  1. Some good ones. I thought I didn’t know the Scott Baio song, but it sounded a little familiar, although I might be confusing it with this:

    As for Rick Springfield, was he an actor first? I thought he was a musician who turned to TV. No?

    I really like this version. In fact, I think I like it more than the original.

    (There’s gotta be a lot more out there.)

    Here’s another that came to mind:

    1. Springfield, like Rex Smith, was a musician first but didn’t make it in music until after he made it as an actor, unless you count some airplay in Australia. Yeah, I hesitated before adding it.

      Was that Huey Lewis / Gwyneth Paltrow song a hit? Gwyneth had a few hit songs (“Forget You” and “Landslide”) from her time on Glee, but I don’t remember this one at all. And if we’re going to just share songs recorded by actors, the list will be super long. 🙂 Are you familiar with the Golden Throats series of compilations? 🙂

      EDIT: Ah. It’s from Duets, which I haven’t yet seen. Maybe it was a hit.

    2. I think the Paltrow/Lewis rendition was a hit. I heard it on the radio, when it came out, anyway.

      No, I’m not familiar with Golden Throats.

      1. I didn’t know that. It’s not in his Wikipedia article, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

  2. I could be totally wrong. I vaguely recall that he sang in a bar band, but maybe that’s because of the Seagrams (sp?) commercial.
