Subject: Bad Celebrity Albums

Written By: JamieMcBain on 02/16/05 at 10:17 am

I was reading an article in a magazine, about bad celebrity albums, and the list surprised me!

Lorne Greene  "Walk To The Ponderosa"
Burt Reynolds  "Ask Me What I Am"
Steven Seagal  "Songs From The Crystal Cage"
Gary Coleman  "Outlaw and The Indians"
Joe Pesci        "Vincent La Guardi Gambini Sings The Blues.... Just For You"

Does anyone else here know of anyone bad celebrity albums or songs?  ::)  ;D

Whereas Rick Springfield played Dr. Noah Drake on General Horsepiddle, Jack Wagner playd Frisco Jones.  For those of you under 30, Jack Wagner had a hit in the '84 called "All I Need," which was a little slice of hell.  His album--
His album bore (no pun intended) the same title.

Also in the  '80s, Eddie Murphy put out a couple of records in his attempt to be a pop singer.  Whereas his number one hit "Party All The Time," written by Rick "I'm Rick James Beeyatch" James is routinely voted one of the worst songs of the '80s, people forget the odious ballad "How Could It Be"   Eddie actually wrote this emetic because "songwriters get all the p*ssy."  How profound.
http://www.coolforever.com/temp/eddiemurphy_howcoulditbe.jpg
As one critic admonished, "Whoah, Eddie, stick to your side of the tracks!  What if Lionel Ritichie tried his hand at comedy?"
As egomaniacal as they are, I don't see today's premier Black comedians--Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle--trying to pull off such a gig.

Maybe the most infamous "bad celebrity albums" of all time are those of Charles Manson.  Charlie was an aspiring songwriter himself.  Prior to the Tate-LaBianca murders, Charlie made connections with Beach Boy Dennis Wilson and producer Terry Melcher.  His songwriting career was going nowhere and if you ever heard his songs, you know why.  But Charlie had a rather antisocial response to failure.  The knives of August 9th, 1969, were intended for Melcher, who had just moved out of the house Tate was sharing with hubby Roman Polanski.
What is not true is the urban legend that Manson auditioned for The Monkees.  It strikes me as strange anyone has to make up weird stories about a guy who thought Beatles records were telling him to start a racial holocaust!
Manson's songs sound a bit like some of today's avant-garde singer-songwriters, however, his monotonous voice, his dysrhythmic delivery, and erratic arrangements were not quite deliberate!

Don't forget...... About..... Will... Iam... Shat.... Ner!

I get a real kick out of his so-called "singing." I thought that the Colorado Kid's parody, "Captain Kirk's Christms Carol" was gonna be a parody of Shat's singing. And that parody inspired all of my Shatner-sings-Britney-Spears parodies (although one was Van Halen).

The songs he has actually performed/recorded are hilarious: His difinitive "song" is when he performed "Rock.... Et... Man" on the Science Fiction Awards in 1978 (it's available all over the net). Other notable cover songs are The Beatles' "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and Bob Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man" (Also covered by The Byrds) from The Transformed Man (1968), and the Pulp's "Common People" from the new album, Has Been.

If you want good Shatner originals, "Has Been" (The title track) is a hilarious take on Westerns. "I Can't Get Behind That" includes Shat's rants about "So called singers who can't carry a tune/Get paid for talking!/How easy is that?!" How ironic!  ::) "Ideal Woman" is a cute rocker.

And Shat and Henry Rollins really have a point: "Why can't all the Gods just get along?"
