diamonds

Studying for my first karaoke

Next Saturday I am joining three women friends (two from the ceramic studio) for my very first karaoke box. Those who know me can attest to the fact that I am a terrible singer– with no memory of lyrics or melody. So I am studying now.

Here’s my initial song list. Please let me know if you have any other ideas for simple yet womanly songs:

  • Que Sera Sera, Doris Day (Incredibly twisted, few lyrics)
  • Diamonds are Forever, Shirley Bassey (Favorable comparison between diamonds and men, double entendre galoure)
  • I’ve Never Been to Me, Charleene (Sick, and very familiar)
  • (They Long to Be) Close to You, Carpenters
  • Doggie in the Window, Patti Page

Several more challenging songs:

  • Self Control, Laura Brannigan
  • Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Green Day (Token male vocal)
  • She’s Not Me, Madonna (Insane jealousy and delusion)

Any other suggestions?
