She & Him “In The Sun” Video

The only reason that I can imagine music fans cutting Zooey Deschanel a bit more slack than Scarlett Johansson in terms of their ability to carry a tune is the musical partners they’re associated with: Deschanel M. Ward, and Johansson Pete Yorn. Or maybe it’s just the general vibe of lavishness that accompanies Yorn & Johansson, regardless of what their music sounds like. That said, I’ve never been able to appreciate Deschanel any more than Johansson because when listening to each, they’re both a bit throaty at times, both a bit flat at times, and both ultimately backed by talented musicians (though my personal taste leans away from Yorn’s brand of pop-inspired crooning). That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy each of them for their distinct sound, but just that they’re equally enjoyable in terms of what it is their music actually sounds like… And if nothing else, they’re both abnormally gorgeous, so even if this music-thing doesn’t work out for them, I’m sure they won’t have a hard time finding something to fall back on.
