    Favorite top 3 duets

    Singing duets is more fashionable in country and rap music genre than rock music, but duets is rock music are more momorable.

    Not in any particulare order:

    1. "Under Pressure" by Queen and david Bowie. The sampling from this song made Vanilla Ice famous with his hit "Ice Ice Baby".


    2. "Don't Give Up" by Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush. One of best song in Peter Gabriel's So album.


    3. "Ebony and Ivory" by Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder. Excellent song about racial harmony.


    It also might be worth mentioning the song "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Elton John and Kiki Dee. But it had been played on the radio so many times that we might just leave it as a footnote to this post

    Thanks noddin0ff as I just finished listening to it. Excellent holiday song. But between me and you, nobody can out sing Bing Crosby vocally

    Here's one of my favorites:



    I also like just about any duet with EmmyLou Harris. She has an uncanny knack for harmony and always makes the other person sound better than they really are.

    Wait, you picked Ebony & Ivory but Don't Go Breakin My Heart is overplayed?

    Some duets are more tolerable than others, while others...

    But unlike DGBMH, Ebony & Ivory carry a peace message
