The 25 Greatest Duets Of All Time
(with embedded YouTube videos of each) from retroCRUSH. Duets, by nature, are a corny type of song. Sure, there's a handful that we recognize here that are also some of best tunes ever recorded, but there's something inherently cheesy and fun about duets that make them a fun guilty pleasure for millions to enjoy.

The American Film Institute decided the need for
an update to their 1998 list
of the 100 Greatest Movies was so pressing that they made a new list
. Ebert (and friends) ask where's Fargo?
. The IHT wonders why the past decade has only spawned four new, worthy movies
. And, generally, no one seems super excited about it. (some links go to wikipedia to avoid registration on AFI's site).

The 885 All Time Greatest Songs
as chosen by listeners to WXPN
, the listener-supported station at 88.5 on the Philadelphia-area FM dial. WXPN ran an on-line vote, asking listeners for their top 10 all time favorites in celebration of a move to a new studio. They are playing all 885 back, in order, all this week (on air and on-line). We're up to Bobby Darin and Beyond the Sea
(number 750, sandwiched between Husker Du and Jimi Hendrix) as I post this. My all time favorite, the Dead's Wharf Rat, was at 782. The site also presents the top ten lists of some of their staff and some favorite artists.
