"OMG!" you say? Yep, the last time I sang was in high school chorus and that was in 1958. I didn't even go out for chorus in my senior year, that's just how bad I was.
|Yes, that's me in the back, the tall head fifth from the left in DHS Mixed Chorus - 1958|
Of course I never sang solo. Never was asked to. Well, of course I couldn't much carry a tune. Mr. Ifert (yes, that was his name and we did make the appropriate or inappropriate jokes about his name), our choir master and music director was very kind to this awkward and self conscious 16 year old. Heck, I wanted so bad to just belong. I have to say I did enjoy the camaraderie but I was too self conscious to enjoy singing. My, my, how times have changed. Here I've recorded a video of me singing acapella! Who do I think I am anyway? Well, glad you asked. I'm having the time of my life and doing just about anything I want to without fear of social rejection. Been there, done that fans. Just another great thing about getting old.....I really don't care what people think. Oh of course I want everyone to think well of me but I learned a long time ago that I could be the most perfect person in the world and yet there will still be a certain segment of folks who aren't interested at best and at worst just plain dislike me. Hey, so what?
So anyway folks, listening to a fellow blogger singing inspired me to try my vocal chops out again.
Downingtown High School Boy's Chorus 1958 - that is me in the back row fifth from the left with the Gay Tilt to my head. What was with that? Do you know I still do that? The Gay Tilt.
By the way, I've posted my singing video to You Tube. You think
