2. OK. I'm pretty sure that one is in the binder
Grab a little pencil write it on a slip and turn that one in. Will you be performing under your own name or do you use a stage name?

6. I'll be sure to do a good throat clear before the "Tin roof! Rusted!" yell.
Yee ha!

I've also been known to bust out "Give Me One Reason To Stay Here" by Tracy Chapman.

13. Whenever I'm at a karaoke bar and I get drunk enough...
I sing either "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond, "Suspicious Minds" by Elvis or "Rainy Day Women" by Bob Dylan, depending on what the crowd's like and what mood I'm in.

Dude, I would never even attempt to do songs that have that much wailing.

I mean, "Immigrant Song"?! Seriously?

You've got balls o' steel.

21. Karaoke rap can be difficult
Edited on Fri Dec-29-06 12:25 PM by Strawman
One of the best performances I've ever seen at a karaoke bar is a woman who did Rapper's Delight by the Sugarhill Gang by herself for 8 minutes or however long it is.
