Here's a screen shot from Blondie's "(I'm Always Touched By Your) Presence Dear" music video.
There's the video above and as you can see there's a ton of shots of two Deborah's which heightens the duality theme.
In Madonna's video for "Rain" which, like the Blondie video, uses the color blue a lot, Madonna is wearing headphones (which I explained in the Radio Star entry). If you read the lyrics the song is also about a presence. Madonna even sings "I know it's real". There would be no need to question the reality of something that is physically present.
This would also be a nice time to bring up the new Basement Jaxx video "Raindrops". Obviously the song has similar lyrical content with Madonna's "Rain". Basement Jaxx also have an album titled Crazy Itch Radio. The outfits worn by one of the females in the video reminds me of Britney in her current tour.
The duality theme is all over the Basement Jaxx video.
