All too often, a celebrity gets it into their head that now they've reach some margin of fame via a movie or sports, they can also sing! This usually turns out much worse than when singers try to act.
Notable Song Credits
Comments & Submittor Name
|Randy Savage||Be A Man||Hulk Hogan Diss song, challenging Hulk to a real fight Dan Aquilante of the New York Post, said his album "defies the laws of physics by blowing and sucking at the same time." - ICP4EVER|
|Raquel Welch||Let Me Entertain You||The less said about her singing (and her 70s music variety special) the better. - She|
|Raven (Raven-Symone)||Backflip, Hip Hop Teddy Bear, Supernatural, This Is My Time||- stefan|
|Reese Witherspoon||Jukebox Blues, Wildwood Flower||She was as June Carter Cash on "Walk The Line". Won Academy & BAFTA for best actress. If she was worried about singing in front of live audience, and that she never met June Carter Cash before her passing, she did a great job. - Rocky Mak|
|Renee Zellweger||Several songs in||Like Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Gere, John C. Reilly, Taye Diggs, Dana "Queen Latifah" Owens, and all the other cast members whom the film credits with songs from the score, Renee Zellweger did her own singing in the film version of "Chicago." As for the quality of her performance, that judgment is left to others, as this posting came from an individual who had, by the time of posting, not seen the film itself. - Parker Gabriel|
|Richard Chamberlain||"Three Stars Will Shine Tonight" (The Theme From "Dr. Kildare")||Mr. Chamberlain was the lead cast member of the late 1950s-early 1960s medical drama "Dr. Kildare," acting out the lead role of Dr. James Kildare M.D. The program's theme had lyrics written for it, and though I'm not about to judge the quality of Mr. Chamberlain's voice, his performance of "Three Stars Will Shine Tonight" actually charted. Can you believe that? - Parker Gabriel|
|Richard Harris||MacArthur Park||Before he was in Harry Potter and during the time he was in Camelot, Richard Harris sang the 7-minute epic called MacArthur Park. Now considered one of the worst songs ever recorded. - Paul Warren|
|Rob Brydon||The Winner Takes It All, Delilah, Wuthering Heights (on 'The Trip')||Rob and Steve Coogan's version of The Winner Takes It All is miles better than Meryl Streep's attempt in the film of 'Mamma Mia'! - pickle|
|Robert Downey Jr.||The album The Futurist||Has a very good voice. Smooth and soothing. I recommend. - Nathan|
|Robert Mitchum||The Whipoorwill||Mitchum was responsible for writing "The Whipoorwill" in Thunder Road, the 1958 movie about moonshine running. He also has an album which he sings, called "Calypso is Like So" Noted mostly for his acting, he was a poet and a songwriter. - Harry|
|Roberto Benigni||Quanto t'ho amato, L'inno del corpo sciolto, La marcia degli incazzati, etc...||Benigni is known for the 1997 Oscar winning movie "Life Is Beatiful" and has performed at the Festival di Sanremo- he's also put out over three compilations of his music - ps_rd_fan|
