Ever done it? Do it every week? Avoid it like the plague? What’s your song of choice? I did under pressure w/ my mate and felt like I NAILED IT! Probably sounded like a cat in heat, tho.
What did you sing?
Under Pressure by David Bowie/Queen. I had never done it before, but given the right crowd and the right inebriation is was quite fun.
I have only done it twice but times very drunk obviously.
Guns N Roses - Paradise City and Beastie Boys - Fight for your right. Beastie boys was pretty fun actually.
Yeah, tend to fancy having a go when presented with the opportunity.
Jerry Lee Lewis - Great Balls of Fire
Underworld - Born Slippy (Nuxx)
EMF - Unbelievable
Jimi Hendrix - Crosstown Traffic
Sang I’m Too Sexy with my mate on Chinese New Year with and Elvis impersonator (to a sold out audience).
Cleared out a pub destroying Enjoy The Silence with a different mate years and years ago.
Jackie Wilson ‘Reet Petite’ for me every time. Or Band Aid on my own.
We also tried Brass Monkey. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but once we got up there, it fell apart quickly!
I tend to do Sound & Vision or Common People - my friends tend to enjoy it
I’ve ended up at a karaoke bar after our last two work Christmas parties. The first year I sang Mr Blue Sky by ELO; the second year I sang Gangsta’s Paradise by Coolio. Which another DiSer described as the whitest thing he’d ever heard of. Fuck him, I nailed it.
Common People would be fun. It’s a looong song, and builds nicely. Perfect for drunken howling!
Haha yeah, the length was a bit of an issue obviously it’s quite wordy. But the crowd were on my side so it went down a storm!
Did a duet of Jeff Buckley’s Grace (not the whole record) at a pub in my first year of Uni in a tiny village outside of Hull. After we’d finished the DJ said to ‘do something we know’ next time. I called him a dickhead for having it down as a choice in the first place.
Obviously we completely butchered the song.
Mary J Blige’s own performances of No More Drama are second only to my own
i’m sure, it being a perfect performance, that you also pay homage to her moves in kneehigh boots?
Teenage Dirtbag by Wheatus is undisputadly the best karaoke tune, always goes down a storm.
Love karaoke. My go to songs are:
Westlife - Flying Without Wings
Ronan Keating - When You Say Nothing At All
Jay-Z - 99 Problems
Eminem - Sing For The Moment
Westlife - Uptown Girl
Embrace - Gravity
Is there any karaoke places in Cambridge?
This in Cottingham? The DJs should know better!
It was indeed! Think it was The Railway.
