    Duets You Never Want To Hear

    To complement Charlie's beautiful and well-formed double-bill game, how about a thread on unlikely musical combos? I'll start:

    Iron Butterfly and Ricky Martin, doing In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida Loca

    That should be easy to top...

    Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney singing a crappy song about racial harmony.

    Oh?

    Not actual horrible duets, then?

    Another contribution from the Department of Redundancy Department... thank you very much, Peanut O'Gallery! (true, though... along with anyone dubbing their voices into their dead father's recordings. I'm looking at you, Natalie and Bocephus!)

    Now then, back to the heavy lifting:

    Captain and Tennille, with Joy Division:
    Love Will Keep Us Together and Tear Us Apart

    Led Zeppelin and Duran Duran, singing D'Yer Rio Mak'er (ewwww).

    (I know, I know, it's pronounced like "Jamaica", but all through adolescence, I thought of it as "Dire Maker")
