Every time I play Singstar I do it falsetto. The mic seems to pick up my voice better that way, and it's additionally hilarious for everyone in the room. You haven't lived until you've heard me sing Barbie Girl as the girl.

Led Zeppelin is always good for a group session, and Enter Shikari.

Don't Stop Believing - OF COURSE

Rush is great for singalongs and drumbeats.

I'm pretty sure SingStar judges by relative pitch or whatever. I like to drop or raise an octave in the middle of a line, and you can do that and still be considered on pitch. Tends to throw the other players, though.

I know it does, but as I said, it picks up my voice better if I do it on a higher octave.

Bugsy Malone. The entire soundtrack. We pepper it with Tim Westwood-isms as well. ("Drop the bomb", "Fall Back", "Kiss the Ring")

So you wanna be a boxah, in da'goldun ring.

HOLD ON TO THAT FEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELIN

Definitely.

With a certain group of people, a couple Beatles songs -- the most enthusiastically sung being "With a Little Help from My Friends" and "Hey Jude" ... cheesy, yes, but so fun. "The Bleeding Heart Show" by the New Pornographers, and anything by Queen that we can at least fake the words to. Also, many musicals, the most frequent of which being Les Mis. By the end we're all a little winded/hoarse.

Umm, okay, so I don't listen to any of the same music you guys do. Best bands for sing alongs-
Andrew W.K., Taking Back Sunday, Los Campesinos!,Big D and the Kids Table, Cursive

There are more... but uh, at the moment, my favorite sing along song is Red Hands by The Dear Hunter.

I sing along in the car when it's U2 or when somebody else is. Otherwise, I won't except for a few certain songs, but I sing along to the music in my head always (hence the fact that I'm singing All Apologies right now.)
maybe if this signature is witty enough someone will finally love me.

I find singing Buena Vista Social Club in the sunshine out of my car window highly enjoyable.

Only problem is, you've gotta prepare for that kinda shit if you don't speak Spanish, so a quick Google of the lyrics and a few printouts prior to setting out, and you're done.

De Alto Cedro voy para Marcané
Llego a Cueto, voy para Mayarí.


Or, as my pronunciation is so dire, I phonetically spell it
Dalto Sedro voy para macca neigh!
Ya-gwar qwerto voy para my-are-ee.

And I can't roll my 'R's. It's genetic. I've succeeded but once in my life ('twas a Dear Diary moment)

This should not be restricted to the car. It should, in fact, be sung once per day, in a public place. If everyone did that, there would be no more wars.

Genetic, you say? I have a new excuse!

also, double posting is sinful. and makes you go blind.

And a fantastic avatar picture of your mustache. Seriously, I'm jealous.

Back on task:
I forgot a band that seems criminal, least to me.
During the summer, I always have the windows down, preference for wind rather than air conditioning. Anyhow, I stated before that I'm always listening to music when I drive(didn't I? Well I do, always) and I was listening to Jukebox Breakdown by Saves the Day. I'll make the story short, leaving me singing as loudly as I possibly could, at a stop light, windows open, next to a gas station, where after the song ended, the light still red, I could here girls laughing. I looked to my right and to my dismay there was a convertible at the gas station with four rather attractive girls, all staring at me, laughing. I quickly turned red until the light turned green, and I proceeded to drive very quickly away from there.
I'd do it again though, no question.
