    In what should have come from the depths of our "Awkward Files": On her new album Paradise, singer Judy Collins pairs up with former lover Stephen Stills on the Tom Paxton song "Last Thing on My Mind." The result is a fresh and sweetly melodic reminiscence of a couple's breakup, beautifully weaving the duo's complementary voices together with softly jangling guitars. Sigh.

    The poignant sound of the two exes singing "I could've loved you better / Didn't mean to be unkind/ Don't you know that was the last thing on my mind" makes for a wonderfully lilting and bittersweet tune.

    How tough is that? To duet with an ex-lover? Man, Collins and Stills are strong people. I am not sure I could do it. But the result is an achingly haunting and tender ballad teeming with emotion.

    You can listen to Judy Collins and Stephen Stills sing "Last Thing on My Mind" from by going here.
