You forgot Sting and Paul Simon.
 
2014-01-05 09:26:17 PM  
You went with Billy Joel and Elton John, instead of Billy Joel and Ray Charles?
 
2014-01-05 11:30:42 PM  
Thanks subby, I hadn't heard of the Plant/Krauss album, downloading it now.

Neither of them can't see?

None three of them.

I did dig Stevie Wonder's recent collaboration with PJ Morton not unexpected just nice, going to be interesting to hear the Daft Punk remixes of his stuff.

Only One Ft. Stevie Wonder

//but seriously, how did this not become the wedding song of 2013? or Love is more then a Wedding Day by Cody Chesnutt

David Bowie and NIN

But really ... David Bowie plus any musician is awesome.  He's like bacon is to food.

Buried on a somewhat-forgotten 90s movie soundtrack, but for those who would be interested, Slayer and Ice-T got together for a medley of Exploited covers, during the Body Count era.
It kicks all kind of ass.
 
2014-01-06 06:30:05 AM  
Also, here's Mike Patton and Norah Jones.
Note: surprisingly NSFW lyrics for Norah
(probably should have dropped an NSFW note for the Slayer/Ice-T one too, but I figure you pretty much expect it from that duo)
 
2014-01-06 06:33:37 AM  
Not surprising, but here's Bruce Dickinson and Rob Halford.
(Not any less surprising than Billy and Elton, imho, though)

Missed Johnny Cash with _________ (never a bad combo).

That said, this should be interesting.

Same with Alison Krauss.  Her voice blends to anyone and she is so confident that second chair doesn't bother her.

His cover of Redemption Song with Joe Strummer was terrific.

Elton John & Leon Russell was more unexpected.
 
2014-01-06 07:24:35 AM  

batlock666: Elton John & Leon Russell was more unexpected.


Yeah that was an actual surprise. And quite good.

I can see where Stevie and Daft Punk are going from the same place if you think of the Stevie who was so experimental in the early 70s.

batlock666: Elton John & Leon Russell was more unexpected.


More unexpected than:

Elton John and RuPaul?
Elton John and Eminem?
Elton John and Renate Blaue?

David Bowie and Mick Jagger.


After Angie Bowie told everyone, David and Mick doing something else together is hardly unexpected.

Everything goes with Stevie. I don't think there is a genre he couldn't pull off if he set his mind to it.

What about Elton John and Eminem at the Grammys a few years back? How about all the artist doing Glenn Campbell songs last year or the year before?
 
2014-01-06 08:23:51 AM  
Billie Joe Armstrong & Norah Jones doing an Everly Brothers covers album was weird too.
 
2014-01-06 08:36:13 AM  
Phil Collins & Eric Clapton Bone Thugs-N-Harmony

Fixed for subby.

and of course the single greatest oddball pairing ever,
Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra - Some Velvet Morning.

TFA says it's their first US performance, but didn't DAft Punk perform at the MTV awards? Three was that whole dust-up with Colbert.

rukusrazor: The entire "Judgment Night" Soundtrack

[www.sonicyouth.com image 550x488]


Created a whole genre (whether rap-rock is worthwhile is another discussion). A bizarrely important album, culturally speaking. Good call!

No, Rap-Rock was created in the mid-1980s with Run-DMC/Aerosmith's "Walk this Walk" (which also revived Aerosmith's stalled career.)

That's a great album

Her voice is pure liquid aural sex.
/And single malt.

Bruce Hornsby and Spike Lee?

Bruce and Tupac?  (although that was really sampling and not collaberation)

The only one that surprised me in the headline was Plant & Krauss. When I first heard they were doing an album together, I couldn't quite wrap my head around how it would work. Then I bought it. It was brilliant.

How's this for unexpected? Richard Thompson & Pere Ubu's David Thomas. Known as "David Thomas and The Pedestrians". Downright bizarre. I love it.

It's awesome.

Mostly because of T-Bone, not Plant/Krauss
