Covering two Fridays here, since I neglected to do it last time.
July 31st was a short night with a long rotation, so I only got two songs in. To the best of my recollection, these were:
- Bad Moon Rising — Creedence Clearwater Revival
- Back in the USSR — The Beatles
August 7th had some drama. A rare visit from Beth somehow coincided with a rare visit from Matt (who also brought along Autumn, to my considerable surprise.) While this failed to result in the expected Earth-shattering Kaboom! there was almost certainly some personal discomfort on the part of one or all parties. Both wandered off before the end of the show. Highlights of that experience were when Beth and I got together for a half-passable rendition of the apparently obscure Murray Head song One Night in Bangkok, and when Gerald’s rendition of Baby Got Back somehow broke Autumn’s mind. Matt actually briefly considered singing, the first time on record.
As far as I can recall, these are the songs I did in the order I did them:
- Down on the Corner — Creedence Clearwater Revival
- Stacy’s Mom — Fountains of Wayne
- One Night in Bangkok — Murray Head
- Jesus He Knows Me — Genesis
- Everlong — Foo Fighters
I really need to bring a notebook the next time so as I can actually write it down.
Anyway, toward the end a verbal altercation broke out between one of the singers and a guy who was hassling his girlfriend. Bar staff escorted the troublemaker out, but that was pretty much the end of the night. *sigh*
Good thing the universe didn’t go….. that’s where I keep all of my stuff.
I left before Matt could start needling me. Both Eric and I got a really bad vibe. So, for this week, and this week only, we are Saviors of the Universe. :D
Oh, and Bob, could you please explain to your Dad why I left? He seemed to be the only person confused as to why Eric and I left. Secondly, I’m sorry about how things landed — Friday was finally looking up when we got to Karaoke, and then it all went kersplatt.
