What songs do you sing?

I love to sing and sing a lot. I sing at home all the time but usually when my husbands goes to work or in the forest while walking the dogs since the acoustics are so nice. My favourite songs are ballads and I also love singing Christmas songs. Of course I’ve made a small list of songs


Christmas carols

Mary do you know
Silent night
Oh holy night
The Christmas song
Have yourself a Merry little Christmas
It’s the most wonderful time of the year
Last Christmas
All I want for Christmas is you
Oh little town of Bethlehem
Believe
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Mistletoe
Angels we have heard on high

Ballads I like to sing

Somewhere over the rainbow
Hallelujah
Killing me softly
Creep
Make you feel my love
I will always love you
Amazing Grace
Sunshine on my shoulder
If I could save time in a bottle
Careless whisper
Kiss from a rose
Purple rain
The rain song
Against all odds
I have nothing
Stairway to heaven
Comfortably numb
Desperado
I can’t tell you why
Free bird
Wild horses
Imagine
Carpet crawlers

I used to sing mindlessly really, all the time and knew so many song lyrics, right back to "I'm forever blowing bubbles" and "Silver threads among the gold". My DH loved it thought I had a great voice, our son on the other hand hated it. Then COPD stole my voice and I can't bear hearing my own voice any more, but there is always a song running through my mind.
 
* “Anybody Going to San Antone” by Charlie Pride
* “Ain’t No Way” by Aretha Franklin
* “Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind” by Lovin’ Spoonful
* “California Dreaming” by Mamma’s and Papas
* “Volare” by Domenico Modugno
* “Sukiyaki” by Sakamoto Kyu [the whole song (!) even though I’m only mimicking]
… and more.
 
I remember mostly all the lyrics of any song I've ever liked from childhood till now. I sing what comes to mind. I have a huge repertoire. Used to make a lot of trips by car and would sing the entire score from some Broadway hit. JCSuperstar and West Side Story among my favorites. I do the girl groups, Ronettes, Shirelles, Crystals, you name it. Any and all Beatles.
Oh yeah! the Ronettes, the Shirelles, Crystals, for sure ...... and Mary Wells and Dion Warwick and Martha and the Vandellas and The Cookies also. I had a crush on all of them when I was young. And most Beatles songs too, particularly the early tunes like "Love Me Do" and "PS. I love you" and "Do You Want To Know a Secret". Yep, you guessed it, I'm a romantic. I always have been and I still am today.
 
I sing to my parakeet--I made up a song called "Pretty Jasmine" and also the "Good Morning Jasmine" song and the "Good Night Jasmine" song. Let's not forget, too, "You are My Sunshine" song for Jasmine, too.

I used to sing to U2 on my stereo but haven't played that recently. Sometimes I will break out singing when something I'm playing sounds real good to me.
My favourite U2 song is "Where the streets are all named Jasmine" (The official version).

Keesha, I saw in your list of Christmas songs that you like Oh Holy Night. Have you ever heard it sung by the Swedish opera singer Jussi Björling?

I like to sing and I often do. No particular song really but usually I sing along with whatever I happen to find myself listening to at the time. I always invite people, if any are around when I decide to sing, to sing along with me, if they know the words. But I also encourage them to make up their own words if they don't know the ones for the song. Here's one that I especially enjoy singing -

I think I know at least one chorus from about every song I've ever heard! I play simple guitar and loved folk music back in the day. My voice sounds akin to a sick frog, I have multiple playlists on my echo dot and pantomine the songs with vigor. I think I could go on TicToc!! Nah, but I love to sing. Rock, well, about everything but opera and jazz. What fun. No one listens but the dog.

Whenever I'm alone I put on youtube and sing out loud to many songs especially by Elvis,Johnny Mathis,Nat King Cole.Dion etc. It's funny because just this morning I thought my husband had gone to the store and I had youtube on and was singing "A Million to one" then hubby walked in the room and I shut up
