I'm taking voice lessons for the first time in ten years. It's going okay, but today I was asked to learn "Candle on the Water" from "Pete's Dragon".
Well, I have learned the song, but it's really dumb.
This reminds me of something that happened when I was about six. I did this show or film or something. I was supposed to go down the slide in the playground and the director told me to say "Wheeee!" on the way down. I told him that kids don't say things like that. It's dumb. Go to any playground, you will not hear a single kid going "Wheee!" I refused, and a battle ensued. I won. So if you are ever watching tv and see a kid in a light blue coat, with long, white-blonde hair, going silently down a slide, that's me. On the advice of my mom, I made sure my face was showing clearly so they couldn't dub anything in later. I think they used fruity music instead.
Speaking of fruity music, I'm doing the song a week from today and you can bet that will be the last time I sing it. I'm meeting with another vocal coach sometime this week, so then I'll have two. That's gonna be fun...I heard the other one is sort of rock n rolly.
Oh yeah, and I have to get a digital recording device too. o teh laffs just keep on comin!
