So, you’ve fitted your brand new shower pump from Pump Sales Direct, the hot water is running, you’re feeling fine, what better time to let your inner star shine? What are the best in-shower songs? The team here have compiled a list of all-time favourites, in no particular order.
1. Tiny Dancer by Elton John
We all remember that wonderful scene in Almost Famous when the whole bus burst out singing. For most people it only takes the words ‘Hold me closer…’ and we’re off!
2. Twist and Shout by The Beatles
Twist and shout is the classic in-shower song, but we recommend that you don’t do too much twisting.
3. Sitting On the Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding
It’s smooth, it’s easy, and it has lots of ‘oh-oh-ohs’ for those who can’t remember the words.
4. Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers
For those days when you don’t really feel like singing at all, this is the track you need. Let Bill Withers help you to get it all off your chest.
5. Crazy In Love by Beyonce
For those days when you don’t need Bill, there’s Beyonce. Bathroom tiles are great for making you think you’ve got the vocal strength of Queen B.
6. Sweet Child of Mine by Guns N’ Roses
Now and again you need to unleash your inner rocker. Just try not to hit your head on the showerhead during the solos.
7. Love Shack by The B-52s
You don’t need a perfect voice for this one; in fact, it helps if you don’t have one. Just get down and groovy.
8. It’s the End of the World by REM
When you sing in the shower you often hope no one is listening; however, if you know all the words to this one, be proud and be loud.
9. Jessica by The Allman Brothers Band
Never heard of it? If you haven’t sung it in the shower, you’ve sung it in the car. It’s the theme tune to BBC’s Top Gear.
10. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
You might deny it, but everyone has harmonised all alone in the perfect reverberation of a well-tiled shower and imagined themselves on stage at Wembley, or at least in the car with Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World.
