Other odd collaborations
DAVID BOWIE AND BING CROSBY - THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY/ PEACE ON EARTH
Bowie was well into his narcotic electronic experimentation phase when he joined Crosby for this surreal if heart-warming Christmas mash-up (before mash-ups were "a thing"). It was for the aunties' favourite's 42nd and final Christmas special in 1977. Crosby died a month after filming.
AVICII - LAY ME DOWN (FEAT. NILE RODGERS AND ADAM LAMBERT)
The DJ-producer wanted to collaborate with Rodgers "way before" the latter's work with Daft Punk. Lambert has an "incredible voice", apparently.
WILL.I.AM - T.H.E (THE HARDEST EVER) (FEAT. JENNIFER LOPEZ AND MICK JAGGER)
Will.i.am and JLo - sure. But Jagger?
"I wanted to be like Mick when I was young" was Will.i.am's reason.
NELLY AND TIM MCGRAW - OVER AND OVER
Rap and country may seem like a joke, but Nelly asked McGraw because "he's a badass, he's got game, and he's got a fine *****". How nice. We're sure McGraw's wife, Faith Hill, is flattered.
