KaraokeJournal: nono it goes "since you went away..."
My first karaoke in MONTHS last night--up at Chopsticks III with Laura Hudson, Jacq Cohen and a late-arriving Sarah Oleksyk, along with a bunch of their friends. I sang Willie Nelson's "Cowboys Are Frequently, Secretly Fond of Each Other" (probably would've been better if I'd held off until more people were there, but let's face it, it's not really a singer's song or a high-energy number), Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home To Me" (on Brian Eno's say-so, but I'd forgotten how high it goes--had to switch to falsetto on the second line of every verse, which didn't quite work), Berlin's "The Metro" (went pretty well), and an old favorite: ABBA's "Does Your Mother Know" (for which I had dancers!).
I wanted to do Pet Shop Boys' "What Have I Done To Deserve This" as a duet, but nobody at my table knew Dusty Springfield's part.
I think I was there for close to 3 1/2 hours, which meant I was out way too late.
