    I occasionally sing karaoke. [img]redface.gif[/img] I've never done any VH 'cause I'm afraid I'd butcher it. I once tried to do Def Lep's "Love Bites," but it got really ugly.

    So I sing one of these:

    "Straight Up" by Paula Abdul (I wanted to be her when I was like 10)

    "Life's Been Good," Joe Walsh (during the looong instrumental break, you can go get a drink)

    "Burning Down The House," Talking Heads (believe me, I need the words in front of me)

    I sang Beautiful Girls with my sister, sister-in-law, and her friend on backround vocals. It wasn't too ugly...

    I did 'Jump' and 'Smokin In The Boys Room' Crue version. Smokin went pretty good [img]smile.gif[/img] but Jump was kinda brutal [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    I only did it once. It was Chris Isaak's weepy ass love song. Not tooo crazy about the song, but I MACKED it. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] I sing a pretty damn good Elvis "that's all right Mama" in the shower though, and SRV's life by the drop.

    I haven't done karaoke in years, but used to get up on stage now and then.

    I think my favorite to do is Just a Giggolo/I Ain't Got Nobody. You can really let it rip on that one, which sometimes wakes up the crowd a bit. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Jump is cool, but not when I'm drunk. Ah yes, a memorable moment with that one. This chick got up on stage with me, but was in fear for her life when I started swinging the mic around during the solo. I'd forgotten that I'm not a flexible guy, and was trying to do Dave's kicks... and I had to jump off stage with the drum riser splits, too. Did I mention this was in a country bar? Nobody liked it much, expect for this big biker dude in the back. He was throwing his fist in the air and had a big'ole grin on his face the whole time. [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    Warrant, Poison, Great White... those are some of my favorites. I might have to go find a karaoke bar this weekend!

    I've never got up the nerve to do this yet, but I think I could do okay with "Desperado"

    I used to whip out a pretty mean "Suspicious Minds" by Elvis back in the old days.

    Side note: Back in the late 80's I went to a party where a local band was playing. About 40 people crammed into a hot, sweaty attic but the band was smokin! Anyways, people were being pulled to the mic to do some songs and my buddy tells me I should go. I said the only thing I would sing is You Really Got Me. About 10 minutes later, the lead guitar player hollers out, "Hey, anybody know the words to You Really Got Me?" Badaboom badabing, I'm up at the mic belting it out like there's no tomorrow. One of my favorite college memories and the closest I'll probably ever get to an actual rock n' roll fantasy come true.

    You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC (I used to have Brian Johnson down to the T) and Somebody to Love by Jefferson Airplane.

    I once butchered Jump. NOT pretty.
    I'm one of those crazies on your block.

    I was all psyched up to belt out "Beautiful Girls" one night but as the dj started the cd, it started skipping and I had to leave, dejected. To make matters worse, the audience booed ME!

    What'd I do to get booed?

    I stopped at a "Make your own tape" store one time in Branson, MO and did the whole "Just A Gigalo/IAGN" medley. I actually had people listening outside my booth who were dancing and clapping.

    Only after I left did I realize those people were idiot savants.

    Denied, yet again.
