Top 10 weirdest musical duets
A couple of nights ago, we had the absolute pleasure of seeing William Shatner and Lin Yu Chun do a rendition of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" on Lopez Tonight that made our hearts cream with loving ecstasy. We have no clue what to actually think of Lin Yu Chin (other than that the internet seems to think he's the next Susan Boyle), but we're pretty certain that William Shatner doing pretty much anything musical is comedy gold. Either way, it got us to thinking about ten of our favorite weird ass duets.
10. David Bowie and Marianne Faithfull - "I Got You Babe": It was going to be this or David Bowie and Bing Crosby. We picked this one because the costumes are significantly better. What the hell is on Marianne Faithfull's head, and when did she find time to loan it out to Lady Gaga?
09. Natalie Cole and Nat King Cole - "Unforgettable": Nothing weird about doing a duet with your dad right? I mean, people do that all the time; we sing songs with our dads and --- wait -- what? He's dead? (!) Oh god.
08. Eminem and Elton John - "Stan": This isn't so much a duet really as a team-up. Either way, it was meant to be strange and shocking, and we're pretty sure it works on that level. On any other level? Not so much.
07. Al Green and Lyle Lovett - "Funny How Time Slips Away": Anything that Lyle Lovett does is going to be a little strange, but teaming up with Al Green sounds like a recipe for disaster. And guess what? It is. It's like these two had read our minds when we where thinking about terrible potential duets.
06. Bone Thug-N-Harmony and Phil Collins - "Take Me Home": We can't actually say anything about Bone Thugs-N-Harmony without thinking about the weird girl that used a lot hairspray and had the locker next to us with a Bone Thugs photo on the inside. So instead, we'll just point out that this songs is terrible, and Phil Collins sounds like he's in a reverb chamber on Mars.
