Buzz In: What Musical Collaborations Would You Love to See?

The news that frequent collaborators M. Ward, Conor Oberst, and Jim James might soon be releasing an album together pretty nearly made me jump for joy this week. I like all three of them on their own, but I imagine they'd be so much better together, and supposedly the album (released under the name Monsters of Folk) would contain original songs by all three and be in stores in September. Fingers crossed, cause that sounds like a pretty great lineup to me.

In fact, I'm pretty sure those three would qualify as one of my dream musical collaborations, and so now I'm wondering what some of yours would be. M. Ward has a pretty good record with collaborations (see also: She and Him), and I'd love to see him record a full album of duets with Jenny Lewis. Also, after the whole Jaydiohead phenomenon, I occasionally dream of getting Jay-Z and Radiohead to record something together for real.

What about you? Do you imagine any of your favorite artists would be even better together?

Lily Allen and Robyn would be fun, but Robyn can do no wrong so I'll just say her + anyone :) My fave has to be The Ballad of Tom Jones by Space with Cerys... I love that song.

Monsters of Folk are DEFINITELY one of my dream collaborations. I'd love to see a cool Björk/Sigur Rós collab.

I LOVED the creation of Two Tongues (Saves the Day and Say Anything). However, a mix of folk/jazz artists I would find to be a lot more successful. Let's say, Michael Buble and Missy Higgins.
