My Online Singing Debut

Okay, boys and girls. Here it is. Please be gentle. I only tried approximately 25 songs before I found one I could remotely handle. You should have heard the others. Oh...my...God. Okay, I'll post them later. But for now, off we go...

Beautiful! Oh, Laurie, I am in love!

You did a great job with that one. Makes me think the other 24 probably weren't all that bad. We all tend to be overly critical of our own work. Brava! Keep 'em coming.

Simon compares you to a singing waiter in a Peruvian restaurant, Randy says, "You did your thing, dawg," and Paula's snockered by her Nyquil margarita, but she says something about, "feeling the colors of your emotions." So, hey -- you're through to Hollywood! Good job!

Laurie said...

Larry - You are far too kind but you do have my permission to be in love with me.

Pokerboss - I'm going to keep working on 99 Red Balloons.

Peggy - Hahahahah! Perfect!! You sound just like them. :)

Jen T. (that's me) said...

Hahaha! Great Job! :)

I might give it a shot this weekend. After a few cocktails...

Laurie said...

Jen - Hee heeeee!! These people are being so sweet but it was SO bad. Hahaha! You really should have heard the rest. But it was so much fun. I wasn't even drunk and it was fun.

Leslie said...

Laurie, that was great! It's so much fun.

Dave and I tried to record a duet, but our microphone isn't great and it just didn't grab both of us - we sounded very, very, very far away. When we get a new microphone, we'll post one. Now, I'm trying to get Dave to do one on his own. He acts like he can't, but he can really sing.

Where is Simon Cowell when we need him?

I think you did just fine. I would send you on to Hollywood :) I can never try this because I know what my recorded voice sounds like - Minnie Mouse on Helium :)

Laurie said...

Leslie - I can't wait to hear a duet!

Old Horsetail - No kidding!

Cindy - No! You must do it. I bet you could do Cyndi Lauper.

Susan in St. Paul said...

Cool! gret job Laurie!

If I can find get it to work with my mac, I will give it a shot.

TexasGal said...

Darn it! I couldn't get it to play. I'm sure it was wonderful!

Laurie said...

Susan - You have to promise to e-mail me a link to whatever you sing. Promise!

TexasGal - I'm sure it wasn't but you would have gotten a kick out of it, I'm sure. :)
