I bring you up to speed by telling you that we go to karaoke at a bar called - well, the bar's name isn't all that important unless you want to stalk me or my wife, and we all hope you don't. What IS important is that I PERFORM! with great regularity, so I figured I'd make a note of it here. My wife will probably do that at her blog, or here, or nowhere, who knows?

I won't bother with my previous performances of during my 2003 visits to Minneapolis - at least, not at this time. Maybe later. Who knows?

Tonight: "Party All the Time" in the style of Eddie Murphy
"Always Something There to Remind Me" in the style of Naked Eyes
"Undone the Sweater Song" by Weezer

last Thursday: "You Take Me Up" in the style of the Thompson Twins

last Tuesday: "Jungle Love" in the style of The Time
"I Wanna Be Your Lover" in the style of Prince

the previous Tuesday: "Promises, Promises" in the style of Naked Eyes
"The Look of Love" in the style of ABC

I think that's all of 'em.

As you can see, I'm no DEAN, but perhaps I am a DEAN of a slightly younger generation. Perhaps. Who knows?

I do enjoy drinking while waiting to perform karaoke, however, I must say.

There's nothing like a good night of karaoke.

A couple of months back, I blew out my vocal cords covering Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again" while babes danced on stage. Well worth it.

And I was 100% sober.

You, sir, are fantastic.

Now if you can only blast out "Bust a Move" (in the style of Young MC)...

There's too many damn country songs where my friends and I go for my liking. Although lately, we've been taking to Kamakaze-ing each other just because...well, just because it's fun.

My favorite one in particular was about two weeks ago where we all kept giving each other Xmas songs to do. The funniest part for me was for demographic reasons, one friend of mine signed me up for Sandler's "The Haunnukah Song". Good times.

But really Kamakaze-ing each other is three elements repeating themselves:

1) Person goes "aw FUCK" when they see what song it is come up

2) Person does song

3) Person gives the finger in the general vicinity of who among their friends laughed the loudest, presuming THAT was the person who signed them up.

And then we all drink and a good time is had by all.

"Always Something There to Remind Me" is an inspired choice, but then again, you can't go wrong with an 80's pop song on karaoke night.

You're a karaoke singer, CRZ?? Talk about worlds colliding. I run karaoke at a bar here on Wednesday nights. My song selection is pretty limited to 50's, 60's and 70's, with a smidge of the last two decades. Being that I'm in Texas, my singers almost ALWAYS do "You Never Call Me by My Name," and "Chattahoochie" once a week. Oh, and "Pancho and Lefty." Fucking Pancho and Lefty. Usually, I'm half in the bag by 1:30 a.m., so when latecomers try to sign up to sing, I just swear at them and bitch about how cool the place used to be two years ago.

I've got a college crowd, so the talent level is pretty mixed. Most of my favorite performers have graduated and moved on (we had a couple of institutions who could do a nasty "Bust a Move" and one guy who would always deliver "Tighten Up."

What I really hate about hip-hop going mainstream is the influx of white guys who now like to rap. I can't play any hip-hop as a buffer, without some bloodshot-eyed idiot getting up there to freestyle for his buddies.

Oh, and the most requested songs that we don't have? "Baby got Back," and "I Touch Myself." We DO, however, have "I am Woman" and "It's Raining Men," so there are ample opportunities for foolishness.

My personal faves are "The Lady is a Tramp" by Sinatra, "With or Without You" by U2, "Runaround Sue," by Bobby Darin and anything by Tom Jones. I can sing ANYTHING like Tom Jones. Anything.

Damn, now I wish we had a "The-W" karaoke gathering.

But can you throw in "Shadrach" and "Bring the Noise" during the instrumentals??

Even if not, such a contest would have only one winner.... the FANS.

You know you guys are in trouble since this thread has veered from talking about CRZ!~ to talking about Canadians singing "Bust a Move." Really.

I am guaranteed to CRUSH YOU ALL in karaoke. Remember, I is a professional! :-) Thursdays here in Titletown, USA, you can find yours truly running karaoke at a bar called Shooters. And if you're one of "my people," you get WWE entrance music as you step up to the microphone.

A lot of the older clientele prefers country, but our all-digital computerized system has a damn good variety. And I will kick all your asses on "Brandy," "Vehicle," "Minnie the Moocher," or just about any Sinatra tune.

If we're having an All-W karaoke battle royale (w/ cheese), it must take place at my bar. Sec19Row53, Stephanie, cranlsn, ScreamingHeadGuy (and now that you're only 5 hours away, CRZ), I'm looking at you...

If I lived anywhere NEAR Wisconsin, you being all JUST BRING IT I would matched by my being all OH, IT'S ALREADY BEEN BUH-ROUGHTEN! It would just be a question of which club to pull out the bag: "Sympathy For The Devil", DLR's version of "Just A Gigelo" or "It's The End of The World As We Know It" (with no teleprompter). All of which I can put to good use in league play.

I is a professional, too, y'know. (Just ask pieman)
OH, and Blanket, I own "Just A Gigolo", but we could have a Dave-off to see who get's the crowd into it more. ;-)

CRZ, if you are looking for other things to do, and I'm going on having no knowledge of what kind of music you like or if you two are even into seeing live bands, you cannot go wrong with checking out GB Leighton. They play at Bunkers in downtown MPLS every wednesday and usually about two weekends a month in the Twin Cities. Their keyboardist is one of my best friends (along with their soundman), and I've had the pleasure of running lights for them a few times. These guys are really, really good.

If I might throw my own bit of braggadocio on the mix, I do a mean "Copacabana," by Mr. Barry Manilow.

And, when the occasion calls for it, I've been known to perform any number of Johnny Cash standards.

And, like the Goon, I've got to go sober. Can't let the booze dull my dancin' feet*.

Sober, schmober! Gotta have a drink in hand, to summon the spirit of Dean Martin! (Sure, it was really apple juice and not scotch, but c'mon!)

As for "Copacabana:" my buddy says the greatest karaoke performance he's ever seen was when I did that at a downtown Titletown bar on a buddy's birthday. I borrowed the host's wireless stick mic, and did it perfect while bouncing around the whole bar, doing the whole lounge schtick with the surprised patrons.

Monitors w/ lyrics? We don't need no steenkeeng monitors w/ lyrics!

The whole bar erupted in a standing O. Awesomeness.

That is why I will CRUSH YOU ALL. :-)
