I wish I was more musical. I love music but have no musical talent of my own at all! Ha. I cannot sing and have no ability to play an instrument. Even when people are like "Oh that sounded flat," half the time I'm just thinking they sounded good, haha. But I love music. And I love all kinds from oldies to rock to rap to pop to r&b. Little Red Riding Hood by Steppenwolf and Leader of the Pack by Shangri-Las are some classics. Dreaming While You Sleep by Gensis, actually most of Gensis is great. I use to rock out to No Son of Mine on replay when I was younger. Ha! I also went through a hardcore Michael Jackson phase when Free Willy came out. O and I can't forget my teeny-bopper stage, 'Nsync baby!! But I will say the first CD I ever bought was Hootie and the Blowfish, Cracked Rear View. Still have it.
I was cleaning out my closet and found some old CDs I made back in high school. And high school was 2000-2004. Man, there is some hardcore rap on those CDs haha. Old school Eminem, where he is not very nice. I have Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre and Tupac. Best part is I remember all the songs! I played the CD and it just came flooding back to me. I also found some of my country CDs. It was like finding gold! haha.
The shower is one of my favorite places to listen to music. I just make a playlist fitting my mood and crank it up. It is also good physical therapy! The heat and steam from the shower breaks up the junk in my lungs and I hack it up! I sing along to my music as well and that helps with lung capacity and such. I can't hold my notes as long as say, Sarah McLachlan or Christina Aguilera but I sure do give it a try. Its good for me! If I'm feeling extra spunky I may even dance a little bit. Of course I becareful not to fall because that would not be helpful. The car is my other favorite place to rock out. I just crank it up and belt out the words. Other people are probably looking at me thinking, "Crazy!" Haha but whatevs its my own world.
I usually only sing in the car when I'm by myself, because I stink at it, haha. But sometimes I'll sing with my parents or Grandma. My Grandma cracks me up because she is always amazed at how many different types of songs I know. She has asked me thousands of times how I remember all those lyrics, and I don't have an answer. I just do. I don't have a great memory, I forget things, A LOT. But songs, haha, I guess thats my talent. Now if only I could actually sing on-key.....
