    Elton John & The Spice Girls - Don't Go Breaking My Heart
    LiLana & Snoop Dogg - Dime Piece

    It's not obscure, but it's only just dawned on me how surreal that Robbie Williams / Nicole Kidman duet was. What. The. Eff.
     
  7. Deuce featuring actress Sherrie Hewson "Life On the Street" from some Coronation St album.
     
  8. Elton John & Cliff Richard - Slow Rivers.

    Two of the biggest stars in chart history, together on a pretty decent single from 1986. It missed the Top 40. Although its sales weren't too bad in the end, as it hung around the bottom half of the Top 75 for about 2 months.

    EG.
     
  9. Madonna & Prince - Love Song.
     
  10. Jessica Simpson & Marc Anthony - There You Were (I don't know why, but I love that song).
     
  11. Marc Almond has done many duets with different people.

    Gene Pitney
    P J Proby
    Sarah Cracknell
    Siouxsie Sioux
    Nico

    among many

    But my favorite is a track called 'This House Is A House Of Trouble' with Sally Timms from the Mekons...... Love the bitchy lyrics of this one..... just brilliant

  12. Speaking of Siouxise, very few people seem to mention the Morrissey duet - "Interlude" - from the mid-90s when either act is discussed.

    EG.

    Jessica Simpson & Destiny's Child - Woman In Me was rather random as well.
     
  14. Bonnie Tyler & Todd Rundgren - Loving You's A Dirty Job But Somebody's Gotta Do It

    Gotta love a Jim Steinman eight-minute power ballad with a 12-word title.
     
  15. CĂ©line Dion and Peabo Bryson - Beauty And the Beast.
     
  16. Excellent song and there's an even better extended version on the CD single that prolongs the heavenly instrumental for about 3 to 4 minutes of total bliss!
     
  17. It is indeed a beautiful song. It's funny as I only rediscovered this song last week when digging out some old CD singles.

    Another interesting but maybe not obscure duet was Nick Cave And Kylie Minogue with the rather Beautiful and melancholic 'Where The Wild Roses Grow'.
     
  18. whitney houston & enrique iglesias - could i have this kiss
