Show you my explosion

This reviewer in Chart Attack liked watching Alison Krauss and Robert Plant together in Toronto. In fact he had a suggestion for how to have multiple duet fun!

The whole thing really makes you wonder what other collaborations are out there waiting to happen. Personally, I'd love to see Burnett get Iggy Pop and Nancy Sinatra together for a record. But for now, I can handle Plant and Krauss.

I bet Iggy Pop would love to sing with Nancy Sinatra, as well. They both had a song about boots, so they have common ground. I'm no Lamb Chop Burnett but I think this would be happening.

Iggy: Sweet 16 in leather boots
Body and soul, I go crazy
Baby, baby I'm a hungry, sweet 16
Funky bar all full of faces
Pretty faces, beautiful faces
Body and soul, body and soul
I give to you
Nancy: You keep playin' where you shouldn't be a playin
and you keep thinkin' that you´ll never get burnt.
These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.
Iggy: I must be hungry 'cause I go crazy
Over your leather boots
Now baby I know...
That's not normal
But I love you, I love you
I love you, sweet 16
Nancy: Are you ready boots? Start walkin'!

Iggy Pop, Sweet Sixteen

Nancy Sinatra, 1966, These Boots Are Made For Walkin'

The most destructive duet was between Lemmy and Wendy O'Williams of the Plasmatics, and their cover of 'Stand By Your Man'. Not only did they murder the tune for all generations to come, they killed Motorhead. The record's producer, Motorhead's guitarist Eddie Clarke, was so traumatised by the experience, he quit the band, never to return.
