Bad Singers


A friend swears that she was asked to perform in an opera as well as in a Broadway play because of her great singing voice.

I'd never heard her sing before, until recently, during American Idol, which I watch frequently enough with her and her husband. I cannot state it any more emphatically: The woman cannot carry a tune and is completely and totally tone deaf. T-o-n-e  d-e-a-f.

I'm staying home this week. I can watch AI on my own television.

And the worst singers always sing the loudest. Apparently, it's the law.

I sing really loudly. But only when I'm alone.

How do I get you alone Beckeye?

I can't sing unless I'm drunk and / or alone. So, I sing often is what I'm saying.

I don't watch AI because of all the bad singing. Imagine having that bad singing right there in the room with you and no volume control .... blech.

I've sung in choirs, choruses, grade school productions, you name it. I still stink at singing.

I'd like to hear both Becky and Dale singing alone and drunk. Or together and drunk. Either way should be amusing. I'd even go for stone cold sober and singing.

Sushiboy, the bad singers depart right about now. Last night was amazing in terms of the talent. This is probably the best crop of talent I've ever seen on AI.

I vaguely remember posting me singing "Wild Mountain Thyme."
Apparently I'm big in Botswana.

Sans, I hear you're a hit in Namibia as well. The people there have all your albums.
Even though you have funny feet.

It's the funny feet that give me the vocal height. I need to check if I have royalties coming...

You could be rich and not know it. If your royalties do make you rich, you could get plastic surgery on your feet. :)

I went to my friends' home on Thursday to watch AI, even though I said I wouldn't.

She sang.

Punishment enough.
