sing ... sing a song ...

I really need a karaoke night out — drinking and singing with good friends, having a fun time and belting out tune after tune.

For the past few days, I've been hearing great songs and singing along to them at home. I've had some stuck in my head, shifting back and forth between a few different tunes.

The only problem: I've lost my karaoke pack.

Yep, all the friends that used to go with me to hit the karaoke joints with astonishing regularity aren't or can't do the karaoke thing anymore. Most of them have moved stateside. Others don't go out much anymore because they are married and have children.

Also, I'm not as social as I used to be. Most of the people I hang out with outside of work are poker buddies — not your typical karaoke folks.

I guess I always could go out by myself to some karaoke bar and just sing among strangers. Hell, it just may come down to that. Because I have a need to sing.

Gotta get those poker buddies out and shake things up a bit! Might have to trick them into it... "say, I know this cool new place to play poker!" something like that?

Strumpet said...

Deezy....I say me and you karaoke to Young MC. I loved the song Bust A Move then...and I still love it today. I'll sing the chick parts. And Try A Little Tenderness......this is Otis...I love Otis. If you've never seen Pretty in should...great scene with this tune in that flick.

However...Mr. Green, I can sing Sir Psycho Sexy like you've never heard it before. It's my favourite song in all the world. A most EXCELLENT choice. Heh, heh. He da man. He da man. He da man!

I used to date a karaoke freak (and I say freak because he used to do it ALL the time and he knew where ALL the karaoke places were anywhere in Queens and Manhattan and oh by the way? He had props. Told you - freak!).
