The B List: 10 Oddball Musical Pairings

Following yesterday’s stunning announcement that Jack White had collaborated with Insane Clown Posse our thoughts turned to other oddball musical pairings. For this week’s B List, we polled the Hidden Track staff and compiled a list of ten of the oddest musical collaborations.

Here’s what we came up with…

10. Phish and Jay-Z

It’s well documented that Phish loves to cross genres and play with guests, but when Trey Anastasio introduced Jay-Z to the stage in Coney Island in 2004 – jaws dropped. Can you imagine the Notorious B.I.G. stepping on stage with the Grateful Dead? As live collaborations go, 99 Problems / Big Pimpin’ was a big risk and a great success.

Bloggy Goodness: The Conchords Take Off

The second season of HBO’s comedy series Flight Of The Conchords premieres this Sunday at 10 PM. If the new season is anything like season one it will be filled with Bret and Jemaine’s hilarious struggles in the big city as they try to make it as a band. For those of you who found that they couldn’t get their songs out of their heads, you’re in luck as you’ll now be able to download a new song each week via iTunes the day after the show airs.


The comedic duo will also release their yet untitled sophomore album on Sub Pop on April 14 consisting of ten songs from the show and five brand new ones. As an added bonus, you can currently watch the season two premiere for free, click through and enjoy

Finally, iconic pop-rockers Cheap Trick are close to finalizing a deal that would give them their own headlining show in Las Vegas and would feature the band performing The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album in its entirety backed by a full orchestra. The exclusive deal with the Las Vegas Hilton is said to start this Spring and run through 2009.
