When the movie Duets came out and I heard Gwyneth Paltrow was singing in it, I remember thinking, "Oh come on, world! Gorgeous hair and she can sing?! That's not fair." Well, that was then and this is now — and the world has responded. Or at least the editors of Spinner.com have. Don't shoot the messenger here, but they declared Gwyneth's "Cruisin" duet with Huey Lewis "the worst vocal collaboration of all time." Ouch.
Second worst? Paula Abdul's duet with MC Skat Kat for her hit single "Opposites Attract," which I take issue with because if that duet never happened then we wouldn't have this video. At No. 3 is Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson's "The Girl Is Mine," followed by Bono and Frank Sinatra singing "I've Got You Under My Skin" in fourth. The duet in fifth place cracks me up: Willie Nelson and Julio Iglesias, "To All The Girls I've Loved Before."
So, do you agree with the top five? Did anyone like Gwyneth's singing? For the rest of the top ten (I have a feeling some of you will object to No. 10 and I think No. 7 has no business on this list) and a clip of "Cruisin," read more
Music moves me. It speaks to me, and sometimes it's not a good beat I need, but rather a beautiful melody and lyrics to get me going. There's also something special about two voices singing together, so I've compiled a list of my favorite duets. This playlist begins and ends with two walking songs, and then alternates between sappy (yes, somewhat cheesy, I'll admit) love songs and peppy upbeat tunes. So you can switch it up between walking and running.
