Among my peeves is “try and” as in “We need to try and move this along faster.” It almost always should be ‘try to” in that a verb is almost always next after to. The only time “try and” works for me is when I hear Jimmy Cliff singing

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try, you’ll succeed at last
