Someday You'll Be Able to Say You Knew Me When

I sing. I can't say I'm a singer because that would imply that I have some sort of venue for performing and at least a handful of people I can call an audience. Nope I don't do anything with my talent but enjoy it and occasionally when I'm very drunk and someone begs I'll sing for other people. It's not that I mind performing, actually I love it. I just have a hard time believing anyone actually wants to hear me. I always think they are just asking to be nice and then I get embarrassed. I used to want to have a carer in musical theatre but I'm my own worst critic and convinced myself that I'd never be good enough for that. It may or may not be true I'm not a good judge. Anyway the one person I don't mind singing to who I can tell LOVES it is Fiona. So when I was home with her last week I made myself a play list for my ipod that I could sing along with while we were playing. And today I share it with you because who doesn't enjoy belting it out if only in the privacy of your shower. Check out the ones you haven't heard & let me know your recommendations. I'm always looking for new material.
