    Good/Bad/Oddest Collaberations From Different Genres and/or Generations

    This is a wide umbrella but there have been some interesting/odd collabertions over the years in the world of music. And by collaberations, it could mean working on an album or song together or performing together at a special event or whatever.

    Some picks

    David Bowie/Bing Crosby -- They had that great collabertion on Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth back in the '70s. 

    Def Leppard/Taylor Swift -- Came across some YouTube videos of them, and while Swift doesn't have a power rock voice, her collaberation with Def Leppard on "Pour Some Sugar on Me" was decent. It was fun. There was an accoustic song that was better. All in all, I was impressed.

    Martina McBride/Pat Benatar -- Saw McBride perform "Promises in the Dark" on some country music show a few years back, and Benatar came out and joined her on the song. Excellent job. McBride has a powerful voice that would work fine on rock songs.

    Aerosmith/Britney Spears -- they did something together at the Super Bowl a few years back. Not good. Spears has her pop niche, which is fine, but her voice was definitely out of place.

    What are some others?

    Anthrax and Public Enemy.

    Great collaborations: Bowie and Queen "Under Pressure"; Bowie and Lennon "Fame".

    Robin Zander  of Cheap Trick contributed vocal tracks to Motley Crue's "She Goes Down" - excellent.

    And the greatest collaboration of all - Bob Dylan and The Band.

    Sorry, Roy, but that is a bizarre matchup.  Hope that was a one-off.   :)

    Joan Jett and Miley Cyrus --  Truly hideous.  Cyrus should not be on the same stage as Jett, and that's putting it mildly.   (Cyrus should not be on any stage, for that matter).  

    Alicia Keys and Jay Z - ""Empire State of Mind"  (perfection)

    Billy Bragg and Wilco - "Mermaid Avenue" (album of previously unrecorded Woody Guthrie songs)

    It's surprisingly good. It's funny reading the comments in which Def Leppard fans rip her for performing with them. But obviously, they think enough of her to perform with her and respect her talent.

    She really doesn't have a power rock voice, but she respectable and it looks like they're all having fun. If Swift fans watched it, they see a group they likely were never exposed to and vice versa. To me, that's a good thing.

    Anthrax and Public Enemy.


    There was obvious chemistry here between the two groups, but it was so good that it partly inspired/birthed the 90s nugget known as the Judgment Night Soundtrack.

    Each song was a collab between a rap and rock act, with mostly good results.  To wit:

    Sonic Youth / Cypress Hill - "I Love You Mary Jane"

    Slayer / Ice-T - "Disorder" [Ice-T, of course, had his own metal band, Body Count]

    Teenage Fanclub / De La Soul - "Fallin"

    Biohazard / Onyx - "Judgment Night", etc.

    Dinosaur Jr. / Del Tha Funky Homosapien - Missing Link

    Living Colour / Run D.M.C. - My, Myself & My Microphone [tongue-in-cheek, eh]

     

    Aside: I recently saw Kanye West on SNL, and the wife and I both swear buckets the track he was using was by Ministry, but I can't confirm this.  Either way, it was better rap-rock than I've heard in a while.

     

    But my fave collaboration will ALWAYS be:

    Neil Young and Crazy Horse

    Considering the E Street Band were not inducted into the Hall, I no longer consider them Bruce's band.

     

    Therefore, out of respect for the band, I will include Bruce and the boys even though I detest Bruce.

    In the first song Taylor and Def do(pour some sugar on me), Notice how Taylor just whipps her guiatar across the stage...  Who in the world treats a guitar like that??? Either you take care of your guitar like it's a little baby or you smash it on stage for a reaction from the crowd. Taylor should be charged with guitar abuse.

    Well, I stand corrected based on the idea you said "BAD or ODD / different generations" -- so this was bad and ODD / different generations, rolled into one.   I love the song "Photograph" so maybe I am more picky.  :)

    Aside from that, I agree fully that if some TS fans made a discovery of an older RnR group because of this,  that's a very good thing.   It's lots of fun to see unlikely artists get together, especially when you can see they are having a great time together.

    This isn't really what I was looking for.

    I'm looking for the collaberations between performers of different genres of music primarily and secondarily, different generations even if it was in the same genre (say, some 50-plus rocker working with a 20-somethign rocker) or both.

    Well it was an odd collaberation. Whether you think it was good or bad is simply personal preference.

    I think I'm OK with the results because my expectations were low, so it easily surpassed my expectations.

    Plus, I'm not really a fan of her music, but I do respect Taylor Swift. Many of the female pop stars today prance around half dressed and seem to focus on the production and first and the music is secondary. They just seem to be a packaged product to make money.

    With Swift, she plays guitar, writes her own music, and with her it seems that the music is first and she doesn't come across as some packaged product. So that I can respect.

    The the oddest & worst collaboration would be the redo of Kashmir for the Godzilla movie with P. Diddy reworking the lyrics and Page joining him to rerecord it.

     

    Horrible.

    Really?  I kind of liked that one.  Diddy is a fair rapper at best, but Page's licks were great.  Hardly the first (or worst) sampling of Led Zep in a rap song, IMO.  Tom Morello played on it, too.

    The Beasties' "She's Crafty" uses the riff from "The Ocean" to good effect.
