Dream duets: Keith Urban and Jennifer Nettles

Posted on

Over the years, entertaining myself on my evening commute has taken strange turns, like choreographing a synchronized swimming routine to Britney Spears’ “Toxic” or envisioning a figure skating long program set to Johnny Cash’s cover of “Hurt” for Paul Wylie. But occasionally, I get a good idea: Last night, while listening to the duet “Surrender to Me” by Ann Wilson and Robin Zander off of the Tequila Sunrise soundtrack, I decided Jennifer Nettles and Keith Urban should do this song, if only so I can hear Urban perform the guitar solo that kicks in around 2:45 in the music video below. Nettles can capture that ’80s urgency, while Urban can keep it grounded but still sexy. Another reason I’m not insane: Richard Marx cowrote “Surrender to Me,” and he’s collaborated with Urban on three singles, two of which went to No. 1 (“Long Hot Summer” and “Better Life”).

What dream duets have you conjured up in your mind and remain convinced would be amazing? Pitch it below — including the song title — and perhaps you’ll at least get some validation from fellow readers.
