Thank you! I was a little hesitant at first posting the video because I didn't think a lot of people would care for it. The trouble with having a deep voice like mine is that it's difficult trying to sing higher notes because my voice either cracks or gets raspy. I'm not sure if there's any way on how to make my pitch go higher. I do have social anxiety but there are times where I can be extroverted as well (when I'm with people I feel comfortable around). It's hard though. I always get the "You're so quiet" "Don't you talk." comments.

Thank you PugofCrydee! I'm not sure if I'll ever become a singer though. I don't know how to play any instrument, though I'm still learning how to play the guitar.

Sort of like a SPW karaoke of sorts lol.

Anyway, really excellent work
Thank You Sarah M! I'll admit, I wasn't too sure about posting that video on here, only because I didn't think I sounded all that great. I think my favorite Foo Fighters songs are Everlong, Aurora, and Breakout. What other bands do you like? I agree we should make a SPW karoake thread! I think it would be also good way to reduce social anxiety in people.

Everlong is my jam! I like a very wide variety of music ranging from 50's doo-op stuff to, metal, classical, opera, 90's alternative, 80's pop etc. The only genres I can't really get into are blue grass, country and most rap. Although in my youth, I was a huge rap fan lol. Anyway, how about you? What else do you like?

I think it would be fun to hear other people sing/possibly give a speaking intro. It would make me feel closer to the people on here - especially because most of us have been here for years.

I mainly listen to 90's alternative rock/ hard rock, britpop, electronic, downtempo, ect. There's just so many bands I love, Stone Temple Pilots, The Beach Boys, Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, Sheryl Crowe, Dandy Warhols, ect. There are some pop singers I used to like (Madonna for example), although I'm personally not really a fan of 80's music that much. A lot of people my age listen to Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, ect. I just can't really get into it. Same with techno, rap, hip hop, ect. They just never appealed to me. Although when I was really young, I actually did listen to a lot of that stuff.

It's funny because I actually don't know what made me like that stuff in the first place. I guess maybe because I was surrounded by people my age who listened to those genres. Maybe I was just too scared I wouldn't fit in if I had different music tastes than them. A lot of people I came across couldn't relate to my taste in music anyways. Oh well, you can't please everyone.

You listed some awesome bands! I feel similarly - no one can relate to my taste in music, so I often times feel self-conscious about it. Especially because I listen to metal (like, screaming metal). I think as you get older your tastes evolve and you get exposed to more types of music. I agree you can't please everyone and honestly, you really shouldn't try to. You are you and that's all that you can ever be. For me, music is like my lover - it's very personal, so eff everyone else haha.

Soooo.... I'm going to try to be brave for once in my life and post me singing. I'm doing it here so that I can later delete it.
A few things first:
Things get a little awkward in the intro because I was kind of a nervous wreck - sorry about that.
I know my speaking/singing voice is a bit on the whiney/annoying octave range - sorry about that, again.
I got really into it towards the end and was kind of yelling so you probably want to lower your volume lol.
I can't believe I'm doing this...

Great job, Sarah. Seriously, you can tell your personality is awesome, too.

Best sounding cat gang-bang ever.

You have an amazing voice! Sorry to hear about your thyroid though, that sounds horrible. It's hard for me to stay on pitch when I sing because my voice ends up becoming shaky and it tends to crack a bit. I think you have a much better singing voice.

Oh my gosh, you're far too kind! My voice isn't anything special, but I am thankful for the ability to sing since I used to not be able to. Hey, that's okay, having my thyroid removed was the best thing that's ever happened to me

I still think you did a fantastic job on your cover, FriendlyShadow
