1. “Crying Time” with Ray Charles (1973)
This performance aired in the early ’70s on Streisand’s fifth television special, Barbra Streisand…And Other Musical Instruments. She also sang “Look What They’ve Done To My Song, Ma” and “Sweet Inspiration” / “Where You Lead” with Charles on this special.
2. “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers” with Neil Diamond (1980)
This song was originally released in 1978 as a single, and performed at the 1980 Grammy Awards by the Brooklyn natives.
3. “Get Happy” / “Happy Days Are Here Again” with Judy Garland (1963)
Quite possibly one of the most legendary duets of all time. Streisand appeared on The Judy Garland Show in 1963 at the rise of her fame — her and Garland performed a medley together, as well as an impromptu performance with Ethel Merman.
4. “They Long To Be (Close To You)” with Burt Bacharach (1971)
This performance is from The Burt Bacharach Special which aired on CBS in 1971.
5. “No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)” with Donna Summer (1979)
Another great duet for Streisand, showing her attempt to change with the times. Two women singing a song of empowerment, with an awesome late ’70s disco flavor.
6. “Guilty” with Barry Gibb (1987)
The song was originally released on Streisand’s 1980 album Guilty, but performed live in 1987 for her intimate concert One Voice. Her and Gibb also recorded “What Kind of Fool” for the same album.
7. “I Have a Love / One Hand, One Heart” with Johnny Mathis (1993)
A beautiful song written by Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein. Streisand recorded this duet with Mathis on her legendary 1993 album Back to Broadway.
8. “I’ve Got a Crush on You” with Frank Sinatra (2000)
Streisand “performed” with Sinatra during her Timeless New Year’s Eve concert in 2000. A sweet rendition of a classic song.
9. “Tell Him” with Céline Dion (1997)
You can almost compare this Streisand/Dion duet with the Streisand/Garland duet. A rising star singing with a legend, two incredibly powerful voices in one song.
10. “Lost Inside of You” with Kris Kristofferson (1976)
Streisand co-wrote this song with Leon Russell for the 1976 film A Star Is Born, which she starred in alongside Kristofferson. A match made in heaven.
11. “‘Till I Loved You” with Don Johnson (1988)
Written by Maury Yeston, this song was released on Streisand’s 1988 album ‘Till I Loved You and performed with then-boyfriend Don Johnson. ’80s pop ballad at its best.
12. “All I Know of Love” with Josh Groban (2002)
Streisand again keeping up with the times by singing with modern-day swooner Josh Groban. This song first appeared on her 2002 album Duets.
13. “Make No Mistake, He’s Mine” with Kim Carnes (1984)
A great 1980s song written by Carnes, and recorded for Streisand’s 1984 Emotion. There’s nothing greater than listening to Streisand perform a duet with someone outside of her genre.
14. “One Less Bell To Answer” / “A House Is Not a Home” with herself (1971)
Because Streisand is the only person who can sing a duet with herself, and absolutely kill it. This performance is from The Burt Bacharach Special.
15. “I Finally Found Someone” with Bryan Adams (1997)
This song was written for Streisand’s 1997 film The Mirror Has Two Faces. She co-wrote it with Bryan Adams, showing a rock/pop side.
