Signature Song

February 22, 2010

I was asked on Friday night, by a regular Minneapple happy hour attendee at the LookBook show, what my “signature karaoke song” is.  This after telling her I used to host a karaoke night back in Seattle.  Well, I’m not sure I have one anymore.  Have I gotten too broad in my song selections?  Have I lost my style and niche?  Let’s see…

My signature songs lately
“I Was Made to Love Her” Stevie Wonder
“When You Were Young” The Killers
“Mad About You” Belinda Carlisle
“Always Be My Baby” Mariah Carey
“I Wanna Dance With Somebody” Whitney Houston

Past Signature Songs
“Fox on the Run” The Sweet
“Cold As Ice” Foreigner
“Anything, Anything” Dramarama
“Head Over Heels” The Go Gos
“Heartbreaker” Pat Benatar
“Life on Mars” David Bowie
“Hanging on the Telephone” Blondie

Good Duet Songs
“Always” Atlantic Starr
“Young Folks” Peter Bjorn & John
“All My Life” K-Ci & JoJo (preferably a duet with Jun, my work-wife)

Songs Soon To Be Debuted
“Just Dance” Lady Gaga (as a duet – probably with Alice)
“Rock’n’Roll Suicide” David Bowie
“Weak” SWV

There are a few others to be debuted soon, but I can’t remember at the moment.  I’ll have to write them down when they come to me because that list of new songs is WAY too short!  Most of them come to me while shopping at drugstores – they always have the best music playing!  That’s where I was inspired to do the Mariah and Whitney songs.

As far as the current and past songs, I do think my list is pretty diverse, but I’m not willing to narrow it down at the moment.  Ha!

My 3-year NYC anniversary party is just around the corner, and it’s going to be a karaoke party at Hope & Anchor in my neighborhood, so I need to get my debut list ready!  Good times!
