Your favourite duets

Just as an opposite to the "worst duets" thread, which duets do you find a manna for the ears? Here's some I enjoy:

Nick Cave & PJ Harvey - Henry Lee
These two are sooo like each other's doppelganger it's scary. And few do "a woman scorned" thing better than Polly Jean.

Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue - Where the Wild Roses Grow
An improbable combination that somehow works in a beautiful way to create a gorgeous, haunting ballad.

Bono & Andrea Corr - Summer Wine
Some people would probably go "pffffft" at the mention of the Corrs, but I think that there's a genuine chemistry between their voices and it's a damn sexy duet, too.

Pavarotti & U2 - Miss Sarajevo
What made me admire Bono even more is that, after listening to the whole Sarajevo concert that song was performed at, I realised that he was the only one smart enough not to compete with Pavarotti's voice.

Gwen Stefani & Eve - Let Me Blow Ya Mind
I'm not that big on rap, but this one is just too cool for words.

Not a duet, just a double-tracked George vocal. Eric plays the lead guitar.
