Yes, I'm a giant Karaoke nerd. I live for it. I love it. Shoot me. I'm not going to say I'm a fabulous singer but I've had my fair share of compliments. :) I take Karaoke very seriously. I love singing fun, upbeat songs that gets the crowd going. There's nothing worse than some asshole singing another sad-ass country song for the 5th time in the same night. I can't stand it. I don't listen to country but being a Texan, I can respect it. I just hate when people sing depressing material.
Luckily for me, my friend Gabe (Megan's husband) is also a fan of Karaoke. My partner in crime. It's not uncommon to see us belting out Bohemian Rhapsody at the top of our lungs and headbanging at precisely the right moment. Gabe don't give a shit and that's why I love him. He's a MUCH better singer than me. He's the best. :) We went out last friday to Canary Hut and sang our little hearts out to Everything She Wants by George Micheals. I love that song! The only downfall from that place is having to wait hours and hours before you can sing again so I took it upon myself to reserve a private karaoke room at the Highball. This place is badass. They have several private rooms and I booked the psychodelic Trip room that holds 8 people max. I'm so excited!!! Taylor, Megan and Dominique are coming with their husbears and Leslie is coming as my date. :) I went there once before for the Please Hang Up and Try Again wrap party and it was so much fun! They have a call button in every room for your waiter. They have a full bar and menu. The best part about this place is the song list. They really take pride in this and even take suggestions from the public on their website. PLUS they have an app with their entire song list and you can save your favorites. Genius! Here's my list so far...
"Give It to Me Baby" by Rick James
"Boogie Oogie Oogie" by Taste of Honey
"Brass in Pocket" by The Pretenders
"Brand New Key" by Melanie
"I Can't Wait" by Nu Shooz
"Let's Make Love and Listen to Death from Above" by CSS

"Shoop" by Salt -n- Pepa
"Heart of Glass" by Blondie
"Goodbye Horses" by Q Lazarus
