What do they say? Music is the international language. I don’t have any particular music genre though – I love classical through to even the most annoying Jazz music. Ok, I’m not in love with all Jazz, just 0.01% of what was ever recorded. Most of it I just want to reach out for paracetamol the minute it starts playing. I mean, one instrument playing the notes from left to right, one playing from right to left, and another seems like it is being played by someone with Parkinson’s! Although these musicians are definitely more talented that I am. My cello playing is still sounded like a nightmare’s nightmare!
That is why I love singing karaoke, and many Asian’s really love it too. Any party, big or small, will always have karaoke.
When I used to live in Kuala Lumpur, even at lunch time we would go to the karaoke box located in the food court area – Just crazy! It doesn’t matter if we have a singing voice or are tone deaf – it’s just nice to be able to belt something out – even if off key! I’m sure Simon Cowell and the rest of the X-Factor judges would press their buzzers very quickly!
Despite my terrible pronunciation, English songs are still the number one language I go to. My friend Liz recorded me singing “Like A Virgin” whilst we were at Women’s Cricket Week. Obviously, by the time I sing, it becomes “Like A Wirgin”!
One time I even try rapping Eminem and Jay Z songs, but I sounded like a squirrel with Tourette’s syndrome! That’s the end of my rapping career!
I even attempted Tibetan throat singing. I didn’t even come close to getting better at it except for a sore throat, but I sure can download it to my phone playlist. I do this for my darling children. One fine day I will take them for a nice drive in my car and blast it out loudly and tell them this is for all the farting that they did in the car!
Revenge is best served cold!
