Alexander and I went karaoke today and I sang a lot of great songs! So since I haven't done a music post in what feels like ages, here's what I sang today.
1. Pink - Blow Me (One Last Kiss)
This is such a fun song! A lot of stuff by female vocalists strains my voice too much (including some of Pink's other songs), but this was good. I will definitely be singing it again.
2. Fanatic Crisis - Freedom
I love Fanatic Crisis, but never sing anything of theirs at karaoke because I never remember which songs I know well enough to sing. But this time I was making a list before hand and put this one down. I will have to try more in the future, because his voice is definitely in my range.
3. Wham - Freedom
When Alexander saw the Fanatic Crisis song in the queue, he asked if it was Wham's Freedom, which prompted me to put this in, too. This is too high for me and it was the very end of our time, so I had no voice left anyway and I basically laugh-sang my way through it, but it was fun.
4. Concrete Blonde - Joey
Yessssss. This is such an awesome song, and one I never would have thought to sing if I hadn't been going through my favorites in itunes beforehand. Go me for making a list!
5. Jimmy Eat World - Pain
I rocked this song. Good range for me and fun to sing.
6. Kuroyume - Pistol
I sang this last time we went and realised it was really just perfectly in my range and I can sing it well, so now it will be on permanent rotation. XD
7. Marina & the Diamonds - Primadonna
This was the only song they had by her, but it's my favorite and the one I wanted to sing, so happy happy. Way high, but high enough that I could easily sing lower in my natural voice, so it worked out great.
8. NEWS - Sayaendou
I love this song and it's fun to listen to, but I didn't know it was well as I thought I did.
9. OAR - Shattered (Turn the Car Around)
omg another permanent rotation one. XD Wow, this song is so perfect for me. The thing is, I have a decent voice, but really limited range and anything out of this very narrow range sounds thin, but with this song my voice sounded really full and I was just like damn, yes. I need to sing this more! XD
10. Coming Century - Stay Gold
Old school Johnny's! This song is super nostalgic for me as it came out right around the time I started listening to jpop and I can so clearly picture them performing on Music Station and the horrible outfits they wore. N'aww. Fun to sing, too.
11. Backstreet Boys - Straight Through My Heart
As I said to Alexander, this song is the best because DRUM MACHINE. Drum machine makes everything better. I like to stand and bounce around when I'm singing, so yes. Drum machine. (See also: the Coming Century song above.) We also sang Shape of My Heart, but I only know the chorus, so it wasn't as fun.
12. Bryan Adams - Summer of '69
Always a fun song to sing.
13. One Direction - What Makes You Beautiful
Haha, yes, I have no shame (as if you couldn't already tell by many of the above song choices). The lyrics is ridic, but it's so catchy and so much fun.
14. Mr. Children - Youthful Days
I put this on my list because it's not one I've sung before. There are like five million Mr. Children songs and it's overwhelming to choose and I can't remember which ones I know well enough, so I always sing the same handful of songs. This was a fun one to try (and I did know it well).
15. Bowling for Soup - 1985
Alexander sang Teenage Dirtbag and we were getting all nostalgic over the references (Iron Maiden! IROCs!), which made me remember this recent discovery of mine and I was pleased to see they actually had it. Yay for more nostalgia! It's also super fun to sing.
16. Bruce Springsteen - Dancing in the Dark
Oops, almost forgot about this one. And it's another one I wouldn't have thought of without making a list beforehand, since I don't really know/like any other Springsteen songs enough to sing, so I would just skip past his name altogether.
