Serenade Your Wife
If there’s ever been something that’s been considered a “classic” romantic act, especially in the movies, it’s the maiden on the tower balcony, with her love down below, singing to her. Okay, okay, I know it’s a little corny; but, so what? If she likes it, who cares if the neighbors think you’ve lost a few marbles.
You know, if love songs weren’t so important, there wouldn’t be so many of them written. In reality, they’re just another way of saying “I love you.” It just happens to be that those words are said in song.
So, what’s your musical style? You know, it won’t do any good for you to try and sing in some other style, it’s got to be you. Even better, it’s got to be the two of you together. Somehow, I can’t see it being all that romantic for you to sing to her in a style that she can’t stand. Don’t think that one will work.
Oh, you say you can’t sing? Yeah, well, I’ve got the same problem. In fact, two of my kids are classically trained musicians, and it’s guaranteed that they’ll start complaining, if I dare to start singing. Okay, there’s a solution for that one too. Have you ever heard of lip sinking? That’s where you just mouth the words, and let whichever famous singer you prefer provide the voice. After all, they’re the pros, why not use their expertise.
Oh, and if you don’t want the neighbors throwing rocks at you, you might want to sing from the back yard, instead of the front.
