This isn't necessarily my fav or 10th fav, I couldn't decide. The one in the op is one of my favs too.

Imagine being a Pogues virgin! To have never heard those dulcet tones before!

She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

So very beautiful. Why Ms Minogue chose to record those other dreadful songs is beyond me when she is clearly capable of so much more.

Still love "Under Pressure" but lack the nouce to post it up successfully.

Never mind Pogues virginity, I never even had Pogues education class in school.

The horror! How do you achieve adulthood without experiencing McGowan's musical magistry?

That's quite gorgeous. And thru that video I serendipitously found another duet by Cave, with a somewhat more likely partner:

Two scottish duets I like, doing the same track. Original first.







"For rulers like to lay down laws,
And rebels like to break them,
And the poor priests like to walk in chains,
And God likes to forsake them."
I don’t think we’re for anything, we’re just products of evolution. You can say “Gee, your life must be pretty bleak if you don’t think there’s a purpose,” but I’m anticipating a good lunch.

If there's a duet that rocks better than this one, I want to know about it:
