This one is for the Shower Singers. You may have never sung in a choir or in front of anyone, but you know who you are – got a song in your head? Love the way the walls of your shower/bathroom echo and make your voice sound a little sweeter than it actually is? The shower is a sanctum for singing, even if you don’t have much of a voice.
What are your songs? Nope, you don’t need to be a writer or have your own made-up songs. I’m talking about the songs you pull out of your water-logged repertoire and reserve just for those long showers so you can sing at the top of your lungs.
As a new mom, I’ve taken my shower songs and use them as lullabies. Rockabye Baby just doesn’t do it for me (mostly because I can only get to the second verse…), so I’ve used some of my favorite shower tunes instead. I must say, there is nothing more rewarding than holding a fussy infant that wants to sleep (and yet refuses to), and they start to melt away into sleep after a few lines of a familiar song. I thought I’d share them with you:
So all you Shower Singers out there, lend me your songs! What can I add to the queue?
