George has always refused to sing in the film Brother Art Thou (I think!) Was doubled because he refused to sing.

No, this is one of the biggest misconceptions fans have about George. He did record a version of the song and according to the Coen brothers has a good voice. BUT that particular style of singing is very difficult so they used another singer to dub George's voice in the film.

That doesn't mean he can't sing; just that he can't sing in that one particular style.

On George's singing in O Brother, do any of you remember the singer, Tennessee Ernie Ford? He goes back a ways in TV, was primarily a country western singer, but did pop and gospel too. Well, my point, when George is "singing" Constant Sorrow for first time in movie, he reminded me of TEF, and the way he sang some of those gospel songs. Every time I watch OBWAT, I am reminded of it, but never watch with anyone so this is my first chance to express my thoughts.

I think he would have had a difficult time singing in that twangy voice as he had to get his uncle to record the script, so that he could get the "hillbilly" twang just right for speaking.

He has sung kareoke while out with "The Boys" and backstage in private with I believe it was "Snow Patrol" at the TV cancer fundraiser the summer before last. The band was surprised he had such a good voice. Personally I would rather be seduced by being serenaded by G, rather than the nice dinners out, if he honestly gave me the choice. (LOL) And yes I have been working on my comedy writing. Hope you all enjoy it. Davida-Rochelle

It's not surprising that he has a good singing voice, his speaking voice is so nice.

And I totally agree about the seducing part, but who wouldn't? LOL

I've heard quite different stories about George and his singing abilities. I have an older interview George did with Charlie Rose where he talks about trying to sing on O'Brother. He said something like "Rosemary Clooney's my aunt, of course I can sing" Then he said when he tried it was so bad they dubbed another singer. I also read an interview where he talked about singing karaoke and he said "even if someone was holding a gun to my mother's head, I wouldn't do it". He jokes about it so much that I'm not sure what to believe. The only time I heard him sing was the Oprah special with Julia and he did a quick Dean Martin impersonation.

I agree cindi, his speaking voice is wonderful. I would imaging his singing voice would be amazing too.

Oh, I thought I read once he stated that when it comes to singing, he took after Nina's side of the family. I guess he was being humble.

Still.... apart from being impossibly handsome, intelligent, talented and drunken.. modest, he can also sing acapella??!! Wow!

And now he's learning to play the piano with gusto?! I can imagine his enthusiasm. Seems very energetic. super cool

There is a scene in burning after reading that he is going to the shower and sing a few words. He has a good voice and can hold a tune, but he is not a great singer.

In the 1960's, Nick Clooney had an album called, "Songs My Producer Would Not Let Me SIng." In the early 1970's, Nick had an album called, "Nick Clooney." It was a green album. There is a song on YouTube that features Nick singing a Neil Diamond song.

Yes, Cindi. When I listened to that song, I found it to be very soothing. Just perfect for times that I want to relax after a stressful day.

I would love to hear George sing 'Lady' by Kenny Rogers.

Lyrics:

Lady, I'm your knight in shining armor and I love you
You have made me what I am and I am yours
My love, there's so many ways I want to say I love you
Let me hold you in my arms forever more

You have gone and made me such a fool, I'm so lost in your love And oh, we belong together
Won't you believe in my song? Lady, for so many years I thought I'd never find you You have come into my life and made me whole
Forever let me wake to see you each and every morning
Let me hear you whisper softly in my ear

In my eyes I see no one else but you
There's no other love like our love And yes, oh yes, I'll always want you near me I've waited for you for so long

Lady, your love's the only love I need And beside me is where I want you to be 'Cause, my love, there's somethin' I want you to know You're the love of my life, you're my lady!

Lady was written by Lionel Richie specifically for Kenny Rogers. It reached #1 in 1980.

This should be George's personal theme song. It is called, "We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off" by Jermaine Stewart (1986)

Lyrics to We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off:

Not a word, from your lips
You just took for granted that I want to skinny dip
A quick hit, that's your game
But I'm not a piece of meat, stimulate my brain
Night is young, so are we
Let's get to know each other better, slow and easily
Take my hand, let's hit the floor
Shake our bodies to the music
Maybe then you'll score

So come on baby, won't you show some class
Why you want to move so fast

We don't have to take our clothes off
Just to have a good time
Oh no
We could dance and party all night
And drink some cherry wine
Uh huh

We don't have to take our clothes off
Just to have a good time
Oh no
We could dance and party all night
And drink some cherry wine
Uh huh

Na na na na na na na....

Just slow down if you want me
A man wants to be approached
Cool and romantically
I've got needs just like you
Give me conversations
Good vibrations through and through

So come on baby, won't you show some class
Why you want to move so fast

We don't have to take our clothes off
Just to have a good time
Oh no
We could dance and party all night
And drink some cherry wine
Uh huh

So come on baby, won't you show some class
Why you want to move so fast

We don't have to take our clothes off
Just to have a good time
Oh no
We could dance and party all night
And drink some cherry wine
Uh huh
We don't have to take our clothes off
Just to have a good time
Oh no
We could dance and party all night
And drink some cherry wine
Uh huh
Na na na na na na na...
