"Maybe the truth is simpler -- maybe you just can't sing. No shame in it;
check out a recording of "Four or Five Times" by Benny Goodman to verify
that singing and clarinet playing are not necessarily correlated."

Or singing and musicianship in general. Billy Strayhorn singing "Something
to Live for" on a Red Baron CD is undoubtedly the worst job of singing I
have heard since I heard recordings of that socialite soprano who used to
hire a hall and sing for her pals in the 1950's. (What was her name?)
