Today is the Day of Twos- 22 February, 2022. When we think of the number two, we think of two lovers, two’s a charm, two chances to succeed and two of happiness. When we think of the Day of Twos, we think of this love song with a twist sung by two singers.
“It Takes Two” was first produced in 1966. Sung by Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston, the lyrics were written by Mickey Stevenson, Weston’s then-husband and Gaye collaborator. It looks at the hopes and dreams of two lovers as they look into the future. You can find the lyrics in the link here. Here’s what the 1966 version looks like:
The version was remade 24 years later by Rod Stewart and Tina Turner which became an even bigger hit and smashing success. It appeared in several comercials including one with cola giant Pepsi.
Regardless of what version you like, we need songs like this to give us an incentive to think ahead. In light of what is happening in the real world, we still have our dreams and hopes for a brighter future. And sometimes it takes more than one person to make it happen, because one cannot do it alone. It takes two to tangle, two to tackle the goals in life, and two to succeed. ❤ ❤
Let’s hope this holds true 200 years later when the Day of Twos happens again. 😉
