Dream cover duets that will happen only in your head (even though you're right, and they'd be AWESOME)

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.
