This all started when I sang 45 songs in May and wanted to brag about it, but also, I just wholeheartedly want to give props to the local karaoke scene (and karaoke scenes around the world) for making me feel so good all the time. This month I sang an Ian Dury song for goodness’ sake! Can you imagine!?
- I Will Follow — U2
- Hit Me with Your Rhythm Stick — Ian Dury
- All My Friends — LCD Soundsystem
- Ape Man — The Kinks
- Leave It Alone — NOFX
- Perfect Day — Lou Reed
- Could You Be Loved — Bob Marley
- It’s Oh So Quiet — Björk
- Tubthumping — Chumbawumba
- Pompeii — Bastille
- Boots — Nancy Sinatra
- Wannabe — Spice Girls
In particular, I want to mention KJ Eileen, who, in a crazy twist, doesn’t have a website! I think she does last Fridays of the month at Bender’s and some Sundays at Maggie McGarry’s in North Beach? Anyway thanks to her I got to sing the Kinks, NOFX and Lou Reed in one 2-hour period! I couldn’t believe my luck!
Also, “Pompeii” is exactly as fun as you’d imagine. Thanks, DJ Purple!
