Come on peeps, it's time to shatter some ear drums with a bit of tuneless warbling. Why not join the party? I'll kick things off...

I Wanna Be Like You (from the Jungle Book)

PLEASE NOTE: To listen, just click on the little "play" symbol on the linked page.

Now it's your turn...

P.S. If you're a little too shy to have a go yourself then you can always hunt online for other people's strained vocal chords (like this bloke for example).

  • ^ Bahahaha! I may not be Commander Shepard, but this is easily my favorite post on the Citadel.

    It doesn't help that you sound almost exactly like my friend (except British instead of Aussie), but I never thought I'd find a grown-ass man impersonating a chicken and awkwardly rapping to be so damn funny. Bravo!

    I thank you kindly, I'm certainly not afraid of making a complete arse of myself. In fact, all good comedy hinges on doing so. :)

    I've never had a song dedicated to me before! Thanks a bunch, Davies!

    'Twas a pleasure M'Lady. :)

    By the way, where's your operatic song?

    Working on it. I need to practice up a bit first. And then find a time when nobody else is home so that I can record in piece and not have my parents calling me when I'm in the middle.

    Actually, I might skimp a bit on the "opera" portion and just do an art song instead. Those are shorter and I've got a few memorized already. They also sound better without a full piece orchestra in the background. :D

    Well, whatever takes your fancy M'Lady. I'm just looking forward to hearing something.

    Also, come on other peeps... post some more songs as well!

    Okay, everyone except RetroVortex get out immediately (or at least pretend to).

    Internet I am not afraid of.
    Since I am likely never to meet you, even then you will be like-minded.

    But the real people here....
    ....I fear them...
    (More likely I fear ridicule! :O)
