My Top 10 Duets :: Friday Music Theme

10. Dream a Little Dream :: Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

“Stars shining bright above you;
night breezes seem to whisper ‘I love you’.
Birds singing in the sycamore tree,
dream a little dream of me.”

9. Nothing Better :: The Postal Service

“Don’t you feed me lines about some idealistic future,
your heart won’t heal right if you keep tearing out the sutures.”

8. You Don’t Know Me :: Ben Folds & Regina Spektor

“If I’m the person that you think I am,
clueless chump you seem to think I am,
so easily led astray,
an errant dog who occasionally escapes and needs a shorter leash, then –
why the fuck would you want me back?!”


7. Poison & Wine :: The Civil Wars

“Your mouth is poison,
your mouth is wine.
You think your dreams are the same as mine.”

6. Haunted :: Sinead O’Connor & Shane MacGowen

“All the girls asks “what’s he like?”
I says, he’s kind of shy
But that’s the kind of girl I am,
He’s my kind of guy


5. Paper Girl :: July Talk

“And if you want money in your coffee,
if you want secrets in your tea –
keep your paper heart away from me.”

4. Set Fire to the Third Bar :: Snow Patrol & Martha Wainwright

“I’m miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
I, I pray that something picks me up,
and sets me down in your warm arms.”


3. Portland, Oregon :: Loretta Lynn & Jack White

“Next day we knew last night got drunk,
but we loved enough for the both of us.
In the morning when the night had sobered up,
it was much too late for the both of us in Oregon.”

2. Can’t Stand Me Now :: The Libertines

“If you wanna try,
if you wanna try,

there’s no worse you could do, oh oh oh.
I know you lie,
I know you lie.

I’m still in love with you.”

1. Falling Slowly :: Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova

“Take this sinking boat and point it home,
we’ve still got time.”

Glen Hansard and Markéta IrglovÃ
