Worst Singer in Skyrim

#1ryan-stocksPosted 2/23/2013 7:38:28 AM
So my character was at the Windpeak Inn in Dawnstar talking to the priest, Erandur, when I heard the most awful , disturbing rendition of "Ragnar The Red" being sung behind me. I turned around and saw none other than the red-haired bardess, Karita. The stranger part of this story was that the people staying at the inn clapped wildly for her after she was done. After hearing her sing, I have come to the conclusion that she must be the worst singer in Skyrim. Can anybody name any other NPCs who have just awful voices. Please share and please go find Karita so you know what I am talking about.

You forgot to also mention that the people at that inn are tone deaf.

What was the name of the Orc bard? The one that was so bad, multiple people put a hit out on him? Lurbuk?

If I ever cared about what you had to say, I'd stick a shotgun in my mouth and pull the trigger with my toes.

That's different, he was bad because he was meant to be bad. Some of the bards in the taverns are just bad because they can't sing at all. It's like they got anyone they could find to just sing the songs in-game and didn't worry if it sounded good or not.

I came here to answer, "That chick in Dawnstar" even before reading the opening post. She reminds me of Shirley Bassey singing Goldfinger:

You saw her dress, right? There's a reason that they're clapping, and it has nothing to do with her voice.

Worse singer in Skyrim? Probably the Dovahkiin, at least mine anyways. He joined the Bard's College, but can't play any instrument. He can't sing because every time he opens his mouth people are either blown away, set on fire, frozen, or drained of their vital life essence.

On the few occasions I heard Lurbuk play/sing, I didn't think he was that bad. But yeah, some of the female singers really are quite bad.

My personal favourite singer is the Skald in Markarth. His voice just has the necessary quality for the songs he sings.
