When Musical Collaborations Go Very Very Bad

By Hazlitt

If one is the loneliest number, then surely two musical talents firing on all cylinders will fill our ears with the hum of auditory perfection. But, as the likes of LL Cool J and Brad Paisley found out this week (“Accidental Racist” turned out to be mostly racist and not all that accidental), combining musical forces can have catastrophic results. Here is our list of the top failed collaborations. 

Gwyneth Paltrow and Huey Lewis
Before she was a Goop-er, BFF of Mrs. Carter, making pizzas out of angel dust and Egyptian silkworms with Mario Batali, Gwyneth Paltrow was just a leggy young blonde with a dream. This duet with Huey Lewis from the film, you guessed it, Duets, is the “Lemon Incest” of the Karaoke world. That is, total soul annihilation. (BH)
