An update here...relief or disappointment, well it's hard to say yet. Nevertheless, without further ado...
THE WINNING SONG FOR THE SUPER KARAOKE CHALLNGE IS:
"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% .
