  1. Hello!

    She&Him – Why do you let me stay here?
    The Weepies – World spins madly on
    The Moldy Peaches – Anyone else but you
    Bryan Adams & Mel C – When you’re gone
    Ryan Adams (feat Kim Richey) – Come pick me up

    I know I have both Ryan and Bryan Adams, but they’re both good. And I never thought I’d recommend anything to do with the Spice Girls, but this was the one song involving any of them that I actually thought was good!

    And actually the same guy again: Snow Patrol and Martha Wainwright – Set the fire to the third bar

    Hmm I can only ever think of one or two songs and then I lose patience.

  12. I don’t have 5, but one of my favorite duets of all time Is interlude by Morrissey and Siouxsie Sioux. It’s dark, but unbelievably beautiful.
