Magpie #153.......

Charlotte Gainsbourg, AnOther


Unlike Charlotte
My voice has no power
I can only sing while in the shower

LOL shower does make your voice more power. a Cathedral works even better!!

not alone

Stafford Ray said...

Sweet, but I must be a grumpy old man because it seems to me technology has replaced talent. An ordinary voice, mediocre song and basic musicianship but sounds wonderful! May your shower ring with joy, but spare me the video!

Enjoyed that. Great fun.

Helen said...

Oh, I'll bet you can sing outside the shower ... let's try a duet sometime?

I sing in the shower and the car only...to protect every one else's ears :)

Stafford and Helen-
actually I do sing all over the house when doing cleaning and cooking- accompanying my favorite musicians like George, John,Paul, Elton, Edith, Joan, Israel, and others. and if Russell isn't home it's turned up really loud and I do a few high kicks while dusting...such a sight!! I only included the video because Charlotte was in the photo!!!
Cheers tra lalala

Leovi said...

Definitely. Well, I also sing while driving the car.

izzy said...

I sing in church now and in my truck-
but never in the shower! :)

messymimi said...

Kathe, i promise never to sing where you have to hear me, shower or otherwise. Instead, i'll stick to listening. ;)

I think you probably have more power than Charlotte - the difference probably is that your parents weren't well known celebrities! Nice write

Berowne said...

Lithe and lively...

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I can sing if anyone doesn't mind their eardrums being damaged a bit :)

Singing anywhere at all is a release. It makes one feel good! Nicely Kathe!

Have you heard Sandra Boynton's take on shower singing? It's an art form in itself!
