Jennifer, so sorry about Cosmo's eyes. Weird that the pressure test came back normal.
Erin, I never liked George Michael when he was really popular but I remember watching him perform on American Idol a few years ago and just being blown away at his actual singing skill. I'm not a big fan of his style but I downloaded Father Figure on my iPod just to sing along with because I'm so impressed by his technique. Your raving post actually made me go download One More Try! I would SO love to go Karaoke with you! My specialty is Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On from Titanic. Super cheesy, I know ... but I was really into the movie when it came out and I remember telling DH (very soon after we had met) that I could sing that song better than Celine Dion could. He refused to believe me, and one night we went to a bar with some work friends of mine and it was Karaoke night. Everyone kept trying to get me to sing and I was too nervous (I had developed horrible stage fright when I was a voice major) but at the very end of the night I got up and sang it. I don't like to sound arrogant, but I blew everyone in the bar away. They all stared at me, jaws dropped, and the DJ wanted to know why I hadn't sung anything all evening. DH was blown away too, and I always thought of it as "our song" because of that. Sadly, DH was really drunk and didn't really remember it afterward. He doesn't remember that happening at all anymore. He decided our song was Footloose. Primarily for the humor value. It has always pissed me off. Wow, tangent. I think I've only gone to Karaoke twice and I'm a little nervous. My training is singing art songs and such, so I'm afraid I would sound like an idiot singing the stuff I really enjoy listening to.
I always had some complex inner story for songs I enjoyed, too - and they were either about me or some boy I had a crush on. Depended on the focus of the song. I wonder why we all stopped doing that? I kind of miss it.
Oh, and Erin - my Aerosmith obsessive song was What it Takes. I sang/listened to that constantly for an extended period of time. That would be fun in Karaoke.
