Super Karaoke Challenge Polling Results

In Japan karaoke isn't an option nor something you choose to do for fun, it's more like the weather, part of a necessary cycle. You may experience droughts as we have for the past 2 months, where karaoke does not strike... however in this time a certain electricity builds up until it can no longer be retained. Last night was such a night.

Several weeks ago I took some requests and last night took an all-star crew down to our local "Joy Joy" 24-hour all-you-can-drink karaoke shop where we proceeded to produce songs of the most dubious quality.
5 songs were requested and of these I'm sorry to say that Mr. Frog's and Mr. Floyd's were not available for play.
Yukiko's request for the theme song to "GeGeGe no Kitaro" was not overlooked however as she was not present last night and specifically requested we sing it together, I was spared having to sing in Japanese.
That leaves Rod Stewart's Hot Legs with a whopping 3 votes (as the Rafferty ladies seemed to have power-backed that candidate), and Aqua's Barbie Girl with an equally impressive 2 votes (Alexandra voted for "something funny" which meant that her vote technically encompassed all of the candidates).
Thus the as-promised-democratic-process states that the winner is a Hot Legs majority with a Barbie Girl minority............... dear God............ video coming soon.
