What are some of your favorite duets? I’ll start off with Judy and Barbra:
Everything by Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris. Here’s their probably most famous duet:
Another great country duet, and a favorite of mine: George Jones and Tammy Wynette, “Two Story House”:
I love watching Owens and Starr “Act Naturally”
Kid Rock, featuring Sheryl Crow
Billy Joel and the late, great Ray Charles - Baby Grand
Isobel Campbell of Belle and Sebastian, and Mark Lanegan - of lots of things, including Queens of the Stone Age, released 3 superb albums of duets.
One of my favorites is Come Undone.
She then continued the tight vocal duet thing on her solo albums, often with bandmate Herb Pedersen.
If I Could Only Win Your Love:
Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue “Where the wild roses grow” is wonderfully disturbing.
Kirsty MacColl and Shane MacGowan “fairytale of New York” is a classic
PJ Harvey and Nick Cave
Nick Cave and Blixa Bargeld
Blixa Bargeld and Meret Becker
One of my favorite Elton John songs. Kiki Dee had a few great hits on her own. A great duet and fun music video.
Indeed. Love the orchestration on it.
A few more with Elton Hercules John…
One of the best duets ever.
I keep looking to make sure her hands are normal size.
