Have to sing along with the radio?***

Do they all think that they sound as good as the professional that is getting paid to perform?  Do they all think that if they screech out some nasally inflected wail that they'll sound just like Mariah Carey?  Do they think the other passengers in the vehicle or in the room have no desire to actually listen to the CD but instead would rather listen to them inflict some type of audio punishment on the dogs in the neighborhood?

I normally dont sing while driving.  In commute traffic I'll listen to Slipknot of something like that the cussing and music kinda goes together.

When I sing while driving, I know I sound just like Johnny Cash.

No, you don't.  You sound like somebody is stepping on a frog.

Stop it.

I LOVE it when my wife sings along to the radio. She doesnt do it too often but when she does it means she happy , so when she happy there a good chance I am happy too.

I LIKE singing and driving, but it depends on what they're singing. It's the 99999999 other quirks women have that make me want to bang my head against a wall. ARFCOM needs to hire a professional female relationship counselor. Between the single guys and the divorcees and the 'my wife cheated too' threads, I think it would be a great way for the Avilas to attract business.

P.S. Sgtar15, if you read this, I don't mean to discount your relationship advice.

Me:  Who sings this song?

Her:  I think it's <insert musician here>

Me:  That's right...let's keep it that way.

It drives me crazy.

No, you're not.

If your name isn't on the label, then you suck and should be quiet.

When you go to the movies, do you speak along with the character's dialogue?

Hey, I resemble that remark! I'll sing along with the radio on some songs, but I know DAMN well that you don't want to
listen to me sing otherwise!

Mrs. Tanker likes to think that she's a good singer. I play along with it to keep the peace (and the pie)

There is a cure for this.  Conjure up the worst fart you can and let that bad boy loose in the car.  

My brother was sitting at a light next to woman singing away.  He launched a wallpaper peeling WMD in her direction that was so bad, she rolled up her windows and closed her sunroof.  It was too late by that time...

The Neutral Observer's wife likes to sing.  It makes her feel happy or something.  Who knows.

Anyway, she is good at it.

This thread reminds me of the commercial with the car full of guys and the one fellow is sitting there belting out "Feel Like a Woman" by Shania Twain!

Singing is bad enough but let me warn you guys in advance.

If you ever ride in my vehicle and whistle with the radio even one fookin note,


I dont care where we are, what the weather is like, I dont care if there's a woman in the back seat giving birth, I dont care if we are in the baddest part of town and its 1 AM, I dont care if we are evacuating from a cloud of poison gas and its 1/2 a mile behind us!

I dont care if its all of the above.


I'll sing to you at Gunstock.

Ok if I go to gunstock, will there be someone there who can fill each role of The Highwaymen so we can have a group sing-along of 'the highwaymen'?

I was a sailor.....

For the love of mankind, get yourself a sound proof booth, get yourself a mountain top,...hell, get yourself a muzzle - just don't subject me to your wailing.

If the person can carry a tune and isn't freaking tone-deaf or worse, has no sense of timing...I don't mind it.

A friend of mine has no sense of timing NOR any tone. She sings along to the radio like she's reading the news.

Drives me up the fucking wall.

I don't sing along with music unless I am alone - well, occasionally I will sing along as punishment for my kids .

BTW, women do these things for the same reason men do stupid/irratating things - it's just the way they are.

So I'll hang around as long as you will let me...

Aw man, someone hand me a beer.  And whatever you do, don't sleep on that bed.

Why and Women are two words that don't belong in the same sentence because we won't know the answer to it.

Some of them are actually good...

Then again, the person I'm thinking of actually had voice lessons & aspirations to be a professional... So that may make a difference...
