  1. Ha ha ha, very funny, I like that. What about replacing “It Takes Two to Tango” with “Between Brain and Heart”, is the tango still on :-)

  2. Some of those make no sense, or involve more than two variables.

    Although, even if it’s tacky, titles that include some instantly recognizable cultural metaphor or catch-phrase are more likely to catch a reader’s eye.
