I sometimes do it but its only when no one's looking. But I was gonna try tomorrow night at the after party where I was either gonna do a duet with the girlfriend (bring me to life) or I would try alone and do smells like teen spirit (yes I know the words)

I was just wondering who does sing along to songs.

I sing all the time when I'm alone (in the car for example) and think I'm pretty good. But I was scared to try it in front of other people in case no one agreed with me.
I finally tried karaoke one night (having a few drinks in me helped) and it went over great. I even got complimented by the karaoke "regulars". Haven't tried it since, but now I want to again.

When I do sing, I try to imitate the voice of the actual vocalist of the song as best as I can. Am I the only one that does that?

I like to sing when I'm alone, but Karaoke was awesome. You gotta have a couple drinks in ya to do it.

And yes, I do try and imitate the artist's voice when I sing.

I play the acoustic guitar and sing both. I sing covers and write my own songs.

I'm a pretty good singer.

I had performed live in front a huge audience before and it's a lot of fun.

I have done "Come Together" by The Beatles a few times at Karaoke. People told me it was really good. It is hard to hear yourself sing. I also got on stage with a band one time and sang Bob Seger's "Heavy Music" and the band complimented me. I would love to try it again.

I sing along with tons of my music...

Also...when I was in Japan, I was taken to a karaoke bar by a bunch of locals and got pretty drunk and sang 'Come Together' by the Beatles, Light My Fire and Break on Through by the Doors and Blaze of Glory by Bon Jovi...

...From what I can remember I did a great job...lol.

I sing along all the time. The hardest thing for me is that my vocal range is very limited, so I have to pick artists with similar ranges if I really want to wail when people are around.

I'd like to try karaoke, but I really suspect that I'm not that good.

I used to have a girlfriend with perfect pitch and amazing range, and it was an absolute joy to hear her sing along to songs on the radio.

Boris - if you couldn't hear yourself singing when you did karaoke, the KJ either did one of two things wrong:

1. No vocal speakers set-up (usually at the base of the microphone, or behind the singer, or both)

2. The music was too loud

Yeah, I heard my voice loud and clear when I tried karaoke. Of course, your voice always sounds different when you hear it from a speaker instead of inside your head, so to speak, which is how you usually hear it. So at first, I thought, "wow, is that me singing? Cool, I don't suck!"

Ummm no. I've heard your songs on mp3.com or whatever and let me say this: I'd rather listen to Avril Lavigne doing that System of a Down cover. Sorry to wake you up from your dream but you're not good. Sorry.

I sang "Great Balls Of Fire" at Karaoke once, got quite a round of applause. My favorite part was:

"Kiss me baby! WOOOOOOOO! Feeeeels Good!"



I also sang "Sweet Home Alabama" one night at a bar. There was a guy with a guitar playing all night, and he started taking requests. He really wanted to play it for a girl there, but he didn't know the words. Bust to the rescue. I think she went home with him.
