I Wish I Could Sing

    I auditioned for the school musical this morning with my friend. Next to her I sounded terrible. They didn't let us finish our piece, but they did laugh, which is probably a good sign. But my singing completely let me down. I felt horrible because I'd practised the damn song all...

    Or Have At Least Some Kind Of Musical Talent...

    I wish I could be at least some kind of musician, actually. Music really does seem to be the most 'pure' and direct of the arts, you really can use it to express anything. So, yeah... I really wish I could sing, dance, write a song, play an instrument... singing would be one of...

    Ahhh, Yes

    i would love to have a big, beautiful, powerhouse voice. you know, the kind that gives people goosebumps. but i certainly have nothing of those likes. it's really a natural gift that some people are born with, lucky them.

    I'm Just Dreadful At It

    When I sing sometimes, I think that its pretty good. No matter what everyone else says and comments about it. And other times, I'd be trying to go really high and way out of my range, and it would be so crappy and I immediately stop, knowing that it totally sucked. I watch the...

    I Absolutely Love To Sing

    There's something about singing that makes it so great. For me, singing is the easiest of any of the instruments I know how to play. I love going to my piano and just singing some songs. Stretching my voice, then making it fly. Soaring with the high notes, and dipping with the...

    It's Times Like This When I Wish I Could Sing...

    Earlier today, I was listening to my iPod, when I came to Glee's version of Faithfully. Lea Michele's voice is so.... perfect, and i usually don't care that I can't sing at all, but when I hear her voice I really wish I could sing.

    Tone Deaf

    I love to sing in the car, alone, but you wouldn't catch me singing anything in public.  Ever.  I don't even sing happy birthday.  I have no illusions about how terrible my voice is and as much as I wish I could sing, it's something that I will never be able to...

    until I heard myself over a recording, it is one of the worst sounds I'll ever hear. I stopped playing guitar and piano for a while because songwriting was my only motivation to actually play the instruments. I played a little bit of guitar again yesterday and tried singing some...

    When There's No One About...

    I really love singing, even though I can't do it to save my life.   I know I've got a horrible singing voice, so I have mercy on people that live in my  house and only sing away when people aren't in.   That's fair, isn't it?  Though, I think that...

    I Play The Guitar

    It would be the icing on the cake if I could actually sing as well. I know a high percentage of people can do that already, but I want to be part of that high percentage who can. Not part of the high percentage who can't :).

    Trying To Learn To Sing

    I have wanted to sing my whole life, but was told as a kid that I sounded awful, so I never would sing.  I started trying to sing in front of other people about a year and a half ago which was a very difficult thing for me to do.  I have to say that I...

    More Like "I Wish I Could Sing Well"

    I love to belt out a tune whenever I can.  I am loud and proud about it, doing it with gusto! Sadly, the one adjective I can't use is "talented." I still love it, though!

    I can sing a bit, I confess, but I can no longer hit the same notes as I used to on my old songs. I'm having to change my range and it's not sounding great. I don't want to get to the stage that I sing like Bob Dylan does nowadays, one groan for every melody. I was considering...

    I can play musical instruments

    but I have always wanted to be able to sing good. I believe everyone can sing but some are better than others. I would like to be able to sing a love song to my boyfriend and do it with a good voice and not make him cringe.

    I used to be able to sing very well. But I lost my voice after 8th grade. I used to be one of the best singers in my class. I went to a singing competition and the cutoff point for the solo was 20- I had a score of 21. I love to sing even now, but it hurts my throat and I sound...

    Technically everyone can sing.

    But people like me can't sing well... There are a few songs I sound decent. Mostly slow songs. Others I love but I sound HORRIBLE. I wish I was musically gifted..
