I don't think this is in the same league as those two, but this makes me cringe.

That's not the same - Dolly can sing.

Oh dear, that's bad. :biggrin:

For some reason, I thought of this.

To be fair, the Leonard Teale effort was meant to be a joke. In 1989/90 Andrew Denton wrote and hosted a series of TV shows called The Money or the Gun. For each episode someone was invited to perform a cover of Stairway to Heaven. Teale was a TV actor. He was not a singer. He knew he was not a singer. Everybody knew he could not sing his way out of a paper bag. Yet he accepted the invitation. So, yeah, he totally wrecked it on purpose. For the fun of it. Or perhaps for the money. Or the gun. Who knows?
