In recognition of The Duets Album, a two-disc set featuring some of the best-known duets, Morar Consulting conducted a poll — and the 1981 Queen and David Bowie collaboration of Under Pressure was voted the most popular duet.
Diana Ross and Lionel Ritchie’s Endless Love came second, followed by Kenny Rodgers and Dolly Parton’s Islands in the Stream.
Other notable duets on the album include:
- Paul McCartney & Stevie Wonder – Ebony and Ivory
- Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush – Don’t Give Up
- Elton John & Kiki Dee – Don’t Go Breaking My Heart
- Sonny & Cher – I Got You Babe
- Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes – Up Where We Belong
- Billy Preston & Syreeta – With You I’m Born Again
- Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell – Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing
- Patty Smyth & Don Henley – Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough
I have to say, my favourite duet is from Grease because it’s one of the best songs to dance to at a summer wedding – Sarah
