phewww we made it to Friday!

storm Nemo is on the way but in the mean time lets try and have some fun. when I lived at home I loved to go to karaoke with my sis and a few friends. it was a small place and we usually were the only ones funny...what song would you sing? a love song? a rock anthem? maybe a disney tune?

My go to song is Me and Bobby McGee by Janis Joplin and I'll usually do atleast one P!nk song and as a duet we have had fun doing A Whole New World- Disney's Aladdin.

Who's up? Rock on!!!

I did this in the hospital on a Friday night. Even though it broke one of my longest held beliefs: that karaoke without alcohol should be illegal. I did it. Made a fool of myself & sang Girls just wanna have fun - cyndi lauper.

Rugger -

"to be honest i had to look some of em up!"

Way to make me feel old!!!
I'll just go sit in my rocking chair & get back to knitting my doilies.

That was all sarcasm. lol. How young are you? None of the songs were real old.

ooooh i miss karaoke! it's been so long! my go to is bohemian rhapsody or under the sea or pretty much any disney song. i've never actually sang alone though, b/c i never drink so i have to sing with someone to get up the nerve lol.

fun times you all have some excellent song selections!

Kate_Te replied to Kate_Te's response:
I'm sorry Rugger,
My coment above was supposed to be funny, but I've thought about it (because obsessing is what I do) and realized it could be taken as mean. It wasn't meant that way, please accept my apology if you were in any way offended.
rugger1369 replied to Kate_Te's response:

besmith75 replied to rugger1369's response:'s my karaoke story for you. I can't sing. I absolutely cannot sing. When my oldest son was little...I was singing to him and he actually asked me to stop. night when I was out with my friends I lost a bet and was forced to do it. I did 'Cleaning Out My Closet' by Eminem and got a standing ovation. That was my first...only...and last karaoke experience.
