Question of the Week #46

When did you last sing to yourself? to someone else?

Question 46 - Sing to MyselfThe answer to the first part of this question is always a few minutes ago. ‘Cause I’m constantly singing to myself. Sometimes it’s something from a Disney movie. Sometimes it’s Jason Mraz. Sometimes it’s a random praise song that was popular when I was involved with the BSU in college. Sometimes it’s “All About That Bass”. You just never know with me.

Question 46 - SerenadeAs for the second part of the question, are we exclusively talking about serenades? Or do we count karaoke? Or do we count the time I forgot I wasn’t alone in the house and began singing in the shower? Really, I don’t know. It’s been a very long time since I genuinely serenaded anyone. And when I say serenade, I mean I’m singing a song to a girl with the actual intention of trying to impress her with my angelic singing voice. I did sing at my cousin’s wedding last summer, meaning that I did sing to a whole mess of people sitting in the hot Nashville sun. I did call a girl once and sang “You Are My Sunshine” to her. But I was a kid, so I’m sure I’ve sung to someone since then. And that’s not really the song you want to sing when trying to impress a girl. Seriously, look up the lyrics for that song. It’s kind of depressing.

  1. I’m not known for spreading Christmas cheer, but I do sing to the baby fairly often while we dance. (Ok, I dance, he goes along for the ride and laughs hysterically when I dip him.) Singing full out rarely ever happens in front of others though, but I sing to myself a bunch.

    Sorry if you weren’t looking for audience participation here.

  2. I hum a lot. My family finds it annoying. I don’t even know I’m doing it. And it isn’t random humming. It’s a Journey song, or Adele, or Led Zeppelin. And I sing along to songs if there is no one near. I have a new co-worker who breaks into song a lot. A lot. It’s a sign of her happiness but I’m trying not to tell her it’s irksome to me. The one song that I continue to sing to my family when I serve cooked chicken, and it stopped being funny to them 20 years ago, is “Take, this broken wing…”
