@ Glyn... love all of those songs... but WOWSER... that Keith Whitley tune about brings me to tears, you do it so beautifully! Love it!

@ Scott... That is an awesome version of that song!! You sound super!!! I didn't know Youngstown was your home town... very close to where I am! Matter of fact, at work, my bank is considered the Youngstown Region! Great choice and excellent performance!! smile

Hi Linda, Just saw the challenge so this is for cities.

This is gonna suck a big one in my bravery I know but love the challenge.

I got no webcam or mic, this was done with my borrowed grand daughters "dollar store microphone", literally!

A favorite song of mine, also one I can't sing. Haven't heard it in years and sure need to practice it, and I made some screw ups, besides not bein' able to sing it. I'm no singer in the first place, that's why you don't see acapella's of my lyrics on the boards.

Hey all of you all that don't take on a wordy lyric, yea, they're hard to sing!

So I toast my embarresment. CHEERS! (raises glass)

http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/r/b38c3dc14

did I do that right!

Geneva,

I enjoyed this very much, and this is so much fun, helps me with my singing(for myself, i'm not fool, know i'm no singer), but this does help me see how I should sound. But Geneva I enjoyed this alot, thanks for doing this...

way to go lady...glyn


And I toast to you too as I raise my tea glass...Cheers

And I too see now how hard a wordy lyic is to sing, mine for now will be shorter!!!

Hi glynn,

Nothin wrong with your singin".

But I hear so much more confidence in your vox now than when you started out. that's awesome! Hope I stay brave, and can actually practice with listeners, that's the hard part, and maybe not give up, (I'm a quiter if I don't think I'm goin' anywhere) and get there too.

This took everthing I had too post!

YAY GENEVA!!! Thanks so much for joining us and being brave!! Standing O just for stepping up the plate, er, mic.
I have to listen still to all these wonderful things!
I've, uh, sadly been asleep all day O_o ... uh... w/my thyroid imbalance sometimes this happens...

Keep posting! and I'll get in to hear y'all soon as I can! smile
YAY Scott for joining us too!!
It's OK if it's been posted on the MP3 boards or elsewhere - we just want to kept it to "post it once" in this particular thread. But still -- if you re-mix it or add something different to it can be posted again here! smile

Thank you everyone for making this a fun, and safe place to practice and learn and have a great time!

@Geneva! you sound terrific!!! you are sure right on! and ...those words are not easy, you kept right up! Great tone and country sound you have there too... see... this was so fun to hear someone who might not normally sing here on JPF... I thoroughly enjoyed your performance! :-) Please do keep posting, I really like hearing your voice!!

I think there are many of us who sing better than you think you do!
Thanks so much for your courage! Hear the applause - in your head!!! grin grin grin

@Glyn, YES that was a powerful strong performance of the Whitley song, too. I have heard it a number of times out there on SingSnap and I gotta tell you, you really put some soul and feel into it I don't always hear. I really felt it that time. Great job!

"Make Believe" -- awww this takes me back, and again, you have a way of making the listener FEEL what you are singing, even if we've heard this song before. Thumbs up!!

"Shake Me" - I am not sure I heard this song before, but it's lovely! I really enjoyed the story here... and your voice is so great for storytelling.... awwww!!! what a neat song and performance!!

"Long Long Time" -- again such power and emotion and FEEL in your singing, Glyn! you underestimate yourself... wow... it feels raw and open-hearted and "all in."

@Scott -- I believe I remember when you first posted this cover... I was impressed then and am still impressed now! grin THANK YOU so much for posting it... it's full of feel and emotion too... of course being your hometown... too... I have never been there but I can see it in my mind's eye.

remember all -- on
OPEN MIC WEEKENDS: you can post any song you want!!

@ Linda-- THANKS for the COUPON!!!! YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!! I may just have to use it this weekend... I don't know if I can wait for the next challenge!!

@ Linda-- FABULOUS job on "Hold The Line"... I love that song, and you did a remarkable performance! Loved it! smile

Thanks Jen Glyn and Linda,

It is good practice and Lord knows I need it.
You all sound so great and all!

I don't even know how loud to sing and I'm scared not too keep it down, esp since I don't even come close in vocal range to my favorite songs with a "city in 'em.

This one lists Abelene! A gretchen Wilson song.

Taking' a big breath before I post!

LOL - you all are outta control - I can't keep up smile

But I think I've caught at least one from everyone. Cool to hear "I'm Like Brooklyn" again from Sub (one of my favorite songs anywhere) and "City of New Orleans" from Colin - another big favorite. smile

Wasn't gonna pass up Jen's "King of the Road" either - not sure what I liked best - the video or the music. smile

I grew up in Poland-Struthers, Jen - just on the south side of Youngstown.

Then I listened to Linda's "Hold the Line", Geneva's version of "Guitar Town" and Glyn's take of "Don't Close Your Eyes". I knew Linda and Glyn had good voices - first time I heard Geneva though. Looks like we have another classy country lady in our midst. smile

Closed with Joe's "Pole Dancing for Jesus" - LOL! grin

Sorry about the cough!

I wasn't gonna try this again til I get a mic, but it's fun!

My grand daughters dollars store jobbie I'm usin is a hard plastic thing that hurts and is too big for my ear, falls out, and has a long thing attached that sits near my cheek. I don't get much volume from that that little ear bud, not near my computer volume. I suppose it's a toy, and all I can do is toy with it anyway!

Maybe I'll check out Radio Shack, or if anyone has any ideas please let me know. It's not as if I'm goin' anywhere with it and need much.... 20-50 bucks is cheap entertainment I figure. Thanks! Geneva

BTW The harmony in the chorus from the site really throws me for a loop, it's not how I remember the song, and I can't get past it.. Is it just me or does it bother anyone else!

My animal is a bird for the challenge

I chose sparrows, one of Tanya's songs, another one I can't sing.

Hi glyn,

Shake me I rattle... I could really her a traditional country sound come from your vox on this one, love your drawl.

Bet you'd be awesome singin' Kitty Wells, Patsy, or maybe Brenda Lee!

I'm so happy to wake up and check in this morning and see everything is running smooth as silk!
I will catch up my listening shortly!

Scott -- I'm only holding *myself* as Party Hostess as obliged to listen to everything posted - (which is why I set a limit - !) but each of you participating, just listen to who you can when you can, and it's all good! It's "nice" to listen to one for each one you post - but I'm not holding that as a rule for posting. :-) Thank you all for listening to so much of each other tho!

Awwww and I thought I snuck in Hold The Line where maybe not anybody would catch it!! LOL hhaa..

OK pulling down Joe's player... then I have one to post smile

Hi glyn,

If you were havin' trouble keepin' up, it sure didn't show at this end!

You had no trouble with the harmonizin' chorus like I do either.

I thought you came across as positive, powerful, and confident...You were awesome!

Oh those BLASTED BACKUP SINGERS!!!! Nah that is a COMMON complaint on these karaoke sites.... aaaargh! there are some songs I KNOW I know and I can't sing against whatever harmonies they threw down... aaaarrggggghhhhhh.... it's not "just you," Geneva!!!

Oh and if you have the option and NEED to move the key UP - when there are backing singers - you get the Mickey Mouse/Munchkin choir... and it's just ridiculous... or if you move it DOWN sometimes it's OK and sometimes it's like the Zombie Choir.... LOL!!

You just do your best! I hate them half the time too -- they show me up when my timing went off!! ROFL!
