Greatest Male/Female duets

Went to see Walk the Line last night – brilliant film. Witherspoon deserved the gong for her performance as June Carter.

The film reminded me of just how damn good Cash and Carter sounded together – so who do WarwickBlogs think are the top male/female singer combos?

My selection would be:

  • Johnny Cash and June Carter – especially their signature tune 'Jackson'
  • Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris – anything by them really, but 'Love Hurts' is a gem
  • Nick Cave and Polly Harvey – some might say his pairing with Kylie was better, but I prefer his track with Polly
  • Martha and Rufus Wainwright – brother and sister sound so good together
  • Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston/Tammi Terrell – and you thought Marvin was good on his tod.

Anyone who suggests Elton John and Kiki Dee will be banned!

  3. colin – not sure i'd ever see the words 'greatest' and 'Linda McCartney' in the same context.

    Simon – Magic Numbers are v. good and probably should make the list

    I've got a version of "It aint me babe" with Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin singing together and it is unbelievable. Their voices together sound amazing

  5. Stacy – that sounds like it could be special

  6. Cash & Carter's It aint me Babe is approximately twenty billion times better than Jackson. And that's a fact.

    Thom Yorke & PJ Harvey's This Mess we're in is brilliant stuff, too.

    Tori Amos did a live duet with Maynard from Tool on Muhammad my Friend which is great but I can't find a clean recording of it. There's a video of it available here though, check it out!

  7. Falls off chair

    Where is 'Fairytale of New York'? The greatest duet of all time ever? Drunken London-Irish waster and elegant East Ender with the voice of an angel? Best lyrics in the universe?

    Sort it!

  8. Wow Paul – Nice to know you have the 'FACTS'. We can sleep safe tonight.

    Holly – eep. good call.

    Whisky Lullaby is a really good duet…Bill Paisley and Allison Krauss
    It’s country, but a really good and really sad song

  12. Anything with Mariah Carey in it deserves to be melted down and used as ballast for a sewage barge.
