    Nominate 20 songs recorded by famous people who're not famous for being singers? e.g. actors, sportsmen/women, footballers, soap stars


    Posting a link for each nomination would be ideal, that way others can watch/listen and decide whether they want to include that song in their final ten.

    If possible (not compulsory) try to avoid posting the videos as this slows down the thread.

    Staying with the same format. Once the nominations are complete, I will post the final list and everyone can then check out all the nominated songs and vote for their favourite ten from other member's lists.

    Duplicates are more than welcome, but they won't be included when we take the vote

    To clarify for any newcomers: The idea is, we all nominate songs we like (based on the title/theme of the thread). We then check out each other's nominations and pick a favourite ten from their lists.


    20 songs are the maximum, but if you don't have 20, anything less is fine.

    Everyone is welcome to join in and nominate 20 songs



    Last day for nominations is
    Monday 16th October

    That's what I meant. He's released 2 albums and 20+ singles. So it doesn't feel very obscure.
    Oh well, I guess it's just about finding songs we hadn't done before. It should be doable.

    I have to add in that I'm most pleasantly surprised by this round, I was expecting it to be filled with novelty songs and there's some great music happening right now thanks to @Long Lashes for suggesting this idea.

    I assume that many actors train their voices for the theater or movies, so maybe it's not so extremely surprising that many of them know how to sing a tune.
    Still, some of them are exceptional. As I mentioned in the other thread: Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, but also Johnny Depp and Milla Jovovich.
    I had 15 big favourites and I had to figure out how to narrow it down to ten. I decided to only to pick the artists I know, so Emilia Clark had to go. But then I compared her version to the original, and I like her version better, so I put her back on the list.

    *sigh*

    Then the next dilemma: ranked by vocals or songs? Many great songs I hadn't heard before....
    So I've decided to do it the way I always do: a potpourri of favourites, for various reasons.

    1. This Time - Jonathan Rhys-Meyers @Emelee
    2. Freelove - Chris (Pine?) @Jessie
    3. It's Your Life - Milla Jovovich @Richard Channing
    4. Should I Leave - David Charvet @Richard Channing
    5. Lullaby From “Rosemary’s Baby” - Mia Farrow with Krzysztof Komeda @Mel O’Drama (it's not easy to make a la-la-la song sound so captivating).
    6. Fisherman’s Blues - Emilia Clark @Jessie
    7. Gods and Monsters - Jessica Lange @Emelee (but I enjoyed all her songs from the AHS series, I love AHS!!)
    8. Fallen Angel – Traci Lords @Richard Channing (a clubhit I hadn't heard before -shock!)
    9. Gone Gone Gone - Colin Farrell @Jessie (better than his sex tape!)
    10. The Trail Of The Lonesome Pine - Laurel & Hardy @Angela Channing (lovely song and performance)

    1. Beyond The Sea - Kevin Spacey @Jessie
    Spacey swings it with the best of them


    2. Missing You*
    - Cheryl Ladd @Willie Oleson
    It takes a good voice to carry a disco tune like this. Cheryl has it! The song, too is really good. Maybe someone should ask Cherry Red to issue Cheryl's albums on CDs very soon.


    3. Slow Me Down*
    - Emmy Rossum** @Emelee
    Love those harmonies and she has a good voice.


    4. An Ocean Apart*
    - Julie Delpy** @Richard Channing
    Love the sweet, vintage feel of this one.


    5. Don’t Give Up On Us
    - David Soul @Angela Channing
    This is a very nostalgic song for me and would have been in my own noms if Angela hadn't wisely included it.


    6. Gone Gone Gone*
    - Colin Farrell @Jessie
    This was a big surprise for me. Not particularly caring for Farrell's acting I was expecting to be lukewarm towards this, but I actually love it.


    7. I’m Your Man*
    - Ronn Moss** @Emelee
    I was expecting this to be a cover of the Wham! song, so discovering a completely new song was a nice surprise.


    8. If
    - Telly Savalas @Angela Channing
    I've always loved the direction this song went in. Telly's voice is one of his trademarks and the spoken words highlight the poetry and beauty of the lyrics.


    9. Blue Moon - Cybill Shepherd @Richard Channing
    Another one that sprang to mind for me when the theme was announced. Reminds me of that great Moonlighting episode that had the dramatic spoken introduction warning the viewer that their screen was going to turn black and white. Great choice, Richard.


    10. Bosom Buddies
    - Pat MacDonald & Rowena Wallace @Willie Oleson
    It's a crime that the All My Friends albums (S&D and A Country Practice) haven't been released on a CD twofer.




    * = I haven't previously heard this song performed by any artist
    ** = I've never before heard of the artist
