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 change.  So I keep it in the car.

Thanks glow. My mom, who is also tone deaf and worse off than me, shares your opinion. She would always insist on singing at the top of her lungs in church. It was so embarrassing for us as kids, but she would say, "the bible doesn't say to sing, it says to make a joyful noise unto the lord." She was joyful alright.

At least you have a place to let go and belt it out...singing is one of the most therapeutic things one can do, in my opinion...keep singing, and know that most people don't like their voices...it's the enthusiasm that you sing with that makes it cool. :)
