These Unlikely Duets Should Record More Songs Together

Bada Bing Bowie
Best of both worlds
- Why it works: It’s a classic meeting of the minds that transcends the generation gap of the 1970’s. Equal parts bizarre, surreal, mainstream and epic, two of the biggest figures in pop-culture participate in a heartfelt Christmas miracle. At a time when Bowie was struggling to “normalize” his career, the glam rocker joins forces with the most famous crooner of all-time to produce the weirdest (and most celebrated) Christmas duet we’ve ever come across.
- Other hits they should record: Unfortunately, Bing Crosby passed away in 1977 so it won’t be an easy to get him into any recording studio… the closest thing we’ll ever get to getting the band back together is a FunnyOrDie satire featuring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.
