Old School Fridays: Actors Who Sing

Today's topic is actors who sing. My first thought was Frank Sintra but than I realized that he was a singer who acted. There are a lot of actors who want to be singers, but that doesn't mean they are very good. It seems that actors want to sing, and singers want to act. I thought about this one and tried to figure out who to use and in the end went with Fred Astaire. He's not the best singer, but he's an all around entertainer. As well as seeing him sing you get to watch him dance. When I was younger I used to love to watch his old movies.

This meme was developed by Marvalus View and Ms. Grapevine. The rules are simple:

1. Anyone can participate; any music genre
2. Old School is defined as music created before 1999
3. No offensive words allowed, please use edited radio version
4. Post a video of your favorite Old School song to take us back down memory lane
5. Add your name to the meme list so that others can check you out
6. Have fun & don't forget to leave comments for other participants
