Scarlett Johansson – Anywhere I Lay My Head (2008)

Hey, everybody, my name’s Mike, but I go by the handle of Chinballs (it’s a South Park reference). I live in beautiful Buenos Aires, Argentina, and was one of the high finishers in the music contest RLSLOG ran last week. I hope to bring you guys some of the best musical posts and keep a high standard in what you see my name attached to here.

This is the new Scarlett Johansson album, Anywhere I Lay My Head. The album consists of 10 Tom Waits covers and 1 original song, and has created quite a buzz, not only because of the performer, with Scarlett arguably being the most beautiful woman in Hollywood but because of the content, as Tom Waits songs are pretty revered among some crowds. The project has interested me, and I’m actually going to listen to this almost as soon as I post it.

You’ve heard what Scarlett has to say about covering Tom Waits, you’ve read what Bowie has to say about her covering Tom Waits, shit you’ve even seen what Tom Waits has to say about ScarJo covering Tom Waits. NOW IT’S TIME TO HEAR HER COVER TOM WAITS.

The record’s called Anywhere I Lay My Head, and the first cover to convert its way into internet friendly streamability is the title track. As Sitek told us on a snowy night a few months back, he was going for a “cough syrup/Tinkerbell” vibe throughout. That night we complained that Sitek’s dense production tended to bury her vocal — drowning Tinker Bell in the cough syrup, to fuck with the metaphor. We walked out thinking it was a swell sounding Sitek album, and Scarlett was guesting. This is just the first helping, but see how the syrup suits you.

    OMFG did no one listen to this b4 they released this………..it`s cult classic horrible………it`s like finger nails on a chalk board . I think they should use this to rehabilitate prisoners .Come back to THIS prison and we will play “Scarlett Johansson`s – Anywhere I Lay My Head” in your cell till your head explodes ………….I`m thinkin it would work REAL good for teh gangbangers

    May 16th, 2008 | 07:06

  19. upx
    May 16th, 2008 | 07:19

    That was truly awful.
    When it comes to actresses singing, I prefer these songs;
    - Jennifer Love Hewitt (Barenaked, Cool with you, It’s good to know I’m alive, Never a day goes by, Don’t throw it all away),
    - Gywneth Paltrow (Bette Davis Eyes, Crusin’, Just My Imagination), or even,
    - Emmy Rossum (Slow Me Down)

    By the way, welcome to Rlslog, Chinballs.
    I hope you realize that my harsh criticism of Scarlett’s album was not a reflection of you, your efforts, or this site.
    I really do appreciate you all.
    I was very curious about what the CD sounded like, and well, now I know. ;-)

  24. wow
    May 16th, 2008 | 07:36

    Yeah. I downloaded it. And listened.

    And my ears may never forgive me.

    May 16th, 2008 | 08:11
  32. Yes
    May 16th, 2008 | 08:13

    Yes because if there’s one name that is synonymous with good music, it’s “ChinBalls”.

    Evidently Scarlet sucked a lot of balls to get this album made. Which makes her chin sloppy.

    Sorry, I got nothing here. This is a bankrupt idea, further loaded under the weight of ChinBalls’ selection.

  33. NotStupider
    May 16th, 2008 | 08:22

    WoW, not a single positive review. Why is it that actors once they make connections in Hollywood think they’re some kind o’ triple threat??? If she wasn’t so dead sexy, this would sink her, but she defanitly needs to fire her representation for letting her even do this, LOL

  34. MAXp0wr
    May 16th, 2008 | 08:33

    Lol @20 (upx). You’re joking yeah?

    I would rather balls in my ears than listen to that again!
    F*ck me, it’s horrible.

    I don’t usually hate on other peoples music but for this I make an exception.

    Uh…This is not even Tom Waits!
    I doubt that this is even Scarlett.
    This is probably some local band trying to
    get there music downloaded and heard.

    Love most of the comments, BTW.

    “My penis just turtled” was the funnest.

  39. pee pants
    May 16th, 2008 | 08:59

    Its Tom Waits, how else is she supposed to cover that crap?

    She actually has an incredible voice, apparently not while covering Waits though…

  40. QuadrupelQ
    May 16th, 2008 | 09:48

    “…Scarlett arguably being the most beautiful woman in Hollywood…”

    Yes, I’d argue about that.

    Some says this CD is just average good and that actors/actresses must never try singing career. Well, I desagree. I love this CD. Very nice musics and nice dreamy tone. I recommend the nice “I Don’t Wanna Grow Up”

  51. terminator

    Am I the only one that actually liked this album? I’ve loved her voice from when she sang in Lost in Translation and have always wanted to hear an album from her and this one certainly works!

    It’s not the normal teen-bob music and that’s one of the best things about it. She has such a deep, soul-full voice that’s both mellowing and hypnotizing at the same time. It’s definitely not the average, cookie-cutter stuff that passes for music these days and I say she did a damn fine job at breathing new life into some of Tom Waits classics.

    The only other thing I can say – and not that it’s a bad thing – is that the songs tended to blend together. I wasn’t sure when one song ended and the next began.

  78. Adam Junes
    May 16th, 2008 | 15:57

    quite possibly the worst singing voice i’ve had the misfortune to hear in my entire life. its truly terrible. ive got as far as the third song and i’ve had to take a break. she can’t sing and she’s also singing a style of music that#s just not suited to a glamorous piece of ass, but a down and dirty hobo like Tom waits its a bad deal all around frankly.

  79. Byron
    May 16th, 2008 | 16:02

    this wasn’t very good. i just listened to the two first songs and noticed there was saxophone in them. who thinks that saxophone is an instrument with an enjoyable sound? people using saxophone in their productions nowadays have no clue of anything. it’s not even OK in ska. it’s so damn 90′s. There’s a lowbudget tv-show from the 90′s which is called nightman, and the main character plays the sax, i always think of that when i hear saxophone. i really hate it. it both sounds AND looks ugly.

  86. carlitos
    May 16th, 2008 | 17:45

    This is really bad, her voice is absolutely awful. I hadn’t read any reviews so I had no idea what to expect, a couple of minutes while skipping through the tracks and I think this is Al Qaidas latest weapon against the west. That bad.

    OK, Like a few already I thought, “WTF? Surely it can’t be ‘that’ bad”

    Hmmm… when the first track started and it sounded like someone let loose with the church organ I wasn’t so sure… wait a little and Lisa Simpson comes in blowing the horn and thankfully the 150 seconds are soon gone and we hit track 2 which does indeed have Sinead O’Connor overtones but I was thinking it sounded more like a 40yr old Scarlett singing, whilst trying to kick her 60 a day habit… Perhaps it’s me but the vocals sound more like backing vocals, that damn wah wah effect drowns everything… it might sound good if I could hear her clearly…
    I couldn’t make the whole album in one sitting, some sounded better than others but if I’m honest I’ll say only 4 of the 11 tracks might see their way onto my ipod… I suffer from insomnia but this wouldn’t cure it, it would only make wind me up so that I’d end up throwing things at the speakers to get it to shut up!

    Mr Omneo gives it 2 out of 10

    Its a pretty solid album, actually.

    Bunch of idiots…

    If it weren’t Scarlett Johansson, no one would be bagging on it.
