    Good morning Mar...I just sang yesterday...I really couldn't remember the words and to someone listening it may have been quite scary.

    I love singing.  I would say that I sing something on a daily basis.  I also help my son with his harmonies as he is a singing teacher for children in London and he has to try them out with someone!  Getting better now - practice makes purr fect,  Miaow!

    I sing all the time, everyday, especially while driving, so that is pretty much daily.  However, I love singing with my granddaughters when they are up, which is often.  Lily, who will be three in March, especially loves "Angels We Have Heard On High," throughout the year, as there is a special angel in their room at my house and when I hold her to sing to her before putting her down for bed, she and I sing her choice of that special song just between she and I.  I think she almost could sing that song before she could speak a sentence, as I started singing it to her when she was just born.  She has such a great memory and she always remembers the words to that particular song, and it has words one would think would be hard for a toddler to attempt to pronounce much less remember.  She makes sure she asks me to sing that song.  It is just the sweetest time together.  Funny how my mind works though, as far as songs on the radio, I cannot seem to remember the words until my brain hears the first note, and then all the words comes flooding back.  Love to sing while doing everyday mundane things, i.e., housework, etc., as it just lifts one's spirits.

      Oh Faith, so sure you are singing through your days, especially with sweet Lily.  I am with you on that...I totally agree that singing a song can lift one's spirit in a heartbeat.  Your answer is as beautiful as you!

    Hello Mar, Actually right before I answered this question. lol I find myself singing just out of habit I guess. And it isn't a pleasant sound either.

    I love music as it makes me feel good, so I sing every day. Nowadays I often catch myself singing old tunes that were once popular on the radio but have long disappeared from the top charts. I'm surprised I still remember to not only the melody but the lyrics too.

      Zsuzsi,  What a cool name!  It is amazing that I cannot remember things from a few hours ago, yet I can also remember inane lyrics from when I was a child...and I am fossil material.  I appreciate you making that point.

    i sing to my kid every night before he goes to sleep. It is a habit since he was a baby. I only sing to myself when i am in the kitchen alone, with the radio on, tuning my favorite radio station. My humming is totally out of tune.

      Your kid will always be able to hear your beautiful voice at the times he needs to in life...I still remember " catching Mom in her Southern accent", some of the sweetest sounds I have ever heard.

    I'm singing now Mar, singing back up for Joni...is a link allowed?

    Great question. I usually do the 'sing along' kind of singing. Cats aren't too fond of it, they run and hide... smile

    1. marcoujor profile image81
      marcoujorposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I always associate you with Joni's music...you are a beautiful free spirit. Keep singing, if a cat "runs and hides", it's a compliment!

    I am laughing about this question. Yesterday, I was walking through the store with Katy and we were both singing to the music on the radio in there. Then we went around the corner and found two others singing the song too. We all started laughing.

      Now " that" is the power of suggestion and I am also guilty of the same thing, Becky!  Good to laugh for any reason...!!

    Maria......Much to the dismay of those within ear-shot......I sing all the time, with or without background music.  Another one of those life long habits, picked up from childhood.
    My Dad was a musician.  A very talented one.  He and his 3 brothers, sang the most beautiful 4-part A capella  harmony, anyone could have had the pleasure to hear.  He played sax, both alto and tenor, and also wrote music.  He had a copyright on a couple of hymns, that the choir of our church, sang.
    Our mother was a "listener," only, but truly liked music played in our home.....When my Dad wasn't singing, or playing his sax...he whistled tunes, as he worked around the house.   A record or tape or even the radio, seemed to be "on," at all hours of the day and night, in our home.
    I sing to my grandchildren.....when I rock them to sleep.....and I sing in the car....and I'll be damned if I don't "whistle," while I'm working around the house.
    Some things just happen.....continue.....and are a part of your life.

      Oh what lovely memories and I am sure your home was and is filled with much joyful music, including whistling!  Thank you for stopping by, Paula!

    Hi! The last time I sang was yesterday when my wife and I harmonized several Christian hymns, along with her piano accompaniment, at an assisted living facility not far from home.

    It's an honor to also be called upon to sing solos, and some of my recent "covers" have been Chris Rice's "Amazing Grace" and Steven Curtis Chapman's "Be Still and Know."

    When did I last sing to myself? It was in the shower the other day...I was singing a song that I wrote years ago called, "Tropical Rainbow." Maybe I'll do a hub video of it one of these days.

    Thanks for asking...and thank you even more for being such an inspirational and amazing human being!

    Hi mar, I sing all the time as soon as I hear a favourite I am in there giving it all... but without music to keep me in tune people beg me to stop smile  I last sang to my grandchildren and of course I used to sing to my cockatoo, he was the dancer

    I sing nonsense songs all the time to my rats, cats, dog and ferrets and to my husband and his belly...often to popular show tunes. Especially in the shower.

    My mom used to sing such songs to us as kids. I always vowed I would never do anything that silly. Guess I was wrong.

    However when I'm cleaning I prefer to whistle along with the songs because I'm a better whistler than a singer.

      OMG, do you sing " Ben" to your rat...you sound like such a funny and sweet person, even singing to your husband's belly!  Thank you for your fabulous comment and please keep singing and whistling!
