My brother-in-law called my wife last night and said "I have three words for you. NEW. STARAOKE. BOOKS."

So we had to go, of course. Here are three songs that weren't in the book last time I went:

"Is She Really Going Out With Him?" in the style of Joe Jackson - one they certainly SHOULD have had, so I'm glad they did. I'm also glad I chose this one first as everybody wanted to do it
"I Don't Wanna Fall In Love" in the style (ha) of Jane Childs - no, I can't REALLY sing this high. But I was a lot closer than I thought I'd be!
"Blue Monday" in the style of New Order - good for standing around a lot, but not as much fun for standing around as "Cars"

Blue Monday. Sweet choice. I cannot give enough love to New Order. That reminds me to put the New Order concert I downloaded awhile ago onto my iPod. Nobody cut it up so it is one big, looong file but cool nonetheless.

My friend used to run Staraoke 5 nights a week at different bars. She had a couple of groupies that went to EVERY show. Strange people.

Anyway, one night she put together new books, brought them out, and set them up as usual. My friend and I got the bright idea to 'break' some of the new books in for everyone. So there we are off in the corner, dripping beer and crinkling the pages. She sees us and runs over asking what we were doing. We told her that we were breaking in the new books for her and she stood there with a stunned look on her face. The best part was that she missed the end of the song and her cue to come on causing about 15 seconds of dead space.

It was also our goal every night to cause her to miss her cue and create dead space. Ahhh, the good old days.

God bless the men of 2nd Bn, 127th Inf, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army Nat'l Guard...good luck, and come home soon.

Since the end of my hosting gig (lousy work hours...mumble grumble grumble), I've really missed these...welcome back, snippets of CRZ's life.

Really? Almost every joint I go to has had that, and I swear I'm the only one who does it.

Resurrecting a dead thread. Sue me.

At Joy Asia Marlborough MA karaoke night, I bellowed "I Want To Know What Love Is" in the style of a creaky Foreigner. I later followed that up with the Spandeau Ballet favorite "True".

The star of the night was the "Bosom Buddies" era Telma Hopkins looking woman who did "The Girl From Ipanema" the way it was meant to be done (half in... Portuguese?).

And Angelo, the octogenarian who always sings Dean Martin was a hit as usual.

Spandau Ballet? Great choice. One hit wonders always get great reactions at the karaoke place I occasionally frequent. I always do "Bust A Move" from Young MC and "Baby Got Back" from Sir Mix-a-lot.

Out of curiosity...what exactly is the difference between karaoke and "Staraoke"? The fact you can get your performance taped? A/V effects? The hosts? The musical choices?

That's what Arzu calls it.

There was a bar in Syracuse I used to hit when I would visit my brother. The regulars knew him and got to know me some through nothing but performance. My second visit to this place, I went to take the mic and clearly heard a guy say "Oh, that's Patrick's brother. I hope he's doing 'The Humpty Dance' again."

Well, I had to then...

I've said it before and I'll say it again. No one...and I mean no one...can top my "Bust a Move" karaoke.

The Goon has seen it. He'd back me up.

And Brian...I've been known to break out the Hump every know and then as well.

This tie is very reflective. It's also fraying in a few places because it's just too easy for it to catch on things....like my cuticles (owch). Once again it's a WEMBLEY MADE IN U.S.
