I think it's best to start with the mighty Barbra. She does such a fine line in duets. Barbra and Barry Gibb, Guilty. I don't think there could be a finer pairing in their matching white outfits. I adore this song, it's like listening to molten honey.
Barbra and Donna Summer! No More Tears (Enough is Enough) which has one of the best opening lines to a song ever...
And one of my all-time favourites, her duet with Frank Sinatra. This isn't the best version but if you buy the Frank Sinatra duets album (which I highly recommend) then you can hear this in all its glory.
Speaking of Frank, his duet with Bono, I've Got You Under My Skin. I can forgive Bono everything for this one song, he is so sexy.
Moving on from Frank to Patti Labelle and Michael McDonald with the marvellous On My Own. I never tire of listening to this.
Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney, The Girl Is Mine. This is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine, I have always loved it even though it's stupidly cheesy.
Kanye West and Jamie Foxx. I admit this is a little left field for me but this is a great song. The lyrics are so clever.
You all know my love for George Michael but I've never been one for his duets however I do love this one with Mary J Blige.
I finish with clearly the greatest duet ever recorded. Islands in the Stream. No explanation is necessary.
Tell me your favourites.
