Only during the few times I was working on choral pieces.  Usually I'm listening to the radio (located outside the shower, thank you!).

I may have hummed through my Summer Solo while learning it a few times, too. (I do one solo all summer with the Hollis Band, and a second one in October with them.)

Bardolph's sleep aria from Falstaff perhaps?  Are you a baritone?

Tile showers have really strong resonances that ring after you sing them.  When we stay in a motel I always try to find the most resonant note and tune it up so the shower's 'singing' the  note after I quit.  My wife thinks I'm nuts.

I sometimes sing in the shower. But I prefer singing in the shower at my uncles place. It has a very high ceiling and tiled walls. The Accoustics in there are perfect for makeing anyones singing sound great.

Hey, there's nothing crazy about that! I bet most musicians do the same thing. I love finding that resonant 'sweet spot' in hotel and motel showers when on the road.

I don't like showers. Gimme a nice steamy bubbly bath any day of the week! OK, I know it wastes water, but I don't have a dishwasher, only use the washing machine every two/three weeks, don't have a garden to water, and *never* wash the car, so I think I'm entitled!

In the bath, I usually read and/or listen to the radio. My singing is reserved for the lucky audiences listening to my band.... :-P
