Five People You Will Meet At Karaoke Night
Oh Karaoke night! What a night. I know to the seasoned, accomplished and "upper class" musician, karaoke is not the entertainment form of choice nowadays. For those who are willing to just let down their hair for a night of messy, vocally abusive, sometimes ear shattering fun, karaoke is the perfect interactive, ice breaking form of pub entertainment you'll find.
That said, here are 5 people you'll definitely run into on the karaoke scene:
1. THE PITCH KING or QUEEN
Some of you might know that some karaoke tracks/software allow you to lower the pitch of a song so the lower range singer can sing all of Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Ariana Grande higher register songs on their own vocal terms. "Hey man, i'll sing when a man loves a woman by Michael Bolton......DOWN TWO!"
2. THE UP AND COMING ARTIST
Now these guys are way better suited for actual open mic shows or freestyle battle shows but they will be the ones that demand we load up one of their original songs or beats so they can perform to get the free promo. "Yo, lemme do an original, man."
3. THE EDUCATED SINGER
They'll be the ones with a music theater background or degree. They'll probably stick to singing songs by Barbara Streisand or Minelli. They'll be the only ones in the room who actually understand what each karaoke track means when they tell you what key the song is in. "Ahh wind beneath my wings in the Key of Emajorminordepression...my favorite, dahling."
4. THE INTROVERT EXTROVERT
He's jumping! He's dancing! He's drinking! He's cheering! He's never singing. Ever.
5. THE UNDERCOVER STAR
Like that show Undercover Boss, there's always that one singer in the crowd who is an undercover superstar and should probably have a record deal already. She looks like us, walks like us, talks like us....but has the voice of Jesus and Fergie. You bettah sannnnnggggg gurrrl!
So much fun and different types of people to be seen and heard at karaoke nights. At the end of the day, it's all about the endorphins. Find yourself a good karaoke night to go out to with some good friends and you'll definitely have some laughs and love.
Sing like water, my friends!
