    I would have mentioned the Springsteen-Browne duet on "Racing in the Street" and the Springsteen-Vedder duet on "Better Man" from that night (I was front row for that show ...although way off to the right side). I would have also mentioned all the great Springsteen concert duets over the years as well, but I thought they were sticking to official releases only.

    Depending on how we define duets:

    Regulate, Warren G/Nate Dogg
    I Got A Man, Positive K/Positive K's voice synthesized to sound like a chick, or so the story goes1.

    1 -- Not to be confused with "I'm Not Having It", which he did with MC Lyte ... unless MC Lyte is actually Positive K's female-synthed voice and they just hired a woman to lip-sync it a la Milli Vanilli and the woman who sang on "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)" who apparently was too fat to be shown in the video. God, the 90's were so fucking lame.

    Couldn't the entire catalogs of music by Hall & Oates, Indigo Girls, and the Righteous Brothers be considered duets?

    Considering a duet is a man and a woman (duo is two of the same):

    "Leather and Lace" by Stevie Nicks and Don Henley

    "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" by Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty

    "What Kind of Fool?" by Barbra Streisand and Barry Gibb

    Good choices.
    However, a duet doesn't have to be a man & a woman.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/duet gives definitions from multiple sources...no definition of duet specifies it has to be a man & a woman.

    From Dictionary.com Unabridged (v 1.1)
    a musical composition for two voices or instruments.

    From American Heritage Dictionary
    1. Music
    1. A composition for two voices or two instruments.
    2. A group of two singers or two instrumentalists.
    2. A pair.

    From wordnet:
    1. two items of the same kind
    2. two performers or singers who perform together
    3. a pair who associate with one another; "the engaged couple"; "an inseparable twosome" [syn: couple]
    4. a musical composition for two performers
    5. (ballet) a dance for two people (usually a ballerina and a danseur noble) [syn: pas de deux]

    Willie and Merle on "Pancho and Lefty"

    Eddie Vedder and Neil Young on "Long Road" and "Rockin' in the Free World"

    Emmylou Harris and just about anyone. Some of her best harmonizing work has been with Ryan Adams, particularly on "Sweet Carolina" and "Return of the Grievous Angel."

    If we're including rap, Snoop and Dre need to be mentioned several times...

    Nice call on "Hunger Strike"
