If my life were a musical…

So I was thinking that my life should be a musical. However, if that were to happen someone/thing *cough* (I am looking at you God, Elvis, Allah, Horned God, Buddha, Flying Spaghetti Monster, Fate, Gravity, or who/whatever is in control of these things) would have to make it so that I actually had a nice singing voice and could carry some sort of tune. Currently, I cannot! Just ask anyone who has spent more than a few days with me. I know my roommates would agree.

Okay, back to the musical. There are certain songs that just make you want to sing along when someone else is singing. I decided to make a list of the song that would have to be in my musical…

In no particular order:

You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feelin’ – Righteous Brothers (I have actually had a random musical sing along with this one, and let’s just say it was pretty awesome.)

Knock Three Times – Tony Orlando and Dawn (here is a karaoke version to get it all started…actually kind of creepy lyrics now that I read them…)

Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go – Wham!

Livin’ on a Prayer (or Bed of Roses) – Bon Jovi

Mr Vain – Culture Club

Summer of 69 (or almost anything off So Far So Good) – Bryan Adams

Saturday Night – Whigfield (okay, so I really love 90’s dance music!)

Don’t Stop Believing – Journey

All By Myself – Eric Carmen

Build Me Up Buttercup – Foundations

Down on the Corner – CCR

Mr. Jones – Counting Crows

Need You Tonight – INXS

Simply The Best – Tina Turner

Start Me Up – Rolling Stones

Show me the Meaning of Being Lonely – Backstreet Boys

Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen

All I Wanna Do – Sheryl Crow

Beds Are Burning – Midnight Oil

Yesterday – Beatles

We Built This City – Starship (best part is I had a sing-a-long to this on Saturday night at El Furniture, thanks Mr. DJ!)

Downtown – Petula Clark

Okay well, you get the idea. I guess it really just means I have an urge to do Karaoke. Which is why this cab company is BRILLIANT. Cabaraoke! You get to do Karaoke on your way to the bar while you are in the cab! I think we should get a Karaoke machine for our apartment to help us get through the winter, good idea? My dream birthday party: Karaoke, 10 pin cosmic bowling, and mini golf.

Other songs that might make the cut: Never Gonna Give You Up – Rick Astley, Sunglasses at Night – Corey Hart, Holiday – Madonna, Personal Jesus – Depeche Mode, Just Like Heaven – The Cure, The Perfect Drug – Nine Inch Nails, I Think We’re Alone Now – Tiffany, Stand By Me – Ben E King, Lean on Me – Bill Withers, A Whole New World from Aladdin, Bare Necessities from the Jungle Book, I could go on forever.
