Sing-a-longs are a time-honored and endlessly amusing road trip tradition. Turn your ditty into a real diversion by playing The Singing Game.

There are many variations on The Singing Game. We call one of our favorites "Song Connection." To play, participants try to string lines from popular songs together in some sort of logical fashion. For instance, if player one sings "Celebrate good times, come on!" from Kool & The Gang's "Celebration," player two could chime in with "C'mon, get happy!" from The Partridge Family, and player three could add "Happy happy joy joy," the Ren & Stimpy song. While there is no particular objective to this game, the sheer silly fun that can ensue will keep your passengers entertained for miles.

Another favorite we call "Rapper's Delight." In this version, players use rhyming skills, environmental cues and creativity to get a dope flow going. Player one might start off with "I see a street sign; it's real green" and player two could pick up with "I'm flying past it in my auto machine."

Can't carry a tune? Fret not. You too can use your voice and creativity to make something out of nothing. Find out how in the next section.
