I love a good duet. It's no surprise that two of my favorite songs of all time (The Dears's "27: The Death of All Romance" and Hayes Carll & Cary Ann Hearst's "Someone Like You") are duets, so I figured this would be a good week to highlight some duets given the surprise of Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino singing on the new Weezer song "Go Away." With the exception of The Dears, I tried to keep the songs to surprising collaborations (like Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johannsen or Jack White and Alicia Keyes) or interesting combinations (Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris, Taylor Swift and Gary Lightbody). I also expect this to be the last time Taylor Swift makes one of these mixes.
With that said, enjoy!
