I live in apartments. The last time I sang in the shower, my neighbor flushed the toilets (upstairs and down) until I stopped singing. Yes, it hurt my little itty bitty feelings. I am not a vengeful person, but even if I were, I would not do that to them... they are both amazing singers. If I weren't cheap I would likely buy their album if they had one. He was singing in the shower just now.

What is it about a shower that makes everyone think they can/should sing? Why do I think I sound wonderful and no one else agrees?
What singer do you think you sound like when in the shower? Has anyone ever made an album of people singing in the shower? Did anyone buy one?

I am musically inclined, but cannot carry a tune trying to sing wether it be in the shower or not !!! But certain things in the shower are better………..no, I’m not going there!!!
My son recently enlightened me about a “Shower Beer”. Never heard of it.
Well, when ya come in from working hard and ready to take a hot shower and clean up, ya grab an icy cold beer to take in the shower with ya. I thought he was joking, but it turns out it is a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable experience, and damn if it ain’t one of the best ways to enjoy a beer!!!

I lived in an apartment building in Providence RI in the 80s for around 6 months.
I had to practice my banjo stuff on a solid body electric guitar strung up like a banjo and unplugged or the neighbors would complain.

Other than that unpleasant experience I've lived away from others out here in the Maine woods and play or sing as loudly as I please.

That ^^ reminds me of back when I was young(er) [... and foolish(er)??].  A friend* and I were getting ready to "go out drinking."  In the middle of my shower a hand with bottle of beer appears through the curtain.  My friend had gone out and bought a 6-pack.... for us to drink while we got ready.

* = in a "boarding house" ... are they still a viable form of accommodation?

[P.S. I wasn't singing, so no boarders were harmed in the making of my ^^ story.]

Sounds like your son is a guy I'd like to meet! Years ago working in the rail yard one of my trucker buddies mentioned shower beers. Working in the summer the temps would hit *40c. I used to buy a 6 pack of Miller Highlife in the clear bottles. Put a couple in the freezer to get them extra cold! Best thing after a hard days work!

There is even a site called r/showerbeer ! I just checked & it seems it been taken over by the ladies! NSFW!

Just checked again, mostly guys!

Tongue-in-cheek, bubba, I'm guessing that ^^ probably includes/accounts for half the population.  cheeky

AndrewD You should at least try it on a Friday after a hard week! It's really refreshing . Dedicated people install a small shelf or holder on the wall.

I split renting a big house with my brother, his wife & a buddy of ours . There was a bathroom upstairs with a clawfoot tub. We called it the Girls Bathroom. Us guys used the other one with the shower stall.

I always said I wanted to have a cowboy bath in the clawfoot sometime. We came home from work one day & there was a For Sale sign on the lawn one day.

My brother said I better go for it soon! I got set up with a small table, ghetto blaster for some tunes, bottle of whiskey, cigar & my cowboy hat. I was back downstairs in less than 10 minutes!

It was brutal on my tailbone & hips! No padding! I kept sliding down & got my cigar wet!!

Baths are for ladies! My brother being in the plumbing buissiness likened having a bath in a standard modern bathtub as "Laying down in a sideways urinal" !!

You mean you dont have a shower beer bottle holder????  My kids got me one a few years back, sticks to the tiles/glass and keeps you beer nice and handy!  If i'd known, I'd have included one in your care package smiley

Tell your brother to pee before getting into the bath.
