So, I've only recently branched into singing, but I can't seem to find a warm-up song that really works for me.

I mean, generally, I've been doing Swing Life Away and Voices Off Camera: both my Rise Against (They're closest to my style). They help a bit with keeping me from straining my voice early, but they fail to get me prepped with my pitches.

Advice?

My singing experience/skills are pretty low, but basically I use a piano to do basic warm up scales starting 1 octave below middle C (sometimes lower) and moving outward in both directions from there.

A google or youtube search will probably give you plenty of tips as well.

The advice I was given by a professional singing teacher was to warm up with exercises, not songs. Because songs require you to manipulate your voice to reach notes a long way away from each other, it's best not to start singing songs until your voice is already warmed up or else you could do a lot more harm than good.

Just check out youtube and you'll find a plethora of great warm up exercises.
