|KaraokeJournal: cup of tea

Took a break from today's nonstop writing charge by heading over to Chopsticks II. Very dead night until shortly before I left, which is fine, because I was kind of going out on a limb with repertoire:|
"Coat of Many Colors": Ugh. Top of my range, and not cut out for me--it needs somebody with a feathery voice like Dolly's, or it just doesn't work.
"Right Said Fred": Not the band, the song, by Bernard Cribbins, from 1962--a little dialect-novelty song about three guys completely failing to move a piano. The sort of song I'm happy to sing to three people plus the KJ.
"I Can't Get Next to You": Actually went decently (a couple came up and dirty-danced), despite the fact that it was the Temptations version and I didn't bother with the high & low voices, just roared the whole thing, and kept confusing the phrasing with the Al Green version that I know much better. Probably not a repeater, though.
"Harper Valley P.T.A.": Asked myself if I should sing it low or high. Remembered that it has some truck driver's gear changes in it, and opted for low. Unwise.
