Of all the things I can do well, singing isn't one of them for sure. Am like, almost tone deaf.
Having watched the Malayalam movie Urumi over the weekend, I was completely smitten by the very folk, traditional songs in it, particularly one called "Appa Nammade" in it. It's a beautiful short piece and I wanted nothing more than sing it again and again and again.
So I did. I sang it like a million times. The hubby was not at home to burst my singing bubble, so I sang as much as I wanted to, as loudly as I wanted to.
And then it struck me that I could actually easily record my singing and listen to it objectively from a third party point of view. So I did that too. And here is the thing... probably due to the type of song this is (full-throat, simple, and in my pitch), the recorded version didn't sound as bad as I thought I did in my head!
Wah! How awesome!
So here's to many more my own renditions of Appa Nammade, for my own ears!
372 more to go.
