So here’s my song list for last Friday:
- I alone — LIVE
- My Best Friend’s Girl — The Cars
- Jeremy — Pearl Jam
- Voodoo — Godsmack
Tonight, I am planning to do Genesis’s I can’t dance as well as 3 Doors Down’s Kryptonite. The rest I will figure out as I go along.
I tend to stick with artists I can imitate, so it’s usually David Lee Roth or Bon Jovi when I’m drunk enough to actually do karaoke. Which isn’t often.
@Jal_Phoenix – I do it stone-cold sober on a weekly basis, as I think I’ve mentioned before. The really cool thing is that I can imitate all of these artists.
You should try it sober. It’s pretty awesome. Really helps with overcoming general stage fright too.
It’s not really my favorite thing. I’m tone deaf, for one, so while I have a good voice, I can’t really sing in tune with the music unless I have an accompanying voice to harmonize with. I sound worse sober because I’m thinking about these things instead of relaxing and concentrating on singing.
I don’t get stage fright. Years of being “the boss” and having to give daily speeches to up to a hundred people, many of them complete strangers, kind of cured me of that. I can get up on stage and give a speech or sing without a problem. I just don’t like sounding bad.
@Jal_Phoenix – I see. Well, that is a little different. Still, I’ve often said that I’d rather hear a tone-deaf man sing than one with no sense of rhythm.
