I miss these old songs... Reminds me of when my sisters and I used to sing while doing the dishes. ^_^

That's a bit quiet and hard to hear, but you have very nice tone when I can hear it. [Smile]

JT -- I didn't realize your voice was that high (tenor). I somehow thought you were more of a baritone/bass from what I thought I had heard before of your clips. But that was a great job of Grapevine (I haven't listened to everyone else's yet.)

Nope, I'm pretty solidly in the 'tenor' range. I can sing the baritone range okay, but not with much depth in the lower reaches.

Which song(s) of mine made you think that? Do you remember?

Ok, I recorded one. danny boy. I'm kinda sick, so my voice isn't at its best, but it looked like such fun that I had to try it. Also, is there any way to not have the background noise if I'm just using the mic that's in my computer?

Annie had so much fun recording songs with me yesterday that she stole my microphone. This leaves me with a great deal of equipment envy, eying up the best deals on computer recording equipment and new microphones. I think if she is going to leave me stranded, micless on the side of the internet, the least she could do is actually record a song and release it for us to hear. Am I right?

Talk about ask and you shall receive! Here is Annie's new one. I say she sounds quite good.

Geez AR, you are fast at posting. I suppose this means you liked it [Smile] . Well, I messed up a few entrances, but I like this one better than the first one I performed. Enjoy!

Would God I Were The Tender Apple Blossom, which, again, got quieter than it was when I reviewed it for some reason. Sorry. If you can't hear the words, I'll re-record and try to get it louder.

KQ, I listened to "In the Sweet By and Bye" - well, the first part of it (very slow internet)

You have a very sweet voice, and it seemed very well suited to the song.

Thank you! I actually think I did better on the last one I linked. (But apparently someone didn't like the fact that I "changed the words" to "Danny Boy", even though these are older words, or maybe they just didn't like my voice, 'cause they rated me 3 stars and left no comment. Oh, well! I like it!)

I keep trying to do "The Saga Begins" but I can't get all the way through it before I bust up laughing.

kq, maybe it's that your voice is kinda quiet, so it's hard to hear your changed words. I hope my rating helps balance it out though!

Edit: I added a new recording of Amazing Grace as well.

Do you think I should re-record it, dragon?

*goes off to listen to Amazing Grace*

List updated. I'm linking the first song everyone does so the list doesn't get cluttered, but Singshot lists your other songs directly below that one. Hooray, participation!

Yeah, I'd love to be able to hear what your lyrics are - I'm only familiar with the ones listed on the site.

I'm able to hear them when I turn it up, but then, I know what they are. It was louder when I recorded it, I had mic volume almost all the way up, reviewed it and it was fine, but then I saved it and it went softer. Same thing happened on another song. [Dont Know]

I can't record tonight, I'll try to get to it tomorrow (I'm thinking of trying to make the slideshow better anyway.) In the meantime, these are the lyrics I sang, except for a few words ("slender" instead of "silver", and a "your" for a "you" typo here and there. You may need to scroll down.) They're often listed simply under "Londonderry Air", but I don't use that title because it's politically charged and wasn't used until the 1920's or 30's anyway. I call the song by the words, and the tune by an older name-- "Air from County Derry."

And that's more than you ever wanted or needed to know. [Wink]

(Actually, if you want to know even more, I have an excellent link.)

Okay, I think I fixed the volume. Sound is not quite as good, and I still can't figure out how to keep the images in the order I want when making a slide show, but it's better than it was, I think. Tell me what you think, Dragon. [Smile]

I like it a lot! You have a wonderfully clear voice, it's perfect for this type of music.

Realized if I don't record now I probably never will, strep throat be damned. I've done karaoke once in my entire life so it took me awhile to build up the courage to try. But I felt it would be good for tearing down shyness.

Figures I'd chicken out and just do a falsetto song [Razz]

That's strep throat falsetto?

I'm impressed.

I have recorded a bunch of songs, now. Have a listen, if you dare!

Though in the interest of time and laziness, I will only link to one. You can navigate to the rest on your own, punks.
