    My "go to" song is Billy Idol - Rebel Yell.

    A good finisher is Dashboard Confessional - Hands Down.

    Inbetween I'll throw in some Billy Joel, or some contemporary rock if they got it.

    I'll start off with "When you believe" Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston

    I can think of more... I do karaoke quite often.

    I'd like to see you sing "Hips don't lie" by Shakira

    I wish I can sing that. I love Shakira but sometimes she sounds like a goat.

    Back in 1978 (long before Americans had ever heard of the concept of karaoke) I used to routinely lip-sync the "Sweet Transvestite" number from The Rocky Horror Picture Show at theater cast parties. Apparently I was pretty good at it.

    But if I had to get up at a real karaoke bar nowadays and not completely embarass myself and/or my friends, I'd probably pick "Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs ...Richard Butler's is the only voice I can reliably do with any consistency.

    Although if I could find a karaoke machine with Charles Ives' "They Are There" I'd jump at the chance to sing that!

    In short, we were in the middle of the woods with a bunch of toothless potato farmers, albeit toothless tater farmers with enough disposable income to get away for a weekend to a hotel that had premium cable TV and a whirlpool in every bathtub.

    In the hotel lounge they had a karaoke DJ during happy hour. My wife discovers they've got the whole Chorus Line songbook and so, after a couple glasses of wine, gets up and does a full on Broadway belt version of "Dance 10, Looks 3" (aka, "Tits & Ass") complete with original choreography.

    ...for a bar full of toothless potato farmers!

    It was priceless.




    (edit: sorry, I meant eastern Pennsylvania)

    What i have discovered about myself from singing Karaoke is that i have a great voice for singing country music. The irony here is i hate country music with every fiber of my being. Since karaoke is about having fun, I would not hessitate to belt out any of Conway Twitty's greatest hits, but with a satirical lilt for sure.
