I Sang Karaoke

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 593 People

    I Was Very, Very Drunk At the Time

    Done it once, never again.  My friend and some guy I had only just met that night sang a death metal (the vocals) version of YMCA.  Once you've thrashed YMCA you've pretty reached the pinnacle of karaoke; I retired that night and have never returned.

    Drunk Singing

    The worst St. Patty's Day experience I ever had involved a karaoke machine and about 18 green beers.  I ACTUALLY thought I was Mick Jagger

    It Is Super Fun.

    I love singing Karaoke. A few years ago, singing karaoke was a Friday night ritual with a group of us from work. I miss those days. Sometimes, when my husband and I visit his family, we will go to the bar and I will sing a couple songs. It's hard to get others to join in and sing...

    I'm So Ashamed!

    I totally did an awesome rendition of "Friends in Low Places" with 3 of my friends. It was so... country. Ick. And then there was this one time that these two lesbian girls dragged me up to sing "When a Man Loves a Woman" with them. I'm still trying to figure that one out...

    I'm Really Enjoying It Now...

    I just started doing karaoke last year at my women's retreat...I was so scared even to sing in front of them.  I could hardly even get through the song.  I remember it was Saturday in the Park by Chicago.  One of the women there was telling how her ex used to tell her that she...

    Only Once

    Me and my sister sang "Beer for My Horses" at my dad's company picnic. I can't really sing very well, and I have this incredible fear of being up in front of large groups of people. So once is enough.

    Singing Is Good For Your Health

    I know with myself that i can sing quite well, i enjoy singing when i'm alone. However, im too shy to show it. On the other hand, im comfortable with singing in front of others when im drunk, thats just a laugh. I love singing in general as long as  it suits my voice ...

    The local casinos all have karoke nights and its pretty popular with the 21-40 crowd. You go and pick your song, laugh and have a few drinks, dance to the good singers, talk through the bad ones. Love to go and sing because people say I have a good voice and I usually get...

    Best Time At A Bar

    Some of the best times I have evr had at a bar are when I have sang karaoke. Getting the chance to sing some of my favorite songs, listening to others sing their songs, and not caring if it sounds good or not. Always a good time with good people. What more can you ask for ?

    I have done it a few times, usually with the aid of a few bourbon and cokes. The best performance I ever did was Gold Digger, but there was one time I did Black by Pearl Jam and just brutalised it, and to make matters worse it was just after the work Christmas party so that one...

    I have many talents, but singing is not one of them. I am not exactly one of the rejects from American Idol that make you cringe, but I am far from talented. Karaoke is fun, anyway. I do love to sing, even though I know I have zero chance of scoring a record deal. With enough...

    Americans Don't Karaoke, Because They Have the Copyright.

    Copyright block the wheel of civilization.  Americans can only sing 80's or earlier song. Damn, I was just born at 80's, I didn't know English at that time. So I never sang Karaoke since I came to US. Otherwise, I will be the next American Idol, hoho
