Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. Ladies and gentlemen. I have in this box twenty-three white mice. Mice which have been painstakingly trained over the past few years, to squeak at a selected pitch. This is E sharp... and this one is G. You get the general idea. Noe these mice are so arranged upon this rack, that when played in the correct order they will squeak 'The Bells of St Mary's'. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you on the mouse organ 'The Bells of St Mary's'. Thank you.

Sorry Subby, that's incorrect. The mice can hit the high notes, Adele can only crack her voice and sound like a drunken sailor.

And the drunken sailors know they can't sing.

buntz: Say what you want about her, I think she the woman can sing


I don't get the hate on her singing ability. As far as her voice goes, she's at least as good as all of the other auto-tuned pop starlets that are all over the charts.

The fact that she's large enough to have a number of smaller singers locked in planetary orbit around here is fair game, though.

Geebus, will you guys edit? I had two beers at lunch and "she the woman" and "around here" are making my eyes cross.

As far as Adele goes (and a little goes a long way) she's just another of the current pack of over-emotive vocalists who think that every song, indeed every note, should be sung with the same intensity. That alone gives each of her performances a depressing sameness. Years ago, back when we had to listen to stone tablets on steam-powered turntables, it was fashionable for vocalists to be emotionally UN-involved in their work (Linda Rondstadt being the chief offender, even Nelson Riddle couldn't cure her of that) so I guess the wheel has come full circle.

Altered that so it fits with my opinion.

Of course, now I have to wonder if any sound files exist of cheeping mice (shifted down so we humans can hear the squeak-song) like there are of rat laughter. :D

(Yes, rats laugh when you tickle them. Yodeling mice are probably less of a surprise in that context)

/still prefer rats to mice, though; rats are smart and social, whilst mice...will take a message and get back to you :D

I haven't been able to figure out why I don't like Adelle. She just doesn't move me. Maybe it's like someone said, she over emotes every note so none of them have any impact.

Fun fact: if you record mice singing and slow it down by 800% it sounds like the backing vocals on "Tarzan Boy" by Baltimora.*

* may not actually be a fact.

Only if you stick a gay lead singer into the room with the mice.

We had a house with rats once. We made the decision not to harm them. Consequently, have-a-heart trap as we might, we never quite got rid of them all. We sometimes heard the rats singing. At first we thought birds had also gotten into the house. It took us a while to figure out it was the rats. They sing very nicely especially when they've successfully made it in and out of the trap and back to their little home in the wall with the peanut butter cracker.
