Sideburns of Festivity '09!!!

Tomorrow features the second outing of the UC to the SC Attractive Historians 2009 - 2010. On tap? Karaoke, karaoke, and the concomitant mixture of triumph and degradation. As Social Czar, how do I prepare? By crafting my meager facial hair into Sideburns of Festivity!!! Check it:


Profile 1: Impassive.


Profile 2: Pensive.


La Visage Meme: Delighted to see you. Available for babysitting.

I'd welcome suggestions as to what I should sing tomorrow, as I want to move beyond Billy Idol or Monkees songs (my mainstays.) Think 80s, think limited vocal range.

When I think of the eighties and I think of limited vocal range, I think of Tainted Love. Too Beginner?

Two Tickets to Paradise.

A: yeah, the problem with Tainted Love (and Mexican Radio and Safety Dance) is that their limited range lends to a kind of boring situation in a karaoke context.

But keep the ideas coming, everyone.

one of these days, i want to go out with you and your lovely wife and watch you sing karaoke. somehow in all these years i have managed to not ever see that, and i believe that is a shame.
also, if you are able to stray from the 80's, tom and i have been cracking up over conway twitty's "i see the want to in your eyes" (i think it was on the family guy yesterday prompting some youtubeing.) i think that it would be fantastic for a karaoke type situation.

The Bangles?

noncoupable, Eternal Flame is the best female duet.

Indeed. I lip-synced it in drama class once for an assignment... but 15 years and a crowd full of Santa Cruz locals... me thinks not

I think your singing abilities are fabulous, with a capital F. Your sideburns are not so fabulous. Shave them. Blunt: yes; true: yes.

They are for a specific purpose, Big C. They will be gone by the end of the weekend.

Personally I'd love to hear a KFR rendition of Cold Hearted Snake by Paula Abdul. Plus, if you hit a part you can't sing it doesn't matter because by singing anything from a female pop singer from the 80's you automatically incite 90% of the women in attendance to sing along with you. You winX2!
