The Prize For Most Awkward Duet Goes To...

Duets sometimes soar, othertimes they crash hard to the earth.  Some just haunt you forever. 

The latter is how the oddball Christmas combination of Bing Crosby and David Bowie still hits me.  Recorded in September on 1977, Bing Crosby's 42nd and final Christmas special aired on November 30th, 1977.

Bringing Bowie on was was Bing's attempt to make his career more mainstream, more normal. Instead, the glam-rocker's duet with the legendary crooner Crosby resulted in one of the strangest moments of both of their careers.

Agreed. Have a listen for yourself and check out some of the other odd duets I've dug up.
