If I sang at karaoke everyone would run screaming from the room.

I can't carry a tune in a bucket!

The only thing musical about me, is my NAME!

Love to sing any of the "Big Band" standards, and some country. My personal favorites are: It had to be you (the Harry Conick Jr. version) I've got you under my skin, Summer Wind, All of me, Time after Time, They Can't take that Away from Me, Nice 'N Easy, Come Fly with Me, (I guess by now you've figured out that I like Sinatra tunes. Country songs I enjoy doing are: Your Man, I left something turned on at home, Long Black Train, I Love this Bar, etc. Actually I enjoy all music, and wish I could sing them all, but my vocal talents are limited!

I have never sung karaoke, but I'm willing to do a duet with skymaster if we ever cruise together again!

Melody..I'll buy you some Pusser's Rum from Tortola (from Pussers Landing)and we can make "Painkillers" (awesome drink) and karoke to the song "Cruising" by Smokey Robinson (or Huey Lewis if you prefer) and we will both be so toasted we won't care what we sound like to others (VBG)

Mean Dean and I can do the duet "Shout" by the Isley Brothers in honor of his affection for the movie "Animal House"..what was the name of the group "Otis and the Knights?"


And Rollerdonna..I would be honored to karoke with you anytime..we could do our own version of "More Then A Woman"..You can do it like the Bee Gees and I 'll do the Taveres version, which should make a very interesting duet (VBG)

Skymaster..have you ever seen Harry Connick Jr in concert doing his big band songs ? If not, try to, he is awesome (and of course from New Orleans) !!!

Venice, if I ever get the chance to see Mr. Connick, you can bet I'll be there. I love big band, as much as you love smooth jazz!
RollerDonna, we absolutely WILL cruise together again in the future, and absolutely WILL sing karaoke together. I'll be hunting a good song for us to do, so we can practice.

See y'all aboard,

Ken

Skymaster..if you love big bands you may want to check out "The Jazz Cruise" which features several big bands ..this year their special guest is Arturo Sandavol with his Cuban All Stars and they are AWESOME and also Roberta Lombardi singing alot of Ella Fitzerald and Billie Holiday with a big band back up...My uncle use to play drums with Lionel Hampton back "in the day" and I love watching old clips of Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Benny Goodman and Nat King Cole

The theme to the Love Boat.
Hey Will I think "Blame all on my roots" is actually Grath Brooks "friends in low places" like all music. Whose going to Karaoke with me on 3CCCs? Okay for the people who haven't karaoked before you don't have to be good. You just have to have fun and people will enjoy it and Mel rum helps.

i have only karoked a couple of times at family gatherings and after multiple drinks. however for my first ever cruise next year my sister wants me to karoke with her. we are still trying to figure out which song to sing to. we were looking for a song thats kinda fun, short and has a good beat so that it wont matter that we dont sound so good. also she will need to give me time to drink down my courage first. (3-4 stiff drinks should do the trick)

I can supply the drinks. Like I said you don't have to be good just give a good performance and I knew you can do it. Just leave you clothes on this time.

I'll tell you what...if you throw in MCBRSCB (Melody) into the mix, I'll join you on the cruise and we can all do a song together

we can all dress up and do one of my favorite songs from the 60's

Any suggestions ?

actually we are trying to get Mel on the cruise with us already. im trying to upgrade to a triple. its just me and my 8 year old son. so far though no luck. the other options that her and i were just talking about last night was to find someone she can share a cabin with. of course i dont know if the cruise is already all booked or not.

EXCELLENT! Thanks for the information! I absolutely will check it out! I was in the U.S. Marine Corps Band for a number of years,,,played all the bass instruments from string bass, tuba, sousaphone, to valve trombone. They never gave me the opportunity to do any vocals, but I sing with various combo's that I played with during my USMC stint.

See you abaord,

Ken

Consider yourself properly spanked, my dear sweet Will!

Okay, I think we need to get the audience drunk before I sing....that's seems like a better plan, cos I'm not a cheap drunk....I would have to not eat all day and then start with shots just to get the nerve to sing!
