Dawg, I'll actually stop the fast forward to watch that adorable commercial. It makes my heart swell.

It's one of the few commercials we leave the audio on for! If I'm in the kitchen and Himself is watching it in the living room, I join right in with singing. In the same key as Lee Marvin (or his voice-over). I'm glad no one told my choir director I can hit those notes. When I was in choir I sang 2nd soprano and liked it since it was the melody. I have trouble singing harmony...

Also one of MY favorite musicals and I stop what I'm doing to sing along. I also have the Lee Marvin version on my computer so I can listen to it whenever I want. I had it as an earworm the other day, just let it play...

Let's Talk TV

Love it, PF!

CG, I've always been an alto. I too sing it in the same range as Lee Marvin. (Guess that would be contralto.)

You are welcome! I have to say it is one of my favorite pieces of music.

Interestingly, at least to me, neither Lee Marvin nor Clint Eastwood had ever sung before in a movie, and didn't have any musical training.

Clint Eastwood is a jazz musician, has been since very early on, he just doesn't have a good singing voice.

About the subject of who can sing. Who ever told Willie Nelson he could sing?
I suspect the secret to success has to be in the delivery.
