I am tone deaf, and have no rhythm.

I have noticed, when singing along with music, that sometimes I feel a sort of buzzing in my throat and chest. I've been wondering if that's happening because I'm actually hitting the same note as the singer, or if it's because I'm very badly off key. Because I am tone deaf, I can't tell! A third option may be that I have triggered the latent death bomb buried in my chest cavity, and am going to explode.

I'd never be able to hit the high note on the doo-doo-doo-da-doo-dooo-AH!, so I should be safe!

The buzzing probably means you're either on pitch or harmonizing. As stupid as this sounds, try to get that buzzing feeling with, say, a microwave, and have someone else listen and tell you if you're on or off pitch. I've found it's a little easier with electrical objects than a piano. If you practice enough, you may be able to "feel" when you're on, instead of having to hear when you're on.

neeuqdrazil has near perfect pitch... I may try this next time I want to torture her with my terrible, terrible voice.

You may also be hitting the resonant frequency of your chest. Does it specifically happen on a given note/range, or random ones while singing?

It happens at specific points in specific songs if I'm singing in what I think it my "proper" range - I have a bad habit of singing far too low, specifically because then I do hit the resonant frequency of my chest, which gives me the buzzing, but lower down.
