What do you guys think are the best 80s duets?

I´m going to start with a rockin´ Fiona / Kip Winger tune from 1989.
This is from Fiona´s third, "Heart Like A Gun" album.

Fiona - Everything You Do (You're Sexing Me) [Duet with Kip Winger]

One of the very best duets ever--"Don't Give Up," Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush.

I love "Baby Come To Me". Back in the day, I was a big General Hospital fan (please don't tell mother made me watch it). This song was featured prominantly when Holly and Robert were apart (don't remember the details....thinking one or the other thought the other was dead). Anyhoo...any time they almost crossed paths...this song played...ahhh the memories. They did the exact same thing with Luke and Laura using "Think Of Laura" by Christopher Cross!

this right here. and i'm not a real big peter gabriel fan. kate rules though.

i'll contribute the david bowie/queen song "under pressure". i think that qualifies as a duet.

Kate Bush does rule! Here's the second best version of "Don't Give Up," Peter Gabriel and Paula Cole.

Is anybody au fait with the INXS-Jimmy Barnes duet "Good Times."?

Which, it goes without saying, is from the soundtrack to a Rewind favourite, The Lost Boys.

Yes, I love INXS and Jimmy Barnes. Chisel is from my home town so maybe my opinion is slightly biased. Nah, they deserve all the praise they get. A very tight band filled with very talented musicians.

INXS was so great back in the day. Expecially the album 'The Swing', but I only listen to their original stuff with Hutchence. None of this J.D. Fortune garabge, who I refer to as D.J.Bankrupt. I still remember were I was when I heard about Hutchences demise. It was so sad, but they played INXS all night which was good, but obviously didn't compensate for our loss. Not even close.

Cold Chisel is one of the coolest bands ever. Formed in Elizabeth, (one of the shadiest areas in Adeliade) and probably the only good thing to ever come out of there too. They truely are such great band and Barnesy's voice back in the early 80's is probably the best rock voice I have ever heard. I saw an early 80's concert of Chisel's back on TV a few years ago, and Barnesy's voice literally sent shivers up my spine - yes literally.

I remember listening to Chisel's East album over and over and over as a kid.

Good Times is a great song, especially at a house party. The Lost Boys is great too, and glad that some Aussie boys made it onto the soundtrack.
