close your eyes

I am a vocal person. Not vocally talented, just vocal. I am a talker. blah, blah, blah. I talk. I talk to myself too. (completely normal)
With me being vocal, it should not be surprising that I like to sing in the shower. A few weeks ago I resurrected one of my favorite shower songs.

It was one of the 4 songs in my shower singing repertoire. I was in my early teens that these were sung religiously in the shower. I thought I sounded AMAZING. The shower does have amazing acoustics.
I was singing "Eternal Flame", and Mel stuck her head in the bathroom and started singing along too. Did I mention that we are both great singers? ha ha.

What were the other 3 songs that I loved to sing?

Too Many Walls by Cathy Dennis
The Star Spangled Banner
A Child's Prayer

Last week we heard our other roommate Amber singing Jingle Bells in the shower. It made us giggle.

Do you sing in the shower? You should. It is fun. Do it. If you are shy, forget that. Everyone sounds amazing whilst singing in the shower.

I remember when that video was on MTV. I don't sing in the shower. Maybe it's because of my Mom singing all the time. Yuck!! I think I'm scarred.

One of my old roommates would sing "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" in Spanish and also stomp along with the rhythm.

Confession time - one of my most embarrasing moments was at a stake dance. I was running the music when this song came on. Of course I was singing along with the tape enthralled in the song. Only to find out later that while no one could actually hear my singing the light for the setup was set directly on my mouth and everyone could see me singing my heart out....sooooo embarrased!!!

So I must be attracted to shower singers (not that I'm "attracted" to you but I like you!). Tyson just mentioned to me that he used to sing The Star Spangled Banner and A Child's Prayer in the shower too. He says that I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas (the Home Alone version) is a fun one to sing I had a roommate that would sing The Muffin Man song. Ha Ha! I've never been much of a shower singer myself, but maybe I'll try it. Thanks for the encouragement. :)
