rock singing

Karaoke Sunday

This was the first time in I don't know how long that I went to The Mint without Mike F, who was out of town. But elgecko said that he and saffroncisco wanted to go, so I did show up, along with mike20. We had a blast. More about socializing than singing for me, as I only did two songs and very familiar, relatively easy ones at that: Steely Dan's "Do it Again" and Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World". I'd heard mike20 sing before of course but not at karaoke; he did a fine job, particularly on Lou Rawls' "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine", which always makes me swoon. saffroncisco delighted us with her beautiful voice and impressive range on Billy Joel's "She's Got a Way", and elgecko did a great version of Prince's "Kiss".

Amazingly I was there for a good six hours, and would have stayed longer had I not had to work today. The excellent company was well worth the sleep deprivation. :-)
