"Did you know that karaoke is Japanese for empty orchestra? Isn't that hauntingly beautiful?" Ted (How I Met Your Mother)
So, if you've read my bucket list (things I want to do before I kick the bucket) you know that singing karaoke is one of my lifelong dreams... What could be better than standing up in front of people, holding a microphone, and belting out lyrics to a wonderfully cheesy song?
Oh dream, when will you come true? But while I'm waiting for that opportune moment-- I decided I could at least make a list of songs I could sing for karaoke... So here we go-- and suggestions are requested-- cause I know there is a lot more out there!
(Keep in mind, some of these are duets because I plan on singing with Heather-- my song soulmate)
1. Endless Love
2. Come What May
3. Total Eclipse of the Heart
4. Any song from "Grease"
5. Baby, it's Cold Outside
6. A Whole New World (or any Disney song)
7. Almost Paradise (From Footloose)
8. When I Fall in Love
9. Bohemian Rhapsody
10. Livin' On a Prayer
11. Wanna Be (Spice Girls)
12. Any great boy band classic ('Nsync, Backstreet, etc)
13. Killing Me Softly
14. Don't Stop Believing
15. You're So Vain
16. You Give Love a Bad Name
17. Son of a Preacher Man
18. Any Pat Benetar
19. Celine Dion (queen of cheese-- All by Myself-- for example)
And this list is only the beginning... What's on your karaoke list to sing?
