Amateur Singing Hour


Karaoke amuses me in different ways. I’ve done it and sounded really horrible yet its fun anyways and I think everyone should try singing on stage once. Just to know the feeling of belting out a tune in front of people. I’ve been cheered on hell I’ve even been booed. Regardless I have never booed and I usually clap because its tough to get up there-especially if you are not a good singer. And trust me I’m not.

However there are certain rules you should follow. Never try a song outside your limited vocal abilities. Know the crowd and what they will tolerate.  But still don’t be afraid to go with a tune you love. There might be someone in the audience who loves it too. Oh and clapping in approval of a fellow karaoke singer is good form of course.

At some point I’ll karaoke again. I have butchered I mean sung Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash, CCR, Lynyrd Skynyrd, REO Speedway and others. Its fun to try and keep up with the machine. Some of you might even actually be good singers.
