What Is Paul's Worst Duet?
« on: January 13, 2007, 04:46:38 PM »

Paul McCartney is not really known for his great duets with other celebs, although they became big hits in most cases. Especially his efforts with Michael Jackson are usually slaughtered by Beatles fans.

Am I forgetting something?

Yeah, the Jacko ones are pretty bad. I haven't heard the George Michael one but I can imagine the title is accurate.

'The Man' is just horrible. I'm embarraressed to even have Pauls name associated with it.

'Get It' is a great tune. Not sure why its even listed.

Because tastes differ from person to person.

I gotcha on that account, but I was leaning more towards if it was snubbed by people before. I never heard anything bad about that tune and was just wondering if it was pegged as a crapper.

Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson did a duet on Wilson's album Getting In Over My Head called "A Friend Like You".

I hate to say it since I really really love both these guys, but that's probably Macca's worst duet...

If pushed I'd say 'The Girl Is Mine' just for the awful spoken bits in it. But really, all of them!

Ok, i'm sure we know that McCartney is a genius but what did we do to
deserve The Girl is Mine!!
I remember hearing it years back when i very young.
I never knew if McCartney & Jackson were being serious or having a laugh!
I always avoid the the track.
he's done much better duets. Used to be bad with steve miller for example.

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY will never perform his track EBONY AND IVORY again after it was voted the worst song of all time. The Beatles legend - who teamed up with Stevie Wonder for the 1982 song - is embarrassed the track topped the BBC poll for worst duet in history. A source tells British newspaper The Daily Express, "Paul now appreciates the songs hasn't aged well and the word is it definitely won't be on his playlist when he goes on tour next year."

I know he also sang Wide Prairie as a duet with Linda, but then his part was edited out to be included in Linda's 1998 posthoumous album. It would be great to listen to that recording, isn't it?  :D

The Girl Is Mine is hideous.

However, I think The Man is brilliant, it strangely reminds me of the Isley Brothers.
