Derek and the Dominos – “Layla”
Another fun night of karaoke last night…this night much more low key than the last. There was a guy who sang a few songs over the course of the night, who had a pretty strong voice, and chose this song. Guys, if you’ve got a strong voice that has decent range, sing “Layla”! It’s a killer tune that’s not too obvious, that people can sing along to, and it sounds majorly impressive if you just give it a little power! (*Note: Another bit of advice – do NOT sing “Livin’ La Vida Loca”)
Bonnie Raitt – “Something To Talk About”
I’m overtired and in a silly mood so I’ve decided to start a new type of post. “Great Call For Karaoke” will be just what it sounds like. Let’s see if I actually stick with it…there’s a chance this could be fun if I do. Something tells me I’m going to be attending many Saturday night karaoke nights this off-season. Some will be fun, others…not so much. Tonight was a fun one! Someone got up and did this tune tonight, and it’s one I’ve actually done before. It’s totally unexpected to pull out some Bonnie Raitt, but when you do, people are psyched. This song is a little suggestive, and fun for the crowd to sing along to…easy-ish to sing. Watch out for the key change!
