There seems to be a lot of music collaborations being talked about these days and some of these sound like they would be good ideas while some seem like big effing jokes.
Here is a list of 5 music collaborations that are happening in no particular order.
1) Snoop Dogg is making a reggae album with Diplo.

2) Roger Daltrey of The Who and Paul Weller will collaborate.

"Paul Weller's been talking about an idea that he's been working on, which I'd love him to do. I've been very bad at finding material and he's got this idea and he's always said to me 'Why don't you sing more?' and I always say 'Find me some material'. So we'll see if we can come up with something." - Roger Daltrey
3) Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips and Ke$ha.
"I'm talking with Ke$ha about doing some tracks on her new record. We knew that she was a fan. She's a lot of fun and crazy and open to ideas and she's creative. She's all these things that you don't know." - Wayne Coyne
4) Johnny Depp & Marilyn Manson collaborate a cover song.
“(We wanted to do) a cover of a song which we thought was ironic for each other… He played drums and lead guitar, and I played guitar and sang.” - Marilyn Manson on covering 'You're So Vain'
5) Insane Clown Posse, Jack White, and Mozart.
“The music collaboration you’ve all been waiting for. 230 years in the making.” - no one
