Top Ten Additional Songs To Sing Along In The Car With (Even If I Can't Hit All the Notes)

10. "Carolina in My Mind," James Taylor
9. "Friends in Low Places," Garth Brooks
8. "Rock and Roll," Led Zeppelin
7. "I Go Blind," Hootie and the Blowfish
6. "Yellow Ledbetter," Pearl Jam
5. "Landslide," Fleetwood Mac
4. "Santeria," Sublime (although I like to substitute the lyrics, "I'm not Edgar Renteria. I don't like to play baseball . . ."
3. "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me," Elton John
2."Cult of Personality," Living Colour
1. "Need You Tonight," INXS

With these lists, there are no jokes. These songs come on in the car, watch out, I'm singin'. And no, I don't care if I hit the notes. I'm singin'. And I love it. I don't pretend I'm on American Idol. I don't care if my voice goes to pot. I only slightly mind if someone pulls up next to me in traffic. (And I could probably do 100 of these lists.)

Rock on.

  1. I have a TERRIBLE singing voice made even worse by a surgeon nicking a nerve to my voice box. But I don't care. When I'm in the car and one of the songs comes on - I ROCK! (Ha! I'm glad nobody can really hear me).

    I notice when someone else is doing this in their car and they know nobody can hear them (but you can still see them and know what they are doing). I simply smile and go on my way...


It's okay. Let it out.
