If you pay me enough, I’ll sing these songs at a karaoke bar

Plinky brought a new question to the forefront of my mind, and again it had something to do with music. Well, the first question it asked was something, something, presidential cabinet, something, something. Blah, blah, blah. I’m trying to do better with my political savvy, but for now I’ll stick to my music!

“Name three songs you could be convinced to sing at a karaoke bar.”

Keep Yourself Warm by Frightened Rabbit

“Keep Yourself Warm” has less than appropriate lyrics. It’s a crude song about the pitfalls of sexual abandon. The singing is not your classically trained vocal mellifluousness, but rather something else. Something less restrained and showing wild abandon itself. I don’t sing too well as it is…did I mention that?

Undone by Weezer

There are, perhaps, two main parts in this song. I’d probably try to sing them both at the same time, which really just sounds dumb. I did a bit with this in High School. A friend and I banged out the song in harmony the way a chisel and hammer sound harmonious when banged together. It was a great time!

Loser by Beck

Can one embarrass themselves with this song? Truly? It’s a ridiculous song. Perhaps the embarrassment is that I wouldn’t need the lyrics to belt it out. I *know* this song.


  1. I hate that stupid “Keep Yourself Warm”song. I love you but I’d get up and leave if you sang that one…and I’d take the keys.

  2. I’d sing with you, even though I don’t know the songs. Then your wife wouldn’t leave you and take the keys. She’d be laughing too hard to move!
