    QUICK! worst actor attempt at music

    Of course we all know William Shatner turned 'bad' into an art form, but some actors' attempts at music are just plain bad.

    I won't go into a whole list, but my first nominations would be:

    Bruce Willis - Return Of Bruno
    Don Johnson - Heartbeat
    Eddie Murphy - How Could It Be

    Thing is, these 3 albums had hit songs.
    Repost this on your wall if you love Jesus.

    How about the one by Scarlett Johanson doing Tom Waits songs?

    She just put out a CD with Pete Yorn. I haven't heard it, but just the thought scares me. I have Yorn's first two CDs and I like them.

    Did you know that Don Johnson wrote and sings on the Allman Brother song Bougainvillea?

    I have now searched out that one on Rhapsody and listened to a Pete Yorn album, Scarlett's album, and the duo's album...each one start to finish. Although I don't have the perspective of a previous Pete Yorn fan, the new one seems to settle into being a Pete Yorn album after the first song.

    Mae West doing "Shakin' All Over," how could that possibly be bad?

    ...it's not bad at all. Her voice reminds me of an old-timey female torch/lounge singer, and I do like Pete. As far as 'actors turned singers' I've heard a lot worse.
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    ...as she wasn't trying to be a singer, just having fun with our National Anthem. It was, however, atrocious.

    I would submit nearly anything by...

    ...Rick Springfield or Kevin Bacon. Do they have some talent? Yeah, but they really should stick to acting or whatever. They wrote/write some really lame-ass ****e.

    And the aforementioned 'Boogie in Your Butt' or whatever by Eddie Murphy...deplorable and so many levels.

    How's about...



    or maybe...

    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    I didn't even see this thread before I posted in the other one.

    That Jack Lemmon album actually looks intriguing.

    Nothing grates me more than that godawful song that Patrick Swayze "wrote" for the Dirty Dancing soundtrack... I also had a friend who had a cassette of Kurt Russell's demo in his car and I remember that being pretty excruciating.
