Rick Springfield (Dr. Noah Drake, General Hospital)We admire soap opera stars for their brilliant work.  We adore the way they can over exaggerate even the most mundane emotions, and keep us in suspense, day after day, month after month, and year after year.

Loyal soap opera fans will follow their fave stars  to hell and back. We become engrossed and almost addicted to their on-screen personalities, and we follow their lives religiously off-screen, too.

Soap opera stars are utopic idols in situations we can only dream to be a part of. But many of the soap stars we've come to love aren't limited to their acting skills. Some of them have dabbled successfully in the  music arena, and have even gone on to attain even further super-stardom.

While you may not be able to think of any particular soap opera stars or song titles off-hand, when you read on, you'll be hustling to download music at  These hits have gone straight to the top, and a couple of these stars have actually left acting all together, to pursue successful endeavors in the  area of  music. We hope these tunes will happily help you wax nostalgic, and have you humming along in no time:

If the words "Paging Dr. Noah Drake" summon feelings of nostalgia with you, then you remember Rick Springfield in the 80s. He was one of the most beloved characters on General Hospital, and while he did maintain a role through an early portion of the 2000s, his music is primarily what makes him famous. His singing style is pure rock and roll, and he's famous on American turf, as well as the rest of the world.
