1982: "Ebony and Ivory", a duet by Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney, debuts on the US charts at #29. It will eventually reach number one in both the US and UK, becoming Wonder's first British chart topper. The song listed at #59 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of all time, but in October 2007 it was named "the worst duet in history" by BBC 6 Music listeners and these days gets little airplay on either side of the Atlantic.
