Terrik got in the beta too, apparently.

So here's our first duet - He didn't find his webcam for this first one so it used his avatar instead


He did this one under protest


I apologize for my atonal warbling in this one


This one was a challenge, we had technical difficulties but finally got it out

And in case people missed them, here are my past solo performances

.

Ok, well, not "past," did this one tonight while waiting for Terrik, too

As a side note: In the duets we aren't actually singing together--not exactly. He records his part, I join the open duet, record my part, and Twitch Sings puts both parts together to spit out the video. It's actually a neat system, because you can record a bunch of solo parts, and someone, like Gas, can sing his part whenever he's got time for it.

The reason I will never do this is because I'd look just like you guys did, plus I'd be in my basement singing. I already take enough crap from my wife about streaming I think this would push her over the edge.

Ok, ruuuude...

Whk-CHHHSSS!

Although, another thing that the non-simultaneous nature of the duets means, is you could set your WIFE up with her own twitch login, and then you two could make duets with just the one computer...

Also, even if you didn't sign up before, the twitch sings page says if you sign up now, you'll get an email to get in within 24-48 hours.

And for anyone who is interested in getting in on it but doesn't know how to stream, you don't have to. The Twitch Sings program handles everything for you, with no setup whatsoever (and you don't have to stream live while you sing, you can just have the finished product saved). And the videos it uploads are low quality (as I'm sure you can see by what we've posted) so they don't take forever to upload.

So really, anybody with a microphone can get in on this. A webcam would be good, too, but isn't strictly required.

The only Alan Parsons Project song is "I Wouldn't Want to be Like You"? That's one of their worst "hits". Sheesh. There are so many better songs. And I'm shocked about Landing in London by 3 Doors Down. It's a duet with them & Bob Seger.

Looking at the rest of the list now.

Yeah, I've also had issues where the song I wanted to sing by a given artist wasn't there, but other, "lesser" tracks were. I suspect it has to do with costs to license.

America - A Hores With No Name.
Duet or solo, and if solo, by who? :p

It did in the list. However, I only saw the Chattahoochee part of your first post. Skimming for fun & profit.

It should probably be pointed out that this list is compiled by a user, and that typo isn't in the game proper.

Four Frozen songs and Let It Go isn't in there? Bah! Bah, I say!

If you want a challenge, Dream On by Aerosmith is a great song.

EDIT: Oh wait, I see Let It Go is listed under Idina Menzel. Well, I know what I'm requestin'.

I would complain too, my daughter is the soprano, certainly not me.

Terrik & GB doing "Father and Son" by Cat Stevens would be interesting.

Also, all that Imagine Dragons and no Radioactive? Really?

Me trying to play will be accompanied by my daughter in the background telling me I suck. Just you wait.

Lock her outside the house for the 4 minutes it takes to do a song :p

Also, tell her that, like so much in life, sucking is what makes karaoke good.

Well, maybe not in those exact words.

Ever since we started paying for voice lessons for her two years ago, she thinks she's the god of singing. :p

Oh, and it might be slightly unintuitive to find duets that we've started. The trick is the magnifying glass in the upper right, then click players, then search for the twitch name (IE, GasBandit or Terrikus1985), and when you find them that way, it will show you all the duets we've started that you can complete.

Or you can start your own duet, and let us know to go complete it :p
