Best duets

  1. How come nobody has said "If I Can Dream" by Elvis and Celine Dion on Idol?
    I'm just joking, though the effect was pretty cool.

    "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" was a Diana Ross solo record. It was also done in a far better version by Marvin and Tammi (although their best duet was "You're All I Need To Get By").

    Double J, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell hit the charts with "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" first. Diana Ross followed with a similar - and pretty compelling - version of it not too long after she left the Supremes. The Gaye/Terrell was more straightforward, while Ross' version had the spoken word passages.

    (On that last point of yours, though, yeah ... I think "You're All I Need To Get By" edges "Your Precious Love." Barely.)
