Odd song time:
"Heartbeat" by Don Johnson.
Why did this happen.

Odd song (and artist!) of the day:
You have heard of Florence Foster Jenkins- an outsider classical musician that was made famous .
How about the Top 40 version from the 1960s? Here she is, with "Downtown" as you've NEVER heard it. She did her own whistling, too!
Mrs. Miller's hit song of an old Petula Clark Classic About Mrs. Miller Elva Ruby Miller (née Connes; October 5, 1907 – July 5, 1997), who recorded under the...
Odd song of the day! Yeah, this one's a little bit more well known..but odd (and awesome!) nevertheless!
Eddie Murphy with "Party all the Time". Talk about a man that can do it all.
(FWIW, I adore this comedy, but he just sounds downright silly in this song. Again, totally not a bad thing.....but.....yeah)

Odd song of the day is a gem from the short lived TV show COP ROCK.
From Episode 7 of Cop Rock
I’ve got your odd song of the day￼!!!! Enjoy!!!
I hope all of you are singing and laughing. If you’re not laughing, maybe that will change after watching this.￼
Odd song of the day:
"Turn me Loose " by Fabian.
Why you probably don't know Fabian if you are under a certain age: he was terrible.
He was a trailblazer, though! His short career was based on the fact they thought the teenage girls would think he was cute- he had never sung a note in public before talent agents approached him. After watching this, you won't have a hard time believing it. Thanks to this model, think of all the pop stars that lucked out this way. The list is endless!
Born on February 6, 1943 to Josephine and Domenic Forte, Fabian Forte was actually discovered at the age of 14 sitting on his front steps in Philadelphia. Fa...

I help with allllll of that.
Been away for a while? It's time to come back to lessons for some expressive singing!
