If you had to sing on the karaoke, what song would you go for? 

I think I'd go for Meat Loaf - Paradise by the dashboard light  :D I once did Proud Mary by Tina Turner and lets just say, my Yorkshire accent didn't do it justice.

    Dancing in the Moonlight, the Toploader version, is my go-to. It has to be something everyone else will sing along with, so as to drown out the noise of my monotone wailing.

    ::sings:: There's me in the corner, thats me in the spotlight, losing my religion!! 

    @Parrot123 There is an online singing group called "The Sofa Singers" that meet twice a week.  They charge a membership fee of £10 a month but their website says:
    I'd like to be a member but I can't afford the monthly payment? 
    There are a limited number of bursary memberships available - please email for details. 
    Let us know if you give it a try.

    The first Karaoke song I ever did was a duet, me and my House Parent from College as Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton on Islands in the Stream, because being about 17 at the time I chickened out of doing a solo lol. Suffice to say I was hooked and I've been doing singing for most of the last 27 years since, first solo I did, I think, was that one from Robin Hood Prince of Thieves that was number 1 for 4 months in 1994.

    There's some songs I wouldn't mind doing, Night Games by Graham Bonnet's one but nowhere's got it, not even online.

    I thought of this thread the other day, as I did karaoke for a friend's birthday on Friday. I did Toxic by Britney Spears, Don't Stop Believing by Journey, Baby by Justin Bieber, and A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Calrton, to name but a few 😳
