We're all familiar with the phenomenon. One of your friends, 99% of the time female, screams "LET'S DO KARAOKE!" With trepidation, you figure that you can get really drunk and watch people make fools of themselves.
5 Cuervo shots later, you're grabbing the microphone from a guy who, in your alcohol-fueled opinion, just mutilated "Unchained Melody".
Which brings me to this week's interactive SSTIFY: What is the best karaoke song of all time? I'm not asking what song YOU like to sing, but what is the one song that everyone in the bar sings. I mean, everyone. There's been some debate on this in some of the circles I run in*. Here are some that we came up with. Feel free to add any in the comments box:
First on the playlist:
I chose the scene from Beautiful Girls because it represents the essence of what I'm trying to do here. That, and Uma Thurman is hot. At the very least, if you aren't singing the "bah bah BAHHH" part, you have no soul.
A quick YouTube search for this song gave me more karaoke versions than the actual version. Coincidence? I think not.
Thirdly, this was offered up:
Have a good weekend everyone!
* Look! I made a running reference!
