After her karaoke stint in Lost in Translation, it was surprising to hear that Scarlett Johansson was going to put out her own CD, "Anywhere I Lay My Head." Now it's heading for shelves on May 20, and the first video has been released on Yahoo, which you can check out above. Many of you are not all that thrilled with Johansson's acting, but what do you think of her singing?
It sounds like they toned down her voice and put a lot of effects on it to try to make her sound like Sinead O'Connor. I don't think it helps much. I have a lot of varied musical tastes, digging everything from John Frusciante's more avant-garde work, to the twang of Victoria Williams, to the melody of Lamb, but "Falling Down" just sounds bad. And it looks like I'm not the only one who thinks so. Variety has the clip up and included a poll that has, so far, 75% of the readers saying she should stick with acting.
What do you think? Do you like it? Is this another professional swing and a miss? No matter what complaints pop up about her acting, she's still moving full steam ahead, so will this be popular either way?
