We had the most hysterical time at karaoke on Saturday night, did my sister, Antony and I. None of us were as much in the mood for going as we should have been but by the time the floor opened we changed our tune rapidly because of the bunch of extremely eccentric types that suddenly materialised.
The dude who opened thewas the seemingly self styled “Rocking Rick” and he took it upon himself to introduce his songs with a little bit of the history/trivia surrounding the artist, the era, the song meaning etc and he moved around the floor like a latter day , with all the flash moves and charming smiles to the audience which at that time consisted of like, five people, the three of us included. He was very amusing. Good voice but very amusing.
The next chap who caught our attention was this fella, who looked like the Talking Heads (he insisted on these pink sunglasses which he wore all night long):version of from
HYSTERICAL! HE WAS EVEN MORE HILARIOUS COS HE TOOK HIMSELF AND HIS MUSIC VERY SERIOUSLY.. (SORRY FOR CAPS)… He spent absolute ages poring over thechoosing his songs but at the end of it all I think we only heard him sing “You”ve Lost that Loving Feeling” and , both of which he did in a way that had the three of us rolling around….
I forgot!! My sister recorded him!! he had this way of saying BABY in the “ ” song that had us roaring with laughter… WordPress not allowing an upload but if I get it right you”ll hose yourself too and you”ll hear us in the background singing “BEBE BEBE” with him…. Might have to upload to FB instead…
I went to get the file from him and got embroiled in a conversation I couldn’t make head or tail of – felt like I’d consumed the better part of a bottle of brandy cos I couldn’t even begin to understand what he was driving at – seemingly he was saying the music was not what we expected, dunno if he meant in the files or on the floor, or the singers, or what… I just nodded and smiled fondly at him and said Pardon a lot and then retreated clutching the file….
He had a sister who looked just like him except that she never had a smidgeon of his sartorial elegance and was dressed in pants and a pink top and looked like she’d just come out of the nearest bus stop or shelter under a bridge somewhere and she seemed to be his biggest fan… she was quite something in her own right…
Honestly, we felt like we’d had some acid dropped on us, the night was too much. I cant even go into the other people yet cos just playing the video of this bloke has my sister and I rolling around again.
Part II to follow…..
a scream!! really!!
