Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Darlene Love and Bette Midler are absolutely incredible on their duet “He’s Sure The Boy I Love.”

It is a track on Midler’s newest studio album It’s the Girls! The tune was co-written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, and originally performed by The Crystals. The song is infectious, with a retro vibe to it, and it is easy to sing along to. Midler and Love’s vocals blend well on harmonies together and the result is a masterpiece duet.

“He’ never be a big business man, He always buys on the installment plan, He sure ain’t the boy I been dreaming of, But he’s sure the boy I love,” the acclaimed songstresses sing.

They are able to dust off the original recording by The Crystals, make it sound fresh, and subsequently introduce it to a brand new generation of fans.

The Verdict

Overall, this duet is a gift from two musical goddesses: Bette Midler and Darlene Love. They truly knock it out of the park. It does not get any better than that. They ought to perform it live at some point in concert. It will certainly be well-received by their fans and listeners. “He’s Sure The Boy I Love” earns an A rating.
