I got to sing back up vocals for the Karate Kids last weekend. Have I preached just how great that band has been for my ego? I sang baritone on one song and a nasal jean stapleton redition on another, and then two others straight forward. I think it was the first time I realized why people enjoy singing so much. A big release. I wasn't afraid to be unattractive - or to look silly / sound silly because everyone in the band was so encouraging. So sweet.
I've always thought the only song I could sing well is "Part of Your World". Or at least, until my terrifying experience in the NYU musical theater program where I perfected "I'm Just a Girl Who Can't Say No" from Oklahoma. I'd say "Part of Your World" circulates through my head at least once a day. I'll also admit that I really relate to Ariel. Especially in that song. It's embarrassing, but true.
This is the other that gets me every time. Ugh. I know. I can't help it. I don't want to be that way honestly. My fourth-wave feminist self hates me. But jeez- Wipe away the tears...
I can't help it - I get a good chuckle outta this one:
