Where Have You Been And Sang … ?

I thought this an interesting topic, that kinda got us all chatting about,
Places we’ve been, there was a song associated with the location and
sang it.

You mean the way I sing "California here I come, right back where I started from" ? OK, if I'm on a plane I just sing it in my head. It's not safe anymore to act crazy on a plane.

In the Summer of 2011, DH and I took a road trip and one
of the places that we went, that was SOOOOOOOO amazing,
was Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs.
We took the Cog Railway to the top, over 14,000 feet above sea level...

And yes, I did stand there, looking out over this gorgeous vista,
and sang America The Beautiful.
albeit was a little hard, being so out of breath,
but I did it, out loud!
I can see why Ms Bates wrote this, WOW!!!

I sang America The Beautiful while traveling through Colorado on the way home from visiting Arizona. Granted I was in the back seat with my severely damaged foot elevated (we had an accident and I spent 7 days in Kingman, Arizona hospital hoping not to loose my foot. That's another long story.) but it was still beautiful from the back window! Sedona was beautiful also but no song to sing.

BTW I never understood "purple mountains majesty" or appreciated the beauty described in that song until I visited Arizona. (I posted America The Beautiful with pictures to go along once.)

Done a few of those due to working with music.
My music friends used to sing one song every time I jumped into river to have swim, which was rather often, it about a girl with my name who drowns her self in a river.

There's a song that I sing very quietly to myself as tears roll down my cheek,
as we leave Honolulu International Airport ...

I'm enjoying this thread. I can't think of specific songs I've sung (in my head ) other than the California song Kay mentioned, and America the Beautiful that MsM referred to. I'll have to think about it....it's hard to beat the Winslow Arizona one, that one is still stuck in my mind.

Ya know Ms M, DH have this discuss on each road trip.
We love the West for the wide open spaces, in the East
things are packed together, although beautiful.

I'd have to say I just marvel at the sheer breath-taking vistas
all around the World that we've seen, so far ... I could get religious,
but I think that we're not suppose to talk religion nor politics, but someone sure did a great job!

I sing Oh What a Beautiful Morning Lyrics and "Oklahoma" while driving the back road home through the corn and sunflower fields...this all leads to watching Twister again. I know, I'm singing it in Wyoming, but WY does not have many songs associated with it.

I've sang Gary, Indiana on a car trip to Chicago.

And of course, Chicago, with some accompanyment:

I sing a lot in my head, more out loud now it's just me in the truck. But, I sing whatever, nothing really specific to place.

I think America the Beautiful should be our national anthem. The Star Spangled Banner is about war.

I particularly like “Confirm thy soul in self control, thy liberty in law.” Particularly resonating in these times.

Here is the real question... Who here plays air guitar?

I like to sometimes sing along with my favorite songs, and have been known to play air guitar... or air drums. Of course, not in public.

It is kind of like singing in the shower, IMO. Playing a killer guitar or drum solo with nothing but air is a fun way to unwind.

C'mon, admit it.

Air drums?

You know you can just bang on whatever is in front of you, and you make percussion sounds, right?

The drumsticks put dents in the furniture.

I've gotten a number of odd looks from neighboring cars when I rock out at traffic lights. I just smile.
