Who are the #MusicMovesMe bloggers? We are bloggers who blog about music each Monday. Every other week we have a theme, and on alternate weeks, we can blog about any music we wish. First, there is XmasDolly, Her co-conductors are: ♥Callie of JAmerican Spice♥, and ♥Stacy of Stacy Uncorked♥ Also, co-conducting is ♥Cathy from Curious as a Cathy♥ . And finally, there's me.
<!-- end LinkyTools script —> Our honorary co-host for November is Stacy of Stacy Uncorked. Her theme for today is "Unconventional Duets" for example, Country-Pop Crossover duets, or duets by artists from different genres you wouldn't expect to collaborate together.
So....I may end up deviating a bit but here are my selections.
Would anyone have dreamed that the collaborations between Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett would be such a success? The musical chemistry between them is unmistakable, as Lady Gaga crosses genres into the standards catagory with "The Lady is a Tramp".
Speaking of Lady Gaga, how about this duet with Sting "King of Pain"?
One of my favorite duets - Eddie Money and Ronnie Spector (of the Ronettes) in "Take Me Home Tonight" from 1986. This song contains elements of the Ronettes "Be My Baby" from 1963.
It's Only Love - Bryan Adams and Tina Turner. Whether this fits the category I'm not sure, but I love it.
And finally - thanks to a fellow blogger, John Holton, a small tribute to the late Tony Joe White - a duet with him and the Foo Fighters on Dave Letterman's show - Polk Salad Annie.
And that's a wrap for today!
