As I've become an Auntie recently, I've been having to dig into my archive of songs I know that are fun to sing, so that I can get the little one to sleep when her mama isn't able to.
So, What is a song that you love to sing? What songs do you love to sing just because you think they're flattering to your voice? If you had to sing a baby to sleep, what song would you choose? Is there a certain song you always find yourself singing in certain situations? A go-to favourite that you sing in the shower or while doing dishes?
For me, I sing Go To Sleep Little Baby from O' Brother, Where Art Thou? when trying to get Scarlett to calm down. I sing Lean on Me at work when I try to start a fast-food sing along. And when I'm by myself and in a singing mood, I go to Hallelujah. And I'd have to say I choose all of them because I have a very deep voice and none of those songs have any super-high notes that I'd have to strain to hit. I sing them just because I think they make my voice, as untrained as it may be, sound decent.
What about you?
