Sing It Loud, Sing It Proud...!

I know most people like to sing in the shower, but I sing in the car.  Especially on road trips.  Especially to my DH.  I think I wrote a few posts ago how he has some songs for me, but there are some songs he likes me to sing while we're driving.  I don't know why, but I have fun.  I'm usually softly singing to myself as we drive, but sometimes I really belt it out.  He joins in on some songs but usually always on the "wooh wooh's" when "Big Black Horse and a Cherry Tree" comes on.

Today we drove north to look at a car that he wanted to buy.  Several hours north, so there was ample opportunity for stretching the vocal cords.  Especially while singing Whitney.  I don't know how she did it, holding those long notes.  My favorite is "I Have Nothing;"  particularly when she sings the part, "...I have nothing, nothing, nothing" and then goes right into "don't make me close one more door" without taking a breath.  Whew...!  Can barely make it through... But, I love the challenge...

Where do you like to sing...?

How fun to take that road trip together, Veronica! That meant you weren't working! How cool too to pass the time by singing!!

Obviously singing at church and sometimes when I'm alone here, terribly tone deaf, so I try to limit where I sing and how loud I sing :)

Oh I love to sing in the car -- until I embarrass myself when I realize that the people in the car next to me at the traffic light are looking at me like I'm crazy! lol

While we were dating my husband sang a song to me in the car, and that has become "Our Song".
