Accidents can and did happen,
This review is from: The Decca Years 1959-1964 (Audio CD)
When former child actor Anthony Newley spoofed Elvis for a movie called Idle on Parade he ended up opening the gates to a succesful career as a singer.
He covered American hits and America covered some of his eg Do you mind (Andy Williams) and Bee Bom (Sammy Davis Jr.) What kind of fool am I was covered by dozens and is heard here in its American version
Probably given more control over what he recorded than many others he charted with a nursery rhyme (Pop goes the weasel) and drawing room ballads from the turn of the century (I'll walk beside you).
His real forte though was the Musical and in 1992 he played Scrooge in a new stage adaption based on the Albert Finney movie
