Original or Reboot?

One of my favorite artists, among so many, is Bobby Darin. Yet, I still haven’t seen the movie: Beyond the Sea. What I have done is listen to (and purchased) the soundtrack…the movie soundtrack.

I recall when Joaquin Phoenix had portrayed Johnny Cash, in an interview he’d given praise to the original artist and asked the audience/viewer purchase Cash’s albums and not the movie soundtrack that he’d personally recorded. I appreciate the sentiment and agree with encouraging people to seek out the original singer/artist. But can’t we enjoy the fact that some actors surprise us with their musical talent, aka they can actually sing?!

The funny thing was this was a given way back when. For me, music is a big part of my life. It isn’t any wonder that I’d grown up loving musicals with Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire, Donald O’Conner, Danny Kaye, Ginger Rogers, Rita Hayworth, etc. etc….the list goes on in on.

Forgive me, but I tend to get a little excited when current actors show musical talent. 🙂
