Notable Song Credits
Comments & Submittor Name
Madeline Kahn I'm Tired The comic actress, best known for her roles in Mel Brooks films, played cabaret singer "Lilly" in "Blazing Saddles". In the show she sings "I'm Tired", which is basically a Marlene Dietrich parody. She has a good voice, but the song is played for comedic effect. - Joe Pearson
Mae West Twist and Shout, Light My Fire, Day Tripper  - Tim Hall
Malcolm Jamal-Warner Helpless, Confessions, Lap Dance The young man known to millions as Theo from the American television show "The Cosby Show" is an adult and trying himself out in the jazz field. His group is called Malcolm Jamal-Warner's Miles Long. - John Book
Manny Pacquiao Various Popularised a bunch of singles in Tagalog which were released during 2005-2006. Also did a bunch of live performances in late-night talk shows in the States, but in both cases, his voice is enough for us to suggest that he should stick to boxing. - Felicity Merriman
Manny Pacquiao Para sa 'Yo ang Laban Na Ito Among his Barbie-level list of careers he has pursued especially during the height of his boxing career in the 2000s, Pacquiao has also tried his hand at singing, releasing several songs penned by novelty composer Lito Camo. Unlike his contemporary Oscar De La Hoya whose album was more or less well-received, Pacquiao's singing abilities were no more different than a typical Filipino beer-binger at a local karaoke pub. - Maryellen Larkin
Marion Cotillard The Eyes of Mars French, Academy-award winner actress recorded a song with the band Franz Ferdinand. The song is great and her singing is quite good. - Balao
Mark Smith My Blue Escape Smith was a forward for the NHL's San Jose Sharks in the 2000's and formed the group upon settling in the Silicon Valley region. - harderman
Marlon Brando Guys and Dolls- Luck Be a Lady, Woman in Love Starred as Sky in the 1955 film "Guys and Dolls" after Gene Kelly turned down the role. - KL Fan
Martin Short Various songs from "The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot about That", also several talk shows Martin Short voices the title character in that PBS Kids show. As the Cat in the Hat, he can sing really good. The best example is the meerkat episode. He also sung before on a few talk shows like Australian Daytime TV. He sounds good no matter where he is! - Brionna Secret
Matti Nykänen Tyylini on V The all time greatest Olympic Ski Jump winner, Matti Nykänen, has also tried his skills as a singer. With poor results. - Susanna Viljanen
Mel Blanc Toot-Toot-Tootsie "The Man of a Thousand Voices" could sing in all of them. Most of his records were comedy-oriented, and some of them still hold up pretty well today. - Jeff Missinne
Meryl Streep The Winner Takes It All, Mamma Mia!, Money Money Money She sings in the movie 'Mamma Mia!", a musical that uses the music of ABBA, but with the movie's actual cast singing the songs. Perhaps no cast member makes the songs sound QUITE as good as the ABBA originals. But Meryl Streep is among the cast members that suprise us with remarkable singing quality for someone we've known previously almost exclusively for acting. Through this movie she has shown herself to be a singer to the point that no longer do any amiright editors need to cite 'Music Of The Heart' to justify her having an artist summary on amiright. 'The Winner Takes It All' is probably her best solo in the movie. It is especially impressive in the context of the video where one sees her singing and the setting. Also impressive is her performance, along with Julie Walters and Christine Baranski, of 'Souper Trouper'. - Ingrid McCannless
Michael Palin The Lumberjack Song I'm a Lumberjack and I'm okay.... - Paul Warren
Mike Myers Daddy Wasn't There Another from "Goldmember", as the main character, Austin Powers, Mike sang about his character's lack of relationship with his father. The other song was funnier. - JeReMy
Mike Myers Just the Two of Us, Hard-Knock Life These songs are credited as Dr. Evil which Mike Myers plays in the "Austin Powers" movies. - Paul Warren
Mike Reid The Ugly Duckling Stand-up comedian, host of late 70s kids' TV show "Runaround" and actor on BBC soap "EastEnders" in which he played Frank Butcher for 18 years released this version of the song in 1975 and it hit Number 10 in the UK charts - Brendan
Miley Cyrus She recently released a video for the song See You Soon At age 15 Miley Cyrus stars in the Disney show Hanna Montanna but she was recently bitten by the singing bug just like dad Billy Ray Cyrus. - Celeste
Milla Jovovich Gentleman Who Fell Jovovich, famous for the "Resident Evil" series, released a full album of soft alternative rock in 1994, called "The Divine Comedy". "Gentleman Who Fell" was the first single and video. It managed to chart on the Modern Rock Tracks Chart. - Joe Pearson
Minnie Driver Born to Be Lonely OK, Driver was casted as Charlotta in the movie version of "Phantom of the Opera", but her singing voice in the movie was dubbed by Margaret Preece, a professional opera singer, even the part when her voice messed up). All is not lost as she got a song called "Born To be Lonely" as the final credits of the movie. She was surprisingly good, but she never reached much commercial success for her own two albums: "Everything I've Got in My Pocket" & "Seastories ". Could be lost gems though. - Rocky Mak
Mr. T Mother Mr. T can’t sing but he has a good message. - Travis
