twin videos seperated at birth???

I was putting up The Jesus and Mary Chain and Hope Sandoval and thinking 'why is this all guy band with a fabulous female guest vocalist sounding familiar? And the bar scenes??? La la la...Suzanne Vega and lalala...The Smithereens! Ah ha!'. Jeez, both videos are from around the early 90s, both have a guy singing sad love duets with a big deal female vocalist and IN A BAR. Maybe I am brilliant for realizing how similar these two tunes are, by fantastic bands with even better guest female vocalists. Sometimes you're in the mood for a sweet and melancholy love song, even if you're a macho guy like me...
