Blame Glenn B. for this. He's the reason you're about to witness me butchering two classics. In the comments to this post, he challenges me thusly:
The specific challenge is this, get your arse in gear quickly, in your kilt of choice, and make a video of yourself singing either Oh Danny Boy or The Star Spangled Banner (the whole song for either one and neither one an easy song to sing) and post the video on You Tube by this Saturday or sooner.
I am pretty sure you have the chutzpah to do it. I don't know if you have the voice I actually want to hear singing either;) BUT I will listen all the way through and donate more once I hear and see you do it! So, for what I figure to be about 15-30 minutes of work, and about 2 minutes of singing, you can get your cause posted on YouTube and have a worldwide audience that may bring in more donations.
Caution: Severe ear damage may result from the viewing of the following video. Abandon all hope, oh ye who watch the following...
Yes, it's technically two videos pulled together. While I might have been able to sing the Star Spangled Banner without lyrics, there was no way I could have made it through "Danny Boy" without help. Please note: I have never claimed to be a singer; I have never wanted to be a singer; I have never harbored any illusions that I could carry a tune in a bag...
If you're impressed at my
That is all.
