In the Ashford and Simpson song, ‘Solid’, the husband-and-wife pop duo belt out their famous duet under a Central Park bridge, reunited whilst taking shelter from a torrential downpour. The title of the song, of course, refers to the idiom and mainline, ‘solid as a rock’. The couple here harmonize and serenade one another, compounding the metaphor of their joint singularity and strength. This pair sum up the cultural idea of the dyad, of the single entity that consists of two parts. In this Motown classic, the dyad is rejoiced, uplifting and aspirational. The dyad is central to a lot of sociological thinking (most especially in heteronormative climates) but inevitably smuggles within it a dichotomy; it has to have two distinct parts to be whole. Perhaps, then, it is possible to be ‘solid as a rock’, whilst also being ‘stuck between a rock and a hard place’.
Somewhere in between is where Liam Fallon and Cathrin Hoffman have their duet.
