Locked by panic (116436) on 2012-12-19 21:45:33 Thanks to everyone who participated.

It ain't rocket science, is it? I'll award "Best Artist" and "Funniest Performance". But it's not about awards, is it? It's about singing and/or making a fool of yourself in public. Feel free to enter as many times as you like. Contest closes Dec 15. Winners will receive karma and tons of recognition.

Here's a link to last year's contest. dance.net . . . While you're there, give Oz_Helen some karma for running this contest for the past 5 years. She deserves it!

So just to get us started, here are a few links of me singing like an angel. Don't expect to sing as good as me because you can't. Just have fun, and enjoy yourself.

Come on, people! Don't be a douche. Sing!

Thanks for organizing this, Chris. I had trouble with the link to last year's contest. This one worked better for me: www.dance.net . . .

Right, this is awful. You've been warned.


Also, people get your entries in because it will be a disgrace if I win out of default. Don't let me win, a lot of you have legit talent, we want to hear it. And besides, with the bar set so low, *anyone* stands a better chance than I do. Get your songs recorded and posted!

Das Kufsteiner Lied

I am adding my old man's voice to the contest in the hopes that more people will enter.

Karl Ganzer wrote this song about his adopted home town on the back side of the alps, and I can't escape the conclusion that he liked the place.

Subtitles have been added, but regretfully I could not find a translation for:
"guates Weinderl" or “s möcht”.

www.youtube.com . . .

Here are the words if you care to sing along:
Spoiler: Show
1. Kennst du die Perle,
Die Perle Tirols.
Das Städtchen Kufstein,
Das kennst du wohl,
Umrahmt von Bergen,
So friedlich und still,
Ja, das ist Kufstein
Dort am grünen Inn.
Ja, das ist Kufstein am grünen Inn.

(Exuberance.)

2. Es gibt so vieles,
Bei uns in Tirol:
Ein guates Weinderl
Aus Südtirol
Und mancher wünscht sich,
's möcht' immer so sein,
Bei einem Mäderl
Und an Gläserl Wein.
Bei einem Mäderl an Gläserl Wein.

(Exuberance.)

3. Und ist der Urlaub
Dann wieder aus.
Da nimmt man Abschied
Und fährt nach Haus.
Man denkt an Kufstein,
Man denkt an Tirol,
(sung twice) Mein liebes Städtchen
Leb'wohl, leb' wohl.

(Exuberance.)


In any event, feel free to add to the exuberance; there is no such thing as too much.

Edited by smileywoman (141214) on 2012-11-19 20:27:24 added a third song with Mr. Smileywoman's encouragement. :)
First try so far -

1. I'm LAUGHING at myself really hard as I listen to me making a FOOL out of myself with THIS one:

2. My version of Alice Cooper's "Only Women Bleed." www.singsnap.com . . .


3. Okay - went back and added this 'cause Mr. Smileywoman really thinks I sing it well. :D www.singsnap.com . . .

NOTE:
-My first entry has a surprise "partner" joining me for a 'dance' at the end.
-My second entry is because I grew up LOVING Alice Cooper

Yeeesssss this came at the perfect time! I'm SICK AS A DOG, can't breathe through my nose, and can't hit any notes above "really low." The cool thing? I can magically go really REALLY low when sick. Therefore, presenting nasaly, snotty, sicky DG singing Hallelujah!

Since I'm waiting for my baby to arrive, I thought I'd do this. Excuse the boxes in the room - that's my unbuilt wardrobe! I only did one take.

Commenting to say dibs on "If I Die Young" by The Band Perry. I'm going to try to borrow someone else's microphone to get halfway decent audio so no video YET.

Smileywoman throwing another one in the pot, since I got a new microphone and wanted to try it out.

Edited by dancerchick012 (91320) on 2012-11-26 19:03:56 i'm crazy apparently.
Edited by dancerchick012 (91320) on 2012-11-26 20:23:57 ah, dropbox, my nemesis..
Ahhhh okay okay okay I've never entered before although I've always wanted to. Then last week my cold took a momentary pause and I could breathe so I figured it was a sign...
Soo here we go. This is "If I Were a Bell" from Guys & Dolls. And any "wrong" sounding notes are aaaabsolutely intentional... :D Or! They're the fault of the cruddy microphone built into my laptop. Mmmmhm. Yep.

This is WAY overmodulated, but whatever. And yes, I used to work as an audio technician. Sue me.

Every year I want to enter this, but then I find a kareoke track and I just sound so horrific that I end up cyber-burning any evidence that I ever tried.

This year, I think I'm going to attack a Joni Mitchell song.
Karaoke - one week left!

Come on! What if Bob Dylan had used inability to sing as an excuse?
