Tina Fey aiming for a Grammy with “30 Rock” soundtrack tune?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: She’s on a hit television show. She lent her voice to the number one movie in the country. And now Tina Fey is setting her sights on the Billboard charts.

The former “Saturday Night Live” comedienne is taking a page from Gwyneth Paltrow’s playbook and has recorded a song. Well, she speaks before a song. Titled “Lemon’s Theme,” it is a duet with Christopher Cross that will be featured on the “30 Rock” soundtrack, which will be in stores on Nov. 16.

Wait, “30 Rock” has a soundtrack? What else could be on that disc besides the sitcom’s bouncy theme song?

As for Fey’s track, you can listen to a sample of the ballad on THR.

It begins with a clip pulled from “30 Rock” before transitioning into a full-blown Cross tune that could have been part of his beloved “Arthur” songbook. It probably won’t score the Emmy winner a Grammy, so she’s still a long way off from beating Tracy Morgan to EGOT status. But it might make its way to someone’s iTunes by lunch.
