Oh, I would want to hear your voice (i love billy bragg and kurt cobain is ok)
Edit: What song where you singing?
Confession: Every time anyone mentions nirvana or grunge in general i have to suppress an obsession to ask if they have heard Alice in Chains and whether they like it better or worse than nirvana. Because Alice in Chains is the best grunge band! (their mtv unplugged is also better than nirvanas)
umm thanks, but i have never sung in front of anybody since maybe kindergarten. before that i was constantly singing alanis morissette. i think i was singing "a new england" or "the world turned upside down" or "st. swithin's day". i forget. i have not ever heard alice in chains. they may be better grunge musicians for all i know. it doesn't seem like an excuse, actually. billy bragg is the best! i mostly don't listen to grunge, to tell you the truth. yes, now you get to blast me for liking them only because they were the popular ones. i mostly like some punk (old stuff only and don't test me on my knowledge please), country (NOT POP COUNTRY) at least i think it would be classified as country, or maybe folk (cowboy junkies? townes van zandt? jackson browne? help please), and classic rock (again, i suspect that's what it would be classified as) and MOD. yay mods (you're probably getting sick of the parentheses but please please please don't test me on my knowledge)! yeah but the influence of all of them on my voice is sort of weird sounding, i've got an american accent (having never been out of the continent).
confession: i hate to belong to flocks with a large following among people i actually know, but i don't like heavy metal either. [EDIT] was trying to convince me to like it last night and it is absolutely not music. i don't care whether they're accomplished musicians, they are not good songwriters. it doesn't sound like anything but the dump truck or dishes breaking plus some distortion. and yes, i know the sex pistols [EDIT] are bad musicians, but they could at least sound like they could write good songs. it's not just whacking things and screaming in finnish/portuguese/whatever they were screaming in. heavy metal is just noise. i should stop posting in this thread now.
and jaydee, i didn't even know the slang meaning until you posted that.
