Have you ever performed in a karaoke bar?

If so, what song do you like to perform? (Or what song did you perform?)

I think this is about my speed.

... but I'm not likely to ever pick up a microphone and belt one out.

Can’t sing. Won’t sing. Nobody wants to hear that, including me. I’m fine with this.

For the purpose of this discussion... I'd say yes. It's in public (even if among colleagues) so that does require some nerve or talent.

The other bartender and I had to drink in order to preserve our sanity.

11. Only because karaoke came

to our bar in the tiny town I lived in. We were having a Hallowe'en party and the bar owner hired some guy to come and do a karaoke show thing. It was lots of fun because we were all involved in groups and being really silly. Otherwise, I'll pass.

37. Yeah... only for laughs. I totally get it.

Although I've seen some very talented singers who take it very seriously.

Oddly enough, even the talentless hacks are fun (even if it makes me wince and grimace) as long as I can see that they're having a good time and giving it their best shot.

17. Yes ... many, many times ...

My favorites are probably Prince - Kiss (yeah, I can do that falsetto) and INXS - Need You Tonight (much more my natural range) ... but I've done at least a couple dozen other songs, alone and with friends or my ex-wife.

I can rock the hizzy ...

It's easier to do it sober. Switching from Muppet voice to Muppet voice can be tricky...

30. Yes, and though saying I was "pretty good" might be a stretch. Dylan fan here...





I'd usually warm up with a short one, though:



Never cared much for any of the covers.

Others are “Miss Chatelaine” KD Lang, “Wonder” Natalie Merchant, “Dreams” Stevie Nicks, “Empty Arms” Stevie Ray Vaughan.

... I have never heard them performed as karaoke before. I'll have to check the songbook list and maybe get one of my brave girlfriends to try.

36. Good answer! 👍 ⭐

I also have a reasonable price to publicly "humiliate" myself. I'm not above having my friends laugh at me (and with me) for some nachos, poppers, onion-rings, and few free drinks and ride home.

38. Often

Janis Joplin - Mercedes Benz.
Nirvana - Where did you sleep last night?
Pat Benetar - Hit me with your best shot.
Amy Winehouse - Rehab

Among others...

On edit: First time I ever sang karaoke was after moving to WA. Double shot of Tequila gets you loose enough to give it a go!

Just get the rest of the room singing with you and nobody will know whether you sing well or not.
