Post Mr. MacAffee- How important is singing?
When I did Birdie, one of my friends came to see me and commented on how bad of a singer our Mr. MacAffee was. That got me to thinking: Is Mr. MacAfee *supposed* to be a good singer? Because out of his two songs, neither of them seem to be written to compliment a trained singer. What do you guys think?

The movie tells alot about his singing.Its not really suposed to be bad but he can`t really win a grammy.

The guy who's playing our Mr. McAfee can't sing, and neither can Mrs. McAfee. (who is actually going to be played by my mother.)

there is a difference between not bein a trained singer and being a bad singer. you should never have a bad singer in a singing role. you can however have actor's who can carry a tune and make the songs their own.

paul Lynde is the role model for all McAffees. He is on key and he brings his one of a kind sense of humor to the songs. and god what timing!
