May 9, 2015 // 23 Comments

We haven’t done a Daily Top Five for a few days, so the original post is going to be lengthier than usual. Loyal fans of an artist usually love album cuts and rarities as much as they do the singles, if not more.   Today we ask, what are your five favorite lesser-known tracks by your five favorite artists? You don’t have to to pick five artists in the comments, of course.  But for the artists you pick, try to avoid singles! I’m cheating and using my iPod play counts to help me out here.

So for today’s Daily Double Top Fives, we’re asking you to make the distinction that the award shows don’t.  What are your favorite five duets, which feature two artists actually trading off lines, and what are your favorite five “all-star” harmony vocals? Here are mine: Top Five Duets Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton, “The Last Thing on My Mind” Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty, “After the Fire is Read More
