I love a good duet, and after seeing Manic Street Preachers play Little Baby Nothing last night, I thought I’d ask the boards to throw their favourites into the fray.
Few of mine below.
Manic Street Preachers - Little Baby Nothing
Scout Niblett (Feat. Will Oldham) - Kiss
NOFX - Lori Meyers
I guess this one isn’t technically a duet, as it just moves from one singer to the next, but it is a fucking banger anyway.
I’m sure I’ll think of more later, but off the top of my head:
The Smashing Pumpkins - “Sad Peter Pan” (Vic Chesnutt cover featuring Red Red Meat)
Twilight Singers - “Into the Street” (the debut album \is full of great ones)
The Smashing Pumpkins - “Said Sadly” (James Iha and Nina Gordon)
Twilight Singers - “Number Nine” (Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan)
Mad Season - “Long Gone Day” (Mark Lanegan, Layne Staley)
Deftones - “Passenger” (Chino and Maynard)
Never pass up a chance to post this beauty:
Nancy and Lee have a cracking collection of duets. Maybe my favourite:
You can’t fuck with this as a choice, it’s excellent. Also, to go with the OP, more Manics.
Your Love Alone Is Not Enough
(I love how happy James looks in this video)
