Okay, let’s get this embarrassment over with. I could probably have done this one better (erm?) if I had done it like a thousand more times before posting, but in the spirit of Fabulous Fearlessness I’m going to just share this one with you as it is. It’s okay, I think. And it’s honestly not going to sound a whole lot better even if I did do it a bunch more times right now, because I can’t sing super loud here unless I want to annoy the crap out of my neighbours and/or worry that I’m bugging them and that I sound ridiculous. (I’m so longing for that soundproof studio I’ll get access to in a couple of months. I’m excited to actually find out what my voice can sound like, because I’ve never sung at the top of my lungs and I’m dying to!)
And yeah, I know I probably shouldn’t make excuses so much for the songs I post here (it’s not like it’s going to change anything about my performance or what people will hear when they listen to it!), but hey, what can I say, I’m self-conscious like hell about it and for some reason I want people to know that I am in fact aware of my flaws even if I choose to ignore them and post songs anyway. ;)
This time I decided to go with Disney. The little mermaid was the movie that opened my eyes (ears?) to music. I was six. My sister told me at one point (the first time I tried singing a song from the movie actually) that I “didn’t sound at all like Ariel”, and I was totally crushed and basically never felt ‘safe’ singing again. So I’m always worrying about people thinking I’m not good enough. It’s getting better though. I’ve realized that I’m not going to be perfect, I’m not going to sound like Ariel (or whoever), I’m going to sound like me, and I have to practise and make a shitload of mistakes if I ever want to learn more and improve. And I do. So here is my latest mistake! :D And, you know, excuse the bad ‘acting’ haha for the parts where she kind of speaks sentences, as well as the parts where I’m off key and stuff like that. But you know this, so why am I even saying this? Nerves. My poor nerves!
Oh, and I put some reverb on it. I had to! There’s no music and so much voice (shudder). Also, she sings it in a cave, so… you know… that’s just the echo. 0:)
