I've always wondered why the BSO has never recorded duets. Take Duane Eddie, Jerry Lee Lewis, BB King, Paul McCartney... I think it could be great. What do you think?

BSO has recorded 4 duets (maybe more ? Correct if I'm wrong...): Joe Strummer, Gwen Stefani, Ann Margrett and Julie Setzer... This said, others could be great : Amy Winehouse of course !

My favourite film is SOME LIKE IT HOT.

I would love to hear BSO kick out the song RUNNING WILD that MM sings on the train to Florida.
Of course it would need some Blonde Beauty to take vocals on that one.......Mrs Setzer fits the role perfectly.

On track called "Guitar Slinger" in the album "Guitar Slinger" (japanese version, summer 1995, nine months before european & US versions). Fantastic song sung by Brian & Joe !

I think Jerry Lee Lewis would be an option. He loves good quality sound, so Brian Stzer does..It would sound fantastic.

Y'see, i'd love some off the wall duets. how about Morrissey? Kaiser Chiefs? Kid Rock? Eminem? Madonna, .Don't you dare laugh at me, these are all possible good collaborations y'know? Who else... mmm let's see... Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr (now THAT would be great), Amy Winehouse, Alison Krauss, Dinah Krall (those last three, you need to be English to understand).

Robbie Williams

PostSubject: When does a duet become a collaboration   Tue Feb 12, 2008 5:29 pm

Cos, Mr S has done stuff with Bryan Adams, Dave Edmunds, Ricky Skaggs, Twisted Sister (sorry, that wsn't vocal, so doesn't count as a duet i guess). I'd love to hear him with the original King of the New york Street (Dion). That guy has rocked since the 50's and he just keeps getting better and better, Yo Frankie needs to be heard by every Stray cats fan...

Diana Krall is an excellent choice, Mikey. Jane Moneheit would be cool too. (I probably spelled her name wrong).

Yeah well, I spelled Diana Krall wrong. Who cares how you spell 'em, jane Monaheit (or however you spell ti) would sound great with Brian johnny

I have this horrid collection of odd tunes called "When Pigs Fly," and a featured duet is Ani Di Franco and Jackie Chan singing "Unforgettable." So nothing's impossible when it comes to musical collaborations!

(The album also includes Lesley Gore singin' "Dirty Deeds (Done Dirt Cheap)" and Don Ho(!) performing "Shock the Monkey.")

I know this is going to seem obvious since it's coming from me, but...well, I would like to hear Brian duet with Elvis. C'mon! If American Idol can bring Elvis "to life" on tv with Celine Dion, Brian can duet with him!

I wonder what their voices would sound like together? They have similar big, manly voices. Sigh.

It was just a thought....

Tony Bennett might be pretty cool on the right song.

Another interesting possibility might be Harry Connick Jr- He can rock out pretty good on the ivories when he wants to and has a great voice that would fit in great with the BSO sound.

Absolutely! Setzer and Lester! The sequel to the great Chester and Lester (Chet Atkins and Les Paul) album from 3 decades ago.

Suggestions

Male: Colin James and in agreement with an earlier comment - Dion DiMucci

Female: Sam Browne daughter of Joe Browne and another rockin' daughter - Kim Wilde daughter of Marty Wilde (some of you non European cats might not know them Question )

The same Kim Wilde that had a couple of hits here in the U.S. back in the early '80s?
