my friends and I went to this bowling alley/bar/restaurant last night and they had a karaoke contest.
So I got dared to sing a song and I did!
Not only did I sing my first song (Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Deep Blue Something), but I sang another one, It’s My Life by Bon Jovi.
I didn’t really do too bad… 4 years ago

i partnered up with a friend and sang “dancing queen” (complete with dancing!) on stage in front of a room filled with about 40 people. had a blast! 4 years ago
...but I sang Alanis Morrisette “Hands Clean” and was told that I did pretty good!
Oh, and I also butchered a Bob Marley song with a friend. I stood up there giggling like an idiot with my hand in front of my mouth, not singing. I told the karaoke guy, “Any Bob song EXCEPT Buffalo Soldier,” and I guess he just heard “Buffalo Soldier”. Ugh. 4 years ago
I used to do this quite a bit, just to show a person didn’t have to be liquored up, and could sing well. I would try to challenge myself by picking a variety of songs.
But let me assure you, dear reader, you don’t HAVE to sing well! Karaoke is not really about show-stopping performances. I found if a person can motivate and involve the crowd, and generally express a hearty “I’m having a great time, have a great time with me, too!” well, that’s all you really need.

Well, it wasn’t exactly karaoke, but I sang “The Worst Pies in London” and “Wait” (both from Sweeney Todd) with an accompaniment CD for my family. Works for me. 5 years ago
If you’re a guy, I don’t recommend singing Fiona Apple’s “Criminal” 5 years ago
