Shower Singing

Shower Singing - Your voice. A thousand times better.

I don't know the scientific explanation for this but my voice sounds great when I'm singing in the shower. Not a single note out of key. Maybe it's the ceramic tiles' acoustic or the water splashing. It's just different when I'm singing outside of the bathroom. Have you noticed this too?

even the beatles use bath room to practise :) I read it on a book about the beatles. John Lennon said that the acoustic of bathroom is very good so they often practise there on Lennon's house bathroom. I must agree it is maybe caused by the ceramic and the shape of bathroom so it can produiced a vefy good acoustic.

I don't know how to call it but it's like Optical Illusion to the ears I have to agree with you. It's Mariah Carey in there, not me. Yeah, how come?

I haven't studied this before because i seldom sing when i have a shower. It takes me very short time to have a shower so i don't sing. I don't know singing while showering is so wonderful as you mention. I would like to try sometimes in the near future .

It's partly the effect of quite a lot of reveberation (echos from the walls mainly, ceramic tiles are quite hard) and the size of the room. A normal sized shower will amplify the frequency range most people use when singing, this also makes it easier to sing in tune I think. I don't sing anywhere really, maybe sometimes when driving on my own but normally not.

Yeah, I must agree that I am also a shower-singer or bath room singer. I am not sure whether I am better singer while taking shower or not, But I normally d0 not sing outside as I am terrible singer. :)
