Current hit:  “My Universe” by Coldplay and BTS

Linked to:  “Is There Something I Should Know” by  Duran Duran /1983

Because:  Both songs have a big, bold sweeping sound and similar production flourishes. Both are ‘in your face,” peppy, energetic, and they “feel” alike.

It takes a moment to comprehend the pairing of British rockers Coldplay with South Korean boy band BTS…but… it works…and anyway, 2021 has had other quirky duets:  Elle King & Miranda Lambert have a Country hit,  and the current Elton John/Dua Lipa duo is still charting on Top 40.

Charting:  #14 on Adult Top 40 and #22 on Top  40.
