Cool Collabos: Daryl Hall & Rumer

Taken from Mr. Hall’s TV show, Live From Daryl’s House, comes a duet between the Hall & Oats singer and British songstress Rumer. The two vocalists put a very mellow, easy listening radio spin on the 1970s William DeVaughn classic “Be Thankful For What You Got“.

Cool Collabos: James Brown & Luciano Pavarotti

brown-pavarotti
The inaugural post of the Cool Collabos segment of this blog features a duet by two music powerhouses from entirely different musical universe’s: James Brown (who died six years ago on Christmas day) and Luciano Pavarotti. There was no reason that a combining of the voices of The Godfather of Soul and the Cavaliere di Gran Croce should have created such a powerful and downright cool version of Brown’s “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” but it is damn cool and very quickly became my favorite rendition of this song.
