SUPER KARAOKE CHALLENGE!!!! *Addendum: Voting Time Extension*

An update here...relief or disappointment, well it's hard to say yet. Nevertheless, without further ado...


"Fever" by Peggy Lee

Yup, a big dose of sometimes hot, sometimes cold, sore throat and a day off work in which I stayed in bed drinking tea. Regardless of your stance on the talent, there is no song, no video, no performance to speak of this weekend, as I didn't have the voice to speak of it with, let along sing with. Anyway, there is no ginger (that apparently makes sense in Japanese), so looking on the bright side there's one more week for y'all to get your votes in. Hope you're reading the fine print!


The following is the initial challenge post:


I'm not going to make any promises here, but there are some plans in the works for this year's first karaoke outing (it's almost embarassing that we haven't done karaoke at all in January), and this is your chance to make a request! That's right, if you post a comment on this page requesting a song you'd like me to sing, there's a chance* that I will perform it and record it for you and post it on this site sometime in February.

For the time being I'm going to say that I maintain complete control over the final decision, with the sidenote that I aim to please and I'll try to adhere to democratic principles.
Caveat elector: No quality guaranteed, in fact you should count on the song being almost unlistenable but I'll try* to include some entertaining* photos and videos to make the time pass.
So please make your requests before this weekend, and please be kind.


* includes most values between 0.0 - 14.9% .

I knew you would know who it was Tara.
Rod is still my favorite, so anything by him would be good. But it would be quite amusing to hear Ian do "Hot Legs"

Alexandra said...

Hah I don't really care what you sing as long as it's funny!


your friends in Japan said...

Hahaha, I will PERSONALLY see to it that Ian sings Hot Legs! And Alexandra, I guarantee that it will be funny. So there you go! Two requests in one!

So, if I understand correctly, people were supposed to vote on a song for EE to sing. Hmmmm...I may have missed this Karaoke session, but for the next one, I vote for 'It's Not Easy Being Green' by Kermit the Frog. My fave!
