Musical Montage: Robert Downey Jr

As it seems likely that the end of this week will see the end of Robert Downey Jr’s run as Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame, it seems like a good time to take a look at his dabbling into music for Musical Montage.  RDJ sang a number of songs on the soundtracks for some of his movies like Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, Chaplin and, Friends and Lovers but his biggest musical endeavor was an album in 2004 called The Futurist.  RDJ wrote all the songs on the album with the exception of a cover of “Smile” by Charlie Chaplin and “Your Move” that is a cover of the first half of the song “I’ve Seen All Good People” by Yes.  The album debuted at #121 on the Billboard charts and sold 16,000 copies in the first week but it recieved mixed reviews and RDJ has said he would probably not do another album, as he felt the results did not match the effort it took to create and he would rather spend time with his family then in the studio.  RDJ also performed a song for the Ally McBeal: A Very Ally Christmas album, a cover of Joni Mitchell song “River”.  Check out some of RDJ’s tracks below.
