A cloud in my head

There is something of a downside to singing along with the music source in your office, reports the ever-trillworthy Francis W. Porretto:

[Y]ou must be aware of your surroundings; there are numerous environments in which singing or whistling will get you “looked at” or worse.

I was walked in on once while following Dee Clark’s 1961 magnum opus “Raindrops,” and seeing no way to conceal what I’d been doing, I restarted the song and sang it all the way through — including the scream at the end. This is no easy task, I assure you.

But I can’t sing that song anymore; the, um, local humidity is too high. Yeah. That’s the ticket.

    One of my favorites. Not sure I could ever do the scream at the end, though. :)

    During a brief infatuation with karaoke, about a decade ago, I learned that my range is a whole lot more limited than I thought it was.
