It Takes Two!

It was one of those accidental incidents of musical convergence, the stars aligning, or something else implausibly silly. Earlier in the week I was listening to a compilation CD that included the 1988 classic “It Takes Two” by Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock, which has been hailed as one of the greatest rap/hip-hop songs of all-time. I don’t listen to much hip-hop at all, but that tune is addictively catchy. Like many creations of that genre, it sampled an older song, in this case “Think (About It)” by Lyn Collins from 1972. That’s an oldie that many people have never heard before, but I was playing that song on yet another compilation CD that I have, James Brown’s Original Funky Divas, earlier this week too.

That phrase “It Takes Two,” motivated me to post these paired photos today. Yes, here are more photos from my recent trip to Myanmar, and this time all with two people in the frame … or in one case, a boy and a dog! But two it is: classmates, fellow monks, relatives, or just plain friends.
