Best karaoke song...
« on: 08 June 2018, 19:38:00 »

It's karaoke night here, and assuming I have drunk enough to have no shame by 8pm, I might have a bash at Rhinestone Cowboy...

That said, this is a touch clichéd as every drunken mong can make a reasonable stab at it... Even me :D

My alternative idea is Aqua Barbie Girl done as a dry monologue done Bill Nighy stylee :o

So, any other ideas, that might spare me from abject humiliation... I'm here for a fortnight, feel free to share ;)

Am about six pints into the evening if that helps...

American pie - Don Mclean
about 10 mins long  ;D
I sang it once at a Karaoke (thanks to my tw@ mates for nominating me)
I "won"  a bottle of fizz

well ......

 the organizer said "i'll give you this bottle if you promise NOT to sing again "

but a win is a win right  :y

Sounds serious. Probably down to dehydration.

My last Karoke attempt was Ernie. Its surprisingly difficult when sober.  But I did manage to get the pub to join in with the chorus lines.

This brings back very bad memories of the time a mate of mine tried to sing Cotton Eye Joe in a bar in Rhodes.  :-X

I pretended I didn't know him for the rest of the evening. ::)

I had pints and pints of that stuff at a music festival the weekend before last. Lovely. :-*

No after effects. Sure would have remembered it if there were as I was camping, with one loo per eleventy million punters. ;D

You could always try Rhinestone Cowboy in the style of Aqua......
Currently in an Irish bar with live music... The singer has just interspersed U2 With or Without you with lyric bombs from Lady Gaga, Aqua and Katy Perry :o so I guess anything really is possible  :D

Not at all offisher :D

Will stop drinking three days before I head back to be on the safe side...  ;)

Am eating three squares a day too ;)

Besides, in my limited defence, I don't drink much as a rule, but if the opportunity presents and I am in the mood, then I get stuck in... :D

I have my next lined up in a few weeks, then one in Autumn booked (but not flights yet), and next summer's has deposit down. I like to know I always have another one "in the bag" before I get home :)

This one being a villa holiday means I can't get slaughtered, as have to drive to restaurants in the evening.
