Man that was awesome. Bowie seems to excel at duets. My other favorite is Under Pressure with Queen. In each case two master vocalists perfectly complementing each other.


My daughter feels that "Under Pressure" is the best song in the history of ever.

Bing and Bowie was beautiful. An incredibly perfect mesh of two generations producing one of the most memorable Christmas songs of all time.

and she's right.  Which is why Vanilla Ice  will end up in the Hell of 1,000 Flying Knives (Chinese got a lot of hells, Jack) for blasphemy when he shuffles off his mortal coil
 
And I don't know if they were ever recorded anywhere but the duets Bowie did between sets with Trent Reznor when NIN opened for Bowie on his 2000 tour were utterly amazing-including the scond best version of "Hurt" I've ever heard
Also a big fan , believe it or not, of the Kylie Minogue/Nick Cave Duet on "They call me the wild  rose"

brandent: MaudlinMutantMollusk: Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: I love the Crosby/Bowie duet. You can almost see old Bing as he's realizing this weirdo can really sing.


That's one of the few Christmas songs that will choke me up
 
/absolutely beautiful

David Bowie and Annie Lennox performed Under Pressure at the Freddy Mercury tribute concert. She did a good job, but you can't top the original.

Yeah. Does not belong on this list. That match was a stroke of genius.

Heard "Baby, It's Cold Outside" sung by Rod Stewart and Dolly Parton. Surprisingly good, their voices blended well.

StrikitRich: Still no Taylor Swift - Kanye West duet?


Only if you promise that they sing from an airplane that's spiraling out of control.

dletter: How is Travolta and Newton-John "bizarre" when they were the stars of Grease?


Because these "lists" are about 99% total fail. I'm getting sick of all of the "Top 15 Greatest ______ Of All Time" bullshiat, because they almost always phone the shiat in, or just plain don't know what the fark they're talking about.n Most of these seem like a unique choice, but they are by no means "bizzarre" or "outrageous". I mean, not only the Travolta/Newton-John thing, but what's so "bizzarre" about Justin Beiber and Mariah Carey doing a song together? John Denver and the Muppets? He's got so much of a 'plain white toast' reputation, that the Muppets would seem like a natural pairing. Hell, if you want to put John Denver in the list, change it from Christmas songs to overall pairings and talk about him hanging out with Dee Snider to fight for the right to say 'fark you' in your songs, now THAT was a truly bizzarre pairing.

ANd there is nothing "bizzarre" about Dean Martin and Scarlett Johannson doing a song(even though he's dead), it's been going on for years, back to Natalie Cole doing it. The only slightly weird part is just that I didn't know Scarlett could sing.

Gulper Eel: Leon Redbone and Dr. John: Frosty the Snowman


Anything either one of them has done is brilliant. This rendition simply doubles the brilliance.
