If you’re at a karaoke bar and you see a guy and a girl go up together, brace yourself. Odds are two to one they’re going to sing “Islands in the Stream,” the treacly 1983 duet by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. If anyone can bring some street cred to the song that inspired “Ghetto Superstar,” though, it’s My Morning Jacket.
Last night, they brought Neko Case out to sing it with them in Pittsburgh. The audio’s a little fuzzy, but the video is as much fun to watch as it clearly was for them to perform. Check it out below. (via Pitchfork)
