Top 10 songs you 'should' sing in the shower

275x250.jpgMore than half of Brits have admitted to regularly singing in the shower… even though 43 percent don't even think they are any good.

A recent survey found 55 percent of people enjoy warbling in the shower irrespective of their singing prowess, and songs by Cheryl Cole and Leona Lewis proved popular with both men and women.

The researchers then hired a vocal expert to produce a list of the best songs to sing in the shower based on reverberation, pitch, volume and tone in the tiled cubicles.

'Bohemian Rhapsody' by Queen, was said to be the best suited to belting out in the shower followed by 'Fight for this love' by Cheryl Cole and 'I gotta feeling' by The Black Eyed Peas.

And before you ask, No, Cheryl Cole wouldn't like to do a duet with you in the shower.
Commenting on the research, vocal coach Dane Chalfin said: "The acoustics of the shower complement your voice by adding that warming echo, or ‘reverb’ as it’s called in the recording studio.

"A tile-clad bathroom is like having your own sound engineer at home.  The steam from the shower helps to moistenthe vocal cords allowing them to vibrate more smoothly and with less effort.

"The research also shows that Brits generally prefer songs that let them start softly then build up to a shower screen-shattering belt, so Bohemian Rhapsody is undoubtedly the best track to let you build up your pace and intensity before climaxing with those earth-shaking high notes.  

"Just be careful not to wake the neighbours! “
