Friday Top Five: Volume II
I can't believe I've gone all week without mentioning a very important holiday. This week is National Karaoke Week. So happy singing everybody!
Top 5 Karaoke Songs:
- Garth Brooks - "Friends In Low Places." The one time I ever actually did karaoke this is the song I sang. The funny part is I was 10 years old and it was at my aunt's wedding reception. So in front of my whole family, I stood there in my floral print dress singing about how the "whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away." How little did I know that it was a prophetic song.
- The Clash - "Should I Stay or Should I Go." Do I really need to put an explanation on this one?
- The Sugarhill Gang - "Rapper's Delight." Yes, the song goes on forever, but it's so much fun. Who can resist seeing if they can successfully navigate all the "on n on n on n on's" or the "a hip hop the hippie the hippie to the hip hip hop, a you dont stop the rock it
to the bang bang boogie, say up jumped the boogie to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat's" If the old lady in The Wedding Singer can do it, surely you can too, right?
- Whitney Houston - "I Will Always Love You." More popular for the likelihood of being able to make fun of the poor girl who's convinced she's the next American Idol singing it than for actual enjoyability.
- Anything by Abba, the Village People, or other cheesy 70's disco group. Easy to get the audience involved, best when falling down drunk. Yeah.
If anybody decides to go out and properly celebrate National Karaoke Week, make sure to document it, or at least leave a comment letting us know how it went.
