The blues artist estimates that she has guested on more than 100 songs. Her shortlist of the most unforgettable.

"I'm in the Mood," with John Lee Hooker (1989)

This collaboration won a Grammy for best traditional blues recording, but that's not why it ranks among Raitt's favorites: "I shared musical heat with John Lee Hooker."

"Hey There," with John Raitt (1995)

One of three duets on her father's Broadway Legend album, this show-tune cover from The Pajama Game is, in Raitt's words, "a daddy-daughter moment to cherish forever."

"I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues," with Tony Bennett (2001)
