Certain activities cannot be performed alone — such as quarreling, making love, and dancing the tango.
This cannot happen or have happened without more than one person; cooperation or connivance is indicated: It takes two to tango, said the mediator/ Now, it takes two to tango, but I still think it was more her fault
[1952+; the name of a 1950s song]
The active cooperation of both parties is needed for some enterprises, as in We’ll never pass this bill unless both parties work out a compromise—it takes two to tango. This expression dates from the 1920s, when the Latin American tango became a very popular dance. It was popularized by the singer Pearl Bailey in her 1952 hit song of that name written by Al Hoffman and Dick Manning.
