If any of you are trying to cobble together a last minute mixtape for your Valentine today, Billboard’s top 40 duets of all time may give you inspiration.
The list highlights recent hits like Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' "Empire State of Mind," as well as more classic tracks like Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe." (That one comes in at No. 35, right after Jennifer Lopez and LL Cool J's "All I Have.")
Billboard chose the top 40 duets by taking a look at songs that gave each artist equal time at the mic, and they're ordered by how well they performed on the Billboard Hot 100 since the chart’s launch in August, 1958. The more weeks a song spent at No. 1, the higher its rating.
And if you think it’d be really, really awesome if people would stop reminding you of what today is, don’t fret - some of the highest ranked duets aren't about romance.
The top 10 duets of all time are:
1. "Endless Love" - Diana Ross & Lionel Richie
2. "Say, Say, Say" - Paul McCartney And Michael Jackson
3. "The Boy Is Mine" - Brandy & Monica
4. "Ebony and Ivory" - Paul McCartney And Stevie Wonder
5. "Dilemma" - Nelly & Kelly Rowland
6. "I'm Real" - Jennifer Lopez & Ja Rule
7. "My Boo" - Usher And Alicia Keys
8. "Baby Boy" - Beyonce & Sean Paul
9. "Islands in the Stream" - Kenny Rogers with Dolly Parton
10. "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" - Elton John & Kiki Dee

Under Pressure? Queen and Bowie anyone? If they really wanted to top off this crappy list they might as well make Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow number 11.
One you all have forgotten about was K D Lang and Melissa Etheridge. "White Window (Yeast Police)" or "Afterbirth Diner".
Or the duet by George Michael and Boy George? "Phuck City Phudge Pack" or "Lick Rump Gravy"? What about those?
What about Shack-a-lack and Vermitta Hornsfield and their duet "Dipn My CornHole Be Stankin"? HUH...what about that one?
