Sweeeet. I've picked my songs (King of Anything if I can find a track for it, Telephone by Gaga, and something else that I'm blanking on but it was in the soprano range because Sarah Barielles is a bit low for me). Haven't done them yet, I'm holding out to see if Current Boytoy will manage to get our fancypants microphones installed. I'm a first soprano and the laptop webcam hates high notes.

Edited by Sumayah (204191) on 2010-10-17 01:25:20 So fun fact, when linking an image, if the link pathway has cursing in it, ddn won't let it through... and then the back button just resubmits your broken previous edit and then, well, it's a mess...
It deeply saddens me to see this thread slip off to the bottom(ish) of the second general page, which means it's time for punishment. No, it's not 70 lashes with a cat o' nine tail, no it's far, far worse. Yet another submission by me.

www.youtube.com . . .

Please, help stop this vocal travesty. Only you can prevent more awkward and undeniably poor singing. How you ask? By entering in your submission. Do it now. You have no choice in the matter; unless you want to hear more godawful renditions of what used to be songs you liked, go therefore and post! Being busy is no excuse, insomnia comes to us each and all at some point. Come on folks, Nov 12th will be here before you know it.

YOU'LL SUBMIT AND YOU'LL LIKE IT!!!! RESPECT MAH AUTHORITAH! SUBMIT!!!!!!!

Okay, sooo... here is entry #1. I'm not 100% thrilled with it - my vowel shaping gets very . . . interesting in parts. (I'm scared of singing loudly when other people are in the house!) But if I don't post it I'll do a million takes in my perfectionist fashion and never post anything. And maybe I'll do it over again. Is that kosher? Whatever, who cares.

The Water is Wide, a traditional English folk tune.


or here.

claireyfaerie85 - Loved your "Hey!" You can't go wrong with Madonna karaoke!

Sumayah - I had never heard that song before. Gee it's wordy! Kudos for getting through those rapid-fire lyrics.

Nicola_x - I had no idea how sweet your voice was! What a surprise! Great song, too.

Heart - That's such a pretty song. I gave it to one of my students to do for a singing exam earlier this year. Thanks for singing it!

I'm working on this. I've recorded a few things but I'm not happy with it at all. I might go ahead and post the last one I did.

Wow this thread appears to be off to a great start! I can't decide what to do!! I have one song that is my favoritest ever but there are a few too many dirty words for DDN ;)
On the bright side, a few of you now have a new subscriber on your youtube account. :D

^ I've been working on the high pitched hey for a while now.

Might have a dodgy rendition of Danny Boy coming up in the next few days. My voice is somewhat suited to ballads more than pop.

I'm really only permitted to sing in the shower, and I really don't think that sort of thing is appropriate for DDN.

I somehow missed this in past years, though, and I feel like I should at least offer something in return for the entertainment I got going through all the old entries. Maybe if I'm home from work early tomorrow, before my boy or the neighbours are home...

My entry...

Fever

I have another video entry as well, but my voice was kinda raspy, and I hit my vimeo upload limit for the week, so it'll have to wait. :P

I'm actually working on a recording (have been since the summer...keep forgetting to finish it), and if I finish that before this ends, I will let y'all hear.

I also recorded mine!

I'm just trying to find a computer that can read my memory card. It's one of those SD card that no computer can read. But I should be able to upload it by next week.

My song is Ding Ding dong by Gunther and the Sunshine Girls. Very serious.

I've never done karaoke before. I always sing with someone else...and am not used to singing by myself. I'm used to singing in a choir where we are supposed to sound British.

I don't like my voice. I really hate my head voice and avoid it like the plague.

But I love to sing. Here's me singing (badly) Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer:

Reel, I stopped by here just for you and woah! That was awesome. Of course you know I love all things you sing and yeah. Nice job :)

Been thinking about entering..but I'm too embarrassed. Everyone else's entries are fun to listen to though!

^ Embarrassed!? LOL, I wouldn't have entered this if I didn't have a special warm and fuzzy place in my heart for Helen. I generally don't sacrifice myself on the alter of public humiliation for just anyone. Trust me, you're guaranteed to sound better than me! Do it!! :D

I shamelessly come back with TWO new entries!

(Still lack the ability to find good tracks for English songs, so I gave up)

Presenting:

A Beautiful Myth: www.youtube.com . . .

Breaking Dawn (Twilight UNrelated): www.youtube.com . . .

-EDIT- I uploaded two new versions after I used Audacity to get rid of the noise. :)

Breaking Dawn: www.youtube.com . . .

A Beautiful Myth: www.youtube.com . . .

I didn't do an intro because I figured everyone would recognize my voice from the first entry I submitted. I'm not too satisfied with my microphone quality on the higher notes, but whatever, I'm not spending money on a good mic. :P

Alright here goes, I'm getting over a cold at the moment and there are a few parts that I don't like, but I'm learning to embrace my flaws. :P

Also, the music volume was really loud at the beginning so I turned it down, and I apologize for the poor sound quality.
