Thanks to everyone who posted comments over the course of the Halloween carol, I was forced into making a youtube video of myself singing the carol. Here it is. I accept no responsibility for anything.
!!!WARNING!!! – Singing voice is extremely bad!
My little challenge to the regular readers of this page (Yes, both of you) has been met and matched. Twenty comments by five or more people, spread over the length of the Carol so far. This is thanks in no small part to “Sooky”, who’s determination to hear me sing in public was both endearing and terribly, terribly naive, after all I know what I sound like and she – poor child – has yet to learn. However, a bet is a bet and I’ll performing my carol in full and a capella later this afternoon or tonight, depending on how busy my afternoon turns out to be.
You have been warned…
So… Over on Facebook I said that I would sing the carol on youtube if I got 20 or more comments over the length of the carol from five or more different commentors. The count currently stands at three comments from two different people. Halloween is only a couple of days away, so I think the world is safe from my, quite frankly appalling, singing voice just now. That could all change today though, as people wake up and see the links a certain person has posted.
Those who know me personally and have been subjected to my rendition of Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls” at karaoke nights may be grateful the count is currently so low. Those others, who don’t care so much about the quality of the vocal stylings as they do for watching a grown man squirm, may yet tip the vote in their favour though. Whatever happens, I’ll stand by the results and if necessary, punish those who commented by posting the video on this blog.
