Goldie

Goldie Hawn shows off her golden throat.

Somewhere between the end of her stint on Laugh-In and her reincarnation as a movie star, Goldie Hawn thought she'd give singing a try. On this 1972 Warner Brothers release, simply titled "Goldie", Hawn teams up with the likes of Porter Wagoner, Dolly Parton, and Buck Owens to produce a country album, covering material from Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Paul Stookey and many others.

Lots of celebrities had secondary careers as recording artists in the 70's, most with laughable results (see Telly elsewhere on this site for a prime example). But Goldie Hawn actually pulls it off. Listening to her country crooning on this album, you could imagine her going on to become the next Olivia Newton-John. Judging by the success of Goldie's recent acting efforts, it might actually have been a better career move for her in the long run.

Songs:

Butterfly (MP3) It's a sappy enough song in English, but to hear Goldie Hawn sing it in French is enough to melt hardened steel.
I'll Be Your Baby Tonight (MP3) Bob Dylan she isn't, but Goldie can be my baby any time.

This lp by Jane Morgan has some super cuts...a couple of my favorites are "Daydream" and "These Boots Are Made For Walking." What a voice and what a lady. Probably the only pop singer to study opera...as her mom was an opera singer and pianist. Check Jane out on YouTube. (04-10-2010)

Goldie, I know you're in your 60's and your a jew but girl I would drink your bath water. (11-05-2008)

Your sarcastic Golden Throat comment recalls a line and scene in Private Benjamin, but I'm not sure if the connection was deliberate. (10-21-2008)

there's nothing wrong with her voice, and it was very appropriate for those times. her voice is very natural. not like the generic American Idol voices of today, with 20,000 notes in one phrase. i'd put on a Goldie record quicker than a Beyonce CD any day. (03-09-2008)

Daniel Selby says:
I happen to like most of the songs on this LP. Goldie is not the best singer, but I have heard much worse trust me! I like this LP and bought the CD reissue as well as the LP. To those who put her down I have this to ask: How many LP's have you recorded and sold? (08-31-2007)

I haven't heard this album but....I wish I had it!
She was featured on a George Martin (Beatles producer)compilation album called 'In My Life' released in 2006 singing "A Hard Days Night" as if it were a torch song from the fifties and it was absolutly wonderful. You might want to give the album a listen as it has Jim Carrey singing "I Am the Walrus" which is a real hoot. A beautiful acoustic guitar rendition of "Here Comes the Sun" by John Williams. Oh yes, Phil Collins kicks ass on the "Golden Slumbers Medley". (03-12-2007)

I have just listened to Goldie's songs "Buterfly" and I never realized Goldie had such a beautiful voice. Goldie, you can be my baby any time.. Keep up the good work and love your your movies. (09-22-2006)

David Piercy (piercydavid@hotmail.com) says:
I knew Goldie's mom, Laura in Takoma Park, Md...she was a super nice lady and had a good sense of humor. I met Goldie once when she just started to get popular. She was as sweet as can be...I like MOST of the songs on her lp. Too bad it wasn't better promoted. I think it still might have a chance if rereleased on CD. (03-11-2006)

Brian (Brianeh203@aol.com) says:
LOVE GOLDIE!...BUT
THIS LP IS HORRIBLE AND WAS NOT WELL DONE.
I GOT A MINT COPY OF IT A YEAR AGO AND WISHED I NEVER BOUGHT IT..
JUST NOT A GOOD CHOICE OF MUSIC FOR HER , AND SHE IS NOT THE BEST SINGER. (03-07-2006)

A propos de Butterfly : Absolutely Not Vérigoud!
It was simply awful!
Cependant! His French is not awful! Parbleu!

Bob says:
When I was a kid, I thought Goldie was so hot on Laugh-in. She is still hot. If Kurt Russell dumps her, I would like to be her love slave anytime. (01-23-2005)

OHMYGOD! Goldie Hawn is the end of the world. She is so hot! Still! (12-27-2004)

I have not had access to the internet. Have been working. Doing things. I am reading now. Feeling that urge. Need to fulfill me urges. I need to see my friend that I made here. Where is he? I will find him. Will watch him this week. (+) (12-05-2004)
