDIO – DAY]

TIKI sits alone behind the microphone.

TIKI: …and hopefully Tiki will be able to join us after the break.  But for now, let’s get to the music!  Today’s topic is songs that are joined at the hip.  We’re looking for songs that – for whatever reason – belong hand in hand with each other.  That’s right, it’s a DOUBLE SHOT FESTIVAL.  Also, if you’ve got any songs about twins you can throw them in there as well. I’ll get us started with a pair from The Doors: “Peace Frog” and “Blue Sunday”.  You really can’t have one without the other.

No limits today, folks.  HAVE AT IT!

King Hippo

per Rikki’s suggest, here is SiriusXMU/Alt Nation #TwinBand double:

King Hippo

King Hippo

One end of our #NetsHouse…

King Hippo

To the other!

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Senor Weaselo

Neil Sedaka had this…

Senor Weaselo

So then Carole King wrote this. Which is hilarious.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

There’s a common theme here, see if you can spot it.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

If the Chicago Blackhawks don’t play this whenever they beat the Kings at home, their sound guy should be fired immediately.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Goes together like lamb and tuna fish.

Beerguyrob

This is the only acceptable rock tuna fish.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Two of my favorite drum intros that are actually kinda similar.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

This was an excellent Request Line intro, by the way.

SonOfSpam

Here’s some twins…Shotgun

SonOfSpam

…and the song that ripped it off

Senor Weaselo

Let’s go with the Beatles Medley Shot.

Senor Weaselo

I admittedly didn’t remember about “Sun King”

Senor Weaselo

It works because they all go into each other, but for not posting eight times in a row let’s just cut to “The End.”

SonOfSpam

SonOfSpam

This topic is fascinating.

SonOfSpam

Really fascinating.

Beerguyrob

I’m going to go with the Glimmer Twins.

theeWeeBabySeamus

This is just so SoS can “Dude” me. Actually that’s a lie, I liked these guys….

theeWeeBabySeamus

SonOfSpam

Dude.

theeWeeBabySeamus

theeWeeBabySeamus

SonOfSpam

Someone posted this in the piano one last week, but it definitely fits here.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Am I allowed to double that double? Meh, fuck it.

theeWeeBabySeamus

theeWeeBabySeamus

The person who put this up fucked up. It’s “Song of The Century” and “21st Century Breakdown” Double.

theeWeeBabySeamus

theeWeeBabySeamus

theeWeeBabySeamus

theeWeeBabySeamus

Let’s double that double….

theeWeeBabySeamus

Self contained doubles are the best doubles….

King Hippo

Similarly, in love with Zooey Deschanel:

King Hippo

And divorcing Zooey Deschanel (DON’T GET MARRIED, KIDS!!):

SonOfSpam

I think the final straw was when she asked Siri if it was raining outside.

King Hippo

just look out the window, goddamnit!!

King Hippo

Matt Shultz first song about his sweetheart/who became wife:

King Hippo

The divorce song, blowing up alternative radio right now:

SonOfSpam

They’re great live. (Dunno how they are dead)

King Hippo

little quieter is all ,, smh

SonOfSpam

Sure, she’s sweet, but what does she say?

SonOfSpam

Oh. Ok, thanks.

(I’m probably stretching the theme to the point of breakage, so tell me to cease and desist if offended)

Sharkbait

Sharkbait

So similar it got sued!

SonOfSpam

I’ll never forgive Freddie for ripping off Nilla.

King Hippo

that against the rules of da street, yo

/probably why Karma gave him AIDS imo godbless

SonOfSpam

Two very similar songs

SonOfSpam

This one’s also sensitive to teenage girls’ issues

Ian Scott McCormick

SonOfSpam

Moar Pumpkins…Today

SonOfSpam

…and Tonight

Cuntler

Since this is a football site, I present everyone’s favorite terrible Coors Light commercial:

Cuntler

(This has to be from when Kid Rock was popular, so like 2000-ish?)

nomonkeyfun

A double shot by twins.

nomonkeyfun

And the reason you wouldn’t like me.

Cuntler

Oh, here are few post-Beatles fuck you songs. The first is from McCartney to Lennon/Yoko called “Too Many People”. Apparently John and Yoko would sit around eating cake all of the time, and McCartney makes fun of their underground, artsy-fartsy, quasi-political revolutionary status. It’s actually a good song:

Cuntler

Lennon’s fuck you reply, “How Do You Sleep?” is a lot more famous and direct. Also, George Harrison played guitar, so we know how he felt:

SonOfSpam

Neil Young talking about racist assholes in the South (which thankfully isn’t an issue any more)

SonOfSpam

And Lynyrd Skynyrd’s clapback

SonOfSpam

(This song might be the single biggest “Fuck this song because it’s so overplayed” song in the history of music)

Cuntler

My second pick before a meeting.

Scarlet Begonias / Fire on the Mountain (this version has a great Phil Lesh bass line throughout)

Cuntler

Double Double Shot (a/k/a what Marlon Brando used to call his diet shakes, which were just blended In n Out burgers):

China Cat Sunflower / I Know You Rider

Sharkbait

Pink Floyd triple shot. AKA the last 10 minutes of Darkside.

SonOfSpam

“We’ll allow it.”

Dunno if Peace Frog is the best Doors song, but it’s probably the most fun.

Cuntler

Since Queen is omni-present these days:
