Two of a Kind

Album: Two of a Kind (1961)

Songfacts®:

  • There have been many songs with this title, but this is the most well known and arguably the best. Written in 4/4 time by Johnny Mercer and Bobby Darin, it was usually performed as a duet between two men, clearly a buddy song rather than a romantic one. It was inevitable that it should have been recorded by Morecambe & Wise, especially as in 1961 they starred in a TV series called Two Of A Kind. >>
