Which television actors sang these Top 40 pop hits?

Talk about multitalented stars!

Some actors are an embarrassment of talent. They can make you laugh, make you cry… and make you dance.

Pop music and television took off around the same time together. No wonder there have been many crossover successes over the decades.

I still wonder how many people bought the Lorne Greene song Ringo because they thought it was about the Beatles drummer. It even includes the word “star”.

I wonder how many still bought a Lorne Greene recording after they heard him (along with Roberts, Blocker and Landon) sing the "Bonanza" theme. [I believe that was in the first episode.]

So what about DAVID CASSIDY who played Keith on The Partridge Family? They needed to give him some sort of nod.

Missed 2 questions. Missed Bruce Willis, picked Hasselhoff and missed Jim Backus, picked Tina Louise. David Soul's song "Don't Give Up On Us Baby" is a great slow song. Let me tell you, George Maharis can sing!! Got all his albums 😊

12 out of 12. Had to guess on George Maharis (I would've thought Richard Chamberlain, but he wasn't an option) and Andy Griffith.

11/12. Missed #10.

I still have the vinyl 45s of #s 1, 4, and 7, and the CD of "The Return of Bruno" by Bruce Willis (which includes "Respect Yourself").
