Well...the hubby earned his way through college singing and playing guitar in coffee houses in The Village...way back when. You know...the 60's. He still plays. He has a song called 'Picture' I think by Sheryl Crowe and Kid Rock, that he had to sing with a friend who plays the lounge at a local casino here. So....he puts on the sound track and asked me to sing Sheryl Crowe's part. Holy Moly. I didn't think I was that bad. He tried not to laugh. I am HORRIBLE. If I sing outloud it's by sheer mistake. Because of my Meniere's Disease, I'm very deaf but I can still hear myself and I know I am NOT GOOD. I'm not kidding...when I started to sing our dog Dylan got up off his bed and went into the living room. Hmmm.
I love music and I love to sing. My DH says I sound good, but I think he's being kind. My brother asked me yrs ago NOT to sing around him, it hurt his ears. I always wished I had a good singing voice, my father had a beautiful voice. I can still hear his voice in my head sometimes. I will sing while I'm in the kitchen, the shower, the car. I would sing and dance w/ my babies and they loved it. I was just talking to my son about when he was a few months old, I would hold him and sing and dance w/ him and he would just giggle so hard. He loved to 'dance' to NY, NY by F. Sinatra when it was new and so was he.
My precious puppy thinks I sound wonderful when I sing to him, so for him, I'll do it.
Donna, I like that song 'Picture', my DD laughs each time it comes on, just finds it hard to believe 'Mom' likes Kid Rock. Ah, youth is wasted on the young!
As is said, 'Sing as if no one is listening!' If it gladens your heart, do it, you're not hurting anyone.
God bless. Alice.
