Singin’ a Song or Two

November 10, 2006 at 5:32 am

Tomorrow night is karaoke night at the Backstage, which means I need to butch up on some songs! Some potentials:

* Neil Diamond – Kentucky Woman Cracklin’ Rosie
* Scissor Sisters – Take Your Mama Out
* Talking Heads – Wild Wild Life
* Some Tom Petty Song (why haven’t I thought of this before?)
* The Boss (a given)
* Maybe some Elton John
* Guns N’ Roses – NIGHT TRAIN!!

I guess in my dream fantasy land, where you could karaoke to any song, I would pick these:

* Roky Erickson – 2 Headed Dog
* Turbonegro – Get it On
* The Stooges – Loose
* Wire – Map Ref, Three Girl Rhumba
* Southern Culture on the Skids – Banana Pudding, Mojo Box
* The Smiths – Cemetry Gates, a bajillion others
* Guided By Voices – Tractor Rape Chain, Things That I Will Keep, I Am a Tree
* Robert Pollard – Dancing Girls and Dancing Men
* Robyn Hitchcock – Oceanside, Arms of Love
* Pavement – Range Life
* The New Pornographers – Sing Me Spanish Techno
* James – Born of Frustration
* Garageland – Beelines to Heaven
* Elton John – Country Comfort
* Devo – Uncontrollable Urge, Mongoloid, Be Stiff, Big Mess
* Captain Beefheart – Party of Special Things to Do (only so I can randomly say “the camel wore a nighty!” throughout)
* Every other song ever written

Did you know I’ve never sang karaoke to an REM song? Did you know the last song I sang karaoke to was Poison’s “Talk Dirty to Me,” and that Alex lifted me up and we almost fell into the speaker/giant TV? Did you know that I’m in love? I’m in love with FUN.
