When is the last time you sang? My guess is it has been too long! Years ago when the karaoke craze first hit the USA, I dove in head first. I love singing, and being on stage is so much fun. At first, my dad who was always in a band, thought karaoke was silly. I begged him to try it, but he wouldn’t! I even booked him as the KJ at my mom’s 50th birthday party, and he wouldn’t do it! I had to! Finally, he tried it, fell in love with it, and was basically the first and biggest karaoke guy Northwestern Wisconsin has ever seen. (I just love it when I’m proven right!)
Then, there was the time that I took over for the karaoke jockey at a swanky club in San Francisco because she was in way over her head. I had so much fun, and my coworkers were a bit surprised! The KJ loved it because she made more in tips than she ever had before. Ahhh… memories.
Oh, and my mom is the best at singing improv! She can make up a silly song about anything that’s happening. We just need to start writing them down! She can bring joy to any situation with her quick wit and impressive rhymes. Just thinking about it cracks me up!
Okay, where was I? Oh yeah, I was telling you about karaoke and improv singing because it is SO MUCH FUN! Casting off your inhibitions and singing is sure to be a good time. You don’t have to be a great singer, you just have to get into it!
Singing can actually improve your health! Speaking of dad, now that he’s older he has multiple health problems. His doctors have said if he hadn’t been a singer with such tremendously strong lungs, he probably wouldn’t still be here! Singing is a natural anti-depressant. It strengthens your core muscles and diaphragm, and taking deep breaths lowers stress and improves mental alertness.
So, when the makers of Spontuneous : The Song Game asked us to include their game I jumped at the chance!
What is Spontuneous?
Spontuneous, a play on words from spontaneous, is a board game that requires players to think quickly. As you move around the treble clef, your opponents pick cards and read the special word. Then, you have to use that word in a song as fast as you can. If you can’t they get a chance to steal by coming up with their own song.
It’s fast moving and loud, but the best part? It doesn’t matter if you can sing or not. Nobody’s judging you! Bring the kids and grandparents too, it’s fun for all ages! And, all genres of music!
Talent Not Required, Sing It or Shout It!
- Ages 8 & Up, 4-10 players/teams recommended.
- Millions already do it – You hear a word, a song pops into your head, and you spontaneously burst into a TUNE! For example: Can you think of a song with the word “COWBOY” in it? How ’bout “HEART”? Blurt it out then! Don’t worry about your voice, let it rip!
