Mustard and relish, peanut butter and honey, havarti and dill, Absolut Mandarin and sour, books and tea.... life is full of great pairings. Some are pleasing to the tongue, some are comforting, and others are magical to listen to.
There is nothing more pleasing to the ear, than two unique musicians coming together, making something neither one could have done on their own. I'm not talking those who always perform together as a group, they have already learned to blend their skills together. I'm talking about those pairings that come together to make one or two songs together, and they aren't always an obvious fit. Most of the time the result is glorious, sometimes it's not something either one of them should be proud of.
Today, I'm going to share with you some of my favorite duets. I hope you like them as much as I do.
