Thread Name: Songs You Sing In the Shower
Subject: RE: BS: Songs You Sing In the Shower
I love to sing in the shower! And I have a recent funny story about it:

I live in a duplex. The sides of the duplex share a long wall down the center of the house and so our hallways and bathrooms are back to back. Elsewhere in the house I can't really hear what is going on in the next abode, but in the bathroom I can hear EVERYTHING (which can get downright disgusting at times, but that is another thread altogether!), as if we are in the same room (which, come on, we practically are).

A family lives next to me and has two older teenage daughters. They have caught me a few times to tell me that they have heard me playing guitar and singing in the backyard and that they really enjoy listening, that they sing to, blah blah blah.

ANYWAY! The other day I was getting ready to take a shower and someone on the other side of the duplex was already showering away. She was singing, at the top of her lungs, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". I listened for a minute - getting some strange clandestine and surreptitious pleasure from listening (aside: you know how people sing with their soul if they think no one is listening and it is just *beautiful* because it is so truly *them* even if the sound isn't necessarily good? That's what this was like - I was spying on her soul). So I listened for a moment and then felt sorta guilty (spying on the soul thing) and felt like I should give something back so I started my shower and began to sing with her: Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high... When I began, she stopped for a minute (embarrassed, perhaps?) but then, with great gusto, she began again and we sang that song over and over. At a few points we messed up the words or got off key and laughed but just kept on singing. It was really fun! A musical, sudsy twosome (hey guys [and girls] think of the possiblities!). I still don't know which of the two girls it was...and I don't really want to know.

Anyone with similiar experiences?
