Bane of the Universe the Second: Them What Sings Too Loud in Church


(Please read the title aloud in a cockney accent.)

You know when you’re in church, and everything's cool, just singing some hymns, appreciating their lovely vintage syntax, trying to ignore the pianist who’s pounding out chords a little too efficiently, bonding with the congregation, no big, and all of a sudden you hear someone just BELTING IT with a look of total satisfaction on their faces and their eyes closed?

Ugh, that’s so annoying!

Don’t even get me started on people who harmonize during “Happy Birthday.”

  1. O. M. PEOPLE HARMONIZING TO HAPPY BIRTHDAY

    I work in the one non-musical part of my university's school of music and this Monday one of our staff members had a birthday. Everything was fine and normal until a volunteer from a separate part of the department stopped in and decided to start an impromptu singing of "Happy Birthday." Not only did she harmonize, she CONDUCTED us and made us hold some notes longer than others. I'm still upset about this.

    Also, this entry is wonderful.

  2. Your comment is greater than the entry itself. I can't even deal with how she made you hold some notes longer than the others. WE ARE NOT YOUR CHOIR!!
