Karaoke Questions Revisited...
I love the answers you've being giving to the questions "What song am I singing in Karaoke in this photo?" and "What song do/would you like to sing in Karaoke?"
Rachel would sing 'Funky Town, and along with Sam guessed Blue Moon, (which IS from the same communal era of our lives as 'the song'!) Sam also guessed U2 'With or Without You', or something from Coldplay's latest album - you were all most tasteful in your guessing, I must say!
Martin would sing Mr Oizo's 'Flatbeat. Caro would sing jamiroquai's 'Space Cowboy' or Tracy Chapman's 'Sorry', and guessed ABBA 'The Winner Takes it All', or The Beatles 'Let it Be' (which I did sing once in an audition for Les Miserables...an octave too high??!! My family and I laughed long and loud about that! Reminiscent of laughing for about an hour with Tom after failing my driving test for the __ time!!)
Bens guessed 'Sweet Child of Mine'. Mum sang 'Santa baby, hurry down the chimney tonight...', and guessed 'Catch a Falling Star', and Elvis' 'Love Me Tender, Love Me True', slightly out of tune (thanks Mum!).
I've been asked to give you A CLUE! (Remember Ab Fab??!! I LOVE that moment!)
Clue #1 - that's my good friend Laurel in the foreground - she may well remember what I was singing! She sang 'Video Killed the Radio Star'.
Clue #2 -The song I'm singing in this pic has 'the selfsame words and tune' (Shakespeare, in Macbeth), (well, selfsame TUNE, at least) to a shocking little number performed at Forster SUFM's summer 1988/9 concert (along with the Pharoahs and the Martyrs) in which April, Karina, Didy, Kath and I danced around Dave, clad in a psychedelic fluorescent helmet, singing
You make me misbehave..."
Rosemary Davies was aghast, horrified, outraged, and the bizarre thing was that I, the author, in my teen naivite (sp?), was somehow oblivious to the sexual overtones of our performance. I remember we were truly surprised at Rosie's response. A few more words for you...
"...You do everything
C'mon stunned Dave
I wanna be your slave..."
Initially, when I thought of this clue, I thought 'How nice - a lullaby for my dear little nephew David'. Maybe not.
SO, what would you sing, and what did I sing??!! I look forward to Karaoking with you some day!!!!!
