Default What the worst thing you ever did at a Karaoke Bar?

Heya!

I'm sure most of those of us over the legal drinking age have been in a karaoke situation or two .. or many more. Maybe you were good up there, swaying in front of the prompter with your eyes closed singing "Total Eclipse of the Heart" with feeling.

But maybe you sucked, hard. And sucking is an important part of what Karaoke is about because if you wanna hear someone be good at it, you might as well go home and listen to your albums.

So what is your most awful karaoke moment?


I have a couple, but I think one is slightly worse than the other .. possibly. Me and a friend tried to find the most retarded song we could sing in a Karaoke bar and we ended up singing Enigma's "Return to Innocence", complete with the stupid native yodel crap. Who the hell would put that song in a karaoke catalogue anyways?

Of course, we did it on purpose, but when I was on stage, I realized I maybe hadn't understood how awful it was going to be .. Bloody hell.


For those who don't know the song, here it is :

Enigma - Return to Innocence

I have never done Karaoke in my life and I will try to keep that going as long as I can. They probably would'nt have the tunes I would want to Blurt out anyhow. Lolz at the Enigma track. At least it wasnt the first album. Most of it is Gregorian chants (although I do have a soft spot for it )

This other time, I was singing Madonna's "Like A Virgin" with some drunk mates and I squeaked up a powerful falsetto voice .. and a few seconds in, I realized my mike was the only one that was turned on. >.<

My friends left me there on stage and I stood there, performing the whole song solo while people who walked past the stage pointed at me and called me an idiot.

Good times!

Drunk as a lord, large amount of mates, lots of hugging, Don't Look Back In Anger. Brilliant.

I won second place in a karaoke contest in the dead of winter in this redneck bar in rural Wisconsin where the average patron was a least two or three teeth short of a full set and most likely rode a snowmobile there. To qualify for the final round everybody had to sing something a cappella so my buddy and I did "Enter Sandman" which was pretty hilarious. After the contest was over, this overweight, middle-aged trailer trash woman asked me if I wanted to sing "Summer Lovin'" with her. I said sure, and while we were in the middle of singing, she pinched my ass!

It was this song...without the fancy footwork in the video. Three other friends and I. And might I add, I have THE most horrible singing voice ever. Dogs start howling.




Shut up.

we had planned to go to a karaoke bar one night, and all got hammered before setting out. However, we stopped at a regular bar first that happened to have a live band playing that night. Me and another girl thought this was the karaoke bar, jumped up on stage, and started singing along with the lead singer. Luckily he and most of the other people in the bar thought it was hilarious.

So not technically in a karaoke bar, but definitely worth a mention
