Ok so my daughter is an amater song writer/gutarist, she has written a song for her boyfriend for Xmas (yeah makes me shudder too, but what can you do ;) ).

 

I've tried squawking down a mic....and it ended badly, very badly she nearly disowned me....

 

I'd like to request if anyone on Neowin can sing and has 10mins to spare, if they could help me & her out by singing it and sending me the recording so i can mix it over her playing the guitar 

 

I'd be forever grateful :D

A lovely idea. Sadly I'm the same as you, I go to sing and windows and mirrors shatter before the first note leaves my mouth. :laugh:

Will we be able to hear the finished result?

I wouldn't even dare try to sing - I sound like Ringo Starr on dope when singing. Unless you want your daughter's bf to have nightmares I'll pass. :p

That reminds me, we need to get your christmas present. You wanted the 12-gauge, right? :p

Might we be able to see the lyrics here? I just thought, you're not going to want someone who "sings" (ref: screams) metal music to try singing a love song about puppies and unicorns.

I can't sing either I'm afraid... But I could mix it if you wanted and add some pitch correction to polish it off :)

Cats hiss and spit, dogs howl, when I start singing unfortunately.

Have you considered using an electronic voice for the lyrics?

Have you tried switching it off and on again? :p
Sorry my singing for you would not only end her relationship, but rather likely cause death in small furry creatures and would result in multple divorce cases.

I stink at singing and I cant sing at all. I like to sing "Rick Astley Never Gonna Give You Up" and "Gangnam Style" to annoy my family on occasions though. :D
