Karaoke Jams: February 2012

Last month I decided to post a monthly log of my Thursday night Karaoke hijinks. January was much more active, you can check out that post for last months song list (which included some obscure cuts from Babes in Toyland, Dokken, and Peaches.) Only made it out once this month! It was the Thursday before Valintine’s Day, we declared the theme ‘Sad Bastard Heartbreak Songs’ — the goal was to make some sad sap at the bar cry into their beer…

Prince – When You Were Mine

An upbeat sound with some more meloncoly lyrics, one of my favorite Prince jams — and i LOVE the Cyndi Lauper version, which is what is linked here since I couldn’t find the original Prince version on YouTube!

Adele – Someone Like You

I’m pretty uneducated when it comes to modern day music hits, i’ll admit. I only downloaded and listened to this song for the first time about an hour before heading out to Karaoke — and it being one of the most utterly heartbreaking songs I’d ever laid ears on — it was the perfect selection for the nights theme. If the lyrics to this one didn’t make anyone cry, my attempt to sing an actual ‘singerly’ song might have! ;)
