1:42 pm - Karaoke in Seattle

I just started hosting karaoke in Seattle again!
Tuesday nights @ 9-9:30pm (until last call), no cover.

Skylark Cafe & Club
3803 Delridge Way SW
Seattle, WA 98106

Linked below is my personal collection, but I am going to add the bar's music to my database this weekend so we can start creating consolidated books:


Any other hosts here interested in trading music?  (Please see my wishlist.)  I have .cdg + .mp3 component files (~5MB together) and .bin files (~20MB) of each song.

Hey, I'm new...I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get karaoke tracks by Carrie Underwood or Julie Roberts or Miranda Lambert or other newer female country artists? i am particularly looking for Shania Twain's When and Carrie Underwood's Before He Cheats. I'm in a country competition and think it would be a great song to do. If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated. My email is scarysarey02@hotmail.com.

Hey, I'm new here! I love Kristin Chenoweth beyond life itself. She is god. I met her once and it was a grand old day!

Okay I have a really big favor to ask and I really hope this is allowed... I can't get the Kristin Chenoweth Karaoke CD until Christmas. Like, my parents have bought it, but I need it by a couple of weeks because I want to audition with one of her songs. I haven't gotten to hear it yet so I don't know which one to pick. If anyone has it, is there anyway I can download it now?

I swear I already have bought the CD. I don't know if it's illegal then... I dunno, but I'm really really REALLY desperate. My mom won't let me have it before hand, which is really mean I know, but she's not a nice person.

But, yeah, I LOVE LOVE LOVE her. She's just amazing and the sweetest person. Okay, that is all. Thanks if anyone can do this for me. :)

Konnichi wa... Was lookin' around a few karaoke communities on LJ, and somehow this one seemed to get my attention. Anywho...

I'm a 16-year-old from South Dakota; been doin' karaoke for about... 8-9 years?? I think my new specialty is anime songs and other Japanese songs... ^^U

Dunno what else to say, so I s'pose I'll just wrap this up for now... Bai! ^^

current mood: content for the moment..

5:03 pm - new to me

Hi I've just joined. I love to karaoke. Started going to a regular bar about a year ago in Ohio. Now I've moved back home to Michigan I'm in search of a new karaoke bar. I think I've found one that I like. What is everyone's favorite song to sing?

2:10 pm - If you could pick a song

I'm trying to think of what one Smith's song I'd like to do at Karaoke (as part of the custom disk I'm going to burn). Which would you pick?

9:44 am - The bar didn't look full

Got to Mandarin gate at around 10 PM, and even though there weren't a lot of people there (although notably Ian Fraser of ACT's "Sylvia" was present) I only got in two songs. "Man of Constant Sorrow" was one of those heinous "White Wedding"/parachute won't open kind of moments. Sure, I hadn't heard the song in two years, but that shouldn't have meant that I couldn't remember how to sing the damn thing. I had a bunch of new wave hits in ("I Wanna Be a Cowboy," "Private Idaho," etc.) but gave it all up and did "Only the Lonely" by the Motels just so I could recover from my previous failure. It seemed to go over well, although I was feeling some crumbly bits in my performance. The bartender has improved her drink mixing style, though, and there is now much less fruit juice in my Suffering Bastard and a whole lot more rum.

current mood: thirsty

1:50 am - Howard Bulson is my true love

Amber, Worthy Opponent, and I went to Sorry Charlie's tonight. It was a slow night and people were getting in three song sets. Ours went like this:

Me (someone did "Goody Goody" right before I went up, screwing up my set)
"When You're Good to Mama" - from Chicago
"Break It To Me Gently" - Juice Newton
"For the Longest Time" - duet with Amber, and, truth be told, the entire bar doing backup

"I Have Nothing" - Whitney Houston - this brought the house down. It was the palest white girl in the world up there and it was my sister and where was she KEEPING that talent? Even the old timers were blown away. And she didn't have a second song to sing!

Worthy Opponent:
"Pencil Thin Moustache" - Jimmy Buffet (Howard loved this)
"Sixteen Going on Seventeen" - Sound of Music - duet with me, roles switched

My second set:
"Mein Herr" - Cabaret - we did a new ending on this that I liked better, whispered "good bye"
"The Sweetest Thing" - Juice Newton - Howard was lovely but too much of the song is outside of my happy range. Amber said she's work on some vocal stuff with me tomorrow to push my range more.

"All of Me" - so damn cute!
"Somewhere Over the Rainbow" - sure she didn't know all the words, but no one cared!

It was a fantastic night ... I hated to go home!

current mood: chipper

3:12 am - Hello Kona Kitchen

Got in a nice little set at the Kona Kitchen tonight, where the lovely motomotoyama and runningnekkid had warmed up the house prior to my arrival. Songs included:
"Longest Time" - Billy Joel
"Magic" - Olivia Newton John
"Tie Me Kangaroo Down"
"While My Guitar Gently Weeps"
"Do You Wanna Hold Me" - Bow Wow Wow
"Crazy" - Patsy Cline. Darn big set, huh?

Anyway, the Bow Wow Wow song got me all ramped up, and I felt like it was time to go dancing. I'm sure the huge Kona Punch helped, too - it was definitely kicking it. What a good night! I can't wait to go there when I can order off of the full menu.

current mood: crazy
