One I would like to have heard would be "Portrait of My Love" by Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy. For one that might actually be possible, how about Bobbie Gentry and Willie Nelson doing her "Bugs."

I’m sorry but it’s got to be anything done by Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga.

I would not mind hearing them together, I bet they could create some good music. It was just something with her and Tony that I couldn’t get into,

I liked that song for a long time. But, I never knew who did it. Never would have guessed that pair. Finally I know. Thanks.

Here's another unlikely combo whose musical styles really work well together. Maybe it's because they have some basic Celtic inspired roots. I've always been a fan of both and love this album, too!

 

All the Road Running - Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris

 

Here's a sample -

 

 

 

It's great to be here. It's great to be anywhere. - Keith Richards

NOT A FAN OF EITHER- BUT THIS SONG- WOW! IT REMINDED ME OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE DUETS: JIMMIE DALE GILMORE& LUCINDA WILLIAMS-"REUNION". HE HAS AN ETHEREAL VOICE & A STYLE IN A CLASS BY HIMSELF; HER VOICE SOUNDS TO ME LIKE TEXAS - WHISKEY & HONEY

WHO WOULD WE MOST LIKE TO HEAR WILLIE SING WITH? TONY BENNETT, BOB DYLAN,... MICK JAGGER?

THAT IS A GOOD ONE- HRE'S AN ACTUAL DUET/ACTUALLY TRIO:
TOM WAITS( OKAY, I ADMIT I'M HUNG ON HIM!) WITH KEITH RICHARDS & MICK JAGGER?- ON "BAD AS ME" CD. WOULD THE TRAVELING WILBURYS COUNT AS ONE OF YOUR SUPER GROUPS? HOW ABOUT THE HIGHWAYMEN?

Most definitely! Maybe super-super groups is more appropriate!

We're on the same wavelength. I was thinking Ray Charles and Willie Nelson.
