Scarlett Johansson Does Tom Waits

Does his songs, that is. On a CD. I read about this a while back, and I thought, "She can sing?" Well, I've been listening to the first single ("Falling Down") from the CD via Rhapsody, and I'd have to say that the jury is still out. The single is mesmerizing, and I like the production, but I'm not so sure about the alleged singing. Not that it matters, I suppose. If you want to get right down to it, Tom Waits doesn't exactly sing, either. I like this one enough to listen to the rest of the CD when it's released.

    I have not heard her sing but I reckon the videos will sell her album more than her singing.

  6. Bill, please apply the "Paris Rule": Does it really matter whether or not she can carry a tune?

  7. No, and Gerard's right. The video will sell the tunes.

  8. Or, as with the Hilton and Milla Jovavich albums, nothing will sell the tunes, and everyone will simply watch the videos.
