Bette Midler & Dolly Parton on “Islands In The Stream”

‘Bette Midler is funny’ is a complete understatement on how Bette Midler is really really funny and by funny, we mean her outrageously trying to become a mermaid or whatnots. I mean, who doesn’t dream of being a sea creature every now and then with all the craziness in the media world. In 2000, Midler has become the star of her own sitcom. In one of its episodes, Dolly Parton herself paid Midler a visit and the result was extremely hilarious in the 2000 kind of way. Two of the most talented women in the industry decided to sing Parton’s hit ‘Islands In The Stream.’

Islands In The Stream, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers

Named after the Ernest Hemingway novel, it was originally written for Marvin Gaye in an R&B style, only later to be changed for the Kenny Rogers album. It was released in August 1983 as the first single from Rogers’ album Eyes That See in the Dark. It was originally released by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers and was originally penned by no other than Bee Gees.

The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States, giving both Rogers and Parton their second pop number-one hit after Rogers’ “Lady” in 1980 and Parton’s “9 to 5” in 1981.

In the video below, Bette Midler’s character was extremely over-the-top and had mermaid dance moves that will crack you up. However, there’s one big surprise in that would probably send you home crying and laughing on top of your lungs.

Watch till the end and surprise yourself:

“Islands In The Stream”
(feat. Dolly Parton)

Baby, when I met you
There was peace unknown
I set out to get you
With a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside
There was something going on

You do something to me
That I can’t explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
Every beat of my heart
We got something going on
Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel
Needs no conversation
We can ride it together, ah-ha
Making love with each other, ah-ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ha
From one lover to another, ah-ha
