Karaoke in Abilene
In my younger days I used to participate in a little karaoke. I of course had to have a friend or two by my side, no solo karaoke for me.
Plus it was preceded by a few adult beverages for courage.
There are a few places around town that offer you a chance to display your talents or what YOU seem to think is talent. Everyone’s a superstar in their own mind. I think the strangest place I ever did karaoke was in Houston when I was in college. I had a roommate that was Korean and we went to a Korean karaoke bar. Yes, the lyrics were in Korean, so I did my best to remember the words on my own. It was quite funny and embarrassing I must confess, but no one new me and this was before phones had video technology, thank goodness!!
My next best night was at a friends house who had a personal karaoke machine. His dad was visiting and had brought it with him so we decided it needed a good breaking in; along with the bottle of tequila he brought. Unfortunately none of us were signed by a record label that night. I’m just surprised the police weren’t called thinking we were killing cats.
I asked around to see if any of my running buddies had any pictures of us on stage back in the day, surprisingly the answer was no. Somehow if I was running for office I’m sure some would surface. Our favorite song to sing was B-52’s “Love Shack” and we did it with dance moves and all. Since there doesn’t seem to be any proof, just take my word, we looked and sounded awesome!
