I love my singing - others don't

I have always sung no matter where i am , i honestly didn;t think i was inflicting pain on anyone lol.I overheard my son talking to his girlfriend the other day asking her to politely decline any offers of playing Sing Star with me as he couldn't take much more of my wailing . At first i was mortified but then the evil side of my personality set in and i decided not to take no for an answer. The result of this was 2 excrutiating hours of " music" for them and 2 blissful hours of torturing them for me . I know this all seems a bit cruel and i won't do it again ( well not often ) but my mum used to do things like this to me so i feel honour bound to carry on the tradition of being an embarrasing mum . Please tell me there are others who can't resist acting up 2 their kids .

they say one can really improve if they keep on practicing, especially with voice teacher. there are several monotonous and out of tunes actors and actresses who learned how to sing after many years of us cringing. thanks to the patience of their voice teachers. happy mylotting

I think we all like to do this to our kids every once and awhile. A little payback for the many times they do it to us. As far as the singing goes, I think we all feel that we sing good and everyone else is bad. A couple of years ago, my 8 year old was in the car with my mom. She was just a singing along with the radio, and I guess Josh had enough of her singing and told her "Grandma you know I am a good singer and if you would be quiet you could hear me." She could only laugh and not get upset with him.

hi. well they say beauty is the eye of the beholder and maybe the ability to appreciate one's music ability, make that vocal ability is in the ears of the beholder... happy mylotting.

In my opinion you can not compare visual from aural. Singing out of tune is really very annoying especially when it's done for a long time :)

It doesn't matter if you can sing or not, I thought it was a great way of sharing time with your kid and her girlfriend! Good times. (Although I think it's better to be quiet at work)

I know just what you mean. My son is 14 and I love to wind him up in front of his mates!! Think he'd kill me if I sang in front of them.

Hi, I remember playing three mortal pieces of devotional music that is still remembered as a brutal torture by me to two of my childhood friends. Music, no doubt has an immense capacity in itself. Hey, have you thought about a Musical Warfare? Sounds pretty dangerous right? When I sing or play, I do it for myself. I don't really care about what other people might think of me. If you don't love me, you may surely leave me- this has always been my attitude towards my audience. Thanks

Singing is a good hobby. There's nothing wrong with it as long as you're not disturbing other people then it's fine, you can go on singing. There are really some people which can be annoying to listen at because of singing out of tune, it's very hard to listen and harsh for our ears.
