So...what would ya sing? smile

Posted:Hey miss Tiger - fancy meeting you again so soon!! smile

The last time I did Karaoke (in Japan on business trip) I sang mostly Simon & Garfunkel - Daniel, The Boxer, Sounds of Silence and Bridge over Troubled Water.
From memory, I was also roped into a couple of Beatles songs.

Posted:Shh.... don't tell anyone but my guilty pleasure is belting our Anastacia - gotta love those power ballads biggrin

But the last one I did was 'Standing in the way of Control' - The Gossip. Don't know what it sounded like but I enjoyed singing it

Last time I was 'forced' to sing someone else chose the song for me; 'I'm just a girl' by No Doubt :blackeye:
I did it justice though smile

Posted:I used to, sorry... still love karaoke!



I remember first time was stuff like Garbage and Placebo and Radiohead. But since then I've unleashed my inner diva and prefer stuff you can REALLY belt out.

Favourites include

Lady Marmalade - (Moulin Rouge version)

What's Up - 4 Non Blonde.

Holding Out for a Hero - Bonnie Tyler

Oh So Quiet - Bjork



I leave the 'serious songs' alone because I really don't wanna ruin them. Plus strangely because I'm a Bass I find it hard to find a male song I can do as most male-songs are tenors and are beyond my key and if I transpose it down my voice goes so deep it's almost inaudible (like a reverse dog whistle). it's strange but there ya go!
