Broken Up

I don’t get actors that want to sing. In fact, I don’t get singers that want to act either. Regardless, the always scrumtrulecent Scarlett Johansson released an album last year entitled Anywhere I Lay My Head and I can say I was less than impressed with the effort. I mean I love ScarJo. Her turns in Woody Allen’s films were all tremendous and she’s the freaking Black Widow in Iron Man 2. But an album? It had Mr. David Bowie on two songs and a ton of Tom Waits material. It just seemed odd to me: “Scarlett Johansson’s album drops May 16th”. What the eff indeed.

So I thought the experiment was done. But it got weirder. “Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson’s Break Up drops September 8th”. Pinch me. Down below are two cuts from the upcoming release. I love Pete Yorn. He’s one of my favorites and I’m hoping that there’s more him than her. She’s not bad per se. I mean she’s not Bruce Willis but she’s not Mandy Moore either. Shampoo is the better track in my opinion. Realtor is bubbly and fun and ScarJo’s voice isn’t all that bad but Shampoo is more Yornish. Take a listen and judge for yourself.
