Duets Are All the Rage
After the Eminem / Elton John duet on the Grammys broadcast I got to
thinking about other strange musical pairings that I'd like to hear.
We've already seen Aerosmith and 'N Sync together during the Super
Bowl half-time show. And we've heard Huey Lewis and Gwyneth Paltrow 'Cruisin'.
But who else would make a great off-beat pairing to raise a few eye-brows.Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Michael Jackson doing a great

Madonna and Courtney Love teaming up to do a remake of Elton John's
'The Bitch Is Back' (Pull your claws in ladies)
Tim McGraw and Dr. Dre country rapping their way through 'I Fought
Sean 'Puffy' Combs and Wilson Phillips singing 'Release Me' (A little

Westlife, BB Mak, 'N Sync, Backstreet Boys & all the other

Shania Twain and Alice Cooper doing that great country song
'Man, I Feel Like a Woman'
Michael Jackson and Marilyn Manson remaking Shania's hit 'The Woman
George Harrison and Michael Bolton laughing their way through 'I Write
the Songs' (Try to keep a straight face guys)
Whitney Houston and Bob Dylan toking it up with his classic 'Rainy

Metallica and Shawn Fanning doing a killer rendition of The O'Jay's
'For the Love Of Money'
Rod Stewart and Bill Clinton doing a medley of 'Mambo #5 / Take It
Easy / I Only Have Eyes For You'
Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, 'N Sync and Eminem updating
the classic 'Why Can't Be Friends'
And finally George W. Bush and Saddam Hussein stirring up old
memories with a John Lennon medley of 'Imagine' and 'Give Peace a
Here's my list:
Got a special duet you'd like to hear. Let me know.
