Here are the 18 songs I sang at karaoke in the month of June

In terms of quantity, this definitely doesn’t top the 45 songs I sang in May, but it was still a good month:

  1. Hounds of Love – The Futureheads
  2. Supersoaker – Kings of Leon
  3. Take Me Out – Franz Ferdinand
  4. Love Will Tear Us Apart – Joy Division
  5. Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again – The Angels
  6. Too Much Time on My Hands – Styx
  7. Reflektor – Arcade Fire
  8. Silly Love Songs – Wings
  9. Real Wild Child – Iggy Pop
  10. You Don’t Know How It Feels – Tom Petty
  11. Let Me Go – Cake
  12. Ruby Don’t Take Your Love to Town – Kenny Rogers
  13. I’m Sticking with You – The Velvet Underground
  14. Conquest – The White Stripes
  15. Country Girl – Primal Scream
  16. Dancing in the Moonlight – Thin Lizzy
  17. Baby, I Love You – Ramones
  18. Love Stinks – J. Geils Band

And the lesson remains the same: karaoke is super fun, the karaoke scene here in SF is pretty killer, and you can sing a wide variety of cool songs if you want.

(I like going to DJ Purple on Tuesdays at Tupelo in North Beach and Thursdays at Slate here in the Mission, KJ Paul on Saturdays at SoMa StrEat Food Park sometimes, and Roger Niner at Butter on Sundays. How bout you?) (Oh and I sang “Ruby Don’t Take Your Love to Town” at this awesome dive in Santa Monica called the Gaslite.)

    Impressed with the quantity and quality. I think I only did three. Cry to Me – The Rolling Stones / If You Had My Love – Jennifer Lopez / Hangin’ On The Telephone – Blondie

    Allan, you know that Hounds of Love is a Kate Bush song, right? That being said, IMHO, the Futureheads version is transformative and far, FAR better than the original.

    Sorry to be a nitpicky music nerd.

      Yeah but I didn’t sing the Kate Bush version, I sang the Futureheads version.

      Good lord, I’ve seen a lot of bad posts on this site but claiming that shitty cover, any cover, is better than the original has made me lose faith in/humanity (and it’s your fault).

      • Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable says:

        Are you kidding? There are shitloads of covers that are better than the originals.
