30 (Soft) Rock: Tina Fey Duets With Chistopher Cross

Stop The Presses!

Is there anything Tina Fey can't do? She's an actress, screenwriter, genius Palin impersonator...and now she's a songstress of sorts, teaming with Grammy-winning '80s soft-rocker Christopher Cross on the upcoming "30 Rock" soundtrack.

The bizarre track, "Lemon's Song," is based on a scene from the show's fourth season, and kicks off with Tina's iconic character Liz Lemon whining about her ex-boyfriend Floyd and fantasizing about her life turning out just like a sappy Cross ballad. Then Christopher chimes in...and the whole production gets pretty weird. The tune is actually billed in a press release as "probably the most awkward song on a soundtrack ever made"--although we assume by "awkward," the show's PR team means "awesome."

"Pucker up and give the world a kiss," Christopher croons to the sour Lemon, as lite-radio Mangione-style horns swell in the background. "Miss Lemon, the sweet life waits for you."


The two-disc "30 Music" soundtrack, featuring music composed by Tina's husband Jeff Richmond and a tune by modern-day soft-rocker Michael Bublé, is out November 16--and it's no lemon! Here's the full tracklisting:
