i sadly cannot sing a note. however, this does not deter me from singing all the time. the songs in the mix are songs that could i sing, i would sing them. and i would sing them swimmingly.

note: some songs on this mix are sung by girls who can't technically "sing." i don't care. i still want to sound like them.
