Two for tea and tea for two … here’s some songs just for you (and you):
Loretta Lynn and Jack White. God, Transman loves Loretta! Jack is pretty damn cool, too. Put them together and it’s a flannel and organza festorgasm.
Ray Charles and Willie Nelson. One of the great duets before Willie started doing them with anyone who would give him $3. Ray’s vocals are totally full of passion in this version.
Sinead O’Connor and Shane MacGowan. Sinead’s voice is angelic and fragile and good ol’ Shane sounds like a train wrecking. If you like this, Shane & Nick Cave are worth checking out.
Tom Waits and Loretta’s little sister, Crystal Gayle, make a surprisingly good pair. Her honeyed vocals are a wonderful contrast to his rasp.
Elvis Costello and Chet Baker. Okay, not strictly a vocal duet, but a lovely version of “You Don’t Know What Love Is.”
Go forth … enjoy the weekend.
