like duets by artists that are not specific to love songs. Though Willie Nelson and Julio Englesis' To All the Girls I've Loved before may be listed as a romantic or love song, I meant are you limiting your songs to thinks like Barbara Streisand and Barry Gibb Who's Sorry Now Barbara Streisand and Bryan Adams I Finally Found Someone Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black When I Said I Do Linda Rondstat and James Ingram Somewhere Out There or do you also like other types of duets such as Waylon and Willie Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys Kid Rock and Hank Williams Jr Family Tradition or the F Word What are some of your favorites? Some I like are Bon Jovi and Jennifer Nettles Who Says You Can't Go Home David Bowie & Mick Jagger Dancing in the Streets Reba McEntire & Linda Davis Does He Love You Reba McEntire & Vince Gill The Heart Won't Lie Faith Hill & Tim McGraw It's Your Love Boyz II Men & Mirah Carey One Sweet Day Brad Paisely & Allison Krauss Whiskey Lullabye And many more. So what are your favorites?

You mentioned some that I really do like. Some are Whisky Lullaby, Somewhere Out There, Mammas Don't Let your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys, Family Traditions, and The Heart Won't Lie. Some others that I like are: Little Drummer Boy: David Bowie and Bing Crosby (very unusual duet) Next Time I fall In Love: Amy Grant and Peter Cetera Romeo: Dolly Parton, Billy Ray Cyrus and others I'm blanking on To All The Girls I loved Before: Julio Iglasias (spelling) and Willie Nelson Perhaps Love: John Denver and Placido Domingo Islands In The Stream: Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers Can we tell I listen to a lot of country music? I'm sure there are more but I'm blanking on other duets that I like. Ever have that happen? Go to answer something and boom it leaves your brain?

I love the Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy by David Bowie and Bing Crosby, it is among my favorite christmas songs. I liked some that you mentioned, Peter Cetera and Amy Grant's Next Time I fall in Love. I didn't mention Dolly Parton's Romeo though it is a favorite song because it to many singers in it for it to be a duet. The song was recorded by Dolly Parton, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea, Tanya Tucker, Pam Tillis, and Billy Ray Cyrus. It is a good video as well, have you seen the video for it? I also listen to a lot of country music, and yes there are a lot more, I liked also I will Alway Love as a duet with Dolly Parton and Vince Gill, I know she did this as a single and then Whitney Houston did it as a single, but I like the duet with Vince Gill. Another good country song is Not Too Much to Ask with Joe Diffee and Mary Chapin Carpenter Vince Gill and Faith Hill Message in a Bottle, Vince Gill and LeAnne Womack, I Keep Forgetting, Vince Gill and Trisha Yearwood This Memory of You. useless trivia, When Amy Grant was recording House of Love, she was a huge Vince Gill fan, never meet him, turns out he was buying the property behind her manager's and she couldn't get the song recorded because she couldn't hit a note that was to high for her. So her manager talked to Vince Gill and kind of did an over the fence meet and greet for Amy Grant to meet him. After talking with him he agreed to do the song with her. He could hit the notes she couldn't his range is so varied that he can go low, or high. He did it first try, she had been trying for over a week. Another good song from the Prince of Egypt Nashville cd which is hard to find hardly anyone has heard of it, is Randy Travis and Linda Davis Make it Through.

Yeah I wasn't sure on Romeo either but figured it couldn't hurt to list it. I love the song and the video for it. Vince Gill has done a lot of duets hasn't he? He's a great singer though and I've liked all the ones I've heard. I'm horrible of matching names and songs together. I love the songs from the Prince of Egypt. I agree finding the CD for it isn't easy. Same with Quest for Camelot. That does remind me of another duet though, "I got you babe" By Sonny and Cher (they poked fun at it in Quest for Camelot during a duet).

I have the Quest For Camelot Cd, yes I remember when the dragons, or is dragon sang, I got You Babe or rather they twisted it around If I Didn't Have You - Eric Idle & Don Rickles and this was beautiful Looking Through Your Eyes - The Corrs & Bryan White.

Good songs, most of Vince Gill's duets are top of the list he has such a range in his vocal ability that he can sing anything.

It is Faith Hill and Puff Daddy, I'll Be Missing You. There were a few artists that did musical duets with country singers. Talent is talent I suppose and genre doesn't enter into it.
