Maybe they watch too much American Idol and fool themselves into believing they have a talent for singing when in reality, they don’t. And neither do the people who audition and then compete against each other on that show.

If it makes him happy, whaddya gonna do? Maybe he’s singing for the joy of it and doesn’t care if he’s any good or not.

I love my daughter. The girl can’t carry a tune…at all. She sings loudly, in the shower and the three of us just crack up. She knows, it’s not a secret, but I think she embraces her inner screeching.

They probably just like singing. I like singing. I’ve gotten better at it recently (who said Rock Band wasn’t good for anything?), but even when I was pretty much awful I still did it all the time. Because it is fun. And I like it.

I saw this article today and was reminded of this question: Most incompetent people are completely unaware of it.
