Plain to See

I believe there's good
In everybody's heart
Keep it safe and sound

With most duets, both singers are basically on the same page (e.g. No Air, Baby Come to Me, Ain't No Mountain High Enough), but for this Music Monday, we've got a decidedly different sort of duet: "My Eyes" from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

To bring you up to speed...

Dr. Horrible, a villain wannabe, is in love with kind-hearted Penny. He's been trying to get the nerve to talk to Penny for ages. Just when Dr. Horrible finally makes contact with her, his nemesis -- superhero Captain Hammer -- also winds up being introduced to Penny.

Captain Hammer is actually completely self-centered, but Penny doesn't realize it and thinks he's a good guy. When Penny and Captain Hammer start dating, Dr. Horrible doesn't take it well. Cue "My Eyes":

Can you think of other duets where the singers are feeling so differently? Would love to hear your examples!

The first one that jumped to mind was Jackson by Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood. Definitely on different pages. And, BTW, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash did a really good version, too.
