Previous posts from the 70s thread:

(41) 37. THINK IT OVER - CHERYL LADD

Is this another Bruce Willis/Patrick Swayze/John Schneider/Jack Wagner/Don Johnson situation? "I'm a TV/film star who also had one top 40 hit while in my acting prime"



Allow me to add Bill Cosby, Cheryl Ladd, Steve Martin and Jerry Lewis. Jerry reached #10 in December 1956 with [a] remake of a 1918 number-one hit by Al Jolson



Steve Martin did a comedy song. Not quite the same category of the other guys taking themselves seriously as an alleged singer.



We can include Bob Hope. Two Sleepy People, his duet with Shirley Ross from the movie Thanks For The Memory reached #15 in January 1939. It was Hope's only chart hit – although the B-side, Thanks For The Memory, became much more famous.

Here is Autograph by the Bryan Brothers Band from 2009. The band was led by composer/producer/keyboardist David Baron. This song features tennis players Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic. They should be charged with a double fault for this.

Here's the reason I started this thread. Gazelle Bundtcake is in the news about divorcing Tom Brady and I stumbled on these desecrations today...




That's a real testament to studio processing. You could probably substitute her with anyone and it would sound the same.

At the moment, I can only think of celebrities who can sing:
Jared Leto - Thirty Seconds to Mars;
Zoey Deschanel - She and Him;
Even Scarlett Johansson is ok

David Faustino, who played Bud Bundy on Married...With Children (1987-97), released one single in 1992. It was one too many. Here is I Told Ya:

Paris Hilton.



Stars are not only blind, they're apparently tone deaf.

I never watched Blossom, but Joey Russo (Joey Lawrence) thought he could 'New Jack Sing' back in 1993.

While I don't see the talent, others evidently thought he could too. This song hit #19.

I'm listening to Stern 6/13/2002, he's about to interview Oxana Fedorova - Miss Universe 2002 (from Russia).

I saw this in Wikipedia about her:

A few months after Fedorova's crowning, she was rumored to be pregnant, and was later dethroned by the Miss Universe Organization. Fedorova denied the pregnancy rumors and stated that she voluntarily gave up her crown for personal reasons, mainly because she wanted to finish her law degree. She later stated in an interview that she had declined to perform her duties because she was so insulted by her treatment on The Howard Stern Show. She blamed the pageant organizers for not warning her of the sexual questions Howard Stern frequently asks.

I also saw this:

Fedorova began her music career in 2009, releasing the single "Prava lyubov" with Nikolay Baskov. The song went on to win Duet of the Year at the 2010 Golden Gramophone Awards.

Peaked at #88

"The movie may not have been a classic, and neither is the song — but damn if it doesn’t sound like Reynolds is having a good time while recording. 'Superficial' is exactly the kind of low-grade country song an unpretentious and hilariously famous Florida boy should have graced the charts with: giddy, sloppy, and only as memorable as a shot of tequila twenty minutes before last call." - Billboard
