Of course everyone acts sings and dances these days - you can't get a career unless you are a triple threat.
But for two actors mostly known for acting, they sing and dance pretty well

Sadly not on Spotify. I've always fancied listening to that. Just once though. I suspect it must be dreadful.

you've never heard it?
It was a popular choice here back in the Mojo days
I put a track or two on my jolly up discs





Utterly unacceptable

I've got two pensions! One from the UK and one from Spain.
I'll bore you to tears with the details of how I managed to get them next time I see you.

Jesus fucking H Christ!
That is even worse than I'd imagined.

Still, something to scratch from my bucket list, so thanks for that.

Peter Sellers plays ukulele on "New York Girls" from, the fine Steeleye Span album, Commoners Crown

Does that count?

Jazz generally does have a tune but they don’t necessarily play it to you.

Thank you Tym

How could I forget Micky Rourke putting the icing on the cake (aka knee in the groin) to Bowie's Shining Star?

There's a few that mention James Dean, including Rock On by David Essex and Style by Taylor Swift.

I think you should be just doing actors as performers.

Peter Hammill wrote several songs about actors.

One of the best is 'Caught In The Mousetrap', which details the thoughts of an actor playing in the long-running Agatha Christie play.



There were fairly obvious parallels with going out playing in a recognised rock band night after night, and trying hard to avoid rote recitation of past glories.

I have always found Tim Curry's musical career interesting. A classically trained vocalist who later fell in love with the big sixties songwriters, he actually troubled the US charts in the late seventies with a trilogy of albums that updated, for the time, the sort of projects that actors did a decade earlier.

Curry worked with fairly heavyweight musicians - Michael Kamen, Davis Sanbourn, Bob Ezrin and his house guitarist Dick Wagner (Lou Reed, Alice Cooper).

Very much of its time, but worth a listen.
