Intermission: Karaoke!

Blogathon is going to have a new challenge: Videotape yourself singing karaoke. Because I'm on a caffeine high and have the sudden urge to embarrass myself, I'm going to let you guys suggest what I should sing.

Key word: suggest. If you all vote for some horrible song to annoy me, I have veto power =P

I have Rock Band 2 for Wii, which has a song list here. Here are additional songs I've downloaded:

All The Small Things - Blink 182
Buddy Holly - Weezer
Call Me When You're Sober - Evanescence
Dirty Little Secret - All American Rejects
Don't Speak - No Doubt
Hella Good - No Doubt
Hysteria - Muse
Just a Girl - No Doubt
More Than A Feeling - Boston
My Sharona - The Knack
Space Man - The Killers
Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand
The Kill - 30 Seconds to Mars
This Ain't a Scene It's an Arms Race - Fall Out Boy

So, any requests?

*I should have made this more clear: Your only choices are the Rock Band songs. Sorry guys. I will turn off the game's vocals, though.

  1. As an unabashed metal fan, I am required by law to suggest Peace Sells, Painkiller, or Battery. official request is for American Woman.

  2. My top 3, based in order of hilarity:

    "Give it Away" - Red Hot Chili Peppers
    "Any Way You Want It" - Journey
    "Hungry Like the Wolf" - Duran Duran.

    Because all of these would be hilarious, no matter what.

  3. Forgive me if I make a non-embarrassing (and topical suggestion), namely anything by Bad Religion, but especially:

    American Jesus
    Atheist Peace
    Flat Earth Society
    I Want to Conquer the World

    Or anything by Tim Minchin...

    The don't take but a minute to learn (but they will get stuck in your head). :)

  4. Ok, my suggestions on twitter have been shot down for the most my new suggestion is "alive" pearl jam

  5. Jitterbug by WHAM!

  6. I should have made a note: NO METAL! Sorry Veritas =P

    Maybe I'll do favorite 5 of your suggestions and see which one come out the best, haha

    Suggested on twitter: Don't Speak, Spirit in the Sky (har), Testify (double har)

  7. See above edit: I'm only doing Rock Band 2 songs and the songs listed here. Sorry guys!

  8. Hey, I chose a classic rock song for my official nominee (It's not my fault your music taste is terrible, anyway!).

  9. Ooo, Hungry Like the Wolf. I'm a Duranie.

  10. @ Yellow Hat Guy

    You would be.

    I say Spoonman.

  11. I feel bad for saying terrible without putting in a tongue-in-cheek smiley. Pretend it's there.

  12. Already requested it on Twitter but I want to hear you do Don't Speak - No Doubt.

  13. I would like to see you "sign" a song...Jen, I didn't know you were fluent in ASL

  14. Obviously, you have to do the Evanescence song. Just to sing Christian rock.

  15. I like Twitter's recommendation of Testify. =D
    "Eye of the Tiger" is a great karaoke song, and you have to make up actions to the words as you sing it.
