Who can sing?

well this should be a good topic what with this being a board sort of related to music

but who can sing?

and if so, who do they sound like?

im not the world's best singer but im more game than adam clayton

my vocal range is definitely rock though, i did a pretty good rendition of the Rolling Stones Wild Horses, mick jagger is quite easy to sing along to for me actually, i got the whole crowd rocking with You Cant Always Get What You Want. ive definitely increased in power since i just started to learn the rhythm and beats of songs, its too hard to sing like bono, but im thinking you need to be born with that certain special voice to sound like him

also is it any surprise MOST guys want to sing like Robbie Williams/ Ronan Keating? hmm i cant sing that yank tone that most judges on american idol/ popstars seem to like

oh and for the gals im pretty tired of girls that can do nothing but sing Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You, or I Will Survive, real singing is something like Goldfrapp - Horse Tears or for someone who doesnt have the power Alanis' Ironic

I've done lots of singing...I did a ton while I was in high school, but I haven't done as much since I moved. I actually had an audition to sing in a rock band this past Friday, but I decided not to go...I wasn't really feeling the music all that much, and I think they were going to be just a cover band. I'd like to use a little more creativity. Singing is one of my favorite things.

BC sang on my cell phone


i don't sing very well, but i was in school choir in gradeschool, and in a german children's choir before that. i haven't done much singing since then, except to myself in the car or shower


although i did get to sing one verse of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" during elevation's performance in vegas...i was told i didn't sound too bad

I sang in my high school choir, then I got away from singing for a long time. Then a few years back I started singing in church choir. I'm a soprano, but my range isn't nearly as high as some. G above middle C is about as high as I can sing comfortably.

I've never sung solos with any choir I've been in. I don't have a lot of power to my voice and all those other things you need to be a great singer. I have no illusions about my ability. I've just loved singing ever since I was a kid.

I wish I could sing. I have been forbidden, unless it's in the car and we're all singing together.

i like to sing. by myself. when nobody's listening. i sing off key cuz of my hearing loss. if i REALLY wanted to, i could probably sing a decent tune if i took voice lessons.

music does run in my family. father used to sing, play lead guitar, in a rock band, etc.

my mother sang at her church. before that she used to sing alot to herself or when with the band. back in the days she sounded very much like ann wilson from heart.

Yeah I sing, not with any bands at the mo though.
I record my own stuff on the comp...someone told me I sounded a bit like Joan Osborne which, if true, then I'll take as a huge compliment
I need a new mic *sigh* the other one broke a while ago

I can sing, my vocal range is very close to Anthony Kiediss vocal range. I can sing every Red Hot song very well - what I cant do with U2 songs, or Tori Amos songs, or songs of artists which vocal range goes hiiiiiiiiiigh

I like to sing, it makes me feel good usually.
Not too sure how anyone else may feel. My voice has definitely weakened since I turned 40 so enjoy it while you can musiclovers...it leaves you baby if you don't care for it.
I love the human voice, it's wondrous
