Singing while driving

I have this habit of singing along to every single word of every single song I'm listening to while driving. As long as I know the lyrics and in some cases, even if I don't, I love singing along at the top of my voice! Of course, this changes when somebody else is in the car with me. It becomes more of a 'sing every third line' or 'sing a particularly fav stretch in the song' kinda thing. Do you guys do the same thing?

Why I'm asking is.. I've noticed that most of my friends dont sing along much while listening to music... just the odd word/phrase here and there. They talk more. And I automatically assume that music perhaps just does not play a big role in their lives and that it just fills up the background. I could never be like that and the majority of you guys probably can't either. But maybe that's not the case. Maybe they're just shy. Who knows! But I still couldn't help wondering.

dude, i love to sing at the top of my lungs in the car -- it's so much fun. even better with the windows down if you're feelin sexy. i know the guys in my band sing along in the car (at least my bass player does), but not too many of my friends do. i guess it is a music thing

OK, obviously I don't drive, but whenever I'm in the car it's impossible for me not to sing. Most of the time I don't even care who's with me (well I might sing a tad softer depending on who's in the car)

Except when I'm really tired and need to stay awake I don't sing along in the car. I much prefer to hear the voice of the singer.

Always, I don't care who's with me and I prefer they don't talk. Really I shouldn't ever sing. Never

I sing all the time in the car

I don't know how to hold a conversation with music I enjoy playing in the background. I always end up singing along and ending the conversation

I turn up the car stereo LOUD. You can even ask my girlfriend. Sometimes, when I get out of my car at her house, and we get back in, we both get BLASTED by the stereo b/c I forgot to turn it down before getting out of the car.

And yes, people laugh at me for going all out too...especially when I play the drums on my steering wheel.

I sing in the car. I sing in my office too. I shouldn't ever sing either. I have to stop myself from singing at the gym.

I am totally tone deaf. I really wish I could sing though.

I can't keep from singing in the car, either... the other night I was listening to "Night and Day" with the window down and really belting it out. While stopped at a red light, someone was walking down the road right past my window as I was singing ("such a hungry yearning buuuuurning insiiide of me!") and he started cracking up. It was a little embarassing but I got over it!
