    There's something about a guy who can sing that I find very attractive.

    Can you sing a full song?

    Or do the dogs run away when you start to belt out a tune?

    I can't sing well.....the wolves start howling when I try.

    Um... yes. I was vocalist of our little high school rock band. rawr yeAH! *cough*

    But nah, not anymore. I still have the 'ear', i.e. I'm not tone deaf and I can carry a tune, but I can't belt out certain pitches anymore.

    I've been singing for years. For those of you that think you can't sing at all...


    If you practice hard and train your vocal cords, you'd be surprised how well your singing voice can improve. icon_smile.gif

    Yup. I've always loved singing.

    Speaking of animals. Street cats start congregating when we sing outside the window. My roommate and I have tried it on several occassions. The neighbors stay indoors icon_smile.gif

    I think I'm a decent singer,
    I never had any music schooling, so I can't play an instrument or read a note sheet, but I have a pretty good ear. so I'm good at imitating/following a song and I instinctively know when something is in tune or not.

    Yes I do. Classically trained and all that, so not much outlet around here to belt one out...

    If I were captured by enemies of the state who said the only way I could save the world would be to sing a song to the satisfaction of an audience.... Well, you'd all have to bend round and kiss your asses good-bye.

    In fact I used to sing with a gay and lesbian Chorus, for a few years. But the fact I was able to pick up the music so effetely caused resentment to come my way; go figure.

    The last time I sang in public was in Hawai'i, and before I started to sing some-one yelled out "will we understand him" Because I'm an Aussie, an accent many Americans have trouble to understand. But while I sang " Your Song" the room was silent.

    People I work with ask why I have never done anything with it, as they tell me I have a wonderful sound?

    Yes I can sing a full song.

    YES!! I have sung all of my life, since I was about 5 or 6 years old. I have worked in a few different shows and done some fun small group events. I won a contest about 8 years ago and got to perform in a big theater for New Years Eve as one of the guests. It was awesome!! One of my goals is to make a Christmas CD. I already know all the songs I would put on there too. icon_biggrin.gif

    I can sing on key. I can carry the tenor section or harmonize. I do not, however, have a pretty voice, so soloing isn't really a good idea for me - better to just blend in.

    Ave Maria, well I like the Biebl and Rachmaninov because of the parts and the harmony.

    If it's the Bach/Gounod or the Schubert, I'll sit back and listen.

    (bf though, has a voice that knocks my socks off! icon_biggrin.gif)

    as a kid was in choir, but as an adult no, I can hold a note pretty well but belting out a song not so much.

    Not to say that I can't belt out a song but only in the shower where the world suddenly can't hear me.

    but seriously...i was in chorus as a kid and was in a few minor musical roles in high school (I usually did backstage roles..thats why). I can also sing in a rock sort of way..not just classical.

    Singing and cooking are two things that I really admire in a person if they can do one or both well....because I suck royally at each.

    Singing is my therapy. LOL

    I was a late bloomer and started right before graduating high school. I love singing as it's an honor to take this gift, put your ego aside, and just "tell the story" as one of my voice teachers would say. You pull the audience into a certain intimacy and share your energy with them and vice versa. It's the major reason I've never watched nor could get behind American Idol. Being able to touch a soul, help someone heal, & communicate on such a deep level isn't all that marketable. And most who have that ability know it shouldn't be abused or taken for granted.

    I've had the pleasure & honor of singing with San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus and currently, with Golden Gate Men's Chorus and as a soloist.

    When it happens, it's a beautiful connection between performer & audience.

    Nope, not well, but that doesn't stop me. I'm careful not to torture bystanders, though. I sing in big groups (where it doesn't matter) and in the car (where few can hear).
