It’s not often that you get really good rock duets. But when you do, they’re quite awesome!
1. …Said Sadly by the Smashing Pumpkins (James Iha featuring Nina Gordon)
Rock ‘n’ roll + rock ‘n’ roll: This is a B-Side of the Smashing Pumpkins single Bullet with Butterfly Wings, from their 1995 double album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. The song was written and sung by James Iha. Nina Gordon, formerly of Veruca Salt, sings opposite James.
EMI doesn’t allow any videos of the song on Youtube to play in the Philippines, so we turn to Dailymotion once again. There is no official video for it, and this is the ONLY video of it in Dailymotion.
2. Good Morning Baby by Bic Runga and Dan Wilson
Pop + rock ‘n’ roll: This one’s from the soundtrack of the 1999 movie, American Pie. I think it was specifically recorded for the movie by Bic Runga and Semisonic front man Dan Wilson.
3. Virginia Moon by Foo Fighters featuring Norah Jones
Rock ‘n’ roll + jazz: This song came out in the Foo Fighters’ 2007 double album, In Your Honor. It was also included in Norah Jones’ 2010 album aptly titled Featuring.
Here’s an interview clip of Norah Jones and the Foo Fighters about the song.
And here’s the song!
