Just wondering, how many of you sing in the shower? What do you sing? Are you any good at it, or is it best left in the shower, with the door closed?



I sing in the shower, and anywhere else I darn well feel like it! I sing different songs in the shower than I do when other people can hear. Mostly girl power stuff that people get sick of me spouting off at them! I am quite good, I would say. The bathroom has great acoustics!

Who doesn't sing in the shower? :P I sound fantastic singing Christina Aguilera's stripped album in the shower. Well at least, I think I sound good .. my family tells me otherwise.

I sing anytime i'm bored, whether it be in the shower, in the car, walking across my college's campus, where ever.
My favorite shower selections are mostly from musicals, esp. Phantom, RENT, and Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. I also find myself belting random 80's rock ranging from "Stairway to Heaven" to "Dancin' With Myself" to "Crazy in the Night." I also occasionally find myself singing lots of Billy Joel songs and occasionally things like "White Rabbit."
I am actually pretty good at singing considering that I can't read music. I'm a natural female tenor with a secondary alto range. I sing in my college's chamber choir and have done two stints in two different church choirs.

"Stairway" isn't 80's rock...it's 60's rock. But I, too, find myself singing Billy Joel...not just in the shower but EVERYWHERE! I can't get his songs out of my head.

There is always a song in my head. I am always humming something. I have been told my voice is good. Thank goodness as I am sure I could be very annoying to be around otherwise.

I not only sing in the shower, but I play air guitar!! I'm sure if I saw it on video I'd probably wet myself.

I'm a terrible singer, and I'm sure my family and friends would all agree. I sound good in my head, but when I listen to myself on tape I could vomit.

I only sing in the shower if no-one is home, or if everyone is asleep. I do however sing freely along with any music that is playing that I know.

I have been told that I'm pretty good, but I wouldn't want to scare anyone just in case.

I will sing loudly in the car on my way to or from work, and I will sing in the car if my son is in with me.

His words on the subject -

"You a terrible singer, mum"!!!!

That's what every child thinks of their mother's singing. I just beg mine not to sing when there's anyone but family in the car.

It's a wee bit hypocritical of my tone-deaf son who insists on singing Hank Williams songs and sounding like a wounded cat being strangled!

You know you're a mum when you enjoy the dreadful sound of your child singing!

I don't know about the shower but I sing at work to whatever songs they are playing and it drives everyone crazy!
I personally think they are just jealous because i am so fantastic at it. =)

My mum must have been pretty tolerant then.

As children my sisters and I would sing loudly along to whatever music was playing in the car, usually the "horrible modern stuff" my mum hated.

On Australian Idol apparently they have a competition where people can enter their mums to sing against other mums.

I would enter mine...but I couldn't bear the shame.

I can honestly say I've never sang in the shower. I tend to sing in the car when I'm alone.

I sang along to an mp3 once at home and my other half heard me and started raving about how good I sounded. Oh please... I'm ok but not that good! Now he tries to badger me to sing and gets upset when I won't.

No way, my wife would leave me. But I do sing when driving alone, when I'm not listening to the news or the morning show. Which limits my singing to not very much. Which is probably a good thing.

I sing all the time...when someone is talking and says something that is in a song I start singing the song...I'm ALWAYS singing. It's probably really annoying.

I used to sing in the shower when I was single and no one could hear me. I sound just awful and I know it. A speech therapist once told me that I wasn't tone deaf; I could hit the correct note, it just took hitting several other notes to get there. So now I only sing in the car when I'm alone.

Better that than my sister, she hits a note (the wrong one) then takes a 5 mile journey around all of the notes on the piano before she hits the right one. Where do I sign her up for yodelling...

That's not really nice, wisconsin. I can say that my husband doesn't sing in the shower either. Or anywhere else for that matter, not even in church. We've been married for almost eight years and I've never heard him sing. Somebody must have told him that he sounds awful because no amount of coaxing will get him to sing, not even for my birthday!
