    Just listening to Pandora and Pearl Jam's "Black" came on. It's extremely difficult for me to listen to it without singing. There are a couple Tool songs like that for me, too, and some classics like "Stand By Me" and "Lean On Me." I know Cartman has "Come Sail Away" - what about the rest of you?

    Most of you have probably never heard of these, but:
    Foundations, Build Me Up Buttercup
    Doobie Brothers, Black Water
    Sugarland, Life in a Northern Town
    Trace Adkins, Honky Tonk Badonkadonk

    I have a tendancy to crank up the radio when driving and sing along with whatever comes on, so there are many, many more...but those were the first ones I thought of.

    It has been a while, but at one time I could even do the whole baseball sequence along with him, word for word. Haven't heard that song in years. Ah, memories...!

    Once I learn the words, I can never forget them, and must sing every time I hear them. Now if only I could learn school material like I learn songs.

    If I know the words, I sing along. And I know the words to a lot of songs. I drive my wife nuts because I can usually pick up the words of a song after 2 listens. Weird talent of mine. I have no problem being seen singing in my car either.

    Amusing side note: My wife is horrible at picking up lyrics, however one day on our way to my daughter's soccer game, Beastie Boys Paul Revere came on and she busted out the whole thing word for word. So proud!

    I'd commend someone that can get through the final minute of Black Water without singing along.

    It's much the same with the final minute of Life in a Northern Town...
