Listen to the Music
There are some who sing to the music and others who listen. I like to sing at times - mostly I love to really listen to the music. Especially good music - I like to focus on the instruments - bass guitar, rhythm guitar, drums, piano - some backgrounds have orchestras and I love to try and listen to just that. Or if the singer is especially gifted, I enjoy hearing THEIR voice - not mine or yours!
Then there are the ones who love to sing to the music. Fine and dandy if you are the only one, listening to it. I don't want to listen to someone else, slaughter a really good song, just because they want to sing to it. Most people believe they have a better singing voice than they really do. I mean, look at American Idol? My ex-husband thought he had such a good voice. He was ALWAYS singing to the radio. The louder I would turn up the volume, the louder he sang! Finally, I had to just be rude and tell him, "I want to hear so-in-so sing, not you."
Drives me nuts.
My step daughter, Char does this. She sings really loud and I can't even decipher the song or the voice. I've told her - she doesn't get offended- she just forgets and says with a smile, "Oh Mom"
When I am alone, yeah, I'll sing to my heart's content but it's for my ears ONLY.
Years ago - when I was in the 4th grade our class was singing in a program at school. I loved to sing and would sing very loud and proud. The teacher came up to me just before we went on, to tell me to just "mouth the words." It crushed my spirit. For years, I wouldn't let anyone hear me sing.
Maybe that is why I am so annoyed by loud singers.
