Weekend Assignment #45

Weekend Assignment #45: Karaoke Time

Limber up your windpipes, boys and girls, because this week's Weekend Assignment is getting musical:

Weekend Assignment #45: It's karaoke time. Pick a song to sing and explain why you chose it.  

The song I pick is "Little Sister" by Elvis Presley, the only reason I say this, is it was the song I sang when I was hynotized and they told me I was someone famous and I was actually performing it to the audience.  I wish I could remember this or at least had it on video.  When I left the Comedy Club, people were coming up to me and asking me did they pay me to be part of the act, and people were hollering, "Elvis has left the building".  This song has been my little song since I was a little boy.  It was on the other side of "Jailhouse Rock", on those little 33 records.  The first time my sister got a  microphone, I couldn't quit singing the song, with a little leg action thrown in. 

Extra Credit: Recall the worst karaoke performance you ever heard (or, if you're brave, ever performed). The worst was the night I had too much to drink and decided to try and sing "Desperado"   I think I got bood off stage.  Too bad they didn't have "Little Sister".  I'm good at Elvis songs.

Great song to do right - and I can imagine the other one going wrong all too easily! - Karen

Wow, how did it feel to be hypnotized?
