Duets in which the singers are arguing with each other?

What are some duets in which the singers (preferably a male and female) are arguing back and forth with each other?

The most obvious one is "Stop Dragging My Heart Around" by Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks.

A few others:
"Don't You Want Me?" by The Human League
"Don't Misunderstand Me," by Rossington Collins Band
"Well It's True that We Love One Another" by The White Stripes

Can you guys think of any others?

"Fire in the Loins" - GWAR
"This House is a House of Trouble" - Sally Timms and Marc Almond

There's an old country song (yeah, probably many) with the male and female arguing that I heard on Outlaw Country once that struck me how bitter it was (even for country!) but I can't remember it.

For character, musical theatre is a good option:

Anything You Can Do - Annie Get Your Gun
Take Me or Leave Me - RENT
Friendship - Anything Goes

A superior piece of 80's music video cheese featuring a super hot Carlene Carter (married to Nick Lowe at the time) and future Taylor Swift producer RE Orrall:

Re: Duets in which the singers are arguing with each other?

This 90's Britpop duet between Pulp's Jarvis Cocker and Lush's Miki Berenyi (from Lush's "Lovelife") cracks me up:



Lyrics:

Spoiler:
(Jarvis and Miki)
I've been so happy since I walked away
I never thought that I could feel as great as I do today
'Cause you were nothing but a big mistake
And life is wonderful, now that I'm rid of you

(Jarvis)
Oh I must've been crazy to have stayed with you
I can't believe I thought I was in love with you
But now the scales have fallen I can really see
And I say go to hell, 'cause that's where you took me

(Miki)
Well, I've felt better since I slammed that door
You always cramped my style, I never noticed before
It's been a non-stop party since I flew the coop
I can't believe I fell for such a loser like you

(Jarvis)
And is it any wonder that I felt so blue
When I was always having to put up with you

(Miki)
Oh, here we go again, just lay the blame on me
Don't say another word, 'cause sweetheart, you're history

(Miki)
I know that you miss me really, bet you wish that you still had me. You'll never find someone like me but I've got no regrets at all

(Jarvis)
I bet you're loving every minute of it. Sitting the the kitchen eating meager meals with the curtains closed. Go on, be a bed-sit martyr babe. I don't give a damn anyway

(Jarvis)
'Cause I've met this girl and she's so good to me
She's really beautiful, fantastic company
Oh, when I'm with her I realize what love can be
'Cause she's fifty times the person you will ever be

(Miki)
Good luck, mister, do you think I care?
Since you've been gone the offers have been everywhere
I've got a million guys just lining up for me
I've turned a corner, boy, my life is ecstasy

(Jarvis and Miki)
Well, I've been in heaven since I walked away
I never thought that I could feel as great as I do today
'Cause you were nothing but a waste of space
And life is wonderful now that I'm over you

Re: Duets in which the singers are arguing with each other?

There's a couple of innovative R&B ones:

"Be Careful" by Sparkle & R. Kelly (aka "Wait a minute...Let me finish!")
"She's Got Papers on me" by Richard Dimples Fields (His other half basically crashes the studio-recording to speak her mind at the end)
"Why you treat me so bad" by Club Noveau

On the rap tip, but I wonder if Positive K's "I got a man" qualifies

Fucking terrible garbage fire of a song, but hey, it counts.
