KaraokeJournal: sweeter to me than apple pie [Feb. 11th, 2008|09:25 pm]
collating bones
Just a quick trip to Chopsticks, truncated because there was a drunk asshole at the bar who was shouting abuse at singers he didn't like, including a 60-year-old guy who was singing Johnny Cash. 60-year-olds have the right to sing "Folsom Prison Blues" whenever and however they want, as far as I'm concerned. At least Chopsticks has a few pages of new songs in the back of the book, so I've got some stuff to do next time.

This time, I just sang the Detroit Emeralds' "Feel the Need in Me"--surprisingly doable, as mid-'70s soul goes--

--and then Amber suggested we do the Amy Winehouse/Ghostface Killah version of "You Know I'm No Good." Went decently, although the Ghost part is kind of a challenge--not just the flow, but the way that each of his verses keeps rising in intensity.
