Inspired by the AV club @TheOnion - there may be a fine line between acting and singing from the soul but I thought this'd be a fun list
  1. 1.
    Sylvia's Mother - Dr Hook
    Perfect story song. Shel Silverstein will be all over this list
  2. 2.
    A Front Row Seat To Hear Old Johnny Sing - Shel Silverstein
  3. 3.
    Buenas Tardes Amigo - Ween
    Read about it on The inspiration for my list
  4. 4.
    That's Me Trying - William Shatner
    Amazing stuff. This whole record is brilliantly acted, especially little moments like before the last song : "can you do one more take?" "always could do one more"
  5. 5.
    My Life Is Good / I Just Want You To Hurt Like I Do - Randy Newman
    So many Randy Newman songs can fit on this list
  6. 6.
    The Piano Has Been Drinking - Tom Waits
  7. 7.
    Drunk In Love - Beyoncé
    If she's supposed to sounds drunk as shit rambling through this song then mission accomplished
  8. 8.
    Warren Zevon - (all songs)
  9. 9.
    Bonnie and Clyde - Brigitte Bordot and Serge Gainsbourg
  10. 10.
    The Sing - Bill Callahan
    Maybe it's just the lyrics
  11. 11.
    Bang Bang - Nancy Sinatra
