Went to a wedding this previous weekend and did a B52 - Love Shack duet just to shut my friend's drunk wife to shut up. I actually had fun. I wanted to sing Wild Wild Life by Talking Heads but we ran out of time.
I also wanted to thank the DeVinyls for that wonderful song and all the perfomances I have been able to watch because of it.
I don't go very often, but over the years it seems like I always kept encountering either Blue Bayou or Daniel My Brother every time I did go out.
I did Leather and Lace once, last minute fill in for someone who chickened out. It got easier when I remembered it was a duet. So that's why the lyrics were in two colors! Apparently I can *sometimes* do an okay Stevie Nicks.
I made a train wreck of Tainted Love once. Not my key. I thought it would be easy. It wasn't. It was on a date with someone who could sing very well and he wanted me to give it a try. I like to sing, but others often don't like it when I do. I can be on key, or off key, I don't always know the difference.
I did Que Sera Sera nicely. This later lent itself to Bear Sera Sera. Small town gay bars can be so fun. Booze and lots of campy music on a playing field not burdened by talent.
I got a polite ovation for When Doves Cry. I was a on vacation in Hawaii. I think it was a welcome change from the regular tunes sung by the regulars. Fresh meat may have been a factor, booze certainly was.
I accidentally did Daydream Believer once. I was in London. The whole pub was singing along, when I realized they were all looking at me and my friends (also American). We were standing in the only spot that had any room (European proximity is so different from American standards). It turns out, it was the one spot that didn't have a view to a monitor, we were one of them. They couldn't believe that we knew the words to one of *their* songs without reading them.
