You put the Boom Boom into my Heart

posted be Melissa Baumgart
The Baumgart house has been rocking the karaoke.  I have to say a huge Thank You to our friend, Kenny, for loaning us the karaoke machine.  It has been so fun to sing and not be all in front of people, or at a bar every night.  And yes, I have karaoke'd everyday since December 1st!  I like finding songs that are "in my range", if I can even say I have one.  It's very humorous how good one can think they sound singing along to the stereo, and then hear the harsh slap of reality when their voice is piped through a mic for all to hear.  Loudly.

Some of my personal favorites thus far have been:

Wake Me Up (Before You Go Go) by Wham - I think song this might have been my all time high score of 96!  There are so many, songs that is, not high scores, that it's hard to remember.
Summer of '69 by Brayn Adams
Paint it Black by the Rolling Stones
Edelwiess by Julie Andrews
Living on a Prayer by Bon Jovi
Live to Tell by Madonna
It Ain't Over Til It's Over by Lenny Kravitz

Some songs I am real bad at:

Saving All My Love For You by Whitney Houston
Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree by Tony Orlando
Endless Love by Diana Ross and Lionel Ritchie
(I know there are more, I am probably just blocking them out)

One not to sing with kids around:

My Name Is by Eminem (Have you ever heard those lyrics, whoa!  This karaoke is does not include the "clean" version apparently.  And we learned this the hard way, with kids present.  Ooops.)

Keep on Rocking,

The first karaoke I did was at a holiday party for a job a few years ago, where a friend begged me to kick things off. Terrifying and exhilarating - but can *definitely* see the enjoyment of singing in your own living room. Does it have Love Potion No. 9? That one is fun to sing to. And (I believe) kid friendly! :)

Were there a lot of people watching you? That part scares me! I'll have to see if ours has that song, and if I remember how it goes :)
