Happy Wednesday….we are on the downward slope to the weekend. I was planning on linking up today with Kathy
for her midweek hump day confessions. However I confess
that last night I did some of this
Hair flip at the end included….and a tad bit of this…
Therefore I couldn’t get my act together. So let’s reconvene with my crazy girl confessions
next week. In the meantime let me entertain you with my thoughts on car singing.
I was driving home the other day from work and this song came on.
Now I know I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again. Sometimes I get real possessive when it comes to songs. I mean I feel like I discovered this song forever ago…it was my cool down song for spin for like at least 2 months. Then when I hear it on the radio I get like really odd and defensive about it “oh okay that’s totally my song now you are going to mainstream and ruin it”…does anyone else get that way? Or am I just a totally weirdo? I just hate how songs get played out so quickly when they hit the radio!
The original version doesn’t have Ms. Christina
I’m not going to lie I actually like her. I hate to admit it I was her for Halloween like all 4 years of college…mainly it was an easy costume I could pick from my closet…small skirt big heels check. One year I got quite creative and did her outfit from the Dirrty (oh yes there are two r’s I double checked) video. I even got fake black colored hair weave and braided it into my hair. I couldn’t get it out of my hair right away because that plastic hair weave was so knotty. I had to wear it to class the next day…oh that looks I got from people on the bus and in class…..Hahhahahhaha can we still be friends after I told you that?….I have pictures but don’t think they are appropriate my mother reads my blog. Hi mom love you!
Totally how I felt when I was 20 and living in Gainesville….it’s embarrassing that’s for sure
Anyways moving on…. I really like her when she is not overpowering a song.
I had to literally triple take when I saw she was in this song. I literally said out loud “there is no way that is Christina…she is not completely hogging the song and overdoing the high notes”. However for once in her life she kept it tame and let the other person be heard! What a concept.
Ok getting back to the original story. So this song was on and I was really feeling it….it was a Friday….I was on my way home…I was making a 4:30 Barre Class for once because my patient’s were actually on time….and this song comes on! So I start singing it….and then I’m getting really into it…..then I hear my singing over the music and y’all I cannot sing. I mean I prayed all the time when I was little I could sing just as good as Ariel (like from the little Mermaid). I would try to recreate this scene all the time in my backyard pool but Lord I could not sing. My poor parents probably needed earplugs.
So what do you do in the car when you can’t sing but really want to belt it out…..I’ll tell you what I do….turn that song even louder! Yes! Now you can’t hear me anymore and I’m blending in with the song at that high level and I’m sounding good. Like really good! Do you do that? Turn the radio up higher to drown out your own voice? Or are you blessed with a good singing voice?
Did anyone watch this show? I totally loved her and James Van Der Beek. Boooo for canceling it!
I have another story that I will share with you later about my next door neighbor who I think is auditioning for an off Broadway production. She belts out show tunes at all hours of the night…I think she is mocking my awful singing abilities.
Interestingly I don’t sing in the shower only in the car…hmmmmm.
Anyways I was just wondering about if anyone else does that while they car sing and wanted to share my random musings with you. For the ones out there who weren’t blessed with a beautiful singing voice do you do that same thing or am I the only one who tries to drown myself out while singing?
Have a fabulous day! Btw you can click on the little links below to follow me and all my wonderful random musings! xoxoxoxoxoxo.
