  1. Donegal (1637 37 St. SW)
  2. Fiddler's Courtyard (723 Edmonton Trail)
  3. James Joyce (114 8 Ave SW)
  4. The Joyce on 4th (506 24 Ave SW)
I've always loved duets. Maybe because they seem the most dramatic. And these songs all have terrific stories.
  1. "The Dirty Glass" - The Dropkick Murphys (Al Barr) with Stephanie Dougherty.
    Technically not a duet because it has a third voice, but really it's a duet between a guy and his local bar, Darcy's. He longs to go back to her, but "she" has only caused him grief. She figures she's been wronged. Then his best friend steps in. All in a three and half minute song that never lets up.
  2. "Some Velvet Morning" - Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood
    Psychedelic-Country-Pop. Dark, sexual, and very catchy. Feels like two completely different songs fused together.
  3. "Where the Wild Roses Grow" - Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue
    From the Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds album "Murder Ballads" (1996). "They call me the wild rose...why I do not know..." And gradually we find out the haunting truth. Beautiful and sinister.
