Singing Practice with Hooked on a Feeling
I'm a sucker for pop songs. This was one of my favorites when I was a kid and I remember singing it all the time.
I had forgotten about it until the first Guardian of the Galaxies movie came out. I then bought the karaoke track and have been singing it for a while when I want to have some fun.

What singing Techniques I'm Practicing
As for the training part, I'm working hard to keep an "unrelenting flow of tone", which is how the famous voice coach Richard Miller describes "legato".
I'm always working to keep my false vocal folds retracted and my lower throat as open as possible.
This song is already very bright and I probably sing it a little too bright. I do so because I'm training in "over-compensation mode", if there's such a thing, to fix problems I've had in the opposite direction (dull sound, smothered sound).
