It Takes Two

Music by William Stevenson

Originally Performed by Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston

"It Takes Two" is a hit single recorded in late 1965 by Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston for Motown's Tamla label. Produced by Weston's then-husband, longtime Gaye collaborator William "Mickey" Stevenson, and co-written by Stevenson and Sylvia Moy, "It Takes Two" centered on a romantic lyric that depicted many things in life (dreams, love, wishes, etc.) being better with two people instead of one. The single became Gaye's most successful duet single to date, later outperformed by Gaye's duets with Tammi Terrell.

    Release Date: 1966

Greg Gilpin : It Takes Two

This pop favorite, recorded as a duet by Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston and notably covered by Tina Turner and Rod Stewart, is amazingly arranged for SATB, SAB, as well as 2-part choirs. The SATB captures the fun and rhythm of the original while the 2-part smoothes the syncopated rhythms so they are accessible for younger voices.
