Crazy in Love

Got me looking so crazy right now / Your love's got me looking so crazy right now...

They started off singing Crazy in Love 12 years ago, and are to this day singing together, performing Drunk in Love on stage at the weekend.

Nobody's Business

You'll always be mine, sing it to the world / Always be my boy, I'll always be your girl

They have been making headlines and music together for eight years.  And although they are apart at the moment, don't write off another reconciliation and duet if and when they get it on again.

3. Sonny & Cher

I Got You Babe

They say we're young and we don't know / We won't find out until we grow / Well I don't know if all that's true / 'Cause you got me, and baby I got you...

 

The song sold over one million copies in three weeks in 1965. And made Rolling Stones top 500 songs of all time.

Johnny Cash & June Carter

Jackson

I'm goin' to Jackson, I'm gonna mess around/Yeah, I'm goin' to Jackson/ Look out Jackson town.

The married couple covered the song in 1967, and it was used on the soundtrack of  the 2011 movie The Help. It is said to be about a marired couple who have lost the spark in their relationship and are looking forward ot a trip to Jackson, where they intend to 'mess around'.

Barbra Streisand and  Kris Kristofferson

Evergreen

Love soft as an easy chair/Love fresh as the morning air/One love that is shared by two/I have found with you

 

The real-life couple starred in the film A Star Is Born, and in a recent interview  with Oprah Kristofferson revaled: "The bathtub scene was probably the sexiest scene that I did in any of my films. I've been in a lot of films, but that's one that always brings a smile to my face. I think of it often."
