Friday Random 20: Two is a Crowd.

It’s possible to do bad all by yourself, true. But things can really turn ugly when two or more people are involved.

Of course, this thought occurred to me as I watched news coverage of the – allegedly – bipartisan health care reform summit yesterday.

Well, to hell with bipartisanship. Sometimes, teamwork can screw things up. Don’t believe me? Ask Whitney Houston.

If you want more proof, check out the list after the jump. We doubled up this weekend just to prove how bad redoubling your efforts really can be:

1. “Unleash the Dragon” by Sisqo featuring Beanie Sigel (R.A.B.)

* In the original version of the song, Beanie is handling the rhymes. I don’t know who those dudes in the video were.

2. “The Girl is Mine” by Michael Jackson featuring Paul McCartney (Jamelle)

3. “Rocket Experience” by Buzz Aldrin featuring Snoop Dogg and Soulja Boy (slb)

4. “I’m Your Angel” by Celine Dion featuring R. Kelly (Alisa)

5. “Where the Wild Roses Grow” by Kylie Minogue featuring Nick Cave (Quadmoniker)

6. “Dancing in the Street” by David Bowie featuring Mick Jagger (Belleisa)

7. “Wild Horses” by Alicia Keys and Adam Levine (Shani-o)

8. “The Gambler (remix)” byKenny Rogers featuring Wyclef Jean and Pharoahe Monch (Alisa)

9. “Over and Over” by Nelly featuring Tim McGraw (Blackink)

10. “Hollywood” by Jay-Z featuring Beyonce (R.A.B.)

11. “Down Low” by R. Kelly featuring Ronald and Ernie Isley (slb)

12. “Basketball Jones” by Barry White and Chris Rock (Jamelle)

13. “Whatzupwitu” by Eddie Murphy and Michael Jackson (Alisa)

14. “Anyone Who Ever Had a Heart” by Luther Vandross featuring Elton John (Shani-o)

15. “Carpetbaggers” by Jenny Lewis and Elvis Costello (Shani-o)

16. “Wild Wild West” by Will Smith featuring Kool Moe Dee and Dru Hill (R.A.B.)

17. “I’m Real” by Jennifer Lopez featuring Ja Rule (Belleisa)

18. “Thug Lovin’” by Ja Rule featuring Bobby Brown (Belleisa)

19. “Little Drummer Boy” by David Bowie and Bing Crosby (Quadmoniker)

20. “Party All The Time” by Eddie Murphy featuring Rick James (Alisa)

Surely, “Party All The Time” was either: a. a rejected SNL sketch; b. an elaborate prank by Rick James meant to embarrass the Murphy family; c. proof that Eddie Murphy was already in decline.

Either way, 20 is plenty. Two is too much. Sometimes, you just have to go dolo.
