The Oddest Musical Pairings

Recommended Posts

Link to NPR's All Songs Considered podcast about strange duets, and to the earlier blog post that kicked off the discussion.

Some of the odd pairings they mention: Bing Crosby and David Bowie, Allison Krauss and Robert Plant, Run DMC and Aerosmith, Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue, and William Shatner and Ben Folds. (The stories have links/videos of all of these duets, and more.)

There's a mashup of Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" and Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1YABGdai5k.

Wow, that was -- wow. Awesome. I'd buy that for a dollar.

There's a lot of 'Teen Spirit' mash-ups out there, apparently.

And then there's this one, which I promise is the first version of the song I heard.

Well, not quite a mashup, but here is a Playmobil video for Joy Division's Transmission

"...the vivid crossing of borders between film and theology may save the film from the banality of cinema and festival business, and it may also save the church from the deep sleep of the habitual and the always known."

Not a mash-up, exactly, but...
